Here is my problem I have 4 objectives all initially owned by the Russians(defenders) I have objectives to win set to 4(have also tried 3) The objectives work correctly and advance as they should. But after capping all objectives the round does not end. What else should I be looking at or should I just scrap them all and remake them? Is there a special order they need to be created in? It is possible I did a duplicate command on the objectives and then changed their properties could this be the cause? The last two objectives are set to be recapturable if that makes a difference. Thanks.

Hopefully someone has the answer to my mystery.

It's impossible to answer that like this. There are so many things you could have done wrong by accident or by copying from other maps.

One thing that could be set up wrong is the Defendingteam setting in the ROLevelInfo actor. Other things that can get messed up is incorrect objective numbering and all kinds of other small errors.

Other then that I suggest you create a new test map with just a levelsubstraction, and try to set up your objectives, level info and win conditions from scratch to see if it occurs a second time in a new clean map (also setting up a simple spawn point plus two roles to be able to play it).

If it has the same problems you are setting it up wrong. If not, you fixed it while setting it up again and you borked something in your original map apparantly. In that case copy the test map actors into your old map.

Rather than wait for the answer it would be quicker just to redo them; sounds like you wouldn't have too much work to do with the master objective manager.

Check to make sure you have your objectives numbered starting with objective 0 . If you have them numbered 1,2,3,4 without an objective zero it can cause the round to not end... so if you have a total of 4 objectives they should be numbered as follows: 0,1,2,3

yep I have them numbered 0123 I still have to try Drecks suggestion of zero before cutting them out and making everything from scratch. Shurek has looked at it also and couldnt find anything wrong with my setup. But it only takes one number to screw it all up I guess. Thanks.

It was mentioned above....numbering was off. 0,1,3,4 instead of 0,1,2,3. Easy mistake to make given the complexity of this map. I think everyone's going to dig it when it's released ;)

Sorry DH, but we've all been there ;) And it does help everyone else who gets stuck there in the future, so thank you anyway for sharing your mistakes.
I made every objective and spawn setup mistake possible myself at one time or another ;) It's not the most transparant system.

Yeah what Sas said... The objective and spawn systems are not very user friendly they are both systems that I consider my least favorite in RO to work with. Though working with these systems can be very frustrating we get by with them with only moderate hair loss.
