    Error with my server

    I just got a new server and i just uploaded about 200 maps or so. Some of the maps work but when i try to change the map to a new custom map it doesnt load and crashes. I put the maps in the maps folder, models in models folder, gfk in gfk, sound in sound, sounds in sounds....hmm any ideas guys? This has really got me stumped.

    Re: Error with my server

    If a map comes as a *.bsp, extract it to your /SvenCoop/maps/ folder. If it comes in plain *.mdl, *.wav, *spr, or *.tga files, then refer to the map's readme for installation instructions. If there are none, try to find one. If there plain simply is none, try extracting *.mdl to your /SvenCoop/models/, *.wav to your /SvenCoop/sound/, *.spr to your /SvenCoop/sprites/, and *.tga (or *.bmp) to your /SvenCoop/gfx/env/. If the map further does not work: then either the map was poorly compiled and debugged, you need to increase your maxplayers (see http://www.svencoop.com/forums/showthread.php?t=33580), poor or no proper installation instructions were provided. Just extracting *.mdl's to the /SvenCoop/models/ folder won't even solve your problem (unless the mapper decided to contain all the map's custom models right in there, which is stupid and not very wise). *.wad files go into your /SvenCoop/ directory.

    A proper packaging of any map or map pack should consist of only having to extract a SvenCoop folder into your half-life folder (overwriting your SvenCoop folder). If it didn't come like that, you may have to extract it to your SvenCoop folder (unless it didn't even come like that even). It shouldn't be very hard at all though. Where did you get these 200+ maps? I have a light hunch that some may possibly out-dated to work on v3.0 (though I kind of doubt it). Any errors on crashes?

    Re: Error with my server

    Sorry, but it sounds very strange.
    Did you try to look in your "logs" folder, and see if there is a crash error in the logs ?

    To turn on logs put this line in your "server.cfg"
    log on

    And in your start command put this :
    +logsdir logs

    That should turn loggin on for sure, then there should be a "logs" folder in your server directory.

    Where did you get the maps from? There's no way you could have gotten ahold of Sven Co-op v3.5 maps unless someone leaked a few things, possibly.

    svencoopcentral.com that particular map is thevoid....some maps seem to work while 70% or so of them just crash the server leaving no error in the log file.

    Re: Error with my server

    Well I highly doubt it was a Sven Co-op v3.5 map since it was available as a public download from svencoopcentral.com. But anyhow. D: Half-Life Rally is 100% unplayable due to an unknown error. It crashes to desktop with no errors (including within logs) upon loading of any map.
