The timing options allows me to set it from -20 to +20 at intervals of 1.

-20, -19, -18...5,6,7,8 Ect.

What does this option change? I'm moving it around between songs to try and figure it out but I cannot discern a definite noticeable difference that I can be positive isn't my mind tripping myself out.

Note: this option is not to be confused with the with the Arrow Speed Option located under INDIVIDUAL OPTIONS. I'm talking about the Timing Option located under GRAPHIC.

It probably has to do with the sync between the audio and video, +/- 20 ms or something. – Matthew Read Jun 23 '12 at 19:56
@MatthewRead that rings of truth, can you confirm somehow? – Ender Jun 23 '12 at 20:12

This should be adjustments for the time between arrows & the music. This compensates for the lag between the mat & the video.

This isn't the speed that the arrows move, just the timing of them being displayed.

Search for "timing" in this Gamefaqs page.
