This seems so, yes.

And it seems to me that it's impossible to open 8 pairs in
"oxyd.extra" compatibility mode in 5 seconds. (Of course it would be
nice if someone could confirm this.)

And under these circumstances, I think this world record is impossible.

BTW: There are a few other levels with records of which I think they are

They are, indeed. F.e. "The Builder" in 4 seconds, ...

Being aware that 0.92 scores are not reliable the scores are tagged in 1.00 with the Enigma version they have been achieved. Thus we may decide to outdate 0.92 scores and world records in future.

0.92 scores could be cheated. But the problem with the scores of the few persons that did submit their scores was the missing versioning of levels. The same persons did test the levels from each other. And any score they achieved with a prerelease was recorded. But the experimental prereleases did often contain shortcuts which did lead to unrealistic "world records".

For this reason 1.00 added level versioning and the "status" with its values "released", "stable", "test", "experimental" - only "released" levels will record scores.

BTW Enigma 1.00 records 2 scores for each level and difficulty. Your absolute best score and the best score that you achieved with the most recent Enigma version. If we decide to drop old scores your second score will be valid if the best score is too old.
