File Type 2LiveSplit Auto Splitter Script
.ASL File Association 2
An ASL file is an auto splitter script created for use with LiveSplit, a timer program used by video game speedrunners. It contains code written in the Auto Splitting Language that tells LiveSplit when to reset or start a new game timer. ASL files allow speedrunners to automatically adjust their timer in the middle of a speedrun, so they don't have to waste time and clicks adjusting the timer themselves.
LiveSplit allows gamers to time speedruns using splits, which are sub-timers for certain sections or levels of a game. Gamers can create and manually trigger their own splits, or they can use auto splitters to automatically trigger splits when they reach a certain level or location or perform a certain in-game action. Many auto splitters are scripts written in LiveSplit's Auto Splitting Language, which are saved as ASL files.
Many pre-existing ASL scripts are packaged with LiveSplit, to allow speedrunners to add auto splits to speedruns of popular games. LiveSplit users can also create their own ASL scripts and load them into LiveSplit manually, using the program's Layout Editor.

- Right-click on the LiveSplit window and select . The Layout Editor appears.
- Select the button. Then, select .
- Double-click the Scriptable Auto Splitter entry that appears in the Layout Editor. Then, specify the path at which your ASL file is stored.
