Countdown Timer?

Postby gravy on Wed Mar 23, 2011 4:05 am

Hi Guys,

I've got a countdown timer working and displaying in a text box. However - I'm at a loss for how to trigger an event at the end of the countdown, since it looks like the timer itself runs in its own thread.

Any insight for me? I just want to countdown from 15mins (which I have now, using a timer called "TEST_CLOCK", displaying in a text box with text of
%timer>TEST_CLOCK>countdown%.

I'd like to trigger an event once the timer has run out.

Thanks!! i'm sure I'm overlooking something easy?

Here is a simple method to do it, there are additional methods using xLobby triggers to monitor the status of the event and offer more features + options but I think this is what your looking for, if not let me know.

This sample shows a timer event that immediately opens a screen overlay then at 15 seconds closes the overlay.
