Unsure of everything

Hello,

I just downloaded TimeSplit tracker because I want to speedrun Super Meat Boy. For the split file, I copy-pasted a split file you made for someone else, changed the sections names and copy-pasted into an excel file since you mentioned spreadsheets work. I did command-o to go fetch this spreadsheet once I opened timesplit. However, now I have no idea what to do, or what the end result is even supposed to look like. Do all the times and names from the split file appear on the window with "attempts, session" and the time? And to save the splits, do I have to manually leave the game and press spacebar to enter my time? I'm new to speedrunning, new to using programs, not very tech-savvy... I'm lost. Any help?

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.

Alright, thank you for the speedy reply! If you don't mind, it would be helpful if you could make the split file. If I haven't yet done any attempts, the times are all 0:00:00, right?

I'm speedrunning super meat boy. Here are the checkpoints:


Light forest: 0:00:00

Light hospital: 0:00:00

Light factory: 0:00:00

Light hell: 0:00:00

Light rapture: 0:00:00

Light end: 0:00:00

Dark forest: 0:00:00

Dark hospital: 0:00:00

Dark factory: 0:00:00

Dark hell: 0:00:00

Dark rapture: 0:00:00

Dark end: 0:00:00

Light cotton alley: 0:00:00

Dark cotton alley: 0:00:00

Here is the splits file:

Thank you very much! However, there is still a little problem. While the splits file works great, only half the checkpoints seem to appear on the timesplit tracker window. For example, the splits go light forest, light hospital, light factory, light hell, light rapture, but the only ones that show up are light forest, light factory, light rapture, skipping every second one. How can I fix this?

Never mind, I got it fixed! Thank you for everything:)
