Feature Request: Total Time Running

Postby alexlaw » Tue Jul 17, 2012 1:30 pm

Good Morning,

Was wondering if this option would be feasible.
You have the cycle timer which is great, was wondering if it would be possible to add a "total time running" counter.
There are several reasons why I would think it would improve TM.

1) If the program shuts down unexpectedly it will give you an idea as to how long it was running prior to that point.
2) JetCans pop after so long. Instead of manually time stamping the initial drop so I can remember when to get my items from the safe spot, this would help keep track.

I notice that it appears that you are jamming as much as possible into the UI. I don't even know where there would be room for this. Figured I'd ask anyway.

Well if the program shuts down then where exactly are you going to read the total running time? Besides, the log file (saved in the TinyMiner settings folder under My Documents) does have timestamps at the beginning and the end so there you have your total running time.

About time stamping the jetcans I don't really know, it might prove tricky especially since cans are not present in the Overview. And you are right, the more you complicate stuff the easier it is for people to screw it up. The UI did become a bit cluttered throughout the years, hell it even got the Advanced section due to lack of space on the main page. Soon that will run out of space too due to continuous new additions and improvements...
