View Full Version : Check map config doesn't work on initial server booting!

11-02-2011, 21:02
Pretty much the above. Discussed this with Asherkin and we brainstormed cause I knew I wasn't crazy. Basically a race condition where OnMapStart gets executed before the config files get loaded. Chat below.

7:50 PM - Jouva Moufette: I think I know the issue of why checkmap wasn't working for tfdodgeball
7:50 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: shoot
7:50 PM - Jouva Moufette: The code right now checks if it's not got tfdb in it, and sets it to false
7:50 PM - Jouva Moufette: But there's no EXPLICIT setting of the variable to true
7:51 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: there is in OnMapEnd
7:51 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: unless you have enabled set to false in your cfg files, that should work fine
7:52 PM - Jouva Moufette: I think I needed to because the first map had it enabled somehow
7:52 PM - Jouva Moufette: Unless explicitly setting it to enabled before setting checkmap to enabled fucks this up
7:52 PM - Jouva Moufette: I'll go check this out
7:55 PM - Jouva Moufette: "sm_dodgeball_enabled" = "1" min. 0.000000 max. 1.000000
hostname: August4th.org SuperUnSerious TF2 Server

account : logged in
map : koth_viaduct_event at: 0 x, 0 y, 0 z
players : 0 (25 max)
7:56 PM - Jouva Moufette: And checkmap is 1
7:56 PM - Jouva Moufette: And I didn't touch enabled in the config
7:57 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: is that from a fresh server start?
7:57 PM - Jouva Moufette: yes
7:57 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: file zee bug report!
7:57 PM - Jouva Moufette: And I greped the configs
7:57 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: (the whole checkmap thing is balls anyway)
7:57 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: feel free to just paste this whole chat in the post in spoiler tags
7:58 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: I'll just forget it if there isn't a thread
7:58 PM - Jouva Moufette: Plugin loading on a fresh server start does OnPluginStart then OnMapStart right?
7:58 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: yeah
7:58 PM - Jouva Moufette: Hmmm.
7:59 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: then configs are executed
7:59 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: ah
7:59 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: thats it
7:59 PM - Jouva Moufette: Ohhhhh
7:59 PM - Jouva Moufette: yeah
7:59 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: if you have enabled set in any config file = fucked
7:59 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: I can work around this
7:59 PM - :MIB: Asherkin: just, post a thread :P
