[partly solved] How do I do some kind of a timestamp/news

  • Hi,

    I'm not sure how to do this (a reason could be that I'm not an expert in Arrays). I also searched in the forum, but I didn't found anything similar. Maybe somebody can give me a hint.

    1. Step

    My program makes every specific time period a calculation and gives a result.

    These results should be saved in an array with a timestamp. That means take the results, add a new y-line in array, put the result in and save it with the game-time. (e.g. time: 123 - result1: 12 - result2: 343 - result3: 1253)

    2. Step

    The results won't be shown everytime when the calculation is made.

    There is an icon which opens a pop up and shows the first array result. The player confirms and the next will be shown, until there is no one. The results/news which the player confirmed will be deleted, so it won't show again.

    I'll try to do this, but maybe somebody has an idea.

    many thx

  • Are you asking how to do all this or just the time stamp ? If it's just the timestamp then look at wallclocktime or there is a plugin that makes handling time easier (see plugin section)

  • the timestamp is not really the problem. it's the array which gives me headache.

    insert it, show it and delete it... sounds easy, but somewhere I make a mistake.

    I will retry it and if it works I will post it

  • ok, I have a small problem:

    When I first time add a new line, 2 were added: 0 - 0 - 0 and e.g. 2-12-13. After that it works just fine and add every time just one line.

    So i tried to set the size (set size weight 3, height 1, deep 0), but then it enters 0-0-0.

    Has anybody experience with my problem?
