So you wonder why in your Android emulator, the Date is either behind or ahead once you set it with an epoch time.

Now, here is the thing. While the emulator’s Timezone setting is set to automatically sync, it won’t when in the Android emulator.

You will have to uncheck the setting and select a Timezone manually.

  • Go to Settings > Date and Time
  • Uncheck Automatic time zone
  • Select your desired time zone

That should do it. Your epoch converted Date object will then display the correct date.

This game looked too good to be true at first. Marvel Future Fight features awesome graphics and a plethora of well known Marvel heroes and villains.

You start off with Iron Man, Captain America and Black Widow going through each chapter level by upgrading skills, gears and so called ISO stones that give characters extra juice for either offense or defense capabilities.


I thought I could play this for free forever but it turned out after eclipsing chapter 2, things get a lot harder and it is utterly impossible to defeat even mobs because they can be of a higher level than your characters. Sucks. Each episode in a chapter also takes a long time to transition to next levels.

This bored me to death as I do not want to play all day but waste so many seconds just to transition to each level for every episode. Believe me. The various Marvel characters is really tempting so if your trigger happy fingers cannot keep off from purchasing items using real money to speed your character leveling up, then expect a very hefty bill come payment time.

The daily rewards do help but what annoyed me was the transition time it took to go to each screen. As I said, I used to enjoy this when I first started but as I progresses after 2 chapters I got weary on the waiting.

And hell no will I be tempted to purchase items using real money to speed things up :P. The game is around 1GB so it is pretty huge but the graphics and sounds are worth it.

The gameplay itself and how freemium is applied to it is another story …

JMeter is a great tool. Problem is, when it comes to the Graph Results, nobody understands it. Go look at definitions of Median and Deviation and they have nothing to do with technology. They are more on the Math side of things.


The only data I understood is throughput which is more related to what you are actually doing: stress test. But then again, the graph is abstract there is no way to interpret it.

Luckily, I came across a JMeter plugin by Lars Krogjensen and improved by Ruben Laguna.


Now, doesn’t the graph look much better? Plus, there are more data included displayed in table format. While the data still contains information on deviation, throughput, median and others like in the default, this plugin beats the default one because there are other details like kb/sec, average, url and many others.

Try it out. Visit this link to get the plugin called Statistical Aggregate Report. Extract the lib folder to where you stored your JMeter folder.

Once run, right click on the project, select add listener and look for┬áStatistical Aggregate Report. That’s it! Re-run your test plan and see the improved graph results.
