Hi,


Draggable stopwatch wich can stayed in position everywhere in any screen is already in the mod.


If you mean functional draggable stopwatch from tycho, I have to edit menu_1024_768.ini and to test it.

(but tycho's functional draggable stopwatch is without ticking sound outside of the scope screens.)

Eric, one suggestion : when you make these improvements , it could be useful if you will also tell the name of the files that were modified so i can just replace those files without the need to uninstall/reinstall the entire mod .
