Aelg, can you tell me: where you are at currently if there is DST in use at the moment or not?

I Am living in Germany and DST started March 25th this year. However, this shouldn't even bother the timer, that only has to care about Eastern US time.

I just made two screenshots (well, 20 minutes ago).

1. The troll saying 1d 15h left:

Current time at Virginia Beach, indicating there are only 1d 14h left:

My local time in Germany was 12:50PM, but that shouldn't even matter, unless the timer somehow takes account of my local time, which would be absolutely unneccessary.

Ok. I made some changes to the timer script. It should be working now.

Unfortunately DST does have an influence when it comes to AutoTroll. AT was created before the days of dynamic web pages. It short it creates it's own pages and then upload the page to the website after each change. That is why updates only show after a new turn has been received for that game. The changes I make can take up to 3 days to populate to all the game pages. This is also the reason why DST has an influence as it is a countdown to a specific date on your local PC and not on the server.

Let me know if you see any more errors.

Well, at this moment, the correct remaining time is shown. Hm, maybe I should start making my turn.
Thanks, BitMask.
