    Hello all,

    My payload project is coming along great. However there are 2 issues with it that no matter what i cannot find a solution too.

    1. Scoring Bug.... There is a weird scoring bur where a player on the cart pushing team gains a constant flow of points the next round on defense. Basically i "believe" that if a player is the one to cap the cart on the next round when he is playing defense he gains 2 points every couple of seconds even if he is standing still doing nothing.


    2. "The cart has almost reached the final point" The lady making this announcement will not shut up! lol i have 4 points, a,b,c, and d.

    Once the cart caps point c she starts saying that message and will not shut up. Only the defending team hears this constant nagging message though.


    Any help would be great.

    Thanks
    Excal

    1. nothing you can do about it, occasionally happens on all payload maps if I remember right.

    2. not sure... do you have the watcher set up properly? It's what handles those announcements.

    Thank you for the response boojum. What exactly would i need to look at in the watcher. I looked at it last night and did not see anything that jumped out at me.

    He forgot to mention that he is using your gameplay setup for a single stage payload and I put all of the entities in there and made everything to accompany them so i wouldn't have to change anything but the spawn times and such small things like that.

    So the train watcher was not touched at all and if it is initially setup correct then there shouldn't be anything wrong with it. The blue side hears it fine. when it gets within a certain range of the last cap the announcer says "The cart has almost reached the final terminus! Ah HA! Hahaha!" and any of the other random ones. But when Blu caps point C, from there all the way to when it actually reaches the last point, whenever someone touches the cart from the blu team, red hears, "The cart has almost reached the final point." Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and.. well I think you get the point. I just find it weird that it would do it for one team and not the other... ya know?

    Boojum! Here I'll post what the settings for the watcher are and let me know if there is anything messed up. It's a gif that'll switch between the 3 windows every 7.5 seconds, so be patient. Lol

    Whoops, uhh. I don't really know why it's doing that, I've never heard of such a problem.
