Hi
I have found several maps i want to put on my server but the problem is that some of them have spawn points outside of the map or in a room with no doors or windows
How do I delete just the one spawn which is causing the error
I know it can be done in the gsc file without a bsp edit
but I don't know how
Can anyone help please

hi there

it can be done, but according to my experiences, it's a bit different than you might hope it is.

1. you have to edit the .bsp file, as the spawnpoints are stored inside the map

2. the good news is, that spawnpoints aren't encoded inside the .bsp file, you can look for them at the very end (bottom) of the file if you open it in for example notepad. look for something like this:

{
"angles" "0 270 0"
"origin" "1061 2465 80"
"classname" "mp_teamdeathmatch_spawn"
}

3. and here comes your real challenge. just judging by the coordinates, will you be able to detect which one is the spawnpoint that causes the problem? i don't think i could. but if you can, you can simply delete those rows. or if there aren't too many spawnpoints, and you have time and patience, you can play try-and-see, deleting or adding back the spawnpoints one-by-one until you figure out which one is the faulty.

4. the best way to do it, if you have the source .map file, if you have done the map, or if you know the guy that has done it. opening it in CoDRadiant, and locating the exact place can be done in no time.

cheers

Hi
I can edit it with a bsp editor and delete or move the spawn but then I would have to rename the map as it will cause problems with clients with the same map
I have seen it done with a gsc script but you have to find the entity number and I don't know how to find out which number it is

I have found this in a different gsc file to fix a tdm spawn outside of the map
how do i find the EntityNumber without using cod radiant

I have the coordinates of the spawn i need to delete .
Is there a way of altering this script and putting in the coordinates instead of the entity number


fixBugs() {

//remove an extra tdm spawn outside the play area
if ((getcvar("g_gametype") == "tdm") || (getcvar("g_gametype") == "bel") || (getcvar("g_gametype") == "hq") ) {

spawnpoints = getentarray("mp_teamdeathmatch_spawn", "classname");
for(i = 0; i < spawnpoints.size; i++) {
entno = spawnpoints getEntityNumber();
if (entno == 499) {
spawnpoints delete();
break;
}
}

wait 0.1; // a frame for the server to catch up...

}
