It was frame counted to 32 seconds.

This is the same video in my Twin Galaxies submission

Did the people who frame counted it give any notes about how they determined that?

The reason I ask is, when you take control of your character, it looks like the time starts at that exact moment.  ---And, I see it changes to 33 seconds before making it to the castle and the screen flashes and the timer stops.

Maybe you lose control when entering the final screen?  I just don't understand.

According to the frame count:
Timer Start = 02:52.400 (one frame before the first block movement):

Timer Stop = 03:25.266 (the frame where the castle walls change color):

Total Elapsed Time = 03:25.266 - 02:52.400 = 32.866 = 32.0 seconds

Now that I think about it, would it be better to resubmit this as 32.866?

It looks like 0:33.07 in the video.  The timer starts at 0:00.0 at the exact moment you take control. 

That's what I'm wondering about.  Why not 33.07?

I know it's not much of a difference but your video timer seems to work very well & it looked accurate.  I was wondering if you knew of a reason for this discrepancy?  And why would frame-counting be more accurate than your real-time clock timer?

See what I mean?  It looks like your evidence is saying 33.07

Frame by frame analysis gives the exact timing.  I think I'll resubmit as 33.07 since that's what my timer says despite it actually being a 32.86
