Description
I have been using mouser's Progress Bars of Life (PBOL) for many years as a good visual indicator for how much time I have left while doing game jams. I have also been nagging mouser to fix PBOL's docked mode (and weird precision issues) for years, to better suit my wants/needs for game jams.

Here's what PBOL looks like:

Here's what I want it to look like:

But after years of not getting what I want from mouser, I finally went full Thanos.

I'll do it myself.jpg


Features
  • Displays a customizable title for the event
  • Displays a progress bar showing how far into the event you are
  • Displays a countdown timer showing how long until the event starts/ends or how long it has been over
  • Configurable amount of precision (how many units of time to display)
  • Optional monospace font
  • Optional dyslexic font

Planned Features
No other features planned

Usage
Installation
Unzip and run.

Using the Application
Launch the app once to generate the config file.
Edit the config file as you see fit.
Re-launch the app to load the new configuration.
Panic as your deadline approaches.

Uninstallation
It should be mostly "portable" so you can just delete the files wherever you unzipped it to, but it might write some logs to your user path under Deozaan/PB&J (or PBandJ).

Tips
Don't actually panic.

Known Issues
None

I've updated the original post with downloads and I reformatted it to more closely follow the submission template.
