[EFT] Count Last Second Goals



  • If someone throws the ball at the goal with only a few seconds left on the clock, the victory/tie message will pop up before the ball goes through/into the goal. I would like to see these last second goals factored into the final score. The teams that score these last second goals usually feel like they’ve won, and I think it is time for the game to match what most people are thinking.

    Once the timer reaches zero, how about adding a five second delay until the final score is decided? The victory/tie message can be displayed after the delay. I think five seconds will give plenty of time for these goals to be counted.

  • How would that be any different than just having each game be 20:05 long? Unless of course, this only triggers if the ball was thrown by somebody prior to the game ending.



  • It would be different than a 20:05 long game; you would still have the issue I described with any game length. There are two major things that happen right when the timer hits zero:

    1. Play stops and everyone is frozen in place.
    2. The final score is tallied and the victory/tie screen is immediately displayed.

    Basically, I want there to be five seconds between these two events. I want the final score to be tallied five seconds after the timer reaches zero. In those five seconds, everyone is frozen in place; however, the ball could still be traveling towards the goal. Does that make sense?



  • Sounds pretty good. Doesn’t happen all the time, but when it does, it’s really cool. I’d love to see these start counting in the games.



  • The problem with that is the score is counted after the round resets so the gamemode would have to be re-coded so that the score changes immediately when the ball hits the trigger…

    It probably is possible but things might get broken.
