Sorry for late reply, but I don't know where the problem is or how to reproduce it.

The ingame map voting "Esc/Voting/Maps/ is blank no maps showing but the maps are there if I tick where the maps should be and hit F1 the vote passes and the server restarts and map executes, but there is no map names showing it is blank.


This sounds like a problem with the fonts used for the map list. Can you check what happens if you change the font settings in ESC/silEnT/Fonts.

Changing the g_gametype value to 16 is indeed a weird one. Can't imagine a reason for it to have an effect like that and the g_gametype value is passed to all clients in the serverinfo. You can confirm the value with serverbrowser websites like TrackBase. Do note that all the values above 5 will display as mapvoting there. Gametype 7 is Team Death Match gametype, but that uses different cvar for enabling the map voting. These cvars do not collide no matter how they are set.

A step in the right direction
Hey Gaoesa, changing fonts does nothing, I checked another silent 260.b server and its doing the same thing as
mine no maps showing on Esc/voting/maps. I know the information for Esc/voting/maps comes from one of two places, etmain or mapvotecycle.cfg do you know which one it is? I think it is the mapvotecycle.cfg because as I said if I change the g_gametype number from 6 to 16 all sixteen maps show up. The other thing that could cause it is a currupt file but with one could it be is the question. I guess I could save my Silent Server cfg, database files.Delete all the Silent mod fills and start fresh. Don't know what else to try I was hoping it was a cvar that was set wrong on the Silent server cfg.
Oh one more thing for you all, if admins make a server cfg they need name it anything other than server.cfg because if they name it server.cfg then they will have two server.cfg folders on etmain because E.T. installs it's own server.cfg, talk about confussing the server, I don't think it would even run if it is trying to execute two server.cfg folders at the same time. Thanks RaneR

My other server is 2.60b and it is using map voting without problems, though with TDM. Also, I know pure 2.60b servers that use objective map voting without problems. I don't see how that could be a problem.

I know the information for Esc/voting/maps comes from one of two places, etmain or mapvotecycle.cfg do you know which one it is?


They come from the etmain folder. The mapvotecycle.cfg only creates some user cvars for the server to use.

I guess I could save my Silent Server cfg, database files.Delete all the Silent mod fills and start fresh.


I would suggest deleting/moving elsewhere all the files you don't need. Especially all the custom packs if you have any. Then all the cfg files that you are not using, there are many.

Oh one more thing for you all, if admins make a server cfg they need name it anything other than server.cfg because if they name it server.cfg then they will have two server.cfg folders on etmain because E.T. installs it's own server.cfg, talk about confussing the server, I don't think it would even run if it is trying to execute two server.cfg folders at the same time.


That is why the quick installation uses silent.cfg. We thought about the folder where to put the cfg. I prefer using the mod folder but it turned out, most admins place the files in the etmain folder. We don't provide file named the server.cfg for that exact reason.

There is no such gametype as 16. That is what is weird.

O.k. Gaoesa, I'll keep messing with it and I'll post if I figure it out. Oh By the way.
Could you PM me or post your silent cfg so I can mirror your setting to mine.
I need a working cfg with no bugs in it. Or if you want I can PM you the servers control panel logins and you all can take a look and see if you can spot the problem. thanks RaneR

Gaoesa, here is some more info:

set vote_allow_gametype 1

// Map voting
set g_mapVoteFlags 21
set g_maxMapsVotedFor 26
set g_minMapAge 8
set g_resetXPMapCount 0
set g_gametype 6

// Custom configs
set g_mapScriptDirectory "mapscripts"
set g_campaignFile ""
set g_mapConfigs "mapconfigs"
set g_settings "settings.cfg"

exec mapvotecycle.cfg

According to what I've read on the manual the above are all the
commands that control map execution and map voting.


Should the mapvoteinfo.cfg be somewhere on the silent server cfg
or is it checked automaticly by the silent?



Below are the maps in the mapvoteinfo.cfg
All the maps in my etmain are shown. but still nothing showing on
Esc/vote/maps, and on the intermission vote screen only 16 maps are
available for voting same number that is on my mapvotecycle.cfg
seems to me it's reading the mapvotecycle.cfg and not the maps installed on
etmain. Let me know if you see anything that is set wrong or If
I'm missing a cvar setting. Thanks RaneR.
