A problem that CTF has is that the capture flag spawns prior to the capture teammates. If the enemy is camping on the flag site, you could be in an endless loop of always chasing your flag. Therefore I would like to have the teammate spawn 1st before the flag spawn so that the teammate may frag any enemy sitting at your flag site.

Any hints where the flag spawn time is?

If there is not flag spawn time...is there a tank spawn time that I could change?

dunno its either a) coded in the tm.exe b)the map or c) there is a line in the ent\flags\teamflagx.ent dropflag = 30 that might do something for respawn time (since there is no readme for the flags folder a person would just have to fiddle about, some parameters look interesting though, flag carrierarmor)

dropflag is use to indicate how long (in seconds) before the flag automatically returns to its spawn point when it gets dropped.

AFAIK, there is no way to alter the length of time for a tank or flag to respawn.

You can always chain a spewer to it to knock away enemy tanks for a period of time.
