    How does the countdown timer - to date - work in Nutcracker? I was thinking of using it in the lead up to my show to let people know the start date/time, if it works the way I think it is supposed to work. I tried a few dates and only zeros showed up.

    Hi

    I was playing around with this and found if I enter 1025 12 in the text field the timer counts down.

    I think the first two digits adjust the GMT, third and fourth is the day of the month, then a space.. the last two digits are the month.

    Entered 0122 10, computer time 09:20pm timer shows 0d 3h 39m 21s

    I got it down to be out 1 hour, as we are on EDST.

    If i could enter 0022 10, it would be spot on.

    I found the same thing, would be nice if it used the zone stored in PC and have a place for time in the count down part. Example if I want to use it as a countdown timer until lights on
