Time laps rewards?

Hi gang,

I'm working on a game where your building a item, product or service that takes time...

What I want to do is have the progress be so slow that if the user starts the process it will literally take the passage of 30 min to complete. Now... I know how to setup a timer in the app but it only runs if the app is running. How do I access an outside clock or system time on start of layout so I can see how much time has passed?

Thanks.

OK, PLUGIN IS INSTALLED.... and I have a working example of a .capx that will get elapsed time and set a progress bar for total time passed.

"even if the app was closed and the user was not playing the game"


This is great for creating time earned rewards in your games.
"some games have a (come back tomorrow for a bonus)"

This is how you would do this...
