I am running through the "My first game" tutorial and I am getting close to the end of the project. I'm stuck at the conclusion of the HUD section. The tutorial had me create a function: "func showgameover():". Then it asked me to "connect the timeout() signal of MessageTimer and the pressed() signal of StartButton and add the following code to the new functions:"
The problem is that I dont know how to connect the "timeout()" signal of MessageTimer to the pressed() signal of StartButton. I feel like something is missing here. At first I missed this part and entered the two functions above without creating a connection to the signal because I couldnt find a signal to connect, but I think I need to make a signal connection somehow because when I run the game, the startbutton does not work and the "Get Ready" messages overlays the game title as the below screenshot shows:
Attached is also the editor screen of where I am at in the code, and a screen shot of a section of tutorial where i'm stuck.
Thank you in advanced for your help. I tried to be as descriptive as possible without making this post too complicated.
