    Combat Timer - Extension (v1.0.2)

    All,

    I've created a Combat Timer integrated into the Combat Tracker window. It's nothing fancy, just a clock that ticks while someone's turn is running. We used it in our game last night and it kept our players moving (rather than deliberating for 5 minutes on what they should do next).

    • The clock automatically resets when the turn is advanced. The game host can also manually reset the timer by double clicking on the timer clock itself.
    • The game host can start and pauses with the "Play" button on the left. If configured as a count-down timer, when the timer hits zero it will stop as well. Advancing the turn or manually resetting the timer will start it ticking again.
    • The game host can configure the timer as either a Count-Up or Count-Down timer type. Count-Down timers take an optional starting value (in seconds).
    • Players can see the timer as it ticks, but not start/stop/reset it.


    This extension has only been tested for PFRPG & 3.5 (and now 5E), however it should work on all CoreRPG rulests.

    CAVEAT: This extension *DOES NOT TICK* unless a client is connected. A warning message will be displayed if you try to start the timer with no connected clients, and this is why. To see the extension in action, have a friend connect in with this extension enabled (or start two Fantasy Grounds instances and connect to 127.0.0.1). Otherwise it's an underwhelming experience.

    Version 1.0.0
    • Added explicit handling for 5E window placement so it doesn't overlap the Menu button


    Version 1.0.1
    • An elapsing count-down timer now rings the bell (thanks Nickademus)
    • Extension verified to work for Fantasy Grounds 3.3.1 (PFRPG, 5E and Fate Core)


    Version 1.0.2
    • Added a Setting option controlling whether an elapsing count-down timer rings the bell
    • Opening the settings window no longer resets the timer
    • Changed turn notification hook such that directly moving the turn order flag will also reset the timer
    • Clients correctly receive timer enabled/disabled updates when the timer is toggled, but the timer is not otherwise running because the timer has reached zero


    Version 1.0.3
    • Added custom turn tracker placement for AD&D Core

    That's cool. It seems to work for 5E, although it gives the following error when I shut down FG

    Script Error: [string "scripts/combattimer.lua"]:265: attempt to index global 'Debug' (a userdata value)


    however, this is a really nifty extension, nice work

    Hey jab112 and welcome.
    You might notice that it doesnt cover the Menu button in the screen shot.
    Unfortunately different rulesets have some elements in different locations and the CT Menu button is one of them.
    What ruleset are you using?

    Used this a player in our Sunday evening game and liked it a lot, we are not a slow group, but it was cool to see it in action. Will be getting it for my 5E group.

    Well Done.

    Fixed. Updated extension is in the attachments and shouldn't overlap with the 5E menu button.
