Yes, I am still fairly new to dark basic. In my program, I want to have a game timer. That is, I want the number 300
printed to the screen at start up. Then every second, the number 300 goes to 299, 298, 297 and so on. I have figured out how to do this in my program, but there is a problem. It seems like the number blinks on and off instead of just changing every second. How do I do this?

You have to CLS after you set the cursor or else your numbers will overlap. Try this-

Okay, this is cool, but I want this to work in a 3d game. How do you do this? This is my code. When I run the project, all I see is the numbers, not the sphere. I want the player to be able to see the sphere also.

rem my timer code
sync on
sync rate 30
make object sphere 1,30
a=10
t=timer()
do

set cursor 0,0
`gotta CLS right here or your digits overlap
cls
print a
if timer()-t>1000
dec a
t=timer()
endif

if upkey()=1 then move object 1, +2

if a<0 or a=0 then end
sync
loop
