This is a little bit experimental, but hopefully it works right. It checks a constantly-changing address(which pauses when the player pauses, so hopefully that continues to work right) to determine how much time has passed, and seems to be fine so far.

I'm mostly just curious how long it takes people to beat the game start-to-finish; although it's not specifically blocking stage-select, for obvious reasons it should only start in Toxic Caves since you shouldn't be able to improve your time by jumping right to the end.

It should submit when you hit "Level 5" which is the ending-cutscene..

Okay actually it won't pause during bonus-tables, but just use emulator-pause if you need to. Also hopefully no one's trying to do a run immediately like I did, I forgot lives go down to zero when you beat the game and I had that as a cancel-condition(so I lost that attempt). Now it just submits exactly when Robotnik's defeated.
