Intervelometer on SX30 1.00L

I've downloaded and installed CHDK for my SX30 firmware version 1.00L primarily for the purpose of taking time lapses (as I previously did on my Powershot A710) but can't seem to find any scripts for the intervelometer. Can anyone help?

Thanks.

Did you try the search function in the wiki ?  CHDK Wiki

Yeah, so far not had any luck. The other CHDK menus are the same on both my A710 and SX30 but the SX30 firmware seems to have really limited options under 'scripts'. I've been searching for ages and have found timelpses other people have taken with their SX30's but I just can't work out how.

You seem to be a little confused about the concept of scripts.  Scripts are software programs - they are stored in normal text files and contain program instruction in either Lua or uBasic.  You find them online on the wiki or forum (or write them yourself) and then copy them to your SD card.  Select one that does what you want and copy it over.   A normal CHDK install will only have a few simple test scripts - you need to find the "good stuff" (intervelometer,  HDR, motion detection etc) online and load it up.

Thanks. I just copied the scripts over from my previous version of CHDK and they work on my SX30.
