Exclamation [AS2] how to put in a wait function

Someone download my game i made, open it up in flash and look at my actions on the green lazer. Its a simple game. I need to know how to put in a wait function. When your guy dies, he just re-spawns real fast. I need to make it so you have to wait 3 seconds or so, then he re-spawns. Please post the code that will do this, i haven't been able to find any thing that works, it should be a simple code but im not much of a coder.

Check out senocular's tutorial on kirupa.

If you are not familiar with setInterval, you can always use an onEnterFrame function to help you. For example:

ActionScript Code:
//This is in AS2 var i:Number = 1 onEnterFrame = function(){    if (playerIsDead == true) {       i++       if (i > 250) {          i = 1          //Add your player respawn function here          playerIsDead = false       }    } }

Assuming that your framerate is 25 fps, then your player would respawn after 10 seconds, as 25*10 = 250 Change the number 250 to whatever number you want.
