Sorry it's taken me so long to get my act together here at Construct2.
Every programming language and environment seems to has it's own unique
quirks and eccentricities.
Anyway, here is my "For X Seconds" loop. It uses a random timer which
goes off and my character throws an object. My problem remains that the "For X Seconds" timer appears to be going off while my SPLASH layout is being viewed. When a use clicks the START GAME button and my main GAME layout displays this "For X Seconds" loop has already executed.
UPDATE: Since I'm new to C2, I finally got around to exporting my game to the actual HTML5 web files and I noticed that my Main Game layout is called "sheet0", and since I created my SPLASH layout afterward, it is called "sheet1".. I don't know if this matters...
