Why isn't my sub health bar working?

Postby Evil_Nazgul0616 » Sat May 04, 2013 2:09 am

I have a sub health bar that's supposed to show how much time the player has left in the boss battle. The problem is it's not showing up.

The part that displays the health bar is a panel_rolling-S set to hidden and connection type is player. It has two events:


The countdown starts when a separate part sets the panel_rolling's movement to ON.

Hopefully this is enough information so someone can tell me exactly why the bar isn't showing up?

Set that event on the main Core (ID 1) and apply to child parts.

Try making a solid part that can't be destroyed and is out of sight.
Make a child part that will be the timer and hidden.
Then do what Garo says (set the event on the solid part and apply to child parts)
