I was looking into the runs here and noticed that Zen_Aku's game seemed to be running faster than gerudokupo's. So I decided to look into it to see if I was crazy, and if I wasn't, whether it meant a game was running slow or a game was running fast. Here are my findings: https://imgur.com/a/yuuw3oE

As shown, Zen_Aku's game is running faster, and from my own timings (not recorded) gerudokupo's game is running the same speed as mine. This obviously creates a problem where incorrect emulation is granting a sizable advantage- if the 18:38 was running the same speed as the 19:34, it would be roughly 21:00!

The simplest course of action would be to remove the offending runs that have the game running too fast. In the past when the game speed increase has been an accident, however, I've seen run timings adjusted to what they "should" have been to not invalidate them entirely.

I run the 3D Realms Anthology version of the game, He has the shareware one.

Interesting- I had suspected it was an emulation setting difference, not that it could be a version difference. If I had (or could acquire) that version I'd run some timing comparisons between your version, kupo's version, Anthology on my machine, and Dosbox defaults to see if it's version or computer dependent.

edit: actually, is the version available on Steam the same as the anthology version?

Thanks for bringing this to attention. We can discuss this further if/when it becomes relevant, in the meantime, enjoy my new run 🙂
