Not sure was this mention before. But today when I join a game, some dude was saying "3, 2, 1". And I was like "huh?" and he said "0", and game ended while there is like 18 minutes left in game on my screen [xx(]

Pretty sure this is not cause by lag, since I have decent connection there, actually it was n00bface's server. So I get like

no. it's a bug in my server..when you do /timelimit 10 when the timelimit in soldat.ini is set to 20, the game still says it is 20 except for the person that did /timelimit..

so one /timelimit guy's screen it would be like

"Time Left: 3 seconds"

and on everyone elses screen it would be

"Time Left: 10 minutes"

kind of annoying...

Yea, Soldat's timing system has always been pretty dodgy at best...

Heavily affected by lag, sometimes by an un-clean join, and all sorts.

It's usually only accurate to around 5-10 seconds even when it's working 'properly' :P
