Hey like the other truck I was wondering if there is a certain entity for a timer with a beginning and an end or if that is just a plugin? I understand there are textures for it and such but yeah.

EDIT: I wouldn't happen to be trigger_counter would it?

trigger_counter counts how many times it's been triggered, it's a part of the setup. So lets name it 'counter'.
The other part can be e.g. a func_train (with 2 path_corners) that needs exactly 1 second to get from one path_corner to the other. Lets call it 'train'.
Then in the properties of both of the path_corners you set the Fire on pass to 'counter'.

Now you make a button that triggers 'train' (this is the button that starts the timer).
Now in the trigger_counter's properties set the Count before activation to the desired number of seconds and set the target to whatever you want to happen when the timer reaches 0.

If you want your timer to be visible, there are some ways you can do it but I'm in school right now so I'm a little short on time. So maybe later.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

I am trying to make a counter that say if you pressed your use button on it and then you ran and pressed another button it would tell you how long it took.

It says there are no entities tied to it.
there is supposed to be an entity tied to it correct? Also I believe i am missing some important entities is there a file i can import to hammer to get those?

Do you maybe have Group ignore turned on (check if the ig at the top of the hammer windown is pressed)?
All the entities you need should be in the expert.fgd.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.
