Countdown to New Year
« on: December 29, 2008, 07:15:23 AM »
Happy Holidays everyone.  I am hosting a New Years Eve tourney and would like to set up TD to count down to the New Year while playing the game.  Is this possible?  If so, is it possible for it to go to a countdown screen when there are say 10 seconds left and then play a sound event at midnight?  Thanks.

Well, you can create an event that can play a sound and/or display a message on-screen when it gets near midnight.  But sounds to me like you'd need to have the screen sets display a particular screen at that time - and currently the screen set Conditions don't allow for this.  They will in the next version, but not yet...

Closest I could get was a flash countdown clock that you have to embed into the layout. below is the file and the code you need to enter into a cell to get it to show.

Code:-

<embed src="C:\Users\Gary\Desktop\free-flash-clock-95.swf" width="150" height="150" type="application/x-shockwave-flash">
</embed>

You will need to change the code to where you have the .swf file stored see picture.


Website where the clock came from and it has countless others:- http://free-flash-clocks.com/

Its more of a work around than a soloution for the countdown timer but the analouge clocks could work very well in future layouts.
