This plugin is super simple. I don't know if it deserves a "new submission entry" or if it was already made but, i found it useful for my server so here it goes.

It changes the game description to display the timeleft. I find it useful because there are users that don't like some maps, so this way they easily know the timeleft.

(Sorry leonidas for not being able to add it a abuse feature)


Changelog
1.1
Added cvars "gameDescription_pre" and "gameDescription_post" to define text to surround the timeleft info.

Added nextmap info when timeleft < 1 minute

Fix

1.2
LANG_SERVER fix

Is there a limit for how long the description can be? You can just add 'TL: blah' to the original one if there are no limitations for the lenght of the string.

I need to test it out. But in the favorites tab inside the game it will probably make the timeleft part to be hidden, with the default layout. Tell me if i was not clear.

Why dont you expand the plugin, make it more customizeable and give users options what they want to put in the game desc space or hostname

I like it how it is. Simple and doing a useful job. From that post you linked, the only useful thing is the nextmap, and to be shown just when timeleft < 2 minutes.
