Countdown Timer

Recommended Posts

I'm hoping I could get some guidance on how to create a count down mission timer. For example: A countdown timer displays 30 minutes at the start at the game. At the end, once it reaches zero, the game ends and you win the game.

Would love to know the answer here as I am stumped looking for the correct trigger and how to set this up. 

Thanks! 

[edit] I used to make custom maps all the time years ago, so I'm getting back in the swing of things and I'm a little rusty.

for TS, in Final Sun:

-Make sure Beginners Mode is turned off (Options > beginners mode)

- Go to Edit> Trigger Editor

- Click on 'New Trigger'
-Select House: Neutral

-Click on the tab "Events" and select 'new event'

Pick event Type:  '8 Any Event'

-Click on the tab 'Actions" and select "new action"

Select Action type: '27 Timer Set' type in  600 at the Parameter (600=30 minuts)

Now you gotta make another one

Click on New trigger

House Neutral,

Event: '14 Mission Timer Expired'

Action: '2 Loser is.'  with Parameter: Neutral

 

Thats it. You can name your triggers too if you want

Yeah, I used to be pretty good at making Single Player maps (I may have a few laying around somewhere). It's all coming back to me now. I'll def give those a look. Thanks again :)

 

[update]
Count down works great!
