I am stuck on how to create a timer, but not a timer()

How would I create a loop where every one second everything inside the loop is called? ex)


while x > x
do
if nextsecond()
print (second)
endif
loop
endwhile

I hope this kinda explains what I am looking for, thanks!

I'm assuming you still want other stuff to run outside the one second loop so here's a version that ONLY runs the increment every second but prints the current value all the time:

So I did it how you showed and added the function calls I needed but it doesn't work at all for some reason it never even loops, here is how I have it.

My mistake, it should be checking for 1 not 1000:


I was on my phone so I couldn't test it. Sorry.

baxslash fell into the same trap I always hit - the DBPro timer was milliseconds, AppGameKit is seconds

Doesn't help that the docs say milliseconds either...
