Reply With Quote #1

So I run a smallish L4D2 server for myself and friends of mine with many SM plugins as well as workshop content.
Things -mostly- work alright and we have solved many an issue with trial and error (such as broken plugins/outdated pre-TLS content and such) but one issue remains persistent and we cannot seem to figure it out for the life of us. I am hoping some here will at least be able to provide insight or experience with such issues as we've struggled with this problem for several years now but never found a solid fix. It's quite an annoyance.

The issue in particular: When survivors reach a trigger/event (specifically things like buttons to progress the map, like a gate/door opening, etc.) The button activates alright, but thereafter when said door is supposed to open or event is supposed to finish, nothing happens and the map is effectively softlocked.

The only 'workaround' as of yet we've found is to slay all players to force a round restart, get to that point in the map again, then hope it works this time. It's a 50/50-- usually it's still bugged and requires yet another restart of the map/round. This can happen several times in a row...

There are some strange symptoms that go along with this, too:

1. The probability of the map succeeding with only one player to test (myself usually) on the server at any given time is twice-fold. It works with just me -most- of the time with 3/4 other bots present.

2. Original survivor set all present -does- seem to usually give a higher probability of success, but not always; sometimes it's still completely broken.
For instance, it can also succeed with an entire team of Coaches on occasion, but yet fail on a full L4D2 survivor set sometimes, too.

3. If survivors stick closer together bundled up during the duration of the triggering it seems more likely to succeed, but again not always.

My frustration with this issue stems from the fact that it seems completely random and we cannot track it down to any one plugin. We have done extensive process-of-elimination and everything yet can't figure out why it's still happening, as it seems to trigger either way, at random, regardless of the assortment of plugins we are using.
