Hi Skeeter, Thanx for the info, I don't know if you have noticed this yet, but there is a problem with the canyon map, well at least the problem shows itself in the canyon map more than any other map, when there are >14 players on the server, before the first flag is taken, clients get very bad lag, in your log you will notice the server prints "===pending server commands===" when this starts, and will continue to spew out lots of "cmd"'s until a player / players gets disconnected for "server command overflow" I am investigating the problem, but as yet have not solved the issue :( I am thinking about suggesting that admins not include canyon in their rotations until we get this resolved... but maybe you're not getting the problem ??

Skeeter, thanks Man, appreciate it.

Hewster, didn't you say a while back that there was an issue with running too many maps in the rotation? I notice that Skeeter has 7 maps in his, so I hope that won't cause a crash or something...is that still an issue? Ig

Ig, I think the problem is that if the map rotation script gets above a certain length it has issues, which is why I'm working on a main rotation program that will spawn off to sub scripts for all the text intensive stuff. I'll be sending you a test file to give me feed back on some time this week if I get it done. Ideally I'd love to be able to set up a script that would allow cycling through cp/large player map rotation/small player map rotation/ favorites map rotation so that players could vote for a different sequence. Not sure if possible in 1.5 but would be a nice touch for RtWW.

Yeah there is an issue, and 7 is probably the max (unless you remove a load of the info text from the rotation) asically you'll soon know if you have hit the limit , cos the server will halt (not crash) and players won't be able to connect. Hewster
