    System Time in the OSD?

    There are two ways to achieve this without plugins.

    1. in MSI Afterburner Settings -> On-Screen Display-> enable "Show system time"

    2. In MSI Ab Settings -> Monitoring -> click on the three dots on the right of "Show in On-Screen Display" to bring up On-Screen Display layout editor -> Section "Separators", Field Prolog add in Variable %Time%
    Example:

    Hey there,

    thats a super interesting and helpful post, thanks for that !! Though i have some advanced questions related to that.

    i'll add a screenshot on how i want it to be and how it is now:

    osd.png

    i want the time to be shown in the FPS column (besides the fps column after the frametime, see the red frame) and i want it to be colored white not orange. how can i achieve that ? would be very happy if you or someone else could help me, thats the last bit i need to make my personal osd "perfect" for me). ((also don't mind the 30fps in WoW, its only because i made the screenshot while the game window was inactive (with the windows snipping tool))

    /e: nevermind, i managed on my own. might not be perfect but it will be good enough.

    managed with <P=> and <C=> commands.

    one additional question that maybe someone knows. can i set a title before the time is displayed ?

    /e: nevermind i managed to do it all alone. pretty easy and really well made :D my overlay looks like this now:

    Thanks to @Andy_K for giving me the idea to improve my personal osd and add the one thing i was missing :D

    Any idea why %Time% is not working in the Hypertext Overlay Editor?

    Because there are different macroses, for 12 and 24-hour time formats. And they are demonstated in video, demonstrated in sample overlay layout included in distributive and visible in the macro list in the editor.

    Quick question. Is there any way to have just the hour and minutes? So it displays HH:MM.
    This turned out to be the perfect solution for having a system clock overlay in games but I find HH:MM:SS a bit unappealing/distracting.
