Daylight saving time just happened a couple of hours ago, now all of the in-game event timers are off by an hour. Nothing originally scheduled for 6AM EST actually happened at that time (Shangra, etc). I can manually account for this in my head because I knew it happened, but it’s going to be confusing for a ton of players and should therefore be the highest priority of immediate fixes.
This is a separate issue from the other event alarms bug thread, as DST just happened.
Server time in top left has been adjusted properly it shows as 4:32 PDT for west coast currently (which is correct) but the timers are all wrong now, it showed the race event starting 32 minutes ago (which would have been an even hour/correct) but it didin’t start.
At this point, if you change your system time to manually and turn off DST auto it will give you the timers correctly but we shouldn’t be adjusting the OS timers for this… This issue was raised with OCE players days ago and no one cared, we actually in advance warned about this.
Yup, there’s been so many threads from OCE players about timers being off and we got ignored. I had to adjust the OS system to time get around it. The timer shouldn’t be relying on the system clock at all.
I’d like to point out that my timers are still totally fine. I live in a place that doesn’t do DST and everything is still accurate. That’s not to say that this issue isn’t something that needs to be fixed, but I’d like to put it out there so that when a patch for this gets pushed hopefully it won’t break my timers.
Hey, in all seriousness - why wasn’t this escalated LAST WEEK when it was being reported by the AU/NZ community? The dev team could possibly already have had it fixed before this issue affected more people.
It feels like it was ignored because we’re not in the big US or EU landmass.
The USA, the east has the same as Daylight Savings which make the timing of the event all go one hour behind. Players running around telling how bad the game should change on time do not even feel the player base is too big in case let players feel bad EXP of this game. To Quit!
They just need to adjust the event timers to DST since this game is from KR that was not calculated. I guess they are waiting for a patch from Smilegate, I don’t think AGS can change that code, but it should be a priority to fix it so we don’t have to change our OS.
