Custom map problem? why is this happening



  • ok so this is my dilemma,

    I test 2 custom ffa maps one at a time and get the same result.

    the name is 1st in the map list and in command line, I start the server and it shows up right and lets me join the custom map fine, same thing with both maps, ffa met arena and ffa lava arena

    however when I throw them in my full normal map list, when it should be next in rotation it skips right past them like they weren’t there.

    how does this make any sense?

    they work fine on a solo test online but not when in a map rotation,
    I have deleted the folder/files for both of them and re downloaded and reinstalled them on the server and retested but get the same result.

    I even got the creator of met arena to update his map yesterday and it still happens.

    any ideas why this is happening?

    thanks

    Can you post the server config?

    Can you also log into the server as a client, do the GetServerRotation command in the console, and post the results?



  • **thanks soup,

    GetServerRotation

    **gives me this map list, but shows the 2 custom maps at the end of it,

    Maplist=AOCFFA-Arena3_P
    Maplist=AOCTO-Stoneshill_P
    Maplist=AOCFFA-Darkforest_Cistern_p
    Maplist=AOCFFA-Moor_P
    Maplist=AOCTO-Battlegrounds_v3_P
    Maplist=AOCFFA-Darkforest_Cistern_p
    Maplist=AOCFFA-Hillside_P
    Maplist=AOCFFA-HillsidePyre_P
    ===>Maplist=AOCTO-Darkforest_p
    Maplist=AOCFFA-Ruins_P
    Maplist=AOCFFA-Darkforest_Cistern_p
    Maplist=AOCFFA-Darkforest_Valley_p
    Maplist=AOCFFA-ThroneRoomXL_P
    Maplist=AOCFFA-Darkforest_Cistern_p
    Maplist=AOCKOTH-Hillside_P
    Maplist=AOCFFA-MetArena_p
    Maplist=AOCFFA-LavaArena_p

    yet the only 2 in the that I have set to play in my map list is:

    Maplist=AOCFFA-MetArena_p
    Maplist=AOCFFA-LavaArena_p

    and
    im not sure which config are you talking about?


  • Developer

    The one with the map list, PCServer-UDKGame.ini

    Unless you’re using a control panel to set this up?



  • thought so just making sure,

    here you go,
    I did remove my password.


  • Developer

    Oh, ohhh, crap. I bet I know that this is. Blergh.<br /><br />1. Delete UDKGame/CookedSDK/<Your mod’s name>_<GUID>/<YourMod’sName>.ini<br />2. Restart the server



  • I will give that a try thanks soup :)

    EDIT…

    ok that seemed to work when just those 2 are in rotation, its playing both of them only.

    ill throw the whole maplist in and test that to be sure.

    thank you very much for your help Soup, you rock!

    EDIT…
    ok ive tested them with the full map rotation and it plays arena3 1st cause that’s whats in my command line and map list, but then it just plays those 2 custom maps over and over, so its really is confusing as why this is happening lol

    EDIT…

    ok I have gotten it to work as normal, thank you for your help Soup much appreciated :)

    it turns out that whatever map list you want to run is what you have to have set when you install a mod I guess.

    anyway it works now and maybe this will help others in the future.
