    Since this submission is taking longer than normal Im assuming some have read into JJT's comment too much.

    JJT is either wrong or he mispoke. Im pretty sure the latter.

    Start Time does NOT affect race time.

    Essentially I am playing this on harder settings than the rules call for, which IS ALLOWED in TG.

    @JJT_Defender could you please clarify your statement about race time? Im guessing thats what may be holding up this submission.

    I'm sorry but your start time bonus settings are wrong. It's supposed to be 80 not 70, voting no :(

    The 'Start Time' is how much time it gives you at the beginning of a race to reach a checkpoint. It has no effect on one's race time. It's playing on harder settings, which is allowed at TG as long as it has no effect on scoring/time. I have many other submissions that have been accepted on these same settings as well. The reason I did it is so I wouldnt have to wait as long to start over when I screw up in a race.

    I had anyway, Ive since changed the settings back because some people didnt understand the rules about harder settings and my submissions would linger in the queue for a few more days than normal.

    I don't understand the harder settings rule either.Where is that written in the TG guidelines or global rules? I can't find it.

    There are hundreds of things which are allowed which aren't explicitly spelled out in the TG rules section. Flash Carts for example, or Super Gameboys, tons of things.
    If the rules call for a game to be played on 'normal' settings, its acceptable for the gamer to play on harder settings as long as it doesn't give one an advantage where points/time is concerned.
    If you would like I could link MANY accepted submissions which do this.
    @redelf would you mind confirming that gamers are allowed to play on harder settings than is stated in the rules?
