I use the "SpecialWarn" message to let me know if it's working.

PHP Code:
if(iCompanionCount && iBotCount iPlayerCount 1)
{
    
flPlayerAloneStartTime[iPlayerIndex] = GetEngineTime();
    
bMsg[iPlayerIndex] = true;
}

else
{
    if(
bMsg[iPlayerIndex] && bIsValidClient(iPlayerIndex))
        
PrintHintText(iPlayerIndex"[ASS] %t""SpecialWarn");
    
bMsg[iPlayerIndex] = false;

When I use CreateTimer(cvPunishDetectionDelay.FloatValue, the message doesn't pop up when I pass the distance limit. When I use CreateTimer(0.1 the message appears.

This is all the relevant code for the ConVar:
PHP Code:
ConVar cvPunishDetectionDelay;

public 
void OnPluginStart()
{
     
cvPunishDetectionDelay CreateConVar("asspunish_detectiondelay""0.1""The Punishment system will check for Speedrunners every time this many seconds pass.\n(0 or X < 1: OFF)\n(X: ON, seconds allowed.)"
}

public 
void OnMapStart()
{
     if(
cvPunishDetectionDelay.IntValue != 0)
          
hPunishTimer CreateTimer(cvPunishDetectionDelay.FloatValueaAutoTimerUpdatePlayer_TIMER_REPEAT);

hPunishTimer CreateTimer(cvPunishDetectionDelay.FloatValueaAutoTimerUpdatePlayer_TIMER_REPEAT);

if(cvPunishDetectionDelay.IntValue != 0) <-- maybe this is where it's wrong LOL

try

if(cvPunishDetectionDelay.FloatValue != 0.0

maybe IntValue automatically round down to 0

I started thinking that too when I posted the code here. I'll try this out. XD

Nope, that didn't fix it. Anything less than 1 still rounds off to 0. I guess that answers my question about .FloatValues.

This is weird... (O_o)?

cvPunishDetectionDelay = CreateConVar("asspunish_detectiondelay", "0.1", "The Punishment system will check for Speedrunners every time this many seconds pass.\n(0 or X < 1: OFF)\n(X: ON, seconds allowed.)";

no you are probably doing something wrong

i was just looking through one of my old plugins and i was creating 0.0 timer and the timer was working

also check the following code

PHP Code:
ConVar testconvar;
public 
void OnPluginStart()
{
    
testconvar CreateConVar("sm_test_convar""0.1");
    
    
LogMessage("sm_test_convar: %f"testconvar.FloatValue);

Code:
sm_test_convar: 0.100000

Code:
sm_test_convar: 0.100000
I used TriggerTimer(hPunishTimer, true); as cravenge suggested and it worked.

That's just part of the description for the cvar, it doesn't affect how the timer works. I only put that in at the time because I didn't know about the void TriggerTimer(Handle timer, bool reset) function. xD Thanks btw!

Here's the final solution:

PHP Code:
if(cvPunishDetectionDelay.IntValue != 0.0)
{
    
hPunishTimer CreateTimer(cvPunishDetectionDelay.FloatValuetAutoTimerUpdatePlayer_TIMER_REPEAT);
    
TriggerTimer(hPunishTimertrue);

glad it worked out for your
also glad i learned something new
didn't even know about TriggerTimer
