As in the previous topic, you can post your videos here and Brightguy will add them to the site. If you're new to Super Mario 64 speedrunning and would like to participate in the competition, you can read the rules at the following site:

All credits go to yoshielectron for this amazing code.

Why it should be allowed:

- No need to verify video timing.
- It proves that it's not a TAS, since it can't be used on Mupen.
- Sped up falls don't make a difference, since they also speed up the timer.

i agree with z0MG.
could this also mean that the pj64 par wouldnt be needed for timed things?

When does the timer start exactly? Remember that the official timing for the competition starts during the last all-white frame, which is one frame before the level loads. I guess that the official timing will have to change if this timer is as exact as it seems to be...

I timed z0MGe's video with the usual timing, and I got 11.3 (starting from the last all-white frame) and 11.2 (starting from the frame in which the level loads). Both of those times are different from the 11.5 that the timer gets. Weird... Maybe in-game time is different from real time? We'll have to test more videos before using this code as an official timer.

I timed bobmario511's video now, and I got 12.8. The timer says it's 12.9... I'm confused. O_o

Could the timer be prone to lag?

ameba2: The timer starts at the right frame, and the reason the time you got was lower is that it has a sped-up fall. This also speeds up the timer, so sped-up falls don't make a difference anymore; what the timer shows is what the time would be if you compared the fall to a normal fall, and added the right number of frames, to compensate for sped-up falls. Try it if you're unsure.

My old one had a sped up fall. This one was redone with the timer code, which is accurate.

Anyway, it was 6"90, not 6"96 or anything else, so there's no way it was 7"0.
