Regen Countdown Timer Improved


Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin

The Regen countdown timer has been improved so it attempts to correct the time with the server.

Every minute that it counts down it does some math to readjust so that a slow/fast PC will not made the timer go massively slower or faster. This means that every minute it becomes "correct" again. The math is does is a soft reload, which means it does not attempt to work out if anything big has changed such as items that affect the regen. Previously it did not do this so sitting in once place for a long period of time caused it to go completely out of balance.

If you move around or load any pages it will trigger a hard reload and it will work out the actual time and adjust to new regen times. This will then be picked up next time the timer rechecks the server by doing a soft reload and update your regen timer if it has increased/decreased.

This will improve how the timer works so it should be more accurate, but the advice for if you want to be sure the countdown is correct for crucially timed events is to reload the page yourself.

Note: The old flash file may be cached. The older timer will not display any of the new features which means until you have loaded the new one it may not display. You can tell if you have the new or older timer by checking the display. When there is less than 10 seconds on the seconds part of the timer the new one will display a leading one. Wheras the old one did not. See below for an example

old timer showing 1 minute 9 seconds: 1:9
new timer showing 1 minute 9 seconds 1:09

To get the new one you can clear you cache and it should load the new one.
