StrFormatTime error with latest POL100 core

Post by yayafan » Mon Dec 16, 2019 7:13 am

I found something wrong with StrFormatTime function:
for example: var time := StrFormatTime( "%I:%M:%S %p", CInt( POLCore().systime )); it doesn't work
change to : var time := StrFormatTime( "%I:%M:%S", CInt( POLCore().systime )); it works
seems %p paramter doesnt' work in StrFormatTime function. If you add %p, then nothing will return.

below is the packagelog when I use ServerTime command to show time information in game:

You can use %H instead %I.

It uses ISO 8601 (the 24-hour clock system).

I haven't tested it, but other people tested it without any problems.
I guess it's some kind of locale problem.
What is the value of the environment variable LANG and LC_TIME

%p writes localized a.m. or p.m. (locale dependent)

I tried with LANG set to CHT and ENU, both have this problem.
What's LC_TIME ? I don't know the mean of it.
