    This thread was lost to the forum goblin and as I still put my hopes in BDB to fix it, I take the chance and revive the thread.

    Basically what happens in BDBMapvote 302/303 is that in elimination mode the maps get eliminated one by one but the "reset value" is ignored and thus all maps get eliminated and that's it.

    As this feature is working well with BDBMapvote 3, the problem may be caused by the changes done, to still show the "last played maps" (in red) for admins to vote for them. Just a guess ...

    Sounds great BDB ... just send whatever you come up with to sexmachine@planetjailbreak.com and I promise to do some serious testing (and to get back on you asap - but I guess you've already feared that ... lol) - thank you very much, I really appreciate that. :)

    Thanx for the files BDB ... I'm about to do some intense 48 hour testing and get back on you with the results. :D

    EDIT: I have had a first look and by now I can say: YES, elimination mode is working ... but I really like to see it work for a few days before I make a final judgement ;)

    BDB, do you expect the changes to have any impact on the other modes too or is it sufficient to test elimination mode only (and assume the other modes are still working like they should) ?

    While testing continues (elimination mode only) there is one thing I have realized that is a bit 'scary' to me (but it might be ok, as I don't know how BDB implemented the elimination mode - so maybe it's 'by design').

    Here we go:

    My server has a total of 74 maps installed and for testing purposes I have configured MapVote (elimination mode of course) to refresh the list when 69 maps remain. The "Don't show last X maps played" value gets increased from 1 to 6 (?) and the interesting thing to look at is the state right after the "refresh" happened (see attached pic). At that time all maps become available again (that's how it should be) but the value for "Don't show last X maps played" is 6 (so it seems to be ignored just at that point) ... at the next mapchange this value changes to 1 (again, that's how it should be) and everything starts from the beginning.

    It's important to realize that all this leads to a working 'elimination mode' but isn't it more straight if the "Don't show last X maps played" value switches to 0 (instead of 6 in this case) right after the 'refresh' has happened ?

    I know this sounds a bit nitpicky (if it's intended to be that way and has no potential to cause problems it's fine for me as I am not looking after cosmetic changes) but I just felt like pointing this out (else I would be a pretty useless tester).

    Great job BDB ... now back to some more testing :)

    No, The change will not have any impact on any other modes.

    No, I need to package it up with all the other stuff that came with
    3.02 and update the readme file.

    This is normal,
    It works by increasing the RepeatLimit (ie. "Don't show last X maps played")
    until there are MinMapCount enabled maps left. Then it sets RepeatLimit
    to 0 and reloads the map list.

    Actually, It does change the running instance of MapVotes RepeatLimit
    to 0. The admin window is pulling the 6 from the default values (ini file).
    I could add a line to have it change the default value also.

    I'd say keep it like it is, as long as everything works well. :)

    MapVote304 (elimination mode) is working well for 48 hours now. Time to say THANK YOU BDB once again and I think it's safe to release this version to the public.
