Yep. It's time to do this again - figure out how time works in a Final Fantasy online game!

From a FRAPS recording, a single Eorzea minute takes about 3 seconds. Or, in other words:

3 Earth seconds × x Eorzea seconds/Earth seconds = 60 Eorzea seconds

The units cancel out, leaving us with:

3 × x = 60

So x = 20.

Meaning that for every second that passes on Earth, 20 pass in Eorzea.

Cool! Now all we need to do is establish a starting known time on Earth with a corresponding known time on Eorzea.

If you want to see the raw data, knock yourself out.
