There are many methods to make a script perform an action for a set amount of time - this tutorial will cover the simplest of them.

This script uses the timer - it will repeat the action until the timer is greater than the set limit.

These timer-based repeater scripts can be used in many different ways - the one pictured is for a sprite that will continuously move to the right for the set amount of time.

  • x location is the x of where the sprite goes to before it starts
  • y location is the y of where the sprite goes to before it starts
  • limit is how long the action should be repeated for - eg. if the limit were 10, the sprite would drift to the right for 10 seconds.

If the timer is already being used and cannot be reset without ruining the project, a variable can be used instead of the timer:
