Another bug in gt_lms, it is being initialized as a team game.

Hmm... I can't see why my code didn't work:
Code:
// make sure we have flags for CTF, etc
if( g_gametype.integer >= GT_TEAM && (g_ffa_gt!=1)) {
G_CheckTeamItems();
}
g_ffa_gt is set to 1 too late.

I have not thought about the original warmup but I should get some time too look at the code again in the beginning of January.

Still hoping someone can define to me what g_rockets does...but is there a way to disable falling damage too?

The only effect I can see from g_rockets is plenty of rockets and only rockets.

If self damage is off falling damage should be off too. Where are you experiencing falling damage?

I haven't looked into it too deeply and the suggested fix is only partial as it only works when gt_single_player is set to 1, otherwise gt_lms will initialize as a team game.

removing g_warmup makes lms single player inconsistent with the rest of the single player game modes, though.  It plays fine, its just not consistent.

g_ffa_gt is a variable introduced by me. I am testing against it in all the /code/game/*
There is cgs.ffa_gt in the code/cgame/* for the same reason

I set it to 1 if gametype is G_LMS. The idea was that if I ever want to add another FFA game it could be done fast in the game and cgame code.

I understand that.  Start a listen server in g_gametype ten, drop down the console and scroll up to Game Initialization:

Quote
------- Game Initialization -------
gamename: baseoa
gamedate: Dec  1 2007
Gametype changed, clearing session data.
2 teams with 4 entities
12 items registered
-----------------------------------

It should be 0 teams. 

If I can make a suggestion, it might be easier to move gt_lms to the highest game type, keep all new team gametypes lower in value and all new ffa games higher in value.  if ( game >= gt_team && game < gt_lms ) is easier to follow (especially in the ui's).

I'll look into it deeper later when I'm not so frustrated over the mess that is missionpack single player.  (I replaced id's hard coded mess with my own hard coded mess... but ffa, team deathmatch, and lms work in single player mode Smiley )

Well after some time with other things I found the code back this week and started making some changes.

I think I have made more changes but I must have left some of them on another computer, I will look after the missing code during easter.

New in Beta 14:
Match warmup in all the new gametypes
Weapons enabled during warmup and while waiting for players

Would you ever consider making an admin mod with unlagged code?

Just before I start on something else...

Beta 15:
Added "Auto join" to the classic join game menu. This automatically joins the weakest team (following the auto balance rule). (This was suggested by kick52)
Sending people to there death with knockback damage now counts as a kill.
Bots accepts orders in Double Domination again.

Wow, nice features. Are you eventually going to add admin mod style features, as previously mentioned in another thread, to make this the first OA GPL admin mod?

Or can all this -- including unlagged, and additional admin features -- be added to .8 release?

Beta 17 is up.

There are no new features this time, just bug fixes and some GUI enhancements.

Changelog:
You have taken/are tied for/lost the lead sounds playing in Last Man Standing
Fixed hanging bug in Last Man Standing
Last Man Standing scoring mode slecteble from the GUI
Removed GUI references to Punk Buster and CD key
Added "Always show weapon bar" to the Game Options
Added "Instant gib" and "All rockets" to the Start Server screen
Removed Friendly fire option in Elimination Games as it is ignored anyway (elimination_selfdamage = 2 should be used instead, but no GUI for that yet)
Double Domination default UI value can now be controlled using CVARS.

Thank you so much, this mod is gonna rock.

Removed Friendly fire option in Elimination Games as it is ignored anyway (elimination_selfdamage = 2 should be used instead, but no GUI for that yet)

Why not use the same "selfdamage" variable for all modes? and then just replace friendly fire with it in the GUI (providing it can be given the 3 options: OFF, SELF, TEAM). It would be neat to be able to deactivate self damage in any mode, not only Elimination.

EDIT: in fact I think most elimination_ cvars look good for any gamemode (why don't use g_warmup instead of elimination_warmup and have warmup for every mode?).

Well that is an idea that I might consider in the future, but the general rule is that the ordinary gametypes must play as usual by default.

About the warmup. elimination_warmup is the warmup time between rounds. g_warmup is warmup time before a match and that has always been for all gametypes. Since only elimiantion, ctf elimination and Last Man standing has rounds there are a good reason for two warmup CVARS.

Beta 19 is out. This is based on baseoa 0.7.6 with some modifications.

Changelog:
Instantgib and All rockets disabled during single player startup
Clears nextmap after single player
Beginning vote restriction
Smooth clients reverted to pre-unlagged
Collision detection reverted to 0.7.0
Logging fixed
Fixed com_sprintf overflows in the server list

I don't know if the reversion of the collision detections system solves the 0.2 seconds stuck bug as I cannot test it.

Smooth clients is hard to test too...

So download and see if the most annoying bugs has been solved.

Beta 21 is out

Changelog:
Based on 0.7.7
Most changes from B20 is not included!
Uses optimized collision detection again (like 0.7.7 but unlike B19 and B20)
Missionpack weapons useable in baseoa
One Flag Capture, Harvester and Obelisk avaieble in baseoa (although some gui elements are missing not to mention all models)
Bots should be slightly more inteligent in standard domination
The new gametypes now accepts elimination, ctfelimination, lms, dd and dom to be used in "gametype" parameter in map entities. However this breaks many 0.7.7 maps.
New way of showing domination point status in Double Domination (See screenshot)

Note:
The mine layer looks very simple and the nailgun non-existing. The Chaingun looks fine. All icons is missing. You might have slightly better luck with the SVN version.
Double Domination and CTF Elimination does no longer work in most 0.7.7 maps because the flags are not marked to appear in ctfelimination and dd.


Notice the A, B and timer just over the team scores.

To clarify this: You just disabled flags in double domination? So where do domination points spawn then? A new entity? Did you get my PM?

I got your pm. There is no new entity instead the game now recognizes the 'gametype' flag, so you can pick what gametypes uses the entities.

This is a correct flag entity that will only be used in ctf, one flag ctf, ctf elimination and Double Domination:


Current 0.7.7 maps lacks the 'ctfelimination' and 'dd' flags as they where not implemented.

If 'gametype' is missing the entity will be used in all games even Deathmatch.

'gametype' does not for location entities.

Excellent. This is a good idea for solving the problem. The maps I get my hands on will support this fopr next version.

Btw: Why not having this for location entities?
