Well with the release of TacOps 2.0, MapVote3 doesn't seem to be working 100% anymore.

If people want to vote in the middle of the game that part works fine, but at the end of the game, people are not prompted to vote. The server just loads the next map in the map list without popping up MapVote.

I am curious if anybody has been able to get this working with TacOps 2.0, or if we will need to bribe BDB into making a special version for TacOps 2.0?

Thanks.

Cool, that would be great, because without MapVote, my server just isn't the same.

Ok, I figured out the problem.
The TO team has replaced the base game class code (DeathMatchPlus) with their own. Doh !!!!
MapVote depends on the base game class being "DeathMatchPlus".

So, It looks like I will have to make a special TO MapVote version.

In the mean time I have figured out a way to "Hack" the TacticalOps.ini file and get it to work.

Here is what needs changed in the TacticalOps.ini file:
(Note: I'm only listing the options that need changed)

[s_SWAT.TO_DeathMatchPlus]
bChangeLevels=False
RestartWait=300

[BDBMapVote3.BDBMapVote3]
bAutoDetect=True
bDM=False
bLMS=False
bTDM=False
bDOM=False
bCTF=False
bAS=False
bOther=False
OtherClass=
ScoreBoardDelay=4
bAutoOpen=True
bTOTieGameFix=True
bCheckOtherGameTie=False


Let me know if this works out. Also let me know what your
server address is so I can join a game.

Thanks BDB. I am trying it on my server now.

Server address is: 65.100.173.61 (Kill Your Co-Worker)

Please feel free to join.

Thanks again.

We had a problem with the above fix , this change should fix it :

bTOTieGameFix=True

BDB, we already tried that setting the first time when you were there testing it with me.

Did you mean to say?

bTOTieGameFix=False

Just curious...

Thanks.

OK, appears to be working now. Here are the settings that I used.

[s_SWAT.TO_DeathMatchPlus]
bChangeLevels=False
RestartWait=75

[BDBMapVote3.BDBMapVote3]
bAutoDetect=True
bDM=False
bLMS=False
bTDM=False
bDOM=False
bCTF=False
bAS=False
bOther=False
OtherClass=
ScoreBoardDelay=5
bAutoOpen=True
bTOTieGameFix=True
bCheckOtherGameTie=True

Only tested it for one round so far, but these settings seem to make sense.

Thanks for your help BDB, I will be sure to spread the word around about this fix, and I'm still open to a special version of MapVote for TO if you are still up to it.

Sorry, BDB was right about the TieGame fix setting, and I forgot to come back and edit it.

I have edited my previous post, and it works for me MOST of the time, but as BDB has explained to me, this may not work all the time. I guess it all depends on how the round ends.

Let me know if you need anymore help. I will see what I can do.

That works for me :) (sory for such a long cut&paste - i'm lazy)

but i got another problem unreleated do mapvote - server often crashes :(
or spontaniously changes its query port from 7778 to 7783 (weird)
