How do you make a timer

Ok i need to know how to make a timer.

Timers are started by using TICK <value> where <value> is greater that 0, and are stopped by using <value> equal to 0.

Do timers need to start with the timer script like 1 1 111 9?


TICK 1000
KILL TARG
TICK 0


would this make a timer that kills EVERY 1000 ticks and is this all i need to make a timer?

Wouldn't killing TARG mean that your agent would remove itself? I believe that you do need to put the "scrp family genus species 9" bit first.

I found an old thread on Gameware which discusses timing a bit. Hope it helps.

The TICK command starts the timer script, it isn't a timer in itself.

So you'd need this:
scrp 1 111 111 9
kill targ
endm

and when you add the
tick <value>
command somewhere it'll start repeating the above script every <value> ticks.
