Level timer is an optional timer that measures the time someone is playing a level, introduced in 1.5.0. This timer is divided in hours, minutes, and seconds and is paused when the game is paused but not during scenes where the player is briefly unmovable, like screen transitions or encounters with bosses. Once the level has started, the level timer cannot be reset by any means except for quitting the level and then replaying it.
It can be enabled or disabled on the "Options" menu.
Potential Application of Level Timer
Although the addition of a Level Timer doesn't have any effect on Mega Man Maker itself, it can be used by others outside Mega Man Maker in various creative ways, such as, but not limited to:
- Determining winner in level races with multiple people.
- Proof of time in level speedrunning attempts.
- Self-imposed timed level challenges.
