It was originally an idea from Stephh a long time ago, to see if the emulation could be faster on raine for a game like this one !
It took me years to find the motivation to do it, but I decided that finally it was more than time for that.
In the end it's a bad choice for a speed test because it's extremely sensitive to the nmi frequencies. Plus it's some old hardware, on modern hardware it's easy to emulate nowdays. Still these nmis gave me some trouble. In the end, it's still a nice gam
