Doesn't always start on versus.
« on: February 04, 2018, 01:41:47 pm »
So, couple issues here. They may be the same issue. First, the server doesn't always load to the map I choose via versus lobby. Sometimes it will load correctly, other times it will go to the default campaign +map setting in the srcds file. It also shows up as campaign in the steam groups menu.

Second issue is that it doesn't consistently load the promod pub config. It only partially works on those times. Sometimes it will perfectly work. So I attempted to run confogl_off beforehand to reset it. May have fixed it, Idk. The first issue occurs too often for the second to be tested.

Server.cfg below.

Code: [Select]
// [General]
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------
hostname "Just a server, bro."       // Hostname bit that won't change.                             

rcon_password "???????????????????????????"        // Rcon password, used for remote access mostly.
sv_steamgroup_exclusive "1"              // If set, only members of Steam group will be able to join the server when it's empty, public people will be able to join the server only if it has players.
                                         // (Forcing the IP as a non-group member in lobby, or directly connecting always works)
sv_steamgroup "31950527"

sm_cvar confogl_autoloader_config "promodpub" // Config/Matchmode to launch with the autoloader
sm_cvar confogl_autoloader_execcfg "confogl_off.cfg" // Config to exec before starting confogl, leave empty if none.
sv_gametypes "versus"
sm_cvar sv_gameinstructor_disable 1

motdfile "mymotd.txt"                    // This ensures that Valve doesn't overwrite the MoTD every Update.      [Edit this file instead of motd.txt, found in the same folder (/left4dead2)]
hostfile "myhost.txt"                    // This ensures that Valve doesn't overwrite the Hostfile every Update.  [Edit this file instead of host.txt, found in the same folder (/left4dead2)]

// [Other Neat Stuff]
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------
sv_allow_lobby_connect_only "0"          // If set to 1, players may only join this server from matchmaking lobby, may not connect directly.

// [File Consistency]     
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------                 
sv_consistency "1"                       // Whether the server enforces file consistency for critical files.
sv_pure "2"                              // The server will force all client files to come from Steam and additional files matching the Server.
sv_pure_kick_clients "1"                 // If set to 1, the server will kick clients with mismatching files.

// [Addon Disabler]     
// - This Setting will disable/enable the Serverside Addon Disabler.
// - Setting it to 1 will activate the Disabler whilst still allowing you to allow certain players to enter with addons (in Competitive Configs this is used to allow spectators registered as casters to use addons)
// - Setting it to 0 will disable the Disabler.
// -----------------------------------------------------------------------

// - Rates forced to 100 on Clients, for 100 Tick.
// - When using a different Tickrate, modify settings accordingly:
// 1. Change 100000 to (Tickrate * 1000) for Rate and Splitpacket.
// 2. Change 100 to (Tickrate) for Cmd and Update Rates.
