Game time count down not local time

Every count down timer i try this is what happens. I asked 2 different players that live in different time zones to copy and paste the count down time from the timer i have put into my owner page.

There is a 1 hour time difference between both players time zones.

At the same time in the live chatbox they both copy and pasted the time remaining. The time / date of game reset in the options of the game say Oct 1 at 6:00pm

So i set the time on the counter for oct 1 at 6:00pm

here is what they both got for the count down.

Player from guatimala
Round 0 ends in: 09 Days, 13 Hours, 19 Minutes, 28 Seconds.

Player from west canada
Round 0 ends in: 09Days, 14 Hours, 18 Minutes, 13 Seconds.

the one player in guatimala is 1 hour ahead so the from the player in canada because ALL of the counters out there display local time only,

The ONLY way for us to show the same count down for every player from different time zones is done with in the server. Us as game owners will never be able to have a game server real time count down because we do not have FTP access.

Mafia Creator staff is the only one that can get this count down for us to work because we are not allowed to do any hard codes in the core.


Mafia Creator Staff can you please look into this and help us all out this would be such a great improvement to the game.

--------------------

Why should the counter say the round is ending an hour ahead for the guy in guatimala and an hour later for the guy in west canada?? THis makes no sense, it should all be based off the game server time.

According to the timers we can but on our self that means the guy in canada has to wait 1 hour longer b4 starting to play the round but gets to play an extra hour after the time is up for the guy in guatimala?

Did you define a timezone? No. So the computer of your players doesn't know which timezone you mean and counts down to 6:00 pm local time.

Because you don't define any timezone when configuring your counter (or the used script doesn't support it). I'm pretty sure there are javascripts out there that DO support timezones.

i have a script in java to do it but requiers me to upload the .js

Additional message:
never mind i found a new one finally after weeks of looking, and i think it works. now i just have to wait for a couple ppl from different time zone to test it for me

Additional message:
OK Everyone that wanted a working count down timer that works from the game server time zone. after weeks of search and many different timers/clocks of trying. I have finally found one that supports what we are looking for.

I just had 2 members of my game in different time zones tell me the time count and they both had the same so this one works 100%

here is the link http://www.clocklink.com/gallery.php?category=COUNT
