Forums  /  Garfield Kart  /  The Real Time column for IL runs is wrong.

While investigating how Garfield Kart handles timing, I discovered that on every timestep (1/60 second), approximately .667 ms of real time is discarded due to delta time truncation. This yields roughly 40 ms of time not counted per second, or 2.4 seconds per minute. Now, this sort of time loss isn't uncommon in games that handle time in an integer fashion, but the real time column in IL is simply the IGT. For Divad's current Sneak A Peak run, the real time is displayed as 2 min 04 seconds 840 ms. However, a bit of algebra yields an estimated 2 min 09 seconds 160 ms actual time. Now, nobody is doing their timings off the real time column, but its current state of being equal to IGT is misleading. Either remove the column, or time the run video!
