    so im trying to add a clock system to my game through which the player will get 1 life back after every 30 mins.

    for example like in candy cush. the person gets 1 life back after every 15mins. even if the game is not running on the phone.

    I dont know how to do it.

    SO a lil help. will be appreciated.

  • You maybe can host a php script on a website which simple gives you back the time (or use any free ntp service). Before closing the app a timestamp can be stored in the game/app and after opening the ntp server/php script is asked about the time and the difference can be calculated.

    That should work but'll need an internet connection.

  • I looked to see what the forum posting rules were and I couldn't seem to find anything about posting on a post that hasn't had anyone talk in a few months so I decided to post anyway, if it was wrong to do so please let me know.

    I think I found the forum post you are talking about located here: plugin-system-date-and-time_t63492?&hilit=clock&start=100. Is this method a way to stop the simple changing the clock way of cheating? After doing some searching I found a few more posts on the forum which talked about fetching the time from a website like time.gov and then having the game figure it out from there. Is that potentially a way to stop the changing the mobile time? Thank you in advance for your help.
