I got a private message that the server is stuck on minas. Apparently it has been like this since last night.

I am stuck at work all day (I'm on my focking lunch break). So when I will get home tonight I will fix it.

Sorry, it is not easy changing maps when
A) I have to find maps that work with omnibot
B) maps have to be fun
C) maps have to be small
D) maps have to be checked against other sites to make sure they are not bad size altered maps

I found three separate size versions of rommel_final, for example, each from a different download website. If a player has a different size map on his computer than the one running on the server, they would get kicked for a "pk3 error". Now multiply this problem by several hundred ET maps, a million players, and a hundred download sites.

Then the maps have to be uploaded to the server, and the redirect server, and if the map is already there it is checked for its size. If it is a bad size map it is retired since players will have the wrong copy. Then the mapcycle configs have to be updated so each map points to each other.

Then this has to be done on other servers too. I have four servers at the moment.

I have to do all this when I get home from work, in a house full of other people. I would rather change mapcycles on a Saturday afternoon, when I have more time, but that is when everyone is on the server actually playing, so I usually do it on Wednesday or Thursday night when it is relatively empty.

Sorry for the problem.

Just an FYI. sunny was on beginner server @ 2100 hrs and it is indeed stuck on Minas and my !next command only restarts the map instead of going to the next. It was also totally lagged out when i was on. geek cherry drunken cheers cyclops

I went through all the configs on Beginner last night and I had a typo in the Minas map config file. So it was not assigning the nextmap properly. It should be OK now.

The lag is probably from all the stuff running: omnibots, enhanced mod, qagame mods, extra weapon skins, voicepacks, etc etc. Also, Minas is a big, feature-rich map so it uses a lot of server resources.

I've been seeing some lag with the redirect server the past week, sometimes it slows down to 50 kb/sec (usually it is over 300).

... just a comment... Slide... takes 30 seconds to do, bots or not... boring, seriously... no challenge, no fight, bots are going their own side, so they never face the other team... and people always speed it up, so it is no useful. {BEGINNER TALKING}
