I play an MMORPG that uses an in-game time system similar to normal "Earth" time. I'm trying to create a program that can notify me when it's a certain time in the game, so I know that I need to log in. I've been looking all over EE as well as other VB code websites, and can't seem to locate a code that will help me.
An example of the time system can be viewed at http://www.pyogenes.com/ffxi/timer/v2.html
. All I need is the Information from the General Info box.
I need the userform to have three clocks. One in CST, One in GMT, and One in the game time. I honestly don't even know where to begin with getting the game time on the form. I need it to be constantly running, even when I'm not running the program, similar to the system clock, so that the time is always correct. There may be a way to base it off of the system clock, but I'm not sure.
The time system is set up as follows:
There are 60 minutes in a day, 8 days in a week, 30 days in a month, 12 months in a year.
1 game second = .04 Real Seconds (1/25th of a second)
1 minute = 2.4 seconds
1 hour = 2 minutes 24 seconds
1 day = 57 minutes 36 seconds
1 Calendar month = 28 hours 48 minutes
1 Lunar month = 30 hours 43 minutes 12 seconds
My intent is to be able to base other functions off of both the in-game time, and the actual real life time, but I can't even begin working on the rest of it until I figure out how to get the time to work.
Thanks for your help.
