Is there any console command, setting or trickery to make this happen?

As far as I know this is only possible by 'calling' this commend through a keybind or a console command: timeleft. There doesn't seem to be a native HUD item for this though – Ivo Flipse Feb 12 '11 at 20:55

I think (but not sure) this is a server or mod option as when I was trying to practice (little good it did), sometimes it was displayed in one of the top corners.

The only way I know of to do it yourself is to go in to options > keyboard, and then map a key to Time Remaining or similar. When you press this key, it displays (near chat/text) how much time is remaining.

The thing you first described is likely a server mod. I know SourceMod has the advertisements mod that can do this. – user2974 Feb 12 '11 at 21:14
