Setting a map specific time limit doesn't work if the time limit is set to 0 in svrcfg_cnc.ini (i.e. if the server is a marathon one), because the time limit is 0. If you change the time remaining (with TIME) the time will run out but it won't gameover the map, if you use TIMEL to change the time limit to anything but 0 it will gameover.

So BRenBot needs to add some special exceptions to the map specific config stuff if the time limit is set to 0 in svrcfg_cnc.ini.

Isn't the whole point of a marathon server not to have time limits? I don't tend to play in such servers because they always seem to result in a stalemate so maybe I am missing something?

Just asking because it seems an odd thing to do.

Well actually, I wanted to put a map(s) in with a time limit mixed in with the marathon maps, but I can't.

Well I could look into adding special case logic in the bot for that but since you say it actually starts the time in the game but doesn't end the game when the time runs out that could actually be a candidate for an improvement in the server code itself, maybe see what jonwil thinks about it.

In theory if the time remaining was >0 and becomes 0 due to counting down on it's own the game should end regardless of what the actual time limit is set to.

Yeah that's true but from the looks of it the sole thing keeping the map from gameovering with no time remaining is the time limit being set to zero.

what you can do instead of making it zero make it a to huge to ever end number like 999999999999999999999999999999999999999 which will also work to make it almost endless and if needed you could make something that auto sets time after a certain time (like every hour

I wonder what happens if you set the time limit to a non zero value and then set the time remaining to 0 for the marathon maps...

it'll cause the map to gameover when the timer reaches zero.

But it wouldn't 'reach' zero, it would be 'set' to zero... There might be a difference

neh i tested that if time remaining is set to zero and time limit isn't zero it'll gameover immediately.
