‘The game clock skipping beats’ means that the scoreboard during the last second of the game doesn’t show all tenths of a second (0.9…0.8…0.7…0.6 etc) but instead jumps, for example, directly from 1.0 to 0.6 and then to zero.
If this happens, it is because the computer running the scores app is an underpowered one, or alternatively there are other applications running background consuming the computer CPU (Central Processing Unit). This result in the display screen not being updated within the 100 milliseconds as it should.
This problem cannot be solved in any other way than by
- upgrading the computer
- cleaning the browser and the computer from all unnecessary applications, plug-ins and old browsing data
Do note that even if the displayed clock is skipping beats, the actual game clock isn’t affected. The last second still lasts one second, despite the clock showing only some of the tenths-of-seconds.
