    I saw something occur on my server last night that caused me a good deal of concern. I watched a single player connected to my server "Force" a CTF map (CTF-November) from BDBMapVote3 into play that I don't even have in my map rotation. Is this something that can easily be done from the client side, or is this a "hack" of sorts? I've checked the documentation on BDBMapVote3, and see nothing that indicates this can be done from the client side. (I do have the "Use the Map Cycle List instead of all maps" box checked in my MapVote3 in the Admin section, Misc section of the MapVote config...)
    The info - BDBMapVote 3.00, UT dedicated server 4.36, UTPure RC5b w/ Valhalla Avatar 0.9 Beta, Windows 2000 Pro O/S. I've attached a portion of the log file and my Map lists.
    Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated here (other than the "remove the maps you don't want to cycle from the \UnrealTournament\Maps folder"....)

    I don't know of any hacks that would allow a player to vote for a
    map that isn't in the list.
    When a player submits a vote for a map it is validated on the
    server side against the map list. If the map name isn't in
    the list then the vote is not counted.
    So, I don't know how he was able to do this.

    I will review the code and think about it.
    If it happens again send me the whole zipped log and the
    MapVote config section from the ini in Email so I can
    anaylyze everything.

    Thanks

    I appreciate the response, and any input here. I have this posted in a few other forums as well, but no-one has EVER seen this happen. I know the player wasn't logged in under ADMINLOGIN, but I have disabled remote login for the time being.
    I've tried to recreate this, and have been unable to do so. For now, I've moved all maps not in rotation into a seperate directory.
    Thank you for any light you might be able to shed on this.
    BTW - Ironman_Oz has put some screenshots of you handing some of our clan members their asses last week. lol Have you seen them? www.bsoz.com

    No, I haven't seen those screen shots before.
    That's cool.

    I like all the different player models on your server but
    it took forever to download the first time.

    Anyway, It was fun playing on your server.
