Red face Another question

Thanks for your help! But now another question, after testing the map in MP with oberlechner and riaros I started a local server, in DM everything works fine but once i go to TDM everyone(bots+me) spawns in the void. And yes all the deathmatch starting points have the spawnpoint_type key and red or blue collor value and the mni file is correct as well. According to oberlechner it SHOULD work.. only it doesnt... Weve tryed deleting the bsp/aas/pth and then compiled again but still no luck.
Any ideas how to fix?

Default Re: Bot question

You need to have the same info_player_deathmatch entities without the "spawnpoint_type"
attribute, the spawnpoint_type attribute makes the spawnpoint only work when Teams are enabled, BD/CTF/TDM.

You need to clone(select one and hit space) the existing ones
and remove the attributes otherwise they will not work for DeathMatch, and everyone will spawn at the coordinates 0 0 0, depending on your map that can be inside a wall, or outside the map in the void, just like you said.


You might want to look at that tutorial as well I'm pretty sure it will help you with other issues you might come accross: http://eliteforce2.filefront.com/fil...for_EF2;107607

Ok I followd all the advices in the file you linked to. Now we enter the map(in DM(already worked) and in TDM = improvement ) but now they are using ALL the DM startpoints rather then the ones i specified to 4 red and 4 blue ones with
Code:
info_player_deathmatch + (KEY:spawnpoint_type VALUE:red) info_player_deathmatch + (KEY:spawnpoint_type VALUE:blue)

That is strange, it should work if you have followed the instructions. Try deleting all spawn loacations and placing them again.

Problem solved, some how the map did not compile correctly due to a model touching the outside of the map, which caused a leak and aborted the compile process, so a earlier version of the created bsp file was not still present.

I just forgot about that, in TDM, you spawn at the regular DM spawn-locations. Otherwise the enemy team could wait at the spawn location othe the other team and just spawnfrag all the time to get quickly many points. The spawnpoint_type blue/red only works for CTF/BD (Bomb Diffusion).

I think I have been using CTF (mp_gametype 2) while we tested.

You don't need to add flags, the game will not crash if the flags can not be found, but you will need the Bomb Item on the map or it will crash the server when running on BD.

Just replying to the other post of yours.
Please hang on.

Yes you can create a account on eliteforce2.filefront.com but this site is having issues again. I dono if this site will continue to exist there are to many issues lately that do concern me a little to much. I'm even thinking of putting up a own site.

So I strongly recommend you registering to www.moddb.com as well and upload it there too.
