Timer trouble?

Dear anybody,

Just wondering if anyone has problems accessing Timer properties within declared functions

Eg if I create a Timer "Game" {Game = CreateTimer(5)} as i declare global properties and access "TimerTicks" from within the game cycle then no problems

BUT

if i declare any function eg CheckGameCycle() and try to access TimerTicks(Game) then I get errors saying "Invalid handle".

Anybody know why? It is almost as though the TimerTicks called is a local variable within the Function CheckGameCycle() and not recognised. Do I need to declare the Timer as Global and if so how?

Thanks in advance

Julius
