Hi All,

I have run into an issue where I need to have my character wait for a specified period of time.

For example:

- I fight a mob
- The mob dies
- I run a check to see if my spellpoints are 0
- If they are 0 I need to wait 60 seconds for a spellpoint to regen

I'm currently using speedwalk()

so I would like to pauseSpeedwalk()

.. wait a specified period of time ..

resumeSpeedwalk()


Does anybody know how I could accomplish this?

Thanks!
