Been trying to update the server and have evil bot use 30 minute maps as default but something must have went horribly wrong. Three server crashes in one night. Something is NOT right so on Monday I will be re-building the venge server.

Who was betting out there that I would ask for help today? Anyone? You get a cookie.

Ok, it is now installed and back to basic. I've gotten to PR3 Venge with Evil bot installed. All default pretty much except 3 map names. I installed the BIG FAT MAP PAK from OTC. (So I finnally got Gagetown and New Gotham working now after all these years) But the bot doesn't know what it is talking about...

In my Map Cycle I got this:
Quote:
[Mapcycle]
Mode=1
Interval=120
CountDownInterval=60
CountDownExtra=30,15,10,5,3,2,1
TournamentMode=False
RandomizeMode=False

PlayersMaxTonnageRandomizer=100,100,100,100,100,100,75,55
TeamsTonnageLimitRandomizer=300,350,400,400,400,450,500,550
TeamsCbillsLimitRandomizer=
MapList=BigCity Attrition,BigCity Dodgeball

[BigCity Attrition]
Type=Attrition
Name=BigCity Attrition
TimeLimit=15

[BigCity Dodgeball]
Type=Attrition
Name=BigCity Dodgeball
TimeLimit=15



I named my map files in NFO BigCity Dodgeball and another BigCity Attrition. But bot just loads the dball map and it gets stuck there. It says it is changing maps but nothing happens. I've also tried on the list "Coliseum Attrition" and "CPark Attrition" Again, evil bot says these maps are being loaded but nothing happens. If I try to force it to use these maps... it crashes the server. I can throw some maps in the server cycle and turn that on and it works. Bot still rambles on and says "Next map CPark" and it really isn't... Can anyone point me in the right direction? Perhaps a how to video or website? All the evil bot pages I've been looking at are years old and no longer work. lipsrsealed

cool

Ok folks, *big grin* I've done something I wanted to do for years. Give you the ability to run the server if I'm not there. Now an admin (or by vote but that is in the works) can change maps to anything they want. Providing that I've thought ahead and put it in the list. I've got about 70% of the old maps we use to play in there and the rest I'll make up in the coming week. I do have a whole host of NEW maps in there that has never seen the light of day in the Dining Room. New Gothem and Gagetown are now up!

So far I have added Every NORMAL map (offical) and had it set to both Attrition and TEAM. The TIME works 100% right now giving you 15 minute Attrition rounds and 30 minute TEAM Attrition rounds. In theory this will work for CTF as well and yes kids, you can change that at will if I am not there. So that means you Friday folks now have another place to hang out! Or anytime for that matter. I haven't gotten around to adding all the other bells and whistles that made the WPPC server its own. -dball -br and such and the taunts the maitre d does are not in there yet. I'll get to those tomorrow. But for now, this works and it rawks.

Admin? Well you'll have to connect with the name you want to admin and just say something to me in the server. I expect all WPPCers to connect BEFORE Wednesday night. Just so if your early you can play with your new powers. Non WPPC admins, sure. You know who you are. And if you don't then for shame on you... lol. I'll admin you again. I'll just get you next time you connect though.


So have fun guys. I'm srsly like 80% done with what I wanted to do now. The hard stuff is over. I hope you enjoy the new server and lets cross our fingers that this one doesn't crash...

cool rolleyes

Almost forgot. You guys probably are wondering, "how do I change map?" Well the names are below here. I'll post my whole map list so you can match what they are named (thats what you type) and what you GET (mission style) Now that I know how to do this right I can add more maps as we go on each week.

Enjoy!

The Polecat asked if admin means that the Chicken can be kicked at will. Sounds like a good idea to me. I might even let ol' smelly out of his box once in a while. grin

I'm working on it. Server 2.0 doesn't like bots in CTF and Bacon games. Pity. Old server didn't care. Ahh well, this server knows best. Maps are still vote-able but will not show up in main cycle. Also thinking of keeping it on RANDOM MAP rather than sequential.

Anywho, I'm tweaking the thing right now. Expect many starts and stops.

Ok, it is about 4am and I'm spent. There are still some problems with the server but nothing too serious. So I'll start with the good news.

Maps work for the most part. Bot knows what it is talking about concerning map names. All of Maitre D's (evil bots) commands have been imported from the other server. Feels like home now. TA games are all 30 minutes and all ATT games are 15. YAY.


ok now the bad:
The RANDOMIZE setting doesn't work. It gives me that blade error. (odd). our Autobots work fine on every normal map they are suppose to be on... CTF games though makes the server want to crash and then evil bot forgets what map name is what and temporally goes bananas. To fix the previous problem I have removed autobots from the server until I can figure out a way for people to have targets to shoot while waiting of other players. Otherwise it is going to be lonely in there.. So bring a friend... and post in the shout box or in the Venge Lounge Area to try to drum up some players.

So far I think that is it though. This has been a lot of work and I hope to never do it again... lol. It will all pay off though if you guys enjoy it.
