Hello Everyone,

I need your help on something and i would really appreciate it. I just cant get my head around doing it. Basically what I want is,when I change level in my game I want to text on the screen saying "Next Level" for about 2 seconds, then disappear. This might seem really basic but i just want to know whats the best way to do this.

Does anyone know how ?

Thanks for you help,

Something along the lines of...


1  
2  
3  
4  
5  
6  
7  
8  
9  
int displayTime = 50; //Change accordingly
public void update() //Or whatever your update/draw method is called
{
    if(displayTime > 0)
    {
        //Code to display text here
       displayTime -= 1;
    }
}


That's a really simple way to do it.
