On the PlaydateSimulator (I'm on Linux), the millisecond field of playdate.getTime() appears to always be 0. It works as expected on the actual Playdate.
This isn't specifically important to me; I was just using it for print() logging as I was exploring the API. Sub-second timing information is available in the Simulator from playdate.getSecondsSinceEpoch(), playdate.getElapsedTime() and playdate.getCurrentTimeMilliseconds().
Create a Playdate project whose main.lua consists of:
import "CoreLibs/object" local gfx = playdate.graphics playdate.display.setRefreshRate(5) function playdate.update() gfx.clear() gfx.drawText(tostring(playdate.getTime().millisecond), 10,10) printTable(playdate.getTime()) end
Run it in PlaydateSimulator.
Expected behavior: number of screen changes between various values from 0 through 999. Console window includes lines like "[millisecond] = 0," where the number similarly changes to various values from 0 through 999.
Observed behavior: both numbers remain 0.
This same program, when installed on my actual Playdate, does display changing numbers on the screen.
