A strange thing is going on in my server, whenever I modify the Maplist via Web Admin, I see that people are still able to vote for maps that aren't even ON the rotation.

Current Map: Cabin[WB], in-case you can't tell what those alts are, and that's normal, happens on my other server too, must be a map developer's thing

Posting as links instead of actual img as its quite huge..sorry.

I'm like WTF, I haven't changed anything in the game, its been doing this since day one when I got the server, first by seeing '.rom' at the end of maps in the selection, then people being able to play maps that aren't even IN the rotation (Santa's Evil Lair, Intro *I can't find that map on the list in rotation*), and now, I'm unsure what to do. Help?

This is to do with your mapvote settings. In your Server.ini search [xVoting.DefaultMapListLoader]. There should be bUseMapList=False. Change that to True and it'll use your maplist (and then manually add the maps in the list before in the same file.

If you do not have this setting then add to the bottom of your Server.ini:
Code:
[xVoting.DefaultMapListLoader]
bUseMapList=False

The maplist would be under
Code:
[DefaultKF MaplistRecord]

This will make the server use this list of maps only. Only problem is actually having to do it manually (as WebAdmin has a limit of maps it can add to the list).

You are AWESOME. Fixed the weird .rom bug as well, thanks!

Edit: The problem was the Xvoting thing was set to False, I'm unfamiliar with the .cfg...and would love to learn XD

Been doing Unreal series servers way too long mate (about 8 years and im almost 20 :p) and you're welcome.

What do you mean the .rom bug as my servers show the .rom at end of the name and I thought this was normal for KF? Is this what you mean, if so, how did you get it to not show the ".rom"?

I am NOT sure lol, all I know is after changing the Vote setting in the cfg like you mentioned, the maplist now shows the title instead of the map file name.

Before it showed this.


Now it looks like this.


No .rom at the end.
