All courses now have time trial leaderboards. Throw down some rad times!

Had to wipe the leaderboards due to an error in the time keeping logic, sorry. As a consolation I've created a high score leaderboard so you can see how you stack up against world records.

Keltron3030
A caveat, world record runs demand original hardware not emulation.

If someone could please delete my times from the leaderboards I'd appreciate it. My system was hiccuping oddly (apparently due to Nvidia drivers) as I was playing earlier, and I am pretty certain some of the times that got uploaded are somewhat off.

Keltron3030
You want me to clear all 4 top times you got?
15 Oct 4:28 2018
LordArchantos
Yes please. Otherwise I'll feel like a cheat as I can't be sure, as especially my Course 5 time seems definitely too fast even if I did have a good run. :)
