On a different topic, really ****** me off people have rated my app down on the market place without saying why. Went from 5 stars to 3 with no reason behind it
Yeah, I saw that and gave it a 5 star rating which hasn't kicked in yet. Works exactly as promised and it looks good, I don't know what else you can ask from an app. I suspect the other forums that you mentioned before have something to do with it.
Actually, i take the time on the local machine, convert it to JP time, and then use fhe time difference to calculate the game time from the game's epoch. If you want to see it working, download the gadget and rename the extension from .gadget to .zip. You should be able to see the files, it's all done in JS and HTML. I'm a bit more reluctant to send the code for the LCD clock, but I can send you something over pm. Really the genius behind it was khorbin, he helped me figure it out by sharing what he did for his android app, I can't take all of the credit.
Nah, the files already included should be just fine - I didn't know you could even use JS/HTML for desktop gadgets. I figured Microsoft would have their own API for that and force you to use VBS. I really appreciate the help, I need to get a handle on what's good programming practice and nothing I've been reading does that very well. So far I've been using C/C++, so I should be pretty comfortable with what you've got.
For kicks, I changed my computer's clock and ended up back a few years in Eorzea time. I doubt it's a huge issue, since the only people changing their clocks are probably trying to cheat on their software licenses, but I figured I might as well put it out there. Thanks again for the info, it'll help me out a lot.
