You should use setTimer(), set 5 minute to execute and make a recursive algorithm with an outside counter. If the counter reach the 12 value, it means you reach the 1 hour... And you can decrease your variable in each loop and write out into the chat...

What I mean example:                                                                    Time left is 12300 second!

after 2300 seconds..

Time left is 10000 second!

that what I don't know the basics or what the command for use..

And if you can make it or make a example I'll appreciate that.

```local Timer = 12300

function timer()
setTimer(function()
if Timer <= 0 then
Timer = Timer-2300
outputChatBox("Time is:".. Timer)
timer()
end
end, 2300,1)
end```

Thats what you can do with setTimer()

Thanks, I'll try it, what I'm doing is a event, each 1 hour it will be auto-started, so I made every 5 minutes it will appear a message for they know which time left for the event start, i need a way to they know how much remain so the event starts. I appreciate you're help

Sorry for asking but can you fix this coding?

```local Time1 = 3600000
function a( plr )
function timer()
setTimer(function()
if Time1 >= 0 then
Time1 = Time1-600000
for _, in ipairs () do
outputChatBox("The event will start every hour once. TimeLeft:"..Time1" Seconds.", localPlayer, 0, 255, 0)
timer()
end
end
end, 600, 1 )
end
end```

end
end
```

write debugscript 3 in the console panel to see your errors  and try to fix it by yourself first

Oh thanks!
