    How to do this?


    The player interacts with something. After that a hint is shown automatically after x seconds.


    Thx :)

    one way that i can think of is to make a variable as a counter in the event...


    say you interact with it ...turn a switch on called whatever you want "timer" for example...


    then a common event, when timer is on


    -wait 60 frames


    -if variable (X) = (number of seconds you want here)


    then isplay hint in a chat box


    -ELSE


    -variable (X) +=1     (variable increases by 1 second)
