How do I create a countdown before game starts?

Hello all!

Now I know this question may seem like one that is easy to answer, however I have not been able to accomplish this. How do I set up or create a timer so that once the layout loads, a 3 second timer (which also displays text on screen) activates and the game begins after the countdown is complete? I've searched the forums and I haven't really found anything close to what I want.

I have created my own sprite font and I want to display the numbers "3, 2, 1" for the countdown and have my game begin once that countdown is complete. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Thank you so much for the link! I wasn't able to download it but I found something similar. Is it possible that you could send another link?

Thank you again! I really appreciate the help.

The easiest way I can think is the 'wait' action (it's a system action) stick it at beginning of whatever event starts you match, and you can queue the events via 'wait' for a customizable amount of seconds. :)

Hope this helps! :D
