I took out the duel_bay map because of some lame stuff you can do w/ drain and this particular map. I also turned voting off since, a) it's broken and b) ppl could vote duel_bay which I didn't want them to do.

There are some commands I doubled up on because I'm paranoid.

I wonder why you keep including all the user interface (ui_) elements? They're completely lost on a dedicated server and confuse people as to what they do. I also notice that you have g_autoMapCycle set to ON, but use a custom rotation. Although it may work, I'd recommend you turn it off. You also have the maxping set to 200. Another admin might want to change that since it would keep out a good portion of modem players and some people who are just far away. If they are willing to live with a poor ping, let 'em.

You also have cl_allowDownload set which, again, has no impact on a dedicated server. The setting is NOT forced on the clients as some people seem to believe. You've also changed the g_forceRegenTime from 200 (default) to 300 but didn't explain that in the config. Then you have a bunch of settings twice:

seta duel_fraglimit "30"
set duel_fraglimit "30"
seta g_maxForceRank "7"
set g_maxForceRank "7"
seta timelimit "30"
set timelimit "30"
seta fraglimit "3"
set fraglimit "3"

I don't understand what the point of doing so would be. If there's a reason, I'd like to hear learn what it is since it's lost on me. Sorry to be critical about it. I don't pretend that the configs I provide are perfect or 100% complete. However, I think that including things that are totally irrelevant for dedicated servers just confuses the new admins. You might want to add a lot more comments to the config to help them out.

I gave him my config. Which I actually ganked from an earlier post because it had most of the neccesary c/svars. I make no claim as to it's usefullness as a template, but it works.

The console scripting language changed in key points from Q1/Q2 to Q3. I'm not all too keen on the set/seta/sets stuff. I find it rather useless, and I don't particularly trust which works when and where. So, I'm paranoid and I sometimes create duplicate commands.

The g_autoMapCycle is something new to JK2 I believe. I have it enabled, but I don't completely trust it. To be honest I don't think I changed it from the config that I got off of this board. I'm used to setting up specific map cycles via script anyways.

I didn't take out some of the client stuff because... I'm just lazy. They don't affect the server one way or the other.

If you want to create a template w/ comments and post it I won't post on these topics anymore. I don't want to make one. It's a pain in the ass. I used to do commenting for Q1/QW/Q2/Q3A client configs. It just gets annoying because nobody really looks at it anyways. They just assume that it works.

You'll have to forgive me. I come to JK2 mostly as a longtime HLDS admin, but also as a longtime quake player.

I appreciate that you bring your experience to the forum. It certainly has saved me from having to reply to all the posts. I'm just trying to see if there's a reason behind it of which I'm not aware. On the point about people using things and not looking at them as long as they work...I agree. Sometimes it's very frustrating to deal with someone who just wants to run a server to be 1337 or something, but doesn't want to really learn what they are doing. However, I try to give everyone the benefit of the doubt that they are new dedicated server admins who are in for the long haul and want to get better at their art--and dedicated server admin is certainly an art.

So of the duplicitous entries, which is the proper syntax, set or seta?


Thanks

Technically, either set or seta will work just fine. Here's a quick rundown of the set options:

set = normal (sets the cvar)

seta = set + archive (includes an entry in the jk2mpconfig.cfg for backup)

sets = set + serverinfo (includes the information when replying to a server query)

Thanks, I am just getting started and am using this template for a duel config. What is the easiest way to switch between configs? I mean, I'll probalby have a different config for every game type. Can I change the conmmand line to exec difference configs basides server.cfg, like duel.cfg or ffa.cfg or would it be easier to have different cfgs and re-name them to server.cfg when I want to use them?

Thanks for any info provided.

I would have different configs with the game specific settings named ffa.cfg, duel.cfg, ctf.cfg and just have the consistent settings in server.cfg--like server info, basic settings, motd, etc. Then, all you need to do to switch between the modes is exec the cfg for the gametype you want.
