How to make a Timed Tag Zone | Difficulty 1/10

Hi! I’ve seen a few questions for this, and I’ve seen answers. I’ve decided to make this guide to make the answer to that ^ question easier to find! Credit to @Alan_Shen for this guide.

Same thing as Property 1, Just is called TagTimeTeam2

Wiring

Ok, now this is going to get crazy…

Lifecycle to Relay 1: Event Occurs → Trigger Relay

Trigger 1 → Relay 2: Triggered → Trigger Relay
Trigger 1 → Relay 3: Triggered → Trigger Relay

Repeater 1 → Counter 1: Runs Task → Decrement Counter

Counter 1 → Repeater 1: Target Value Reached → Stop Repeater
Counter 1 → Overlay 1: Target Value Reached → Hide Overlay
Counter 1 → Overlay 2: Target Value Reached → Hide Overlay
Counter 1 → Wire Repeater(#1): Target Value Reached → Pulse
Wire Repeater(#1) → Counter 1: Receives Pulse → Reset Counter
Counter 1 → Trigger 3: Target Value Reached → Trigger

Property 1 → Relay 2: Property Value Changed → Trigger Relay
Property 1 → Relay 3: Property Value Changed → Trigger Relay


Trigger 3 → Relay 4: Triggered → Trigger Relay
Trigger 3 → Relay 5: Triggered → Trigger Relay

Repeater 2 → Counter 2: Runs Task → Decrement Counter

Counter 2 → Repeater 2: Target Value Reached → Stop Repeater
Counter 2 → Overlay 3: Target Value Reached → Hide Overlay
Counter 2 → Overlay 4: Target Value Reached → Hide Overlay
Counter 2 → Wire Repeater(#2): Target Value Reached → Pulse
Wire Repeater(#2) → Counter 2: Receives Pulse → Reset Counter
Counter 2 → Trigger 1: Target Value Reached → Trigger

Property 2 → Relay 4: Property Value Changed → Trigger Relay
Property 2 → Relay 5: Property Value Changed → Trigger Relay

FINALLY!!! That’s all the Wiring!

Now, place Tag Zone 1 on Tag Zone 2, so that they completely overlap!

When I tried this guide I ran into a few problems…

  1. Tagging doesn’t work at all within the tag zones
  2. The timers that tell you to run away or tag decrement by factors of 2, and then they go into the negatives. One team has a constantly blinking and decreasing run away overlay, and the other team has a constantly blinking tag overlay.

Also, I’m not sure if this is a typo or not, but in the block of the fourth overlay the property is listed as “TagTime2”… is this supposed to be “TagTimeTeam2”

Anyway, these problems are probably user error on my part, but any help would be appreciated.

Is your game set to two different teams?
