Output format validation

To make sure that Scoreboard OCR uses time delimiters and does not output invalid match time, we have introduced format validation

Validation formatExample outputUse case
CustomNumberThere is no validation, this is the default format. Use this for team score, fouls, etc
Time (mm:ss)5:13When capturing match time or penalty time, that never goes into 1/10 of a second
Time (mm:ss, ss.d)12:45, 45.9When capturing match time, that might display 1/10 of a second during the last minute of the match (usually basketball)
Time (hh:mm:ss.d)12:05:13.4When capturing athletics or swimming clock
Shot clock (ss)19When capturing shot clock that does not go into 1/10 a second for basketball
