Alien Swarm has its own in-game time counter, that it uses for its achievements and that we’ve used to time ILs with. It’s pretty robust, handles the game’s stimpacks (which slow timescale to .45) properly, it’s never shown any inaccuracies. Problem is, it only displays seconds, and we’ve tied several ILs already because of this.
I don’t really want to switch to RTA for a variety of reasons. I don’t think tied WRs are a problem.
But, is there an easy way to get a more accurate in-game timer for this game? Could we just mod the timer it has to display decimals? I’d rather not resort to a separate timer like the livesplit plugins or whatever, because it’d be pretty difficult to guarantee its accuracy. But some sort of solid decimal in-game timer for this game would probably make everyone happier.
