different time zone bug

Postby Manfred » Wed Oct 24, 2012 4:19 am

Kent I have a problem, my server even though he was in Europe, the game is for Brazilian players, this time of the year we have a different time zone called DST, ie 00.00 the day October 20, 2012 our clocks were advanced by 1 hour, ie when it was 00:00 was actually 01:00. then today when I schedule a tournament for 21:00 pm for example, it starts at the correct time in the lobby to put the player appears as if the tournament begin at 22:00 pm. you could tell me what might be happening? if necessary I can take a screen shot and send it by e-mail.

The server converts the local server time to UTC and sends that to each player, where the client code converts that back to the player's local time. So both the server and the player's computers need to be set to their correct local time and with the correct locale settings that know about their own daylight savings time changes. Are you setting your server's clock to Europe time or to Brazil time? If you are setting it to Brazil time, make sure all the Windows locale settings are also for Brazil.
