I and a friend have downloaded the patches and both official mappacks. But several maps from the map pack1 do not show up under Deathmatch games when selecting for starting a a new server game ( not dedicated servers ). Posey House, Phars Playpen, Plant 72, Sib Base and 3 others will not show ubder Deatmatch or the other categories yet the maps play for use when we join other servers.

The maps were unzipped to the proper Base folder.

Anybody no why they don't show up?

Yeah, after you get a certain amount of maps in your base folder, then they start to not show up in the map-list. They don't show up in DM first, because all maps support DM.

I don't think there is a fix for it, but you can still run the maps. Just drag the .pk3 into winzip and you should see a file ending in .bsp that's the map file. Take note of it's name.

Open sof2 and in the console type: map bspname

Where bspname is replaced with the name of the bsp :smack:, eg. mp_jor1

There actually is a fix for it but I forgot which setting it is.......... There is a value within the sof2.cfg file that can be changed from 50 to 100 or so and that will allow all your maps to show! If anyone out there knows please send me the info. I have asked here before but didn't get a response!

I looked in the .cfg and only found an entry "seta cg camera orbit 50" that has a value of 50.

Doubt it has anything to do with it. Dragging the .pk3 to winzip only shows the 1 file and .txt files no map names although they are in the mappack readme.

So the new maps I download are slowly kicking maps from mappack1. That's lame. Who designed that? Nice touch.

Going to console may work but what a pain in the hoop.

Anyone know of other fixes
