# How the Time-Bonus is Calculated

#21

So, for completionisms sake. (math and formulas ahead)

Lets call the score you get if you sum up all the 20,000 pointers (No Bodies found, etc), and then subtract the non-target-kill penalty “S0”. When Silent Assassin is achieved, S0 = 100,000.
Furthermore, lets call the total score “S”. (this is what the leaderboards are based on)

Then:

S = S0 x f( t ),

where f( t ) is the bonus factor function, defined as:

f( t ) = 2.1 - (0.004/3) x t, when t < 5 minutes
f( t ) = 1.75 - (0.0005/3) x t, when 5 minutes < t < 15 minutes
f( t ) = 4.9/3 - (0.001/27) x t when t > 15 minutes.

(to calculate only the bonus, simply subtract 1 from f( t ). )

The graph shows the calculated bonus based on an S0 of 100,000. (Silent Assassin)
Note that in this graph, the calculated bonus compared to the actual bonus is so close that you can’t even see the former underneath the latter in the graph.

As far as I can tell this works within expected errors based on the fact that the score is clearly based on fractions of seconds, but only shows whole seconds in the leaderboards.

There. This is my nerdiest thread on these forums yet I think. And that’s saying a lot.

I didn’t realise that. I assumed you have approximated it at those specific time points.

If your insights are correct, and testing a few times they look good, then here is a table of times and scores for a perfect SA rating up to 10 minutes:

Just to clarify, this is a previously posted graph, but with the data points explicitly shown.

I got the points up to around 7 mins from leaderboards, which is why theres so many of them (easy to do). Then I did my own 10, 15, ,20, 25, 30, 60 and 150 min runs. (the later two are a bit longer, because I just let the game run and just checked in after a while without doing anything exact, but they’re in the ballpark of 60 and 150 mins).
The graph contains a calculated bonus as well, but it’s such a good fit that it isn’t visible under the data point line. .

#24

I will always have more points then you huehue

#25

See the cyclist. Try again.

#26

This thread is giving me a Nerdgasm. I love in depth analysis of a single in game screen backed up with cold hard mathematical application. Only in a video game forum. I love it

#27

Well my guess is that most of us here are not the ones who were in the school’s sport team.

#28

I’m honestly impressed with the math in this thread lol. I’m taking a math class now and seeing similar concepts…never thought I’d see a function being used in conjunction with hitman data.

#29

Well unless you count debating as a sport lol

#30

Well, since this has been referenced in another thread I feel the need to mention that I’ve noticed that missing objectives effects the score differently in contracts. That is, if you don’t use the preferred kill / disguise comboi it seems like you get a bigger score deduction than this formula states. I haven’t really sat down to ponder exactly what the difference is though, just something I noticed.

Other than that it all still seems to hold up.

#31

That can only happen in contracts. In main missions you’ll always complete the objectives.

But yes, if you don’t complete the objectives your time bonus will drop

#32

Oh yes, it will drop, but I am saying it doesnt follow the standard drop that you’d get for missing, say, “No bodies found” or somesuch. It seems to be a larger drop than that (if I remember correctly)

#33

Yes you get a very big penalty if you don’t complete the objectives compared to others like NTK, Spotted…

Just did some testing. Not completing objectives alone penalizes you almost as much as three parameters combined (spotted, noticed kill, bodies found).
