As far as I know, you have to set the time limit with the -time switch in your conf file. sorta like:

Code: Select all

-time 1800
and then use the /countdown command from a client. You can give arguments with /countdown such as:

Code: Select all

/countdown 15


which counts down from 15 instead of 10 (the default) before a match.
