I run an invasion server and at the end of a match mapvote doesn't appear automatically like it used to. But I can still achieve access through the 'Home' key. Also, it doesn't always load the winning map, sometimes it randomly selects a map and loads it.
Please help, this problem is most annoying.

Thnx

ps What are the numbers for across from each map in the list?

hmm, what changed from the time it was working till the time it started not working ?
Post you MapVote ini settings and take a look at the log file.

From the ReadMe file:
Questions & Answers:
=====================
Q: What do the number beside each mapname mean ?:
A: The first number is the Sequence. (The number of previous games that the map was played. 1 being the current map,
2 the previous map, 3 the map before that etc.....
The second number is the total number of times the map has been played.

I'm not exactly sure what happened but i had about 67 maps in there, but now i've reduced that to 31(some maps just weren't being played).
I had been adding maps and updating the user.ini as i added them. Then it just stopped doing as it should.

Here is the mapvote ini settings:
[MapVote400b11.MapVote]
VoteTimeLimit=60
ScoreBoardDelay=10
bAutoOpen=True
MidGameVotePercent=50
MinMapCount=2
RepeatLimit=4
bScoreMode=False
bAccumulationMode=False
bEliminationMode=False
DefaultGameConfig=0
bDefaultToCurrentGameType=True
bKickVote=True
KickPercent=51
bRestartWithLastMap=False
bAnonymousKicking=False
MapVoteHistoryType=MapVote400b11.MapVoteHistory1
MapListLoaderType=MapVote400b11.DefaultMapListLoader
ServerTravelString=
GameConfig=(GameClass="SkaarjPack.Invasion",Prefix="DM",Acronym="DM",GameName="Invasion",Mutators="",Options="")

[MapVote400b11.DefaultMapListLoader]
bUseMapList=False
MapNamePrefixes=DM,CTF,DOM,BR
MapListTypeList=XInterface.MapListInvasion
DoUplink=True
UplinkToGamespy=True
SendStats=True
ServerBehindNAT=True
DoLANBroadcast=False
UpdateMinutes=1
MasterServerPort=27900
ServerRegion=0

Hope this can provide an answer.
Thnx

1. Why were you updating the user.ini ?
The settings should be in the UT2003.ini file.

2. Why are these settings under MapVote400b11.DefaultMapListLoader ?
They shouldnt be.
DoUplink=True
UplinkToGamespy=True
SendStats=True
ServerBehindNAT=True
DoLANBroadcast=False
UpdateMinutes=1
MasterServerPort=27900
ServerRegion=0

3. What happens after the game ends ?
Does it move on to the next map in the maplist ?

4. Do you have the latest UT2003 patch installed ?

The reason I was updating the user.ini was because at unrealadmin.org
the site said that map rotation was controlled through that file. I have since changed it so that it references to the maplist in my servers ini.
And the entries under the MapVote400b11.DefaultMapListLoader you referenced, well that has been fixed as well(I have no idea how that happened). Even still with the fixes I've made, the same symptoms still exist.

Here's the MapVote settings since I made the changes
[MapVote400b11.MapVote]
VoteTimeLimit=60
ScoreBoardDelay=10
bAutoOpen=True
MidGameVotePercent=50
MinMapCount=2
RepeatLimit=4
bScoreMode=False
bAccumulationMode=False
bEliminationMode=False
DefaultGameConfig=0
bDefaultToCurrentGameType=True
bKickVote=True
KickPercent=51
bRestartWithLastMap=False
bAnonymousKicking=False
MapVoteHistoryType=MapVote400b11.MapVoteHistory1
MapListLoaderType=MapVote400b11.DefaultMapListLoader
ServerTravelString=
GameConfig=(GameClass="SkaarjPack.Invasion",Prefix="DM",Acronym="DM",GameName="Invasion",Mutators="",Options="")

[MapVote400b11.DefaultMapListLoader]
bUseMapList=False
MapNamePrefixes=DM,CTF,DOM,BR
MapListTypeList=SkaarjPack.MaplistSkaarjInvasion

Hope you can help me with this
Oh and sorry for the crappy response time.

Thnx

- Do you have the latest UT2003 patch installed ?

- Make sure you have this in your ini file:
ServerPackages=MapVote400b11

- It is a dedicated server right ? if so send me the UCC command line string you are using.

- Please send me a complete log file from when this happened. (BDB@planetunreal.com)

- Also, if you want to use the maplist then you need to change this:

[MapVote400b11.DefaultMapListLoader]
bUseMapList=True
MapNamePrefixes=DM
MapListTypeList=SkaarjPack.MaplistSkaarjInvasion
