RE: Timer help

How hard is your timer??

//____________________

void OnStart()
{
AddTimer("", 5, "Timer_function");
}

void Timer_function(string &in asTimer)
{
//functions go here
}


//_________________

Timer, done in 5 seconds.

I already have that >.>

I didn't ask you to make a timer for me, I'm asking what's wrong with mine.

Nothing is wrong with it by the looks of it.

That's the conclusion I've come to as well, but it WONT work.

Sorry, I should have been more clear. The timer works. After 5 seconds I am able to move again (which the timer does), but the fadein doesn't work.

I want it to fade from black as soon as the game starts, not after the timer ends. I'm trying to simulate the player waking up. The time I want it to take to fade is 5 seconds, so why doesn't my code work?

You are going to need another timer then... Try this:



void OnStart()
{
AddTimer("FadeTimer", 5, "StartGame");
AddTimer("", 0.5f, "Fadeinfunc");
FadeOut(0);
}

void Fadeinfunc(string &in asTimer)
{
FadeIn(5);
}


void StartGame(string &in asTimer)
{
SetPlayerActive(true);
}
