    I can't find jack on this but I saw in a map.


    Also,

    wonder if anybody can help me with a round timer issue. We have a new orange server where we play orange x maps and I have made a few. Admin tells me not to set a round timer because it messes up the server timer on the Orange Server. I guess there is a bug that has made some of my health packs turn into ammo packs.

    ????

    Is it possible to just not have a Team Round Timer on the map? No need to set a time if the server is just gonna run the map with no time limit until a new map is voted for. No need to add time for capture points since there is no time limit. Can a map run without a team round timer?

    I'm fairly sure it can.

    point_clientcommand sends console commands to the client.

    EDIT: second question, both of my alphas for cp_villa lacked a Team_round Timer. I think this entity (the timer) just overides the server's settings. It's more important for Attack/Defend and Payload Maps.

    You should use point_clientcommand with a touch trigger, or something that is triggered by a player.

    Example: OnStartTouch->point_clientcommand-> Command-> parameter: Explode

    Will explode players that start touching the trigger :)

    You can go pretty far with that command :) (you could also check point_servercommand to use server commands (sv_Cheats 1 works (but should not be used!))
