Counter Questions


    Dec 17 2009 | 12:28 am
    1. What's a good way to stop a counter (@ 0) without turning off the metro?
    2. Is there a way to add/subtract an amount other than 1 to a counter? (like make it jump back 10)?
    TIA!

      1. You can use the third outlet to report when the counter reaches its maximum value and use that to close a [gate].
      2. Use a [*] after your counter to increase the step size.

      There is a jam message to Counter that allows you to set it to some arbitrary place.

      maybe . . .
      1. if you run a counter through a number box, you can limit the min / max value
      2. run the counter thru a [+ 10] or a [- 10]

      i also have a counter question.
      if i have a counter object with no minimun, maximum or direction specified (the object is just counter), how far will it count? infinite? or 2^64?
      thank youu

      Infinite would be a good trick. It uses a signed 32 bit integer, so 2,147,483,647.

      if no direction is specified, it will just jump across the garden like a little dog.

      Or you can make your own counter, and just select 0 to make the count pause:
