I know the rules say that showing the emulator window + border is strongly recommended, but if I cannot do so, can I still submit?

Thanks 🙂

Are you using Bizhawk? Also why would you not be able to do that?

No, I don't use Bizhawk. I'm not able to do that because the last times I tried, it wouldn't show the window correctly every time I tried it.

some emulators you'll need to do "desktop capture" then use "crop pad" to cut it down to the emu window.

What emulator do you use? What category are you interested in running? We are in the middle of redoing some emulation rules and the safest bets at the moment are Bizhawk and Mednafen.

I wasn't planning on running it yet, but I do want to learn it in the future. I would want to try Glitchless% and Glitchless 100% (even though there's no category for it). As for which version of the game I would want to run, I think my computer would be able to handle either the PS or PS2 version of the game.

Thanks for the information, though. I will keep this in mind for later.

There is no such thing as a PS2 version. Use Bizhawk when you run. Also if you stream your attempts live the full emulator window rule does not apply.

I will stream my attempts live when I play. I will use Bizhawk. Thank you for the information.
