  • Sooo I broke the server tonight....

    The majority of the guys in the ready room wanted to play tanith after caged tonight... Wyz afk'd... so I was all, "Yay, I got changelevel.."

    sh_changelevel ns2_tanith......

    File Not Found...

    Server down till Wyz comes back.

    Sorry to those involved.

    And, can we get a work around for this... or test all the maps on the server to make sure they don't cause this issue? I hate that I just put 16 guys out of game indefinitely.

    I've fixed the mod that was designed to mitigate this situation. The flawed design assumed that any connection indicated the map was loadable. I incorrectly assumed that, in the scenario you "caused", the server would never raise the "player connected" event. It did, even if only briefly enough to tell the player "file not found".

    I've now modified the Shine extension (it's called "emptymapcycler", part of our TGNS mod) to now consider the map successfully loaded only after the first player drops to the RR.

    Note: this means that, if a player doesn't hit the RR within 90 seconds of the map finishing loading (or failing to load, as was the case tonight), the map will cycle.

    Apologies to Mom and everyone else affected. I'll see if I can find out why ns2_tanith isn't loading on the server.

        Nice. I'd love to discard my "emptymapcycler" hack.
