Timer name
  • Restart
  • Pause/Resume
  • Reset counter (resets the number of times the counter has run).
  • Remove

Hovering the mouse over a particular timer will display the name, time remaining and how many times the counter has been started. Pausing and resuming does not count towards the starts counter however restarting or stopping and starting the timer does.


  • A maximum of 5 timers may be created at any one time.
  • On reconnect the timers will reset to their full time but not start counting down until started by the player.
  • Start counts do not reset on reconnect.
  • Timers may be hidden when resizing the game window. To re-display simply drag the timer header around the screen.
