    20:29.438 – 19:38.917 = 50.521 seconds (rounded to 50.0)

    Anyway, in answer to the above question regarding rounding, if absolutely needed for some reason, (assuming shortest time is best) always round up.

    Rounding up is valid, as the performance was definitely achieved within the rounded-up time. Rounding down may create an achieved time that was not actually achieved in reality.
    Lots of 1sts to be surpassed: what are you waiting for? Play the game, submit the score...

    Seems like on every variation of Adventure, rounding down seems to have been the always accepted norm, tho I could be wrong.
