Forums  /  The Site  /  Best way to handle new timing method

We want to change the timing for a single category (variable subcategory) to loads-removed on a leaderboard without affecting the others. We also want to keep track of RTA for it. From the looks right not it is not possible to use the built-in feature for just one category and turning it on for the whole game seems to reportedly have some catastrophic consequences due to poor implementation.

What would be the best solution for this without risking bricking the whole board? Would enabling IGT and using that field work? How does timing priority work? I don't want to turn it on just to test it. I am also hesitant to do so in case all the current times, which are RTA, get irreversibly shifted over to IGT for some reason. Safest bet seems to be for us to use the time field for the load-removed times and put RTA in the comments, though obviously not being presented very well.

In Edit Game -> Info there's a "Show empty time columns" toggle which you can set to off. This would make it so that the single category with RTA no loads and RTA would show both columns, whereas all others would only show a "Time with loads" column. This also means that moderators would have to double-check every submission to make sure that the "Time without loads" field is blank for submissions in every other category.

Just putting RTA no loads times in the time field and RTA in the comments sounds like a lot less hassle to me but there is that option.

There was a thread that said enabling times without loads will switch every currently submitted time to times without loads. I absolutely want to avoid something like that from happening.

If that's true then just put the RTA no loads in the current time field. That sounds awful to deal with.

Yea it would be a bit jank, but would be a working solution. That's why I made this thread first to know for sure.
