I have a sprite on a timer, but the timer just won't start! I have other timers that work just fine. What might the problem be?
Impossible to say without seeing what you are doing.
Sorry, here it is!
Event sheet Line 154 is the issue.
I ran the game through the debug and saw that the "SecretPassage" timer never even starts.
You don't say how to get to the secret passage, but if I had to guess, I'd say the timer is probably being triggered constantly, so it looks like it isn't starting, when it is constantly starting. You can try a trigger once, but you need to keep track of your states when you want to trigger things to happen.
Hi! Sorry about not being clear. Please check out my capx! I've added arrows.
When you go into the secret passage, stand in the dark, and let your match die without lighting another one, the timer is supposed to start (see event sheet line 147). I've done all those things, and the timer does load, according to the debugging. It just won't start ticking down.

If it starts and not ticking down, then blackhornet is probably right - your timer is restarting again and again every tick.
You can add some debug output (for example Browser->Log "timer start") to check if this really is the case.
You need to update conditions in this event to make it trigger just once.
