Hi everyone,

working on a mobile project, I have a countdown running (a Label displaying the child's (Timer) wait_time). The timer "pauses" (interrupts) when switching to another app (not closing the game, just "shifting" to the background...), so the counter continues on re-opening the game from where it paused.

What I want is the counter not to interrupt. Is that possible?

I believe this is helpful:

So I assume it's not really possible to keep things running in the background and necessary calculations etc. need to be refreshed on focussing-in again...
