Extra tracks: trackTimerAdjust

Name: trackTimerAdjust [Show more] Type: Variable Category: Extra tracks Summary: Adjustment factor for the speed of the timers to allow for fine-tuning of time on a per-track basis Deep dive: The track data file format The extra tracks data file format The Oulton Park track
Context: See this variable in context in the source code References: No direct references to this variable in this source file

The value of the timerAdjust variable in the main game code is incremented on every iteration of the main driving loop. When it reaches the value in trackTimerAdjust, the timers add 18/100 of a second rather than 9/100 of a second. Increasing this value therefore speeds up the timers, allowing their speed to be adjusted on a per-track basis. Setting this value to 255 disables the timer adjustment.
