Show penalty for "jumping the gun" by more than the allowed time

Reported by: joerg Owned by: joerg
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: FsComp Version: 2015 R1
Keywords: Cc:


Referring to the Jump the Gun rules in the GAP documentation: In FS the result of penalty is shown in red if the condition in the second sentence of the second paragraph applies ("For each X seconds a pilot starts early, he incurs a 1 point penalty, up to a maximum of Y seconds."). But if the condition in the third sentence applies to the results, it is not shown in red ("If a pilot starts more than Y seconds early, he will only be scored for minimum distance.").

Also the penalties are not shown under the penalties section of the results for this condition.

Related bug: If "jump the gun" is active, and if distance between launch and SSS is more than minimum distance, all pilots who flew further than minimum distance but did not reach SSS are only scored for minimum distance.

Reason for all this: By the time we handle "jump the gun" we can't distinguish between a pilot who started too early (more than allowed by jump_the_gun_max) and a pilot who didn't reach the start cylinder at all. Changing this is a bigger operation. This will also need to consider that in competitions where "jump the gun" is inactive (e.g. all PG comps), starting too early does not automatically give a pilot minimum distance: He scores exactly the distance from launch to SSS, which may be more than minimum distance.
