View Full Version : Server Questions....

10-07-2002, 08:13 PM
I am going to be bringing up a server and I had some questions. This is the 1st time I have played with the sven co-op (been running CS servers for about the last 2 years now).


1. mapcycle... what maps are good, what should I avoid.

2. Max Players, what is a good playable number? Bandwidth is not an issue here.

3. Any recommended server settings (besides the obvious).

4. Cheating... how bad is it with this MOD?

1) Grab all the official map packs, they're all good maps.

2) Anything more than 6-8 is insane...

3) No idea.

4) Not bad. More morons than cheaters...

Reminds me of how insane Mr. Magic's server is sometimes ;)

Yeh Booga is right,

Depends what sort of maps you like as to what you put in your mapcycle.

Download as many maps as you can. Just amke sure they are all in your mapvote.cfg file
Then if there not in your mapcycle your players can vote for them.

If youve got good bandwidth, then id say bring up two smaller servers, rather than one big one.

Change the timelimit to at least 40 mins or the players wont get time to complete the maps

I've got a question that fits into this topic:

What exactly is the variable sv_notimelimit for? If I don't want a timelimit I just set mp_timelimit to 0 - so what?
