If your passenger gets knocked off, you don't have the flag as driver  O:-)

The code counts the time the flag runner was on the manta and also the time for the entire flag run. It gives each driver a proportion of the 15 points for the time they were assisting:  15 / (driver assist time / flag run time)

So technically you can get more than 15 points for the same flag run with the changes, which was my whole point of that beeing kinda unfair.

Well, as I always say (when the code is provided)...if someone wants to spend the time and effort making it better I'll consider any submissions.

The strange thing is....I can't remember anyone other than @Holyspam ever taking me up on the offer. Guess what? His code is running...

It would be a lot easier of you open source it and accept pull requests, since it's kinda unexpected to make changes on a code that you don't know/see without the ability to test it yourself at all.
It this case my suggestion would be a simple maximizing that a singe flag score can't exceed 15 points.

Thank you.

Yes. That makes perfect sense.

One small correction:

Code: [Select]
LastHolderPRI = CTFFlag(Owner).Holder.PlayerReplicationInfo;
The Holder is the pawn that's holding the flag. We need its PRI.
