Excellent thank you. :)

 

The speed increase is quite noticeable and makes it more playable. I used to sometimes play the original at a higher speed than normal to make it more 'lively' but with this version its a nice balance 'as is'

Well, I finally got around to updating this.

 

I managed to wring just a touch more speed out of it, in both 48k and 128k modes.  Testing the Central Cavern air timer gives about two seconds shaved off of the previous version and back-to-back testing between the two reveals a slight, but still noticeable increase in frame rate.

 

An updated Turbo JSW will also follow in a day or two... B)

Thanks, dude.

 

I look forward to somebody who can play it better than me sticking a longplay up on YouTube.  I'm still stuck on the Revenge Of The Kong Beast... :rolleyes:

If its any consolation I used to really struggle sometimes with Menagerie until I realised I could simply jump on a crumbly and wait (easy solution but no the best or quickest by any means) to sort my issues with that cavern.

 

Both Kong screens I have not really had that much of an issue with, it is easier to not flip the second switch at a price of losing points/score though.

 

The WareHouse I will struggle to complete and SkyLabs usually causes me problems although studying the pattern a bit does help.

 

Solar Power I can do but its a kind of 50/50 if there's enough air for me! :D
