(edited: )

`ASL STATUS:` broken in Rebirth and Revelations. Still mandatory in any% for PC.
After finishing the run, remove 1:27.099 from the final time.

The timing methods for black ops 1 any% was always confusing for many people, and now with the recent timing method changes it may be even more confusing, so this forum post is going to explain in details how it works.

PC TIMING

PC runs must use the ASL to make re-timing easier for mods, but for purpose of knowing, the timing method is:

- Timer starts when mouse cursor disappears after skipping the first load of Operation 40.
- Timer ends when seeing ‘Objective Complete’ at the end of Redemption.

----LOADS----

Loads in General:
- Load starts when seeing the mouse cursor appearing at the end of the mission.
- Load ends when seeing the mouse cursor disappearing at the start of the following mission.

The Defector:
- Timer starts when the map kinda glitch out, showing a part of it for a frame and then going white screen again.
- Timer stops when load for the following mission starts.

WMD:
The load that starts this mission works the same way as a normal load, but this mission also has a cinematic that is a load on it.

Rebirth:
The timer for this mission starts in the first frame the screen begins fading out from full white.

Revelations:
This mission starts with a chair cinematic that is a load; the timer for Revelations starts at the first frame that you gain control of Mason.

Chair Cutscenes:
There are some first person cutscenes of Mason’s interrogation between some missions, they are loads.

Xbox 360/Xbox One/Xbos Series

Keep in mind that console runs are going to receive re-timing as it does not have an ASL; the timing method is:

- Timer starts when ‘game save’ icon disappears in Operation 40.
- Timer ends when seeing ‘Objective Complete’ at the end of Redemption.

----LOADS----

Operation 40:
- Timer starts when ‘game save’ icon fully disappears.
- Timer stops when load for the following mission starts.

Vorkuta, Executive Order, S.O.G., Project Nova, Victor Charlie, Crash Site, WMD, Payback, and Redemption:
- Timer starts when ‘game save’ icon appears.
- Timer ends when load for the following mission starts.

The Defector:
- Timer starts when the map kinda glitches out, showing a part of it for a frame and then going white screen again.
- Timer stops when load for the following mission starts.

Numbers:
- Timer starts when 'game save' icon ''blinks'' (disappears and appears again).
- Timer stops when load for the following mission starts.

Rebirth:
- Timer starts in the first frame the screen begins fading out from full white.
- Timer stops when load for the following mission starts.

Revelations:
This mission starts with a chair cinematic that is a load; the timer for Revelations starts at the first frame that you gain control of Mason.

WMD:
The load that starts this mission works the same way as listed before, but this mission also has a cinematic that is a load.

Chair Cutscenes:
There are some first person cutscenes of Mason’s interrogation between some missions, they are considered loads.
