Dedicated server options?
« on: June 28, 2019, 07:32:07 PM »
I'm trying to set up a dedicated server for Quake 2 that I'm running at a local con.  I got it running with a batch file I set up, but it seems that when I run it the match never end and goes to the next map.  How do I add options to the config so that there is a score/time limit and a maplist?

Hm, I have set the fraglimit and timelimit, but it still doesn't end the match after either of those have hit.

What gives?

Use rcon or the server console to verify timelimit and fraglimit are set to expected values.
What mod are you trying to use?

Shoutbox isn't the place for rehashing this. Here's the thread about DM server spawn farthest from 2006/2007:

It's not ideal for 1v1 situations, but that's what the DM server is supposed to cater to. Also, there are 7 other maps besides DM4 (actually 8 for the automatic mymap map between dm8 and dm1). I think there are more positives than negatives.

It happens to better players too. I know I've been in first, or second place, only to die and spawn right next to the other leading player multiple times in a row, and having to dodge rockets in a narrow corridor without any weapons myself (other than blaster).

It's not the best for 1v1 situation

I saw a clearly-new player earlier, and it spawned him like 3 or 4 times in a row right next to a better player. Instant death each time they spawned. I imagine that can be discouraging and frustrating, particularly when someone is trying to get a handle on the game. Spawn farthest would avoid this.

Might be interesting to code a hybrid spawn function that doesn't focus on "farthest" so much as avoiding the few most congested spawn points?
