    The final time will read 10:36.3 however when I put the video in vegas studios and trimmed it from start to finish, the proper time came to 10:36;07. I started the timer slightly late from the start however was even more late hitting the pause button at the finish time when I lost control of my character. That is the discrepancy in the milliseconds.

    I checked this out this morning. I forgot the exact calculations, but it looked like10:33's to me. With the late start, and like you pointed out, at the end--You lose control and you didn't stop the timer for a few seconds.

    Oh 10:33 sounds better. I just rechecked the time. I ended up with 10:36;07. Definitely recheck if you feel the time is off. I appreciate you supporting this run. One of my favorite games.

    Ok, I thought you lost control immediately after the final blow at 11:16 on the TG player. 10:36.07 looks good to me..

    Accepted!

    I use to run this game a lot a few years ago. I am basically using Speedrun.com's parameters. One reason I ran my character all around after destroying the plane is because you still have control for a little bit. By me running my character around you get a true sense of when the character loses control because the character will automatically stop. My best time ever for this game is 10:15 which is going to be very tough but I am hoping to do it here eventually.
