Too bad. I was already thinking of a solution to just display some bogus text or nothing as ms during the time the stopwatch is running, and only show them when the stopwatch was stopped by the user, in effect canceling out the potential performance impact issue. :???:

That is something I can not figure out how to do. Since the submenu is not another skin.

But I wouldn't hijack this thread for this. :rolmfao:

Ah, ok. It would have been easy if it was. :confused:

Have you looked at this Millisecond timer: T-Minus by killall-q :)

This looks like almost what I need as a starting point - thanks. :rosegift: Will take a closer look at it later on, but it looks like a very good candidate to explore. :thumbup:

Inspired by sl23, I made my own Timerclock.

But I wouldn't release it formally since it is more or less modified sl23 timer.

Sorry that was faulty.
Here is the new one:
Timerlarm_v1.0.0.rmskin
:rolmfao: :rolmfao: I won't release it, but here it is!! :rolmfao:

Seriously though, You guys have created this, not me. If it weren't for the help I got through this thread, it wouldn't have happened. The basic stuff I can do, but that's really my limit! :oops: No need to credit me either for that same reason. I'm just glad it inspired you, THAT is the only reason I release skin packages after all. :D I try to do different things that may give others ideas.

For me a formal release means on deviantart, github, forum and discord.

You got him on that one. :lol: It looks very nice though, just like your version.

I wasn't keen on that first design, I much prefer how it is now :)
