Im running a COD4 Openwarfare MOD and running lots of fun maps.. anyway... there are a few that i cannot put in my rotation list because the maker of the map didn't make it with the mp_ in front of the mapname. Is there a way for me to fix this so that my map rotation reads it? I can force load the map through the RconTool but I want a certain map called q3ctf3 (notice it has no mp_ in front of it) to load automatically in roatation. Please help.

If you have access to the .ff file, just rename it. I don't really have CoD4 now so I can't be at 100% sure.

Example:
q3ctf3 -> mp_q3ctf3

(By the way, I see a Quake 3 fan ;3)

Hey, I'm the maker of q3ctf3 :D Just putting "map q3ctf3" into the rotation along with the other maps should work.

"gametype tdm map mp_blah1 map q3ctf3 map mp_blah2"


@MPKiller545
That won't work, the bsp and everything else that is compiled into the .ff is still named q3ctf3.

I did try that and it still wont load.. it tries to load while your in game... it will come up like its about to load and then it forwards to the next map in rotation.

Im running 30 maps in the rotation

(example)
set sv_mapRotation "gametype dm map mp_fart_house_v2 gametype dm map mp_rooftops gametype dm map mp_ncc_1701 gametype dm map mp_dassance"

set sv_mapRotation_1 "gametype ctf map q3ctf3 gametype...etc..."


I also tried to rename the iwd and ff files to read mp_q3ctf3.ff etc... and it wouldnt load at all after doing so.

Great map and music by the way.. and yes im a Quake Veteran... Miss it alot..

Hmm, I just tried it with OpenWarfare, it seems to load ok for me, but sometimes it will load the map then go back to normal rotation if you do a manual map change.

I used this rotation which seemed to work:

set sv_mapRotation "gametype war map rat_house_v2b1 map mp_backlot map cube map mp_pipeline"
set sv_mapRotation_1 "gametype ctf map q3ctf3 map mp_backlot map wawa_ctf"

I tried this and it just skips the q3 map and goes right back to asylum.. I had this same problem back in the day with rat_house_v2b1 and was never able to get it to cooperate in the rotation. I had to force load it when players wanted it.

set sv_mapRotation "gametype war map mp_asylum"
set sv_mapRotation_1 "gametype dm map q3ctf3"

Ah, I think I may have found the problem, I was testing with OW 1.5 (wasn't sure if that was the latest version since OW website wasn't working earlier) which worked with maps that don't have mp_. But I've now found this http://openwarfaremod.com/owforum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=4713 which I assume is the latest version?
Anyway, with that second one the map rotation parser seems to be ignoring maps that don't begin with mp_, I'll post a fix in a bit.

If you're running OpenWarfare v4.169.2469 then download the attachment, unzip the iwd to the openwarfare mod folder, restart server and maps that don't have mp_ should work.
