Papers, Please Forum  /  Timing rules

I have noticed that for the vast majority of categories there is no defined rules for when to start and stop the timing. Obviously the timing starts upon selecting New as the first input. However there is no consensus on when the timing should end. For ending 1 and ending 2 Clicking on Glory to Arstotska at the end of the ending ( i.e last input) is being used but this is due to convention rather than specific rules. It is my opinion that we need to set a standard for when the timing should finish. I am fine with any number of options but there should be one definition that we always use to aviod any issues.


Ending timing on last input ("Glory to Arstotzka"), which is now being used in E1 and E2, would make a bit more sense since you get to play out the ending and you include every single input in the game into the run. Letting the ending scene roll also makes sense as proof you, for example, didn't get Ending 1 on day4 in an Ending 2 run
