I need it for picture windows games and demos frame rate regulation.
And also to synchronize the FPS between two distant computers.
So i need to calc the time for a frame to be drawn, but mIRC's $tick limitation made it impossible to calc above 60 FPS
(because 1000 / 60 = 16.66ms, and the $ticks accuracy show its limit there).
I don't want a nuclear uptime info, I want games to run fine on any FPS above 60
ex: a ball would move from steps of 60 pixels/frames at 10 FPS, and of 6 pixels/frames a 100FPS, so during 1sec the distance is always the same, whatever the FPS is.
BUT I need to calc the time of the frame processing, and on a 2.6GHZ it takes less than 3ms on a complicated game...
