Game Time doesn't match real time

AOE 2 DE
Game time in statistics is incorrect.
I started timing my age and total game time with my own time. The hours & minutes shown in post game statistics is always ahead by ~30 minutes.
Example - I finished a game in 57 minutes but post game statistics game time ~ 1hr 30 min.
Is this a bug or is there a purpose to not showing actual minutes and hour.

Apart from the fact that this is the wrong forum, my first question would be what game speed you have set? Because if you play at twice the speed of the game, the ingame time will be twice as fast.

Many greetings.

As @nostrodomosFU said, higher speeds than 1.0 will cause game time to be inaccurate compared to the “real” time.

1.7 speed means each in-game second is 1.7 faster than real time
Same goes for 1.5 and 2.0
Just 1.0 is the way to play exactly by time

Game speed “Normal” other options are Slow, Casual or Fast.
From the posts I have read the game “clock” is measured unit speed?

Your humble servant :wink:

Slow is x1.0 speed
Casual is x1.5 speed
Normal is x1.7 speed
Fast is x2.0 speed

So unless you are playing on slow, the game clock will be faster than real time because, well, the game is running faster.

Question how is the creation time calculated, with the slow speed?

all creation times are relative to the in-game timer.

A villager takes 25 in-game seconds to create whether you are on fast or slow speed, but 25 in-game seconds is equivalent to 12.5 real-world seconds if you’re playing on fast.

I think the game timer has to remain as is, it’s good to be able to compare up times etc between games no matter what speed they were played on.
