I suggested it before, but I found some good examples of time keeping functions with the Windows API, so I make a new suggestion.

Many people now are coding picwin games and animations that needs to store the "current time" in milliseconds, for the synchronization of the frame rate with the speed of the moving objects.

But $ticks (GetTickCount()) is not usefull in this case, because of the 5 to 55ms resolution, and fps sync needs maximum a 1ms resolution.

I've found a webpage that show other methods with a better accuracy and some comparisons between each methods.
Webpage: Selecting Timer Functions

So I would like to see 2 new identifiers inside mIRC :

One for timeGetTime() and one for QueryPerformanceCounter()

The Performance Counter would be the best solution.
