Server failing to change maps.
Strange thing happened. One of my servers I was on didn’t change maps after the end of the round. It was citadel. The game ended agatha won and we all went to a loading screen.
An endless loading screen.
I was forced to quit the game and start it back up again. I looked at the TCA and it said the server was still running fine. I get to the server browser and sure enough its there. Still on citadel. I join the game and lock a team. I can’t spawn but I can fly the camera round. There were many people in the game still stuck in the loading screens I assume as no one replied to what I said. They were slowly leaving so I admin changed map to stoneshill. By that stage only 8 very patient players remained. They were all stuck on a loading screen waiting for the server to change maps.
So yeah. I don’t know how often this happens. But I don’t want my servers getting emptied because they fail to change maps at the end of the round.
It’s been known to happen.
But it’s weird, sometimes when you get the no respawn bug you can’t even login as admin afterwards so a change map is not possible.
