Hi guys,
I would like to set a 10 second count down, then a Game Over to pop up but the count down does not begin!
I have this:

Link now works!

I know I am close.
Any ideas please?
Thanks

Try changing "every tick - subtract 1 to seconds" to "every "1" second - subtract 1 to seconds".

You're subtracting 1 from Seconds every tick. One tick is one frame not one second so your Seconds variable will = 0 after 10 frames (a fraction of a second). And you don't seem to be setting a text object to display the Seconds variable.

I wrote a tutorial on timers a while ago - it might be helpful:
