    The pause action part pauses the current action list at the position you inserted it & then resumes with the rest of the action parts once the time you specified is up.

    display text "blah blah blah! <p1000ms>"
    pause for 2000ms -- pause > actions below will continue after 2000ms (2 seconds)
    play animation "protagonist_wink"
    some other actions


    There are a few other ways to pause the action part list too, as you can use wait until based action parts. Simon added a few new ones to the action part list for the most recent update.

    ok i searched for "timer" in this forum and i found a tutorial called "test shader" now it is a bit more clear. I have to create a timer value add or subtract  1 and pause then jump to action part1,

    You mean a loop?

    Create called by other action block (anywhere in the editor that you can create actions). & inside of that add a pause action part, set it to 1000ms. Next add the set value action part, then add a jump to x action part (leave it as absolute & #1). Job done, you've created a looping action block that updates a value every 1000ms (1 seconds).

    Finally you will need to call that action block at beginning of each scene probably otherwise when you load a save file it won't automatically start it looping.
