PLUGIN DESIGN OVERVIEW:


To ensure an optimal user experience, it's important to understand the distinction between two types of objectives some of the properties serve in the plugin UI: those that enhance the user experience and those that directly impact the core functionality and behaviour. Let's delve into these categories to help you navigate the plugin effortlessly.​

PROPERTIES FOR ENHANCING USER EXPERIENCE:

These properties focus on providing additional customization options and improving the overall usability of the plugin. While they don't directly affect the core functionality, they play a vital role in tailoring the plugin with a specific purpose.

Here's what you need to know:

The OBS Native UI interface can sometimes become cluttered when using plugins with complex configurability. To address this issue, this plugin has been designed to display or hide certain properties based on their relevance. It's important to understand that some properties, while relevant, are intentionally hidden to prevent an overwhelming amount of information. Therefore, it is crucial to carefully examine each property to determine if it reveals any extendable settings.​

Here are some Properties that will simplify or expand available properties:
1. Timer Settings
2. Marker Settings

PROPERTIES AFFECTING CORE FUNCTIONALITY AND BEHAVIOR:​

These properties directly impact how the plugin operates and can significantly influence its core functionality. Understanding and adjusting these settings will ensure the plugin behaves precisely as you intend.

Here's what you should consider:

The Plugin provide Timer focused functionality that can be configured for various scenarios.
The Plugin provides two modes, each with some unique features and some that overlap between the two modes.​

The Plugin modes are:
  • Count Up
  • Count Down
The plugin initializes with the Count Up mode as the default mode and with a Basic layout which expands to an Advanced layout.

The Basic layout hide additional properties that will only become available in the Advanced layout.

Switching between the Basic and Advanced layout has no impact on the features or any defined settings of the plugin, it only shows or hide properties in the Plugin Settings UI. This serves the purpose of removing clutter when only a simple layout is required. This solution was deployed because many of the features are not used by the average user and having it all displayed in a small area can be overwhelming. The downside is that it may create a sense that the settings are obscured or unintuitive.

Amazing program! I just want to know how to access the "Autoload Last Saved Timestamp" in version 5.8! I'm doing a charity stream for a total of 30 hours, so I'd like to be able to resume the count up to the 30-hour goal when I start my stream the next time, instead of manually having to adjust it every stream, since I'll be streaming multiple days in a row.
Hi

Great script so far. 5 stars if you could add more timers. Need 2 extra timers with separate count and connect to textbox in obs.

Streaming handball and want to have a timer for xx:xx tíme since last goal, for both teams, and the main counter free for other things.

Then you owe me another star because it is already possible. Simply duplicate the Script and give it a unique name and add it in the script index with the first one. You can add several scripts if your system can support it. Check the Main Description page, it includes some links for video tutorials.
Thanks for this easy-to-customize stopwatch! Also nice are the comprehensive YouTube tuts on installation and settings.

Thank you. Planning to do more vids on this in the future.
Amazing work ! Many great features ..

Thank you for the feedback (:
Best timer out there with a lot of features.
If you can add the feature to count up infinite hour instead of only 24, that would be nice!

Best timer out there! Includes * a LOT * of options. Developer responds to issues quickly. Amazing!

Thank you!
maybe 5 stars, but i need more features :D
I use touchportal and the idea is, to raise the countdown up for like 5 minutes (you can change the add-time in the settings) with a press on the tablet which is running touchportal.
So you have a countdown with the function to raise it up if for example a subscription on twitch is coming to you.
I hope you understand my idea :)
BUT is an amazing work by your team
Great help to OBS

Thank you.
The best countdown script with the most feature set !!! And the developer is still updating, adding new features and listens to the users

Thank you for the feedback and rating!
Great script. It has everything I need. However, if any of my sources in my scene is using a countdown timer, switching into that scene makes my stinger transition lag. Is there a fix to this?

Thank you for the feedback and rating! This is probably an issue that should be raised in the discussion tab so that it could be looked into.
