I was playing around with VRC Hub and found two potential problems.
Scoring 7 goals?!?!
One issue was the fact that one alliance can score 7 goals total.
This got briefly brought up here, but I discovered the issue independently.
The app automatically limits the amount of goals scored on a platform or in a home zone to 5 which is great. The app also automatically limits the total amount of goals scored to 7 which is great. But you can score 5 goals on a platform and then 2 more in your alliance zone (or any other such combination), which shouldn’t be possible.
There is really only one possible use for this, which is the scoring for the LRT format of Tipping Point. In this format, alliance goals are treated as neutral, so the possibility of scoring 7 goals exists. However the incredible divergence between LRT scoring and normal scoring is so dramatic that this feature is useless in the current version of VRC Hub.
This is a pretty minor issue as long as everyone knows how to score Tipping Point, but if someone believes that all the goals can count for points for either alliance, this could prove somewhat problematic.
Reset Button doesn't reset everything?
Second issue is the fact that the trash button or reset button or whatever, does not reset the autonomous buttons, or the elevated robot buttons. The reset button still sets the score to zero, but these buttons remain in their positions. This could be especially problematic for referees scoring an event with back-to-back matches.
Example: A match is scored with the blue alliance winning the autonomous bonus, and the red alliance having one elevated robot.
After pushing the reset button, the score goes to zero, but blue alliance has technically still “won” the autonomous bonus, and red alliance still has an elevated robot.
The next match, red wins auton so the referee presses the red alliance button to signify they won autonomous. Instead of them getting a 20 point bonus, both alliances get a 10 point bonus for tying auton. The red alliance also elevated a robot at the end of the match, so the referee presses the elevated robot button to give them credit for that.
As we can see, blue gets 10 points they didn’t earn, red loses 10 points they should have gotten from auton, and red gets an extra 30 points they didn’t earn. In reality, the score should be 50-0 in favor of red.
It’s a bit tough to follow, but go try it if you need to.
Sorry if I missed these being brought up elsewhere (or if I made some other mistake). They aren’t major issues, but still have the potential to be problematic.
