Respawn delay annoyed when Game starting (also when Join In Progress?)
New, NormalPublic

Description

When we start a game with a Respawn Delay, all players have to wait before start the game uselessly.
I supposed sentence is the same for Join In Progress players.

Steps To Reproduce

In Multiplayer / Attributes (sorry if approximate names, my game is in French), Respawn part :
Place a playable unit
RespawnTemplates -> check only: MenuPosition
RespawnDelay = 00:10:00 (if you are not patient, put 00:00:10 ;) )

Additional Information

To avoid this waiting time, I put in [initPlayerLocal.sqf]:

/*

*/

[] spawn {
	//Intantaneous Respawn at Join In Progress
	waitUntil{lbSize (findDisplay 12 displayCtrl 88808) != 0};//in multiplayer this code is not always functional to avoid player to push [Repawn] button.
	setPlayerRespawnTime -1;
	
	//If we wish to interact with player unit at starting game, we need to wait several times, just like this example :
	waitUntil{playerRespawnTime==-1};
	waitUntil{player == player};
	player setDir (switch side player do{
		case west: {0};
		case east: {180};
		case independent: {90};
		default {270};
	});
};
