    Hi, I would like to display the current time (in real time) on the screen. I am sure this is possible, but I have tried a few things and can't figure out how. If anyone happens to know how I can achieve this I would be very glad for your help.

    Thanks in advance,
    Shiny

      Is there a function that checks the system time?

      If not you could always build a clock with variables

        There is such a function yes, but when I use it, it only displays the time at which the script was initialized. I thought about variables to be honest, not sure how to script it that the hour minute and AM/PM is set to a variable (every second, so its real time)

          You'll probably want ToDo a refresh every 20 frames I think it is... To update the seconds minutes and hours at the right time... You may get a delay but change the frames used that's all I can figure... I've tried removing real time and adding fake time, more convenient I think... So I can't really elaberate more... But that's what I figure

            I think it depends on the FPS you are running it at, Refresh it every 30 frames for 30 FPS, that way it'll go up by a second each time and won't be out of sync too much

              That's what I meant... I'm using my phone and it doesn't like outrun things like FPS, HIV, OMG... Etc... It changes them to something a little less important! But hopefully they got the Jody

              Edit...
              Outrun = putting
              Jody = jist

              See what I mean!
