Who wants a free time save?

On the right vid I keep close to Cat after each 'checkpoint' and she goes faster. Works with Black Cat 3 and probably 2 as well.
Could be done better too. I think if you get far away she slows down, the first chase I think she's at the lowest speed the whole time.

I also switch the token behind the warehouse for one at the start.

It seems like she only really slows down when you're really far from her. Do you think there's a difference in speed between medium and close distance?

I'm going to guess no, and even if it is, it might be too small a difference to notice or measure.

So i just did some timing tests with cat chase 3 part 1 (the one in chapter 8 that ends in a cutscene before starting another section of the cat chase) and got some surprising results. I did three different versions of the section, one where I followed as close as possible to her the whole way, one where I tried to stay in the middle (~40 to 60% of the bar) and one where I tried to stay as far away as possible (~60-90% of the bar). Keep in mind once i saw her make the last jump and start running to where the cutscene takes place i got close again for the last two so i could make sure i made it and didnt waste time/invalidate the test by making her wait.

Also I did each test twice for more reliable info.

Here are my results.
close: 1st attempt: 26.6 | 2nd Attempt:26.6
medium: 1st attempt: 31.2 | 2nd attempt: 33.3
far: 1st attempt: 37.7 | 2nd attempt: 40.6

I think we can say for sure that there's a somewhat linear relationship between how far you are from cat and how fast she goes at this point, and its actually somewhat significant.

Also this doesn't seem to apply to the first cat chase: I tried timing the regular route through the cat chase and another staying as close as possible (except going for the shop) and both ended up being a mid 2:07
