Thanks for the help! Just need to figure out milliseconds and I'd be solid!

@silkc2 - Here's an example with milliseconds(and hundredths of a second). This example works differently from Ugotsta's, but I've tried to comment it well to illustrate what's going on.

Thanks for that.. the thing is I wanted to make it simpler so I'm using dt assigned per tick to a var called Seconds - I'm so close:

round(Seconds*10)/10

Gives 1.2, 1.2, 1.3 etc (I don't care about third digit so much)
But it breaks for whole numbers ; I want it to show 2.0 and instead it shows 2, which is really messy on a timer.

This is pretty cool, but how can I get it to display minutes when 60 seconds has passed?
