Countdown timer

Recommended Posts

How often does the thread execute? I'm assuming you've got the thread timed so the game code "ticks" once every so often. If it's "ticking" every 10ms, just have a counter that starts at 0 and is incremented every "tick", wait for it to hit 100 then reset it and decrement your countdown variable.

Try this:

long t,current_time;

somewhere start your timer:
t = System.currentTimeMillis() + 30000;

in your game loop:

current_time = t - System.currentTimeMillis();


P.S. It's the first time i use my profile signature.... i am not sure about how it looks like.
