    I wish D2 had a built in timer and stat keeper.

    I would like to see a timer built into D2. One that would keep track of the time you were playing the game. And it would break down the time spent playing into time spent in various acts and on various quests.

    It would also be cool to see stats that kept track of how many of each kind of monster you killed. And weather that monster was a Champion, Unique or Boss monster and how many exp you recived for each monster. The exp, of course, is dependent on what clvl you happen to be at the time you killed the monster so you would have to determine exp on the fly.

    It would also be cool if the game could determine if you did a full clear of an area or an act or not.

    I don't think these things would be to hard to impliment in a future Diablo game. Plus it would be cool to have contests that are time based and such. Like how fast can you finish Diablo with only magic items while doing only full clears.

    I'm not asking much. :uhhuh:

    Erm, I dunno if I want to see just how much of my life I'm wasting every time I turn on the game... seems like it'd be depressing, but that's just me. :lol:

    I also agree with K_P, I don't really feel like looking at how much time I waste on a video game every day...it would make me feel kinda bad.

    It would be a nice feature though, as long as you could turn it off :lol:

    D3 rumours? I heard it was secretly under development at a hidden location and will feature as the main arch villain a new character, Derek the Lord of Being Slightly Less Scary Than The Other Demons.

    As to the original topic... it's a good idea. Maybe in the next one, who knows?

    Actually, Sir_General from PhrozenKeep released a plugin for 1.09 that does what you are asking for. I don't know if it has been updated for 1.10 but you could try searching there.

    I think it would be cool when you finish each act to have a recap of time/monsters/etc...as far as a running time count, that would be far to depressing. :lol:

    The "kill counter" is one of the features I miss the most from old Diablo I. I really don't know why they didn't implement it in D2.

    i envisage an irrational number, the figure length being similar to (Pi^(4)/13^(1/2))*10^1000
    i see....lone_wolf..... it has a significance
    :D

    The monster counter would be cool. There are many games that track that kind of thing.

    Not only a monster counter, but how about a counter of how many times you died if playing SC?

    I also think it would be rather depressing to see how much time you have spent in this game. I also bought it the first day it came to sweden. Haven't done any larger brakes maybe a week or two but then I start again.

    How about keeping track of the drops, gold spent, levels attained, pwn's, etc.?

    The rate of uunique drops, for instance, could help in the selection of areas for MF.

    I would like to have the plugin, if it works on 1.100.


    The rumours says that you can customize your portrait in D3 :lol:

    would the monster counter count multiple kills of the same fallen or undead horde after they have been killed & risen? or does that only count as 1 kill regardless?

    I thought I was just having some deja vu until I saw L_W's post, and looked at the dates :bonk:
