WPMs Results for VGA are Underestimated

The current version of FitalyLetris for the Pocket PC was written before the new VGA systems and has not been updated. It appears to have a systematic error in the way it computes WPMs.

The times are correct and to compute the WPMs, you can use the formula:


or simply,

For the three VGA entries, the reported results are under the computed (exact) value:

Jenneth 75.26 should be: 77.19 wpm
Walter 41.01 should be: 42.06 wpm
Russell 27.41 should be: 28.11 wpm

Most likely, the VGA version must be using a different version of the Mathematical libraries... While we are looking into producing a version that handles VGA correctly, you can continue to use it and we will adjust the results manually.
