How do I spawn enemies in waves?

Hi all, can anyone suggest an easy way to spawn waves of enemies, for example my first wave is easy then getting progressively harder. I did work out a way but it seemed really hard work so I'm sure someone must know an easy way!!!
Cheers

Well, you gotta remember this

In general depending on how complex your waves are a decent approach seems to use groups inside the event sheet and enable/disable those as necessary. So you basically plan out what the next wave should look like, place all the spawn/setup events into a group, make it disabled and enable it when the time comes.

If your waves are super-complex it can get as far as making a system that, for example, takes something you have placed into a layout and stores all the important things into an array - then you save the array and use an opposite function to load the settings and create a new wave.

It's all going to take some work, either way.
