Hi Antm.vm,

For getting the server time you can use our customCode Service in which you can write a code to get server time using Calendar and DateFormat.

It does not depend on End User device time.

any sample for Unity3D in C#?
in unity3d you can get server time like this.

/// <summary>
       /// Finds the current time
       /// </summary>
       /// <returns>Time format</returns>
       public static String GetUTCFormattedTimestamp()
           DateTime datTimeUTC = DateTime.Now.ToUniversalTime();
           DateTime dt = new DateTime(datTimeUTC.Year, datTimeUTC.Month, datTimeUTC.Day, datTimeUTC.Hour, datTimeUTC.Minute, datTimeUTC.Second, datTimeUTC.Millisecond);
           return String.Format("{0:yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss.fff'Z'}", dt);
I tried this code before posting in here.
The code above will simply convert the local time (get by end-use devices) to UTC time.
So it will be definitely affected by end-use devices.
So you must use our custom code service for getting proper solution. I have given you custom code Documentation in above.
the doc is not much for Unity right now, huh Y_Y
