Sorry for the delayed response.  I never got the email notification.

Global hotkeys has not yet been implemented, nor has editing hotkeys.  Development has slowed to a crawl.

OBS should be able to detect any open window, and I haven't heard anyone else complain about this.

The only hack I can think of for the background is have an image in OBS underneath Time Split Tracker that has a transparency.

Hopefully the rest of the features can be implemented soon, if Eric comes back, or if someone else wants to help with this version.

Here is the splits file:

It looks like BestSplitMinElapsedSec in the ini file is one of those options that has been implemented.  The reason why the best splits was not working is that the parameter is probably set to 1.0, which means that it ignores any best split that is less than 1 second to avoid accidentally setting the best split to an small value if the split is being skipped.  If you run the timer again and wait a bit longer between splits it will work as expected, or you can change the value.

You are also running the splits with 2 columns (plus the best splits and the current run columns).  Time Split Tracker supports multiple columns for comparison, but it saves the current run to the rightmost column in the text file.  This means that that you can compare splits to your run and to others' run(s), which is one of the reasons I made Time Split Tracker.  The format in the file for 1 column is "Best Splits" and "Best Run"(which can be renamed).  The "Current" column in Time Split Tracker is never saved, and so is not a column in the file.

To make it 1 column, remove the column 'Comparison' by deleting the header and the tab before it, which will make it be 1 column.   The rest of the data in that column will automatically be deleted when the split is loaded and saved.  If you have saved data, then you will have to remove the blank column in the middle to put the data in the one column.  If you want to use 2 columns, then swap the column for "Best Run" and "Comparison" so that it saves to "Best Run".

Most of the items in the configuration file have not been implemented on the Mac version.  I thought that the best split saving would be one that would have be implemented.  However, I have no way of checking this out, so I would need someone else to check, although nobody else has mentioned this.

I wonder if your splits file is set up correctly.  Can you verify that there are 2 time columns for each split, the first for best splits and the second for the best run?

There are template files in the windows version download: https://dunnius.itch.io/time-split-tracker-windows

Hopefully the next mac version update will include the template files.

It is not public.  I suppose if Eric is not able to work on this that much, I guess we could add another person and team up on it.

You are correct that Current Splits compares against the PB, and Best Splits are the sum of the best splits.

Always showing the last split has not yet been implemented.

Sorry about the delay.  I don't get notifications of new topics so I have to remember to check manually.

More than likely there is not a second line after the final split.  Each split requires 2 lines, the second is used for split notes.  Adding a line at the end should fix this.

Global hotkeys have not yet been implemented.

Is the location where you are saving the file one that you have permissions to write?  It is usually written to a location within your user folder.

Do you mean how to create and load a split file, or how to operate it once a split is loaded?

To add an image for a split, enter the filename (and also the path if it is in a different folder) on the split's second line in the first column position, at the start of the line.  You can see examples of the image by looking at the example files found in the link in this thread: https://itch.io/t/329672/sample-files-and-manual-update


for example with a split line pair: (\t is a tab, which I show because this forum eats the tabs when copied)

split name\t0.00\t0.0

You can either change the settings in the ini file or you can right click to bring up contextual menus for what you click on.  You can click on the background to set the maximum height/width of the window as well as other spacing.  You can click on the attempts area, the timer, the difference timer under it, any of the column or row headers, or any of the data to change the text font, size, and color, as well as modifying the split file without having to use a text editor.

For hotkeys, you have to modify the ini file then start Time Split Tracker.

The mac developer has been away for a long time so nothing has been added recently.  A workaround is to run WINE to use the windows version of Time Split Tracker, which I maintain, and so it has many more features, including being able to reassign the keys as well as being able to edit split files.

Global hotkeys have not yet been implemented.

I created a text file explaining how to edit a split file in a spreadsheet program as well as the split file format:

https://itch.io/t/369258/tst-video?before=3#post-645316

Also in the thread, Randomstuff created a video.

Here is an image that explains how to open a split file in a spreadsheet and save it back to a split file.  The third image shows how a split file looks when everything is lined up.  The first image is the file as it would be seen in a text file.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/wgkivme4wsn431e/TST%20Spreadsheet%20Guide.png?dl=0

If a text editor has an option for a huge tab stop value, that would also make things line up.   Another way when creating a split file is to use small placeholder split names and split file title when making the columns, then put the names in afterwards.

The format of the file is explained in the manual, which can be found here: https://itch.io/t/329672/sample-files-and-manual-update


The first column is the title, and in the following lines, the name of the splits.  In the column names line, this is the display name for the split file.

The second column is the best splits.  This stores as an elapsed time, not run time, the fastest elapsed time for the split.  Displaying this column as run time will show the accumulated times and will show as the final split what the optimal run time should be.

The remainder of the columns except the last are for comparison splits, used to compare the current run against multiple sets of splits.

The last column is the best run.  This is the splits that will be replaced when saved.

The second line for each split has additional info for the split.  (Be sure to make two lines for each split)

The first column is the split's image.

The remainder of the columns are notes for that split for that column's run.  So the best splits can have a note, the best run can have a separate note, and any of the comparison run can have its own note as well.


The first line's first column is the attempt counter.

The second column is the timer offset.

The third column is the background image file.


Let me know if anything else needs to be explained or clarified.

I created a file called "Sample 1 No Splits.txt" and put that in the zip file that has the manual and other sample spit files.  This new file is likely useful for others as well.  The zip file is in this thread: https://itch.io/t/329672/sample-files-and-manual-update

Have you loaded one of the split files?  There are sample files you can use.

Do you mean that you want to run the timer without any splits?  I can create a file for that if that is what you want.

Make a list of the splits you want and I will make a file for you.

Here is the splits file:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/71appztjhazg6r0/Super%20Meat%20Boy.txt?dl=0

Is the split file you made not working?  While you can edit the split file as a spreadsheet, you need to export/save it as a tab delimited file.  If you can't figure it out and want to tell me what splits you want, I can make the file for you.

As for saving splits, yes you would have to switch over to Time Split Tracker to hit the space bar and then switch back, or use a separate computer.   Global hotkeys has not been implemented.

Isn't it the space key?  I don't have a mac, so I can't run that version, but it should have the same default key.  Also make sure that you have opened a split file first.

Here is the splits file:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/r9pg39iysow7wz6/Super%20Mario%20Odyssey.txt?dl=0

Creating and modifying a splits file has not yet been enabled within the Mac version.  You can either run the Windows version through WINE or create the files through a text or spreadsheet editor.   If you want to tell me what splits you want, I can create the file for you.

I also made an update the files and manual to help make this more clear.  Thread here:
https://itch.io/t/329672/sample-files-and-manual-update#post-591346

I updated the sample files and the manual.  It should be a bit more clear what the columns mean, and how the files should be set up.  Here is a link to the files until these are added to the next update.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/hs18mp3yoxoe41z/Sample%20Files%20and%20Manual%2019-01-05.zip?dl=0

This section in the manual for the file format was modified to explain the columns better:

The first column is the title, and in the following lines, the name of the splits.
The second column is the best splits.  This stores as an elapsed time, not run time, the fastest elapsed time for the split.  Displaying this column as run time will show the accumulated times and will show as the final split what the optimal run time should be.
The remainder of the columns except the last are for comparison splits, used to compare the current run against multiple sets of splits.
The last column is the best run.  This is the splits that will be replaced when saved.

You need to have a column between the split name and the Best Run (you can rename this columns), which is Best Splits, which is the time (stored as duration) for that split.  This column adds up each duration in the column and shows a guess for the optimal best run.

I see that the file that you based this on is incorrect for some reason.  I don't know how that slipped by for all this time.  I will update this for the Windows/WINE version, and have Time Split Tracker add the best splits column automatically if there is only one column, and pass them along to Eric whenever he comes back.

There are settings in the ini file that control the hotkeys, but I don't know if those settings have been integrated into the Mac version yet.
