ToeJam & Earl Forum  /  Clarification on Timing
  HoodyTwoShoesHoodyTwoShoes
(edited: )

For starters, I want to say that it's sweet that so many runs have been coming in lately! Keep it up! With that, there has been a little bit of confusion about timing so I'd like to clear that up for everybody.

You should be starting your timer at the same time you select your world. So before starting the timer you will have to select either "Play as ToeJam", "Play as Earl", or "Play as ToeJam & Earl". You start the timer at the same time as you select whether you are playing on the Random World or the Fixed World. When you finish your run, (Hot Tub and Funk Lord are different, I will give separate rules for them further below) you should stop the timer at the same time as the screen goes black when you touch the 10th ship piece. You don't have to wait for the ship piece animation to complete.

Hot Tub% Timer Stopping Point:
You should stop the timer when you see and hear the splash. I will go frame by frame in the verification to see where the timer was when the splash sprite appears. We currently don't have the option to differentiate between tenths of seconds. If, for example, two people had two different runs of 1:00.98 and 1:00.42, they would be listed as tied for their respective position. So make sure to put your full time in the comment of your submission.

Funk Lord% Timer Stopping Point:
You stop the timer at the same time that the "Funk Lord" text comes up after all of the fireworks have completed. It is at that point that you are officially a "Funk Lord".
