//Whats next?

-Ofcourse the Servername color hack.
-I'm thinking an advanced tab for all those
 obscure "set" settings.
-A few more elements of convienence(autodetect 
 SOF location, etc..)
-Not sure what else it needs .. Lemme know
Thanks for all the feedback.

THE MAP LIST - It's built by checking every directory above the SOF\USER\ directory. Then it ofcourse searches for all files with the BSP extention. I did this method because the LST files didn't include all the maps you have(unless you like using notepad all day) I plan to have an alternate view which will read your custom LST files at a later date. In the meantime I created a routine which remembers your "favorite" map list, so you need only create it once.

BACKUP OLD CFG - Every time the game is launched it makes a backup of  the last dedicated.cfg called "Dedicated.bak". I've got it disabled right now because I plan to change some of the backup methods.

DM_FLAGS MENU  - This menu actively responds to the gametype selected and automatically invokes/nullifies/disables/enables the DM_FLAGS in accordance with the table listed at:
I'm pretty sure I got it right, but if you see something funky let me know.

SOF LOCATION - It's still using the "type-in" method. I haven't bothered to dummy-proof it so please leave the last "\" and the "SOF.EXE" out of this line. I plan to replace this method by reading the registry@
		 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\sof.exe (I hope it works)

FILE DEFINITIONS: (all but the EXE text files)
-SOFStarter.EXE - SOF Server Launcher executable.
-SOFStarter.CFG - Configuration file. Used to store default config.

1. Extract SOFStarter.Exe to you SOF folder. (e.g. C:\Program Files\Raven\SOF Gold)

2. Create a shortcut on your desktop to this program.

3. Launch the program.

4. Follow Steps 1-7 and press "GO".
