    how to make my timer reset rather than keep adding up? (every 10,000 + random(10,000)

    Hello! I am making a video game where when a certain thing is happening, every 10,000 + random(10,000), a monster will be released.
    But I do not want this to keep counting up. I will block the monster once, and then the next time it completely gets released and kills me before I even have a chance,
    because the counter stayed from the last time when I stopped it from getting out.

    For example, the monster will be released in 10 seconds if I do not stop it.
    I stop it in 9 seconds, which makes it so it will be released in just 1 second next time it tries,
    how do I make this event start over fresh from 0?

    Thank you!

    Try to make an event when you kill a monster, or use a loop.

    Make it so when the monster is stopped the counter is set to 0 as a 1 time event under special--limit conditions--run this event once

    I would use a value or a counter. Have the value count up every 1 second. When the value reaches 10,..release monster. If you stop the event from happening under 10 seconds, just reset the value to zero again and it will start over. There are a few other events you'll need, but here is an example that explains it. I used a counter.

    The timers go far beyond the monster simply being released though. The monster has stages.

    -Gone
    -Inside Coset
    -Inside Room
    and then various timing to make it walk throughout the house at a random pace.
    With all these timers I'm just hoping for a way to make all of them reset each time rather than keep running.

    I have been considering the use of a counter, but I am trying not to fall back to that unless absolutely necessary. I'm talking about multiple monsters with lots of different timers,
    similar to Five Nights At Freddy's, and it would take me a lot of time to work everything from the ground up again.

    Thank you! I finally took the time to rework the entire system using counters and it works spot on!
    It only took 20-30 minutes, and it'll definitely help me as I continue development, thanks!

    You can also use the alterable value of an Active object, then each monster can have their own timer built into their actives.
