Map List Rotation - Fail?



  • Hi Folks…

    Now ive had a look around - but none of the things I have seen answer the problem I have…

    Basically, I CANNOT change the map rotation - no matter what I edit, the server appears to default to the standard map rotation…

    What I Wanted:

    ;Team Objective
    Maplist[0]=AOCTO-Battlegrounds_v3_P
    Maplist[1]=AOCTO-Darkforest_P
    Maplist[2]=AOCTO-Hillside_P
    Maplist[3]=AOCTO-Stoneshill_P
    
    ;Team Deathmatch
    Maplist[4]=AOCTD-Moor_p
    Maplist[5]=AOCTD-Ruins_P
    Maplist[6]=AOCTD-StoneshillVillage_P
    Maplist[7]=AOCTD-ThroneRoom_P
    Maplist[8]=AOCTD-Hillside_P
    Maplist[9]=AOCTD-HillsidePyre_P
    Maplist[10]=AOCTD-Darkforest_Valley_p
    Maplist[11]=AOCTD-Battlegrounds_p
    Maplist[12]=AOCTD-Darkforest_XL_p
    Maplist[13]=AOCTD-Moor_Large_p
    Maplist[14]=AOCTD-Ruins_Large_P
    ```I've edited:
    PCServer-UDKGame.ini - under [AOC.AOCGame] ive removed the MapList that was there (ironically theres no [0], [1] etc. in the default?)
    So mine reads:
    
    

    Maplist=AOCTO-Battlegrounds_v3_P
    Maplist=AOCTO-Darkforest_P
    Maplist=AOCTO-Hillside_P
    Maplist=AOCTO-Stoneshill_P
    Maplist=AOCTD-Moor_p
    Maplist=AOCTD-Ruins_P
    Maplist=AOCTD-StoneshillVillage_P
    Maplist=AOCTD-ThroneRoom_P
    Maplist=AOCTD-Hillside_P
    Maplist=AOCTD-HillsidePyre_P
    Maplist=AOCTD-Darkforest_Valley_p
    Maplist=AOCTD-Battlegrounds_p
    Maplist=AOCTD-Darkforest_XL_p
    Maplist=AOCTD-Moor_Large_p
    Maplist=AOCTD-Ruins_Large_P

    I've also put this in DefaultGame.ini (as above) with AND without the [] numbers after "MapList"
    
    I'm getting rather annoyed… I don't see the problem - I'm guessing something is wrong?
    
    Server Specs: Headless WinServer 2k8 install (x64)
    i5, 4GB DDR3,
    
    (Server has never run the game.. but that shouldn't matter) using the Server files downloaded through steam-> Tools)
    
    Any help MUCH appreciated :)

    Edit: I'm probably the only person who launches with a bat script too?
    
    

    @Echo Off
    UDKLogging.exe AOCTO-Battlegrounds_v3_P?-dedicated=true -seekfreeloadingserver



  • I know this may seem dumb, but make sure you restart the server. I had an issue with (upon every restart) the server would default back to a map that I took out of the maplist. Contacted my server provider, they had to put in a server command themselves and change the default maplist.

    The maplist that matters is in the PCServer-UDKGame.ini

    Ctrl+F search for Maplist and change those maps.



  • Hi mate

    I’ve been killing the server and restarting it after each config change… yet no matter what I Do I always end up with FFA / KOTH etc. listed, when I don’t want them.

    Any ideas?

    Matt

    edit: there was duplication in my .ini so I’ve removed it and hopefully its fixed… although I do not know where that came from… Fingers crossed.



  • Did you also edit the DefaultGame.ini? Just a thought.



  • looks like launch script error:

    try```
    @Echo Off
    UDKLogging.exe AOCTO-Battlegrounds_v3_P?steamsockets -dedicated=true -seekfreeloadingserver

    be very carefull about SPACES between options ;)
    
    fyi, mine is :
    
    

    UDKGame.exe AOCFFA-Arena3_P?steamsockets?MaxPlayers=24 -dedicated=true -seekfreeloadingserver -Port=7717 -QueryPort=27115



  • Howdy Doody :)

    Think I’ve got it sorted, the launch script has not changed btw ;)

    Also, I have had better stability since removing the Max Players from my launch script and relying on the ini value (idk why… but I have?)

    TO/TDM now works … issue was (idk WHEN) but id got two separate MapLists listed in the PCServer-UDKEngine.ini … Long ini = fail ;)

    Regards
