Countdown Timer display

I was wondering is there a way to change the timer display to look different. I want to do a timer for 3 minutes. Right now I can only get it to display if I put it in as 180 seconds. So it counts down from 180 seconds. I would like it to looke like this 3:00 and start to count down.

    Hi @SanOrck here's an amended file from another member giving you the principle for making minutes and seconds as countdown. Hope it helps.

    I have the timer from the file. How do I stop the timer from automatically starting. It starts as soon as you get to the scene.
