I'm working through the tutorial, trying to understand signals.
I have a parent who will receive a custom signal from a child and then print to console.
Currently, when I call Object.connect() at runtime in the parent, the child is _ready first and therefore emits its signal *before* the parent has a chance to connect a listener.
Therefore, the signal can't be processed and nothing happens.
However, if I use the UI and connect my custom signal using the Node's Signal connection interface, then the parent does connect before the child is _ready and processes the emitted signal.
Now, I could yield in the child and specifically wait for the parent's _ready function manually, but I'm wondering how I can write the code to mimic the timing of what happens when I connect the signal in the editor?
$Timer.connect("my_signal", self, "_on_Timer_my_signal")
print("my signal made it!")
Child (node named Timer):
