    Hardware/Settings in beginning, case taken at 12:13. Difficulty switches set to A, unchanged during gameplay(who could do that anyway???).
    FINALLY!!!
    This was hard. Really hard, not for the unstubborn, lol-you gotta nail it near perfect, or it won't happen.
    Was unsure about the moneybag, but when I nabbed the gun the way I did, I was definitely holding my breath from there, knew I had a shot!
    Once again, tho for the most part I am afraid of your Jedi skills, thanks for making me unafraid of this game, Pete , and thanks a Million for the technical tips, Greg!!!
    1:03!!!
    Wooo!!!
    Never an excuse to be bored, if there's an Activision timer around.
    :)
    Thanks Everyone!!!

    Gemstick used for this attempt-as well as I can remember, this is the first time I've used it to score, tho I'm probably wrong.

    Other than Dragster, I actually usually use a 2600 flashback stick, the very cheap model-it is easy on the hands, pretty responsive, but flimsy as heck. With the direction changes in this game, I was afraid I was going to snap it(I've broken one with Dragster already, lol, the reason I won't play Dragster with one!), so I decided to think outside the box a bit.

    I actually had one of these in the 80's, I remember playing Spider-Man with it.
    I complain pretty bad at first, the button is just weird, but the stick feels pretty good.

    Anyway-
    Case Solved, Quick, Fast, and in a Hurry.
    :)

    Super fast, not a pixel wasted. There was a lot remaining on that last second. Good body of work.

    Wasn't quite how he explained it, but from the way Greg explained it to me I interpreted to do it fast and right, but the biggest thing as far as the time was basically "screen distance covered"-I was thinking "shorten it up", you can't go past the moneybag, gun, and Henri, you have to barely nip them.

    I dunno, may seem duh, lol, but thinking "shorten up the screen", tho not quite technically accurate, was the thinking that helped me.

    Thanks!!!
