Will it be possible to have a progress bar, which countdown eg: 3 minutes for the player to accomplish some tasks within the available time?, if time is over the level end?

I need this in an educational games, collection alphabet blocks, or anything else for that matter (in a specific time period)

I've done a basic 2d game in AGK , but would like to expand and change to a 3D Game using GG.
I know it will be possible with Lua, but my Lua knowledge and GG knowledge is limited... pretty new to GG.

Any help appreciated...
Thanks

With my little Lua knowledge I got this going...
Will it be possible to addgraphics (like a progressbar) instead of text?

Yes, using sprites.

Create a simple bar sprite and scale it in x or y appropriately.

is it supposed to reset if you leave the zone? if not you will want to remove or restructure so it doesn't check if you leave the zone while the timer is active

pretty sure this should work for adding a timer bar

Thanks guys

I got the progress bar working with this script


Secondly. You can collect "milk bottles" , that "increase the time ( secondsleft) with 5, if you hit them with this script


It kind off working..., but the progress and Prompt increase with 5 for a split second, and then back to the original count value

any advice please?

because you reset secondsleft in your main script
secondsleft=max-counter

you should add the time bonus to your maxTime
