Invalid argument to time encode.
 
When i start zmud now I get the following error:

---------------------------
zMUD
---------------------------
Invalid argument to time encode.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------


Any idea what is causing this to occur? I assume it is a trigger or timecode i am using but I don't know what has changed over the past two years that would break this. Everything seems to work fine when I connect to a mud so it is hard to figure out.

If anyone has any suggestions on what to check please let me know!

Thanks in advance for your help!

Try checking to make sure your system clock is properly set.

Properly set as in how? In sync with some random atomic clock website or is there something else I am missing? The first few times I ran ZMud I would get this but now I get it every time.

Let me know.

Thanks,

I have never heard of this particular error before. You should let us know what verison your using and what if anything has changed since when you used to receive this error periodically to now when you get it always.

Hehe, again that is easier said then done.

I am using the latest version...7.21

Last thing I remember doing was importing an old backup I had which could have caused the problem but I dont get any other errors.

That probably does not help huh?

Is there any commands that I could search for that may be causing this?

Thanks again for your help!

No as in double click the time on your task bar and make sure that it's set to the correct time (am/pm) month, day & year

Aye, the time and everything is set right.

Anything else?

I guess there is no hope for this issue? Any idea how I can search thru settings to find out what could be causing the problem?

Thanks,

Hey it's 2016. I'm running windows 10 from Brisbane Australia with a correctly set time-clock to my local time. Just started getting this issue.

On the toolbar, click More Actions and select Set Encoding.
