Determine time passed/timed delay without timer

Post by Hunter » Sat Nov 21, 2009 3:08 am

I am trying to find a way to automatically execute a script in Dallas after a certain amount of time (since level/cue start) without the use of a Timer. Is there anyway to script this? As an example, 30 seconds has passed since level start, and then the script executes.

before we are going to discuss this, why can't you use the timer?

Well, I can - But I want to use more timed events than total allowed TimerIDs. Sadly I don't see anyway to do it.

Edit: Nevermind, I've figured out how to do it by creating a chain between two timers and a clause that checks if the previous script executed or not - by setting them to execute only once, it works perfectly :D
