help, whats the code fro

ok so i'm trying to make a timer, that starts from 0 and goes up by 1 sec. i think you have to put a text bos and then set a avriable to it, but i don't know what to type in the action script box, I'm using flash mx 2004

I think hot mine pursuit uses something like that....

thanks in advance.

PS: thats the one last thing i need to add to my new locoroco bounce version, so it would really help if you helped as fast as posible, but no rush ^.^

Re: help, whats the code fro

Code:

var interval_amount = .1; // how often to update timer (in seconds)
var timer:Number = 0;  //initialize timer
this.createTextField("timer_txt", 1, 100, 100, 300, 100); //create text field
updateText();

function updateTimer():Void { //update function
    timer += interval_amount; //add to the time
    updateText();
}

function updateText(){
    timer_txt.text = timer; //update text
}

function startTimer(){ //function to initialize interval
    interval_amount_in_ms = (interval_amount * 1000); //change interval_amount to ms
    var interval:Number = setInterval(updateTimer, interval_amount_in_ms); //interval that updates every "x" ms.
}

startTimer(); // start the timer

This should work.
I broke it down in to different functions to make it simpler.
I also put comments in so you could understand.

Code:

if(_root._currentframe==23)
{
    clearInterval(interval);
}

at least I think that's it.

Re: help, whats the code fro

theres a much simpler way. make a movieclip and put a keyframe on the frame for fps e.g on 18fps put  a keyframe on frame 18. on the keyframe put:

Code:

_root.timer -=1

then make a dynamic text box variable "timer". then make another small movie clip

Code:

onClipEvent(enterFrame){
if(_root.timer == 0){
_root.gotoAndStop(frame);
}
}

that should work

LiveSwif doesn't support Dynamic text boxes people.

@mental_atom
Frame based timers are not better as they may seem simpler.  Since the psp flash player tends to not play exactly "x" fps, it won't make an accurate timer.  Where as a getTimer() or interval function will be time based not frame based.

Yeah but then if you get major lag and it helps you survive something really difficult that should be like 3 seconds long and instead it is 10 due to lag, you get 7 extra points or whatever there.
