Pause UTime timer for specific players
« on: July 24, 2018, 06:44:58 AM »
Hiya! So i'm making a afk detection script that basicly tells the whole server that this user is now afk etc.
However, I would love to pause the utime counter for the afk player so they wont idle just to get more playtime on my server.
Is this possible in any way? Thanks!

No pause.
UTime, at least Megiddo's original version, and I presume every other "improved" one made after, uses oldtime + playerleft system time - playerjoined system time.

There is no timer other than the computer clock.

(The currently only way) I imagine you could prevent idlers from being counted would be similiar to what UTime does now.
Keep a running cumulative variable of a players afk time during the session.
Then actually modify the sh_utime file function, likely the GetUTimeTotalTime to subtract totalidle of the player.
oldtime + playerleft system time - playerjoined system time - session_afk
