Custom Maps Causing Server To Disappear

Post by Skirge » Wed Sep 18, 2013 5:55 pm

This has had me baffled for days, wanted to add a map vote so I could use DM & CTF game types on my server, with Custom DM & CTF versions of Morpheus.

The issue is once you join and vote to change map it will switch map fine but the server disappears out of the server list. If you have the server ip you can join it so it has not crashed or gone offline. Once you vote for that same map again whilst still in the map it reloads and appears in the server list again. I have tried this with standard maps and there is no issue, its purely custom maps causing it.
Removed map vote and tried it with the custom maps on rotation and the same issue happens.
Server is windows based running from batch file

I think you'll have to give more info

Installed version ?
Normal CD or Server version ?

It will probably help to pack your log files and attach to a post.

From which server list tab are you seeing the server?
If you are in a DM tab, and your server changes to CTF for example, it will disappear from the DM tab and appear at the CTF one.

No ... no sarcasm intended. I did really never heard of something similar.
Well, from a player (texture artist) point of view.
Maybe this is pretty common for a server admin.

So, you're switching gametypes?

Okay, simple way to check. Favorite your own server, and stick to your favorites tab. Unless it disappears from there, THEN you have problem.

If you have THIS in your config

[IpServer.UdpServerQuery]
GameName=ut
OldQueryPortNumber=7779
bRestartServerOnPortSwap=False


You should use the patched unrealtournament.ini (If you run a Linux server)
