How do I Determine how many days since last launch ?

  • is there a way to detect how many hours [actually I just want to know how many days] since the last time the game was opened ?

  • I think you can obtain system date/time through a plugin or simple expressions (i'm not sure about this last).

    First, set the date and time in a persistent data like local storage everytime the app's closed. Then when the app is opened again, calculate the hours/days difference between current and stored time.

    Sorry about my english D:

  • You want this on a global basis or a per-user basis?

  • Per user.

    The next question is, how to retrieve the date time in an easy to calculate way that allows me to easily calculate how many 24hours have passed since last launch ?

    You can use Rex's date plugin: c2rexplugins.weebly.com/rex_date.html

    I haven't tested it yet but it seems very good and easy ^^

  • The minute I use it it reports an error, I wrote in his discussion thread, hope to hear from him soon.

    Do you care if your date and time can be manipulated by users? And do you need to translate these times between users or do you only care that a given user can see his own time played/last time the client was updated?

  • The last one !
