    Exclamation BF4 - server seems to ignore vars.roundLockdownCountdown

    Hello guys.
    There is always a problem when the map is loaded and players begun to play. I talk about the problem, when some players loading faster than the others, is there any way to freeze the battle for some seconds, like 30 seconds? And when these seconds are gone, let the fight begin.
    I was trying to setup Lockdown Countdown, but I don't see any effect after use it.

    Did you read the documentation?

    There is also a discussion about that going on here somewhere and/or in the fpsadmin forum.

    The line in my Startup.txt:
    vars.roundLockdownCountdown 30
    It doesn't work, don't know why.

    What type and preset is your BF4 server running?
    It's thinkable that you can't override it while official and/or that it is overwritten by a preset.

    Is anyone else have tested here roundLockdownCountdown variable?
    I'm asking, because now I'm started to argue with support, about aptitude of this variable.

    tested on official/normal server. Didnt work, not going to try again until after today's patch. It is quite important as rush and obliteration games can get off to a bad start if more players on one team have SSDs

    Okay so when I set it to 30 on a Ranked Normal server it does work but the countdown starts during the intermission or map loading so even with my SSD I only sometimes see the end of the countdown (about 3-5 seconds). If I try to set it higher than 30 then the Ranked normal preset forces it to 30.

    Any ideas on this? Would be nice on rush, sometimes the first A + B bombs are already planted before the half of the team is loaded.
