L 05/14/2004 - 21:00:53: WARNING: Couldn't find a valid map or the file doesn't exist (file "mapcycle.txt")


I do have a mapcycle.txt file in my /hlds_l/nsp/ directory.

The whole file is:
QUOTE

co_kestrel "\minplayers\8\maxplayers\20\"
ns_tanith "\minplayers\16\maxplayers\32\"
co_rebirth "\minplayers\4\maxplayers\20\"
ns_nancy "\minplayers\14\maxplayers\32\"
ns_veil "\minplayers\16\maxplayers\32\"
co_core "\minplayers\0\maxplayers\20\"
co_ulysses "\minplayers\4\maxplayers\20\"
ns_eclipse "\minplayers\14\maxplayers\32\"
co_pulse "\minplayers\8\maxplayers\20\"
ns_ayumi "\minplayers\16\maxplayers\32\"
ns_agora "\minplayers\16\maxplayers\32\"


what am I missing?

    What is outputting that warning? Is that a half-life server warning or an AMX mod warning? I have a feeling (which might be wrong) that AMX mod might be having a hard time with the extra data on the line. Try setting up a separate maps.ini with only the map names and no "maxplayer/minplayer" data in it.

    Uhm....don't mind if I cut in but I got the same warning.... it's a HL warning, not amx, we've already tried a .txt with al the min and maxplayers and one without all that and just put in the map names...no result. Because of this the server can't find any other maps and just stays on the current one after the mp_timelimit and round are over....

    oh and it is indeed located in the nsp folder but still won't work

    i had that, and i had to go to an old style mapcycle file to make it stop... not sure what caused it

    connect ns.clanhk.org

    It's fast.

    Not to ask all the dumb questions but...

    Have you checked to make sure that the file permissions on this file are correct? Should be readable by the users running hlds. Currious what the issue here is because I've never seen this issue.

    Try
    chown username.group * -R

    From your root hlds folder, subst the hlds user you start hlds from, subst the group that user is in.

    Wonder if this is just a file perms issue. Also, is this with ns2.0 and the older hlds exe or the newer steam binaries?

    Have you tried making your own mapcycle.txt with a linux text editor on the server?

    this is odd, can you post the contents of you liblist.gam with all the comments stripped out?

    Also, try starting hlds with none of the plugins loaded. no amx or metamod. this will test to see if perhaps a metamod or amx plugin is looking for it's own mapcycle.txt file in some other directory.
