ActionScript 3.0 :: Working With A Countdown Timer And Drag & Drop Game?

Nov 27, 2010

I'm new with flash and I'm having some trouble with my script. The idea is to start the game by pressing the start button, and the countdown starts. The start button will then disappear. In 60 seconds, the idea is to try to drag all the garbage objects into the respective recycling bins. Only 1 try per object.The object will return to it's original position if it's been placed wrongly, mouseevent for that object is then disabled.
After 60 seconds, the game will end and all mouseevents are disabled. The start button reappears and I can restart the game again.

ActionScript 3 :: Countdown Timer Not Displaying Time In TextField

I created a game in AS3 using a tutorial written for AS2 but I can't get the timer working correctly. The game contains 3 frames, a start screen, game loop, and end screen. the timer starts on frame 2, and counts down (tested this with a trace). When the timer reaches 0 I want to go to frame 3 which is the end game screen but my code isn't working.

var fl_SecondsToCountDown:Number = 30;
var fl_CountDownTimerInstance:Timer = new Timer(1000, fl_SecondsToCountDown);
fl_CountDownTimerInstance.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, fl_CountDownTimerHandler);
theTimer.text = String(fl_SecondsToCountDown);

ActionScript 2.0 :: Date Countdown Timer / Specify Time Zone

May 16, 2007

I've been using your tutorial for a date countdown timer with great sucess, although now I realise because it took the date from the computer that is viewing it and because the event is counting to an event in India, it would be wrong because up until now, ive just put the date and time so obivously it would be wrong because it would be that time/date of that timezone. Is there anyway I can alter the actionscript for a specific timezone?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Countdown Timer To Event With All Time Zones?

Sep 19, 2009

I just want to make a timer counting down to an event and I found this one:

//Create your Date() object
var endDate:Date = new Date(2009,9,5);
//Create your Timer object
//The time being set with milliseconds(1000 milliseconds = 1 second)
var countdownTimer:Timer = new Timer(1000);
[Code] .....

which works good enough for me, but the problem is that I need this timer to count the same time no matter in which time zone are you, but unfortunately this isn't the case.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Create A Countdown Timer To Exact Time (not Just Date)?

Nov 6, 2008

coding, create a *******' timer to the exact time. I found billionsof tutorials to countdown to a day, but NOBODY can provide a sampleto countdown to a date and time (i.e. Dec. 25 @ 8PM).I need this to countdown to a TV show's premier. And I'm adesigner not a coder... so there has to be a FLA file out therethat I could snag and just update the graphics and plug in a timeand date, and then it counts down once I make a SWF?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Flash Countdown Timer - Change The Targeted Time On The Fly Using Xml

Mar 11, 2007

I am looking for a component/tutorial/movie that is a FLASH countdown timer/clock that you can change the targeted time on the fly using xml. So, the clock might countdown for 4 days, 3 hours and 19 minutes to an event. but then halfway through i decide i want to change the event to a day later, so i need to us xml to dynamically change the clock to add 24 hours or whatever onto the clock without having to go back into the flash file.

Additionally, this flash file will be part of a flash screensaver that has xml driven photo gallery in the background. this photo gallery i can do, but i am looking for a flash countdown with xml access. I am willing to pay/donate for it if there are no free ones available.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Countdown Timer, Timezone Offset Stuck In Eastern Time?

Dec 22, 2006

I have a countdown timer that will be used for events that happen locally central time, mountain time, etc. However, if someone on eastern or pacific time (or any variation of the 4 timezones) looks at the countdown timer, I want to make sure that it shows the time relative to their timezone.I thought i could read the user's timezone offset (Date.getTimezoneOffset) and subtract from it the hardcoded timezone offset of the event (passed as a variable from XML depending on the event's "primary" timezone).

Am I getting the math here wrong? The "net" timezone offset from the user - the event timezone offsets SHOULD add into the countdown time.However, Date.getTimezoneOffset, regardless of my Mac or PC timezone setting/time, keeps showing an Eastern timezone offset of 5 hours. What's going on?The time is correct when I hardcode an event timezone offset to anything other than Eastern time. I think the problem is that it's not getting a user timezone offset OTHER than -5 hours for Eastern Time.Code for the timer is here (assume that the target event timezone has been passed in):

this.onEnterFrame = function() {
var today:Date = new Date();

Actionscript 3 :: Game Timer Not Calculating Start Time Properly?

Jun 22, 2011

The game is like Asteroids where four rocks are placed in the corners of the stage at the beginning and then start moving randomly around the stage. The problem is the timer used is started the moment that the flash file starts not the moment the player clicks the start button. So if you are on the start screen for 5 seconds before you click play when the game actually begins the rocks are where they would be after 5 seconds of play, which could be right over the player.
