    I'll start with the formula.. It was posted in a FoF ages ago though I don't recall which one...

    Tics = 1/4 of a second
    All Units in this formula use Tics.

    Base Swing = Swing delay in Seconds x 4 (Example 4 sec swing delay = 20 Tics)

    0-29 Stam -0 Tic
    30-59 Stam -1 Tic
    60-89 Stam -2 Tics
    90-119 Stam -3 Tics
    120-149 Stam -4 Tics
    150-179 stam -5 Tics
    180+ Stam -6 Tics

    Final Swing = ( Base Swing - Stam Tics ) x ( 100 / 100 + SSI)

    MY QUESTION is How is the red portion rounded or truncated ? Iknow someone will quote example given in the FoF but was that just true for that example or how does the Rounding / Truncating work?

    150 STAM
    35 % SSI
    Composite Bow

    Base swing = 4 Sec = 16 Tics
    Stam Tics = 5

    Final Swing = [Base Swing (16) - Stam Tics (5) ] x [ 100 / 135 ]

    Final Swing = 11 x 0.740740 = 8.14 tics. Does a Composite with these numbers swing at 8 Tics or 9? I'm pretty sure it gets rounded down from ANY decimal to the whole number but not positive..

    Anyone know for sure ?
