    Exclamation Free Dedicated Server Hanging on Map, is yours?

    I built a new server and its the free deicated windows one, 2225.
    I have UT2vote16 on it and I think that may be the problem. I going to take it off.

    Anyways..After one map is done(only sometimes this happens) you pick another map from mapvote and it just hangs and gives you a connection failed message.

    This happens during the day at odd times.
    I just switch the map manually and ALL IS FINE.
    Then it will work great for hours and hours.

    I get all these level server recieved: GAMESTATE 2375678056hg123876568923 in log
    and
    HAVE GUID C89234589FHG780680760HJH

    also.

    Is this Gamespy crap?

    I did change
    UPLINKTOGAMESPY=False
    BehindNat=True
    but then this morning I noticed it switched back to defualt's.
    Hmmmmmmmmm.....

    Thanks

    frogger187:
    I use Norton's Ghost to backup NTFS partition to a Fat32 partition so restoring the C: drive is not a problem, takes about 5 minutes.
    I would suggest you do something like this also.

    Well I just removed Mapvote16 and set it up to auto change maps as so defined in ut2003.ini.

    I will test it like this for a day or two.

    I could not go for a solid day without having to change map manually to get server unstuck.

    So far so Good.

    PS I will try mapvote4.00b11 next.

    thanks for replies....I am running Mapvoteb11 right now. I don't think it is a map vote issue. It's like the server is checking with the master server and can't get a reply...but I don't know..I have not formatted yet..hoping it is an issue beyond my connection.. will keep you posted on anything I find out..

    Sprocket..my problems have gone away..i did nothing to resolve it. I am blaming it on Raod Runner right now...nothing else can explain it...has happended in the past..guess they just do service in the area once in a while and prevent me from keeping a constant connection to master server..hope your issues dissipate as well..

    All is well with my server also. But I did a couple of things to resolve. For one I renamed my problem maps and re-installed them. That issue fixed. Took ut2vote16 off and now using ut2votesim4 and all is well. what a little nice mapvote, it doesnt mess w/ mut's either. I will probably try mapvote4b11 sometime but for now Im just adding maps. All mods done. More people showing up on server.
    Its named **HardCoRe..Rapid.Fire..Shotgun & Sniper.Rifle..**
    Something like that.
    Thanks for your help though frogger, I will email you later.
