Jump the Gun wrong

Reported by: hectorzoia@… Owned by: somebody
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: FsComp Version: 1.1.6
Keywords: Jump the Gun Cc:


Hi We tried to Jump the Gun, 2 pilots who have crossed the Start 2 minuts before departure time (14.30)

But not by penalising them for making Jump the Gun, only gives the minimum distance

Pilots are No.: 17 Pablo Kuniss, and 330 Victor Lebon.

It works, not easy to use :-)

If you hower the mouse over the leading text for the field in the task setting window you should see an explanation on how to use it.

The main point being that it is a difference between open/close times of a turnpoint and a startgate.

The open/close times is absolut regardless of scoringformula settings. No tracklogpoints outside the open/close time for a turnpoint is considered.

In order for Jump the gun to work the (first) startgate for the SS turnpoint must be sometime after the open time for the SS turnpoint.

The normal thing to do would be to use the same open time for the SS turnpoint as for the previous turnpoint, then have the first startgate at the desired start-time giving pilots a chance to launch and get into position ...

So, in your particular case, change the open time for tp 2 to 13:20, set Jump the gun to 5, and recheck the task.
