Hi guys, could someone clarify why this track is called "Fastest Start"? It's a fastest completion variation, but involves triggering a certain screen? Apologies in advance for my lack of expert knowledge on this title! Likewise, I should clarify this for the 2 Fastest kill screen activation tracks (although they are kinda explained in the rules).
Thanks in advance

A "start' is classified as levels 1 through 4. After 4-5 (the rivet screen) the level order is exactly the same until the killscreen on level 22 (so 17 full levels, 5-21, of 6 boards)
So specifically this fastest start track is a speedrun from the start of the game until you clear board 4-5, on your first life.
Hope that helps :)

ROMset: dkongLives: 3Bonus life: 7000Note: Using older WolfMAME versions may result in slower overall times. Since TG technically allows all WolfMAME versions for competition, there will be no restriction hereSpecial rules:1) Timer starts with the first movement of Jumpman at the beginning of the game.2) The timer stops the instant the last rivet is pulled on 4-5. This is considered to be when Jumpman passes over the rivet and the rivet disappears3) MUST be obtained on your first life. Any death will result in immediate disqualification4) Can be part of any game, provided it adheres to the rules of this particular track5) Only a 1 Player game using 1UP will be acceptedAccurate timings can be determined using frame advance while playing back the INP, and the refresh rate of the specific MAME version that was used.Definition of a "start": Reaching Level 5 WITHOUT the loss of a life. As to maintain consistency, this track is a first-life only track.
