Edited the hardcoded line to alot for the amount of maps on our server to 900.
I couldn't find any fundamental reason why a large number of maps would cause any major issues other than maybe a little lag when it's trying to loop through the long list. So, I was starting to wonder if the server itself is having issues. What happens if you leave all the maps in the maps directory and just remove it from your mapcyclefile?

This plugin does scan the whole maps directory but only to make the allmaps.txt file if it doesn't already exist. I find it unlikely that this would cause any issues since it's ignored most of the time.

After removing the mapcycles.txt file the lag or hang is still the same. With the plugin disable the server loads buttery smooth and with galileo it loads smooth as well aside for the crashes. Still working on the culprit with that one and doing more testing with the gal_pagination setting.

I took some time to refactor how it was loading the map files to see if that makes a difference. I removed several loops including nested loops that would definitely cause a larger than 1-to-1 increase in processor time as the map list gets longer. This removes allmaps.txt entirely (there were some scenarios where it might be used). Maps that you can nominate are loaded from the file set as the mapcyclefile and maps to fill the voting slots when less than 5 maps are nominated are loaded from mapchoice.ini.

The nested loops were primarily checking for duplicate map names in the files so I'd recommend that you don't duplicate map names in the files (though I doubt it would affect anything). Also, make sure that both files have have at least like ~20 maps.

Let me know how it works out.

So far, so good. I'm able to list 900 maps without any lag and there isnt any lag while connecting to the server or after entering the server. I added the list of maps to the mapcycle.txt and the mapschoice.ini with +20 maps unduplicated. In this case there are 900 maps in the mapcycles.txt file.

edit: yet to do a full server with 32 players. We should have a full server starting later tonight and i'll post here if there are any issues.

As Infamanious mentioned, the plugin seems to work well enough but we did notice an issue. If the mapcycle.txt has the ~900 maps in it, it messes up demo recording with this -->

I would prefer if the original mapname files were used to avoid confusion with updates from previous (3.23) version. Currently I have the cvar mapcyclefile set to mapcycle.txt with only 25 or so maps and it's working ok and most players know the names of most maps but now and then someone won't remember the name (or exact name) and will not have the full list of maps. The old behavior of listmaps using the allmaps.txt and the maps that are cycled through which are much less using mapcycle.txt/mapchoice.ini would be preferable.

  1. This was just a test to see where the loading issue was occurring. I didn't change anything else.
  2. I'm not sure how the loading of maps by the server at the beginning of the map before any clients have connected would be related to recording a demo on the client.

I'm too tired to look through the code to respond to your second post. I'll have to come back to that.

It's working for the most part so no worries. The "precaching resources" delay is totally gone and we had 1-2 players that would totally freeze and that's gone too so I'm ok where it is for now. I think the demo issue had something to do with the pagination but not sure. A file was created with the demo that had a list of maps but it ended right around 600-700 maps.
