    Ok heres another one...

    I and others it seems have attempted to setup the VCTF gametype in the Mapvoter thru webadmin. We have also made sure that the gametype has the proper maps listed in the active maps cycle. But when you go into the game and pull up the Mapvoter and then choose the new voteable gametype, none of the VCTF maps are listed.

    You can however tell webadmin to switch to the VCTF gametype and a VCTF map just fine then go in and play the map without any problems. It seems you just cant get the Mapvoter to see or display any of the VCTF maps.

    your problem is likely to be this section

    [xVoting.DefaultMapListLoader]
    bUseMapList=False
    MapNamePrefixes=DM,DOM,CTF,BR,AS,ONS,VCTF

    make sure you have VCTF as a known prefix


    just helped fix this for somone on the atari forums , and this was his issue

    Ok well i did that and i still have no luck. Here is what i have for settings in regards to VCTF in my ini file.

    [xVoting.xVotingHandler]
    VoteTimeLimit=70
    ScoreBoardDelay=5
    bAutoOpen=True
    MidGameVotePercent=50
    bScoreMode=False
    bAccumulationMode=False
    bEliminationMode=False
    MinMapCount=2
    MapVoteHistoryType=xVoting.MapVoteHistory_INI
    RepeatLimit=4
    DefaultGameConfig=0
    bDefaultToCurrentGameType=True
    bMapVote=True
    bKickVote=False
    bMatchSetup=False
    KickPercent=51
    bAnonymousKicking=True
    MapListLoaderType=xVoting.DefaultMapListLoader
    ServerNumber=1
    CurrentGameConfig=11
    GameConfig=(GameClass="XGame.xVehicleCTFGame",Prefix="VCTF",Acronym="VCTF",GameName="VCTF",Mutators=,Options=)

    -------------------------

    [XGame.xVehicleCTFGame]
    bAllowNonTeamChat=False
    FriendlyFireScale=0.000000
    NetWait=5
    bForceRespawn=False
    bAdjustSkill=False
    bAllowTaunts=True
    bAllowTrans=False
    SpawnProtectionTime=2.000000
    LateEntryLives=1
    LoginMenuClass=GUI2K4.UT2K4PlayerLoginMenu
    bAllowPrivateChat=True
    bWeaponStay=True
    bAllowWeaponThrowing=True
    ResetTimeDelay=0
    GoalScore=3
    MaxLives=0
    TimeLimit=20

    ---------------------------

    [XInterface.MapListVehicleCTF]
    MapNum=0
    Maps=VCTF-zX-Gallery

    Now whats interesting is everytime i go and add the following lines to my ini file, ut2004 removes part of it and adds the entries to the [xVoting.xVotingHandler] section instead. Not sure why or if it suppose to but it does.

    [xVoting.DefaultMapListLoader]
    bUseMapList=True
    MapNamePrefixes=DM,DOM,CTF,BR,AS,ONS,INV,VCTF

    so you end up with the [xVoting.xVotingHandler] section looking like this....

    [xVoting.xVotingHandler]
    VoteTimeLimit=70
    ScoreBoardDelay=5
    bAutoOpen=True
    MidGameVotePercent=50
    bScoreMode=False
    bAccumulationMode=False
    bEliminationMode=False
    MinMapCount=2
    MapVoteHistoryType=xVoting.MapVoteHistory_INI
    RepeatLimit=4
    DefaultGameConfig=0
    bDefaultToCurrentGameType=True
    bMapVote=True
    bKickVote=False
    bMatchSetup=False
    KickPercent=51
    bAnonymousKicking=True
    MapListLoaderType=xVoting.DefaultMapListLoader
    ServerNumber=1
    CurrentGameConfig=11
    GameConfig=(GameClass="XGame.xVehicleCTFGame",Prefix="VCTF",Acronym="VCTF",GameName="VCTF",Mutators=,Options=)
    bUseMapList=True
    MapNamePrefixes=DM,DOM,CTF,BR,AS,ONS,INV,VCTF

    any thoughts?

    that interesting try the following

    delete this part
    bUseMapList=True
    MapNamePrefixes=DM,DOM,CTF,BR,AS,ONS,INV,VCTF
    from [xVoting.xVotingHandler]

    then add this below it, leave usemaplist set to false

    [xVoting.DefaultMapListLoader]
    bUseMapList=False
    MapNamePrefixes=DM,DOM,CTF,BR,AS,ONS,VCTF,

    Well that seem to work. I noticed this time that ut2004 didnt move the entries as it had last time when it was set to true and now it lists the VTCF maps in the Mapvoter window.

    Do you know what this line is actauly telling the game 'bUseMapList=False' i mean which map list is it being told to use or not use, which ever the case may be?

    Thanks again, i really apreciate the help.

    If you set bUserMapList to True then you can specify specific map lists to load the
    map names from. If you do not specifiy any maplists then it will load the mapnames
    from the default maplists set in the game type. Therefore; setting bUseMapList=True
    with no other setting will work fine.

    If you want to specify specific maps lists then use this:

    Example:
    [xVoting.DefaultMapListLoader]
    bUseMapList=True
    MapListTypeList=MapListVehicleCTF
    MapListTypeList=MapListCaptureTheFlag


    Possible MapListTypeList settings are:
    ONSMapListOnslaught
    MapListVehicleCTF
    MapListTeamDeathMatch
    MapListSkaarjInvasion
    MapListMutant
    MapListLastManStanding
    MapListDoubleDomination
    MapListDeathMatch
    MapListCaptureTheFlag
    MapListBombingRun
    ASMapList
