    Fractional Frame Wait

    Level 7
      I know there are other (probably better) ways to do this, but is there some
      way to make the Wait in the tempo channel use values other than whole
      seconds? It's a little too complicated to explain why I want to do it this
      way instead of just writing a script. (I could write a script, but it's
      going to interfere with other things, and it will be more complex than it
      needs to be to integrate it with the existing script on that frame.)
      Anyhow, if I have to script it, I'll do it, but I was just wondering if it
      was possible to do any other way.

          Don't know if there is a way to edit that function...

          Quite sure that you have eliminated the following also, but this is what I
          use, when not placing a timer in the framescript:
          - write a script using the milliseconds, and place it on a sprite instead
          - use a timerobject (again milliseconds)

            There are many reasons not to use the tempo channel and no reasons I know of
            TO use it. It's the bain of our existence.

            If you feel as though you can't integerate a frame timer then your code
            could probably be written better. It such a small piece of code to add the
            timer.
