I found humor in TWGS

While waiting for a game timer to open a game to play ...

Quote:
This game will open in 2 hours and 60 minutes.

0~59 = a count of 60 , therefore 60 = count of 61 or + 1 hour 0 mins.

Hard to believe this was not caught by the programer.

Maybe it rounds the minutes but not the hours, and it was actually 2 hours, 59 minutes, 30+ seconds.

I was watching and updating very quickly , no seconds are reported.

But the point I'm sharing is that 60 mins to 0 minutes is 61 minutes.
Therefore it should be 59 to 0 equaling 60 minutes.

That is all.

The difference between 0 (zero) base, and 1 (one) base Logic…

Code:
SetVar $TimeRemaining 180
SetVar $Hours 0
SerVar $Mins 0

SetVar $Temp $TimeRemaining

While ($Temp > 60)
  Add $Hours 1
  Subtract $Temp 60
End
SetVar $Mins $Temp

Echo "*Time Remaining: "&$Hours&" Hours, "&$Mins&" Minutes.*"

My point is that the "60" might just be a display bug, not a value that the minutes counter can ever actually have. Seconds aren't displayed, but we don't know if they're rounded or just dropped. 59 minutes 30+ seconds might be displayed as 60 minutes, which looks weird when there's also an hours figure.

Yes, it's just a display bug, but it could be quite annoying if you are parsing that with a script.

That actually doesn't make any sense. If the game opens now, then you should be able to enter... lol...

Colonel Sandurz: Try here. Stop.
Dark Helmet: What the hell am I looking at? When does this happen in the movie?
Colonel Sandurz: Now. You're looking at now, sir. Everything that happens now, is happening now.
Dark Helmet: What happened to then?
Colonel Sandurz: We passed then.
Dark Helmet: When?
Colonel Sandurz: Just now. We're at now now.
Dark Helmet: Go back to then.
Colonel Sandurz: When?
Dark Helmet: Now.
Colonel Sandurz: Now?
Dark Helmet: Now.
Colonel Sandurz: I can't.
Dark Helmet: Why?
Colonel Sandurz: We missed it.
Dark Helmet: When?
Colonel Sandurz: Just now.
Dark Helmet: When will then be now?
Colonel Sandurz: Soon.
Dark Helmet: How soon?

If my hunch is right, it would say "now" for 30 seconds.
