How do I get the clock in my game to stop the game?

When my clock gets to 0 then it starts counting -1, -2, -3 etc... Sad

Whereas what i want is the level to end.

I suspect it has something to do with this line (below in quotes) but am not sure what... Confused

"if (elapsed = startCount-current)"

Here is the whole code below:

onClipEvent (load) {
start = getTimer();
startCount = 90;
}
onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
current = (getTimer()-start)/1000;
if (elapsed = startCount-current) {
counter = Math.floor(elapsed);;
} else {
_root.gotoAndStop("done");
}
}

Thankyou for your time Laughing

Your if statement doesn't have a reason to ever be false as you are just setting the value of elapsed each time.

try this...

Code:
onClipEvent (load) {
   start = getTimer();
   startCount = 10;
}
onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
   current = (getTimer()-start)/1000;
   
   elapsed=startCount-current
   counter = Math.floor(elapsed);
   
   if (counter <= 0) {
      _root.gotoAndStop("done");
   }
}

Hi m8, thanks 4 ur help - that sorted it out Smile

The final question is how do I add a time bounus? And add multiple time bonuses? Basically if you complete the game in 30 seconds you get 100 and if you complete it in 60 seconds you get 50...

I had a go myself but this just made the score tick away until it got to 30 seconds Confused

I want it to add to the main score on the next page - possibly in 2 boxes (Score and time bonus) then a box that adds it up...

Or 1 box... Smile

Thanks for your help

Take a look at this

Hit the 'game complete' button when you want to simulate game completion (not sure how this is triggered in your game). Try clicking at various times i.e. more than 60 secs left, more than 30 secs left or just let the clock run out.

I've added an increment score button just for fun and so you can see how I added them up on the complete page.

Although there are probably a 1001 better ways to do it this works and might give you some ideas.

Download source fla

Hope it helps,

Thankyou, that really helped Smile

The last question is if I have a Level 2, 3, 4 etc. how do I add up the score from each level?

Would I have to name the "totalScore" something different after each level? And then get it to add up after the last level?

Thankyou for your time Smile

You could do if you wanted to show a full break down of scores for each level. Or you could just keep adding the level score to an overall total

levelScore = score + timeBonus
totalScore = totalScore + levelScore

or

totalScore = totalScore + score + timeBonus

should work too...
