it would be fun to have a timer built in the game, since the game does slow down at times and your time depends on how good your computer is.
Hey! That's a good point, I'll think about adding that.
BTW, I'm assuming you're the person who set up a Speedrun.com page for this game? It'd be awesome if you could join the Legend of Xenia speedrunning discord, the rest of the guys have some feedback for you about categories, timing etc.
