No, I am afraid that it's hard-coded in the server binary files;
we can't change that logic unless we dig into the binary code I guess.

EDIT: Actually there's a setting called "Minimum Players for Voting" and it's currently set to 12, but I don't know if it's for kicks or map votings, or both. I have lowered it to 4, let me know if you notice any changes please!!! (on BF2CC it says minimum number of votes for a poll to be successful ).

Please explain what a "idlemap" is; I understood your statements but I did not quite understand what an idlemap is. I mean, it looks like you want to eliminate idlemaps from the rotation! (so that the Server wouldn't be killed).

@everyone please discuss what dsghsdf said and let me know your thoughts! Instead of creating a map rotation from zero - which is harder - let's try to work our way from the one we have now ... make small adjustments here and there, test them ... babysteps.

- Devils Perch
- Ghost Town
- Iron Gator
- Leviathan
- Mass Destruction
- Night Flight
- Surge
- Warlord

hi guys,
could somebody set an idlemap? i think it would be easier to get players with more popular maps like ghosttown or warlord as starter.
maybe setup a mapcycle like this

Warlord - gets the easteuros on the server(timezone), no helis
Ghost Town - small map, all types of vehicles, can be played inf only too, popular
Night Flight - inf/light vehicle night map
Iron Gator - fight inside carrier
Mass Destruction
Devils Perch
Surge
Leviathan

the other maps are good too, people join them but they can be serverkillers too.
MD has no mainbase and if RU gets 2 hinds then its mostly just massacre for rebels, spawnrape at last flag.
DP and Levi can be serverkiller and lots of empty servers get stuck on them.
Surge is good map imo, all vehicles, maybe helps to keep server going between DP and Levi.

maybe test for some days, make some changes like switch GT-WL, Surge - MD, NF - IG, DP - Levi and see what happens.
or run GT, WL and ... a 2nd time after DP.

and/or could you set the playernumber required to start a mapvote to 2? now its 8 or 10.
with lower setting people could switch from serverkiller, just a handfull of players on Levi is no fun and they cant change map now, so they all leave.
3 empty servers are stuck on Devils Perch right now and the only way to change map is to idle and wait for 2 or more players to take all flags
:-/

thank you

ok, thanks shark and mitch.
the "glitch" is kind of borderline since its still possible to kill him.
but rounds are over quick and boring if mecs do it.
and i dont know if the squadbug will fix itself, i assumed it needs a restart.
i never hosted a bf2 server and we had no squads in bf42 tongue

No dsghsdf, as you have reported it here in more detail, capping flags through the helicopter is still considered a glitch; and we usually ban them if they ignore our warnings and keep glitching exploiting the glitch. Other admins may ban a glitcher on sight.

Regarding the other nuisances, well, that's BF2 for you! amused Those are bugs within the game, if they're still present I will try to reboot the Server. Let me know, and thank you for your inputs so far.

In my personal opinion I would assume that would be abusing some for of in-game glitch to gain an unfair advantage. However, as I have not played too much of Special Forces I believe that other users would have something more to add to this than myself. However, I believe that the Senior LS Admins may have something important to say about this.

Thanks,
Mitch

4 players to start the game sux but its same on the other servers, no disadvantage for you.
64 maps have more flags and vehicles = more options to take flag and keep game going.
and 2vs2 can be just as lame on 64, 32 or 16.
its players choice if they want to fight with vehicle and commander or just walk around and try funny stuff.
somebody just needs to join 1 sf server and more people will join, works like that since first bl sf server.

Some maps are not that big even in 64 player size, at least not compareable to the vanilla BF2 maps. Moreover the difference between 32 and 64 is small for most maps. All SF players are used to the 64 map size since battlelog only provides that map size.

The problem we have is that only a few people of our team plays SF very active. We could easily fill up the server when we would get 4-6 players of our team together.

dsghsdf is a very experienced and regularly active SF player. I think we should consider his suggestion and give it a try.


Thanks
