Hey all,

I got sick of manually typing list of maps for my Openarena server, especially tracking all the numbers! So I sat down for half an hour and created a simple tool to generate that list!

Knowing that fromhell drools over opensource software and GPL, I licensed the tool as such :D


* Reliably generate a map list
* Start from any number, not just 0
* Increment numbers by 5 if you'd like (useful if you're inserting more maps in between later)

Here it is:

I'll also post the source code below in case my server goes down:
if (!empty($_REQUEST['source']))
   <title>Openarena Map List Generator</title>
[<a href="/">home</a>]

<b>Openarena Map List Generator</b>

   Put your list of maps in the textbox below, one map per line. Click submit, and you'll get a list of maps ready to go
into maps.cfg for your Openarena server. Also works for any Quake 3 or ioquake3 based games. Enjoy!

   <b>*Note:</b> <i>No more than 150 entries allowed, and each entry will be cut off at 50 characters!</i>

   <b>*Note:</b> <i>You can also <a target="_blank" href="<?php echo $PHP_SELF "?source=1"?>">view source</a> of this tool!</i>

<form method="post" action="<?php echo $PHP_SELF?>">
<textarea name="maps" cols="80" rows="20"><?php echo htmlspecialchars($_REQUEST['maps']); ?></textarea>
(optional) start count at: <input type="text" name="start" value="<?php echo (empty($_REQUEST['start'])) ? htmlspecialchars($_REQUEST['start']); 
"></input> (0 - 1000)
(optional) skip 5 numbers each count: <input type="checkbox" name="skip" value="surewhynot"<?php echo (isset($_REQUEST['skip'])) ? ' checked="checked"' ' '?>></input>
<input type="submit" value=" Submit "></input>



    Purpose: Generate a map configuration file for a server running a

printf("\nwait\n\nvstr m%04d"$start_at);
