The cycler timer is the most important thing about the script. This is the main timer that goes through each of your jobs you are collecting. With this menu you can reset, slow, speed up or edit the main cycler timer. When you push the cycler menu button the status row also changes to show the cycler info in detail. The help button describes a bit about the cycler and then links back to these help pages.
The status row shows the actual elapsed time it is cycling at, the time for 1 cycle, how much time it has slowed down and the cycle timer it will be using when in ham mode.

The reset timer button is used when the script has slowed down too much. Each time the script sees a PRE it will add 10ms by default to the timer so it slows itself down. You can change this add time in the options/timer menu. By having the script slow down it will give you enough time to work on your queue and not be bothered with a lot of PRE's. The script at this time has no way of subtracting the added time because it doesn't know if you are working from queue or have stopped. If you notice the elapsed time getting too high then you can press the reset timer button to subtract all the added time so it goes back to the original timer.
This button adds to the cycler timer 10 milliseconds by default. This is really not needed anymore because of the 3 different timers being used now but I still left it in. The added time gets removed if you push the reset timer button. You can also change the number of milliseconds to be added with this button by changing it in the Options/Timers menu.
This button subtracts 10 milliseconds by default from the cycler timer. This is really not needed anymore because of the 3 different timers being used now but I still left it in. The subtracted time is from any added time that came from the user or automatically added due to PRE's. If all the added time is subtracted then you will be left with the regular timer. You can also change the number of milliseconds to be subtracted with this button in the Options/Timers menu.
The increase cycle timer can be slow due to adding small amount of milliseconds so this button is to add a larger amount of milliseconds to the cycle timer. By default it will add 650 milliseconds but this can be changed in the Options/Timers menu. Only way to take this added time away is to press the reset timer.
