Get the time left before a projectile detonates.


int getProjectileCounter ( projectile projectile )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: projectile:getCounter(...)
Variable: .counter
Counterpart: setProjectileCounter

Required Arguments

  • projectile: the projectile to get the timer of.


Returns the the time in milliseconds to detonation which depending on the projectile type will do different things:

  • Grenades will explode when it hits 0
  • Teargas may be a duration timer
  • Both types of rockets will explode when it hits 0
  • Satchels restarts so I do not think it does anything

With this example you can find out how long does it take for a projectile to explode/end

function getProjectileBoomTime()
outputChatBox("Time for "..getProjectileType(source).." to explode/end is "..getProjectileCounter(source).." miliseconds.",255,0,0)
