  • Hi!

    Very interesting template.

    I have a question. Is the timer working if I close the game?

    For example, let's say I am working on a tycoon and I have a house that needs 4 hours to be built. Can the user close the game and return to it after 4 hours and see the timer set to 0?

    Also, is it possible to show the timer in a different format? For example HH:MM:SS.

    Thank you!

  • Hello and sorry for the delay in replying, unfortunately my work life far exceeds my Construct 2 life! Thank you for the questions.

    At current the timer will not continue if you close it. Mostly because I do not know how to implement that! Maybe someone will be able to here.

    I have not added different formats for the timer, but it should be relatively easy to do with some event changes.

    I know that this timer is missing a lot of features that might be considered standard on many apps, but hopefully it still qualifies as a 'basic timer template', as I simply don't see many people using C2 for things that aren't games I thought I'd make a little something!

    Thank you for your feedback!

  • Hi!

    Yeah, it's just what I thought, it seems a quite difficult feature.

    Thank you in any case!
