Entity Description

Round Timer. Timer starts paused by default.


This point entity is exclusive to Team Fortress 2.


<int> Initial timer length. (in seconds)
  • max_length
<int> Maximum timer length (0 = no max). This value is used to ensure the timer never goes above this value when SetTime and AddTime are used. (in seconds)
  • start_paused
<boolean> Should the timer start paused? (will need to send a Resume input to start the timer if this is set).
  • setup_length
<int> Length of setup time before the round begins and the timer starts to countdown the normal time. (0 = no setup time) Setup time is run at the beginning of every round before the normal time begins. (in seconds)
  • reset_time
<boolean> Reset the timer time after a round restart. This is not the setup time, but the normal round time.
  • auto_countdown
<boolean> Let the timer automatically count down the end of a round.

  • AddTeamTime
<string> Input takes a string (space delimited) with the team number and the time to be added (in seconds) because of the team (2 for red, 3 for blue, and 0 for no team...but you could just use AddTime for that).
