I am developping a classic card game, which length is not determined by the rules (unlike Belote, where there is a target score).
So I will certainly add several possibilities in the options. Something like that:
- 4 hands
- 8 hands
- 12 hands
I would like to add a kind of "friendly mode", where players can play as long as they wish: each time a hand ends, there is a vote to continue the game or not. The game ends when any player votes "No". If all players vote "Yes", the game continues with a new hand (things like that can be seen on some other game platforms, like https://www.whistenligne.com).
For that mode, Elo does not make sense because the winner can change depending on the game end, and I think I will manually neutralize scores at the end.
Is there any way to prevent players to play that option with Elo off, in gameoptions.inc.php? Or (more unlikely) to ovveride the Elo computation system to put +0 to everyone?
Even if I neutralize player score and strongly advise not to play this with Elo on, there is still room for Elo maniacs that could use that option to boost their stats quite fast...
Thanks for your help!
