It may also have to do with how timing in ZZT is staggered. This was done so that all things of the same cycle don't have to be processed at the same time which helped to alleviate the pressure on the processor on older machines.

You increase a base timer value by 1 every tick. I think the formula for determining whether or not a stat element will be processed is this:

(ObjectNumber + MainTickValue) % Cycle

If 0, the object will be processed. Due to the staggered setup, sometimes object procs will be skipped completely or done more rapidly depending on how MainTickValue changes. I think it is still modified in ZZT regardless if the game is paused, it might be on an interrupt timer.

The results I've gotten though were with nothing on the board with stats other than the player, a single duplicator, and an object for a timer. Only one duplicator on screen at a time.

I would expect consistency. At first I figured cycle 1 was going to end up with 15 cycles * rate + 1 which works well for the first half of possible rates, but then you get the 86, 91, 98, 113 pattern at the end.

Honestly, I would have said "no one uses ____" for most of the more obscure and archaic oddities, but lately I've learned not to put anything past premchai.

Or that the object number is significant. Perhaps try to run the test again after having dumped a bunch of other objects on the board and then the duplicators, with and without erasing the other objects again first?
