Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

    So you want to increase the score every second eh?

    Use "Intervals", which call a function every second (or every half second... or quarter... actually you specify the time in milliseconds so it could be however many you want).

    So how about this:

    Code:
    increaseScore = function(){
       score += 10
    }
    
    scoreTimer = setInterval(increaseScore,1000)
    The above code will call the function "increaseScore" every second.
