What needs to happen is read the map cycle as normal to determine the next map, but read the previous map to check if it's running now. This is to ensure the map cycle is followed, because if the current map isn't the previous map, it re-schedules the previous map to run again.

That's why I'm reading the map cycle twice.

What's the difference between a CVAR and PCVAR btw?
Code:
new p_Cvar ... p_Cvar = register_cvar("amx_somecvar","1.0");
They sacrifice small bit of memory for speed. get_pcvar_*/set_pcvar_* are direct "pointers" to the CVar memory. Instead of a string look-up. (It's always recommended to use PCvar's over CVars)

Figure it out yet, or should I install Sven and fry my brain for (computer) science?

I haven't seems to be an issue even with the official non-modified plug-in too.

(there is a rar archive of the game if you don't want an installer)

For the record, this was caused because Sven Co-op had the 'mapcyclefile' CVAR protected.

I have changed this to just FCVAR_SERVER and FCVAR_UNLOGGED and AMXX now reads it fine, every time. This fix will be available in version 4.1 of Sven Co-op.
