Timing difference between FCEUX and Bizhawk

The only difference in timing that I am aware of is the 1 extra lagged frame at the beginning of the run in FCEUX. Otherwise identical as far as I know.

Other Comments

Thanks to EZGames69 for making a run for a good comparison. Thanks to mtvf1 for the encode.

GoddessMaria: Judging...

GoddessMaria: Hm. As far as gameplay is concerned, it's lackluster. The optimization is most certainly there, however, the entertainment leaves something to be desired. The audience reception reflects this by how slow-placed it is. Granted that it's more due to the game itself than the run, but it's still an issue.

Accepting for Vault.

feos: Pub, after Wild Arms.
