I have the same requirement for a countdown timer, counting down from 5 seconds to start, running in a one minute loop.

I came up with this solution, before I discovered this forum!

I have created a Microsoft Powerpoint slide show with 60 black slides, and set it up to automatically transition the slides every one second. The last 5 slides have large digits in white, 5, 4, 3, etc and a sound file associated with each slide, with 5 - 1 being one tone, and the last slide having a different tone.

If you don't have Microsoft Powerpoint, you might be able to do the same thing with StarOffice, which is an open source office productivity suite, but I have not tested this.

Program code is the same. It's not reliable so will be redesigned when this feature will be implemented to common release.

hmm, not really, I have already use the Timer's sound for Zero, it works fine.
Just it seems that the "sound on run" function is not quite stable in this version. It tends to skip some sound when counting down. I did try to lower the interval / or extend the counting time, but it still skip strangely.
God.. I just want to save the configurations and play the sound at the end.

Is there a newer version that have "sound on run" function? by then I can take a shoot. :)
Actually I begins to use XNSW since 1.5, the sound function is good, just it cannot "reload" the sound schedule using configuration files. but 1.61, it can save the schedule but does not play correctly.

As I have programmed it to play 5 sounds at the last 10 sec (i.e. play 1 alert sound every 2 sec).

It seems the last sound falls into zero. There is a Timer's sound for zero.

This version save the "sound on run" settings correctly in config file. The only problem is that it skipped some sounds at the last seconds.
As I have programmed it to play 5 sounds at the last 10 sec (i.e. play 1 alert sound every 2 sec). not all the sound is played

The main issue is to introduce it seamlessly. If you have ideas feel free to share them.

This internal timing feature is a fantastic addition. I urge you to add it to the main program on a permanent basis. This internal timing capability is the key reason I bought a full copy of XNote. It doesn't look like v1.60 has this feature.

Sounds are stored in xnsw*.ini files under the user's profile folder. If you need portability you should copy them and launch the application with /c key: http://www.xnotestopwatch.com/help/command_line.htm

Yes, it works as a stand alone programme, but when I try and save a "programmed" file the sounds on the menu is no longer there. That is, the alarms within the timer are not present.

But it is exactly what I was looking for!!!!
