anybody knows how to increment a timer?
in my main scene I have an accountant.
decreasing, when counter = 0 gives game over
, but during the game I have hourglasses that add more time to the timer
I used the on_body_entered of the hourglass to detect the player
but I can not increase the time

You can use proterty wait_time to increase time of Timer. $Timer.wait_time += 10.

it didn’t work

debugger message:
Invalid get index ‘wait_time’ (on base: ‘null instance’)

I created a countdown timer

onready var game_timer = get_node(“Score Counter/UI/Base/game_timer”)

func _process(delta):

func _on_game_timer_timeout():

func _on_time_body_entered(body):
if “player” in body.name:
$game _ timer.wait_time += 10

oh. I am sorry. it is $Timer.wait_time += 10

You can take all properties of node by holding mouse above that property
