    The BallisticDeathMatch should create its own maplist in the UT2004.ini file and this is where the problem lies as thats why I suggested you start with a new ini file so the maplist can be created.
    The only other problem now is the Ballistic game does not have a maplist, unless it has it on a private ini file.
    The XInterface is ONLY for default UT2004 maplists.
    The Ballistic game should create maplists something like:
    Ballistic.MapListDeathMatch etc and if it does not, go speak to the author and get him to create a maplist.

    I apologize if I am missing the point here, please help me understand. So when I have these in my server ut2004.ini file
    and this in my ut2vote.ini

    When this is the case, and UseMapList=True, does it not mean that for each respective game style it uses the following maplist ...

    Are these not the respective maplist that are used in each game style?

    Now I had followed your instructions to delete the server ut2004.ini and let it create a new one. It did.
    Than I took the new one and deleted the map lists in all the following ...
    After that I adjust my map list in notepad for each of the 6 gamestyles and left the above list blank, leaving only the title.
    After this I inputed the new ut2004.ini file back onto the server and restarted the server.
    I than went into the game and tried to check the ut2vote for the correct maplist in each category. Only to get this message ...
    It had no maps in any of the game styles. And I don't understand how this is the case?
    Help me understand, if you could?
    I hope I have detailed this sufficiently to follow what I have done.

    note: Just a thought, after I did all this, I checked the WebAdminConsole and found that the maplist that I had put together in
    notepad where all there in each respect title. And if I pushed save the maplist(in webadmin), ut2vote would use it that map list
    for both Ballistic or Regular game styles in each respective category. And you could than pick a map to play.:confused:

    Firstly I must say I have never used maplists so I'm just quessing at what needs done here as I've watched other people do.
    Maybe someone else who has experience in maplists can help here.

    Secondly these items in your quotes:
    Those items are ONLY for the internal mapvote and have no bearing on the UT2004 games or UT2Vote what so ever - nada - nothing.
    UT2Vote ONLY interfaces with the default UT2004 maplists:

    [XInterface.MapListDeathMatch]
    [XInterface.MapListTeamDeathMatch]
    [XInterface.MapListCaptureTheFlag]
    [XInterface.MapListDoubleDomination]
    [XInterface.MapListBombingRun]
    [BonusPack.MapListMutant]
    [BonusPack.MapListLastManStanding]
    [Onslaught.ONSMapListOnslaught]
    [Skaarjpack.MapListSkaarjInvasion]
    [UT2K4Assault.ASMapList]

    So in other words if you have in UT2vote:
    Code:
     
    [UT2Vote57.UT2VoteGameTypes]
    GameType=(GameName="Team DeathMatch",HideVote=False,Clan=True,RequiredPlayers=1,MapLimits=0,ServerName="",UseMapList=True,DefaultMap="DM-Coliseum2k4",MapPrefix="DM",AltMapPrefix=,GameClass="XGame.xTeamGame",Mutators="None",Commands="?Max Lives=0?GoalScore=0?TimeLimit=59?MinPlayers=8?MaxPlayers=18?MaxSpectators=2?Translocator=False?Weapo nStay=True?BalanceTeams=True?ForceRespawn=False?PlayersMustBeReady=False?Tournament=0?GamePassword=? GameStats=True?GameSpeed=1.10?FF=0.00?NoOverTime=False?VsBots=False?NumBots=3?Difficulty=1?AirContro l=0.35?bCustomGame=True")
    
    That will ONLY refer to the maps in:
    XInterface.MapListTeamDeathMatch
    MapNum=1
    Maps=DM-Taz2k4
    Maps=DM-DE-GRENDELKEEP
    etc...
    and nothing else.

    Thats why I say the Ballistic TDM game as follows:
    Code:
     
    [UT2Vote57.UT2VoteGameTypes]
    GameType=(GameName="Ballistic TDM",HideVote=False,Clan=True,RequiredPlayers=1,MapLimits=0,ServerName="",UseMapList=True,DefaultMap="DM-{Ballistic}Goatswood",MapPrefix="DM",AltMapPrefix=,GameClass="BallisticV21.Game_BallisticTDM",Mutators="None",Commands="?MaxLives=0?GoalScore=0?TimeLimit=70?MinPlayers=8?MaxPlayers=18?MaxSpectators=2?Translocator=False?WeaponStay=True?BalanceTeams=True?ForceRespawn=False?PlayersMustBeReady=False?Tournament=0?GamePassword=?GameStats=False?GameSpeed=1.10?FF=0.00?NoOverTime=False?VsBots=False?NumBots=3?Difficulty=1?AirControl=0.35?bCustomGame=True")
    
    needs to create something like:
    BallisticV21.MapListTeamDeathMatch

    If it does not do that, then check the readme or write to the author of Ballistic.

    Well, I contacted Runestorm concerning this issue. And it appears that there is no current fix for this. They did say that they are working on a number of items, and suggested that they might find a fix for Ballistic Weapons to work with ut2vote in the maplist issue.

    So as for now it seems that I will have to change my Ballistic game style to just a mutator. It would just be a pain to vote a map, than vote in the mutator, and than be able to play the game. I guess a question I have, maybe you could help. Can I add ballistic weapons to any certain map with out having to vote it. Something like this?
    Would this be correct? Reason I ask, is because I tried it with my own game and it did not work. I added this command to the xinterface map list, would this be correct? Thanks for your time if you could!

    Yes correct, but leave out the " " quotes.

    Maps=DM-Deck17?Mutator=BallisticV21.Mut_Ballistic

    Well, I must be missing something. Because I have that exact command in the xinterface listing for dm. And than went in the game to play dm-deck and there was no ballistics. I tried it also by voting the map with ut2vote and still nothing. Is there something else that needs to be added somewhere, to make it work?

    Well, I found my problem. It was that I was typing in ?mutator=BallisticV21.Mut_Ballistics with the "s", supposed to be no "s". This seemed to have worked. Thanks again for your help!
