Timer Implementation

In my game the user needs to do certain things under time pressure like closing a door before the zombie gets through, otherwise...;-)

What would be the best appraoch here?

Thanks in advance!


  • You have a few options: Cutscenes can be given a start delay time, so that they won't run immediately when called (useful for e.g. a Game Over cutscene - call it as you begin the "pressure scene", and cancel it if the player wins (using the Kill command with the Object: Send message Action).

    You can also set ActionLists to run in the background (change the When running field in the Inspector to Play In Background) - this will turn e.g. the Engine: Pause game Action into a delay, rather than a gameplay blocker.

    You can also make QTEs, check out the QTE tutorials if you're interested.
