    I'm new to map editing and have searched google and this site to no avail.

    • What variable do I change to reduce or increase the setup time of my maps?
    • What variable is used for changing the time players are frozen at the start of each round

    Thanks in advance.

    1: on the team_round_timer there is a Setup Time option.
    2: that's just part of the game.

    It's always six seconds, by the way.

    Thanks for the replies. I was pretty sure there was a variable to modify those six seconds. I had link to the instructions but forgot to save it when I rebuilt my system. If anyone else can remember what it is that would be super.

    New problem. Can't get my setup timer to count down. I have team_round_timer - Setup timer length set to 25 seconds. Start Disabled no. not sure what else you need to help me but just let me know.

    Thanks.

    Start disabled is set to no but start paused was yes. It's working now.
    Thank you :)

    On ctf_2Fort and another map I don't remember there is no 6 second wait time. I could vmex it and figure out what variable they used but if anyone knows how it was done on that would be much easier :)

    Thanks.

    Must have been a server plugin, but no. There is nothing a map can do about it.

    Thanks for the response Icarus but I find whether it's my server or another 2Fort is always like that.

    What if there was no setup time? Would that work?

    I tried removing setup time that didn't work. How do you get rid of waiting for players time?

    Thanks again.

    Got it. Running without a setup timer on my server makes the map start without the 6 second delay!
