    Dispute Evidence / Rationale
    According to Rodrigo Lopes's YouTube video description, this is part of his Link's Awakening DX speedrun. The border around the game is from the Super Game Boy.



    However, Super Game Boy runs Game Boy games at a faster frame rate, which allow for faster speedruns.
    There has been some talk in the past about banning Super Game Boy usage such as this topic:
    https://www.twingalaxies.com/showthre...Super-game-boy

    A few years ago, I brought this up in the "Impossible Scores on the Scoreboard" thread and suggested a time conversion using the Speed Demos Archive (SDA) time conversion.

    Using this SDA topic:
    https://kb.speeddemosarchive.com/Super_Game_Boy_timing

    Multiplying Rodrigo Lopes's time of 1:36:11 by 1.024115, which is the number that SDA came up with, I get 1:38:30. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong here.

    This speedrun should be moved to a new track or have the time edited to 1:38:30. I'd prefer a time edit and maybe a note that Super Game Boy was used.

    Proof that the border in the final moments video is from Super Game Boy:

    This dispute should have the same result as the one for the other version of Link's Awakening or have the time adjusted:
