    There is no time type for the displayed texts. You can only include the integer or string value of an existing value. You could write the time into a value though. The string section of a value would be better than the integer section as you would be able to include formatting.

    What is this timer for?

    os.date("%X") -- return players os time in 24 hour format (hh:mm:ss)

    Hi Lee, it's your timer script that not works grin. When I quit the option menu, the timer resets to 0 every time.

    Ah that old chestnut again eh! grin

    I wrote that script ages ago. Not sure why it should be resetting itself though, unless you are reinitializing the script by calling it each time you load the menu scene.
