UPDATE :

so i had the time this week-end to play a bit and to tweak my server.

here's where i am :

i've installed a forum and a new chat (working and cool)
i tweaked the oa server cfg
i upgraded my server to oa .85 patch
and most of all :

i opened 5 ( five ) servers !

oa.akatsuki.ro:27960 insta rail ctf
oa.akatsuki.ro:27961 insta rail 1v1 (tournament)
oa.akatsuki.ro:27962 insta rail ffa (free for all)
oa.akatsuki.ro:27963 all weps frz (yeah the old freeze tag!!!)
oa.akatsuki.ro:27964 insta rail tdm (uFreeze + rail jump!!!)

i've also updated the posts on the site about the server configs
i've posted some msg's on the server and
i've built an oa latest package with autodownloading enabled for windows users

the package is available for download at

http://oa.akatsuki.ro/openarena.exe

the "install" does NOT need admin rights on win pc's
the "install" puts a shortcut on user's desktop
the "install" is the latest oa 0.8.5
the "install" is an sfx 7zip archive (in this way, i can automatically extract the game in %userprofile% and place a shortcut on the desktop with a customized icon)

hope to see ya arround at http://oa.akatsuki.ro/ and have some old-time quality fun toghether  on akatsuki servers Smiley

ps - i'm working on an automated calendar so the clans can book the servers for wars Wink

* Serveur Dell XS11-VX8
* Processeur Via Nano U2250 1x 1,60GHz
* 2 Go DDR2 de mémoire
* 160 Go de stockage
* Connexion 1Gbit/sec


Well, my new server is up and running as expected.
After some headaches I finally came up with the config I wanted.

The default map-cycle I've come up with is:
oasago2, ps9ctf, ps37ctf2, oa_reptctf11, oa_ctf2

The other native maps that the players can callvote for:
hydronex (/callvote custom map_hydro)
this map reminds me of a q3arena ctf map (don't remember the name) wich I used to play some years ago
oa_bases3 (/callvote custom map_bases)
well, I find this map cooler than the other usual base-off map we use to play and wich - I belive - comes from the OSP map pack
oa_spirit3 (/callvote custom map_spirit)
thi map is zen. nice textures, well done. it just invites to fun

The custom maps that users can vote for are 5:
1) BubCtf1 (space, face-off bases)
2) DK_CTF3IU (indoors, suspended cross-roads between the bases)
3) LetGo_01 (inside a lego-like structure with a glass between the oposite flags)
4) LetGo_02 (another lego-like map, really-really cool)
5) UT_Subway (besides the 10M size, this map is WoW!)

But don't worry about the custom maps, they are all available in free download.
You can google for them, or you can obtain a copy either in-game with auto-download on or directly on my site at http://akatsuki.ro/oa/baseoa/

Speaking about auto-download, I will give some tech speach now.
I have two servers, so I hosted the map on the 2nd. In this way the downloading does not interfere with the play.
The nix.akatsuki.ro is a pure server with 14 slots, 12 open and 2 private (with password) so I can join the fun even when the server is full.
There are 2 important aspects about this server:
1st, the server's internet connexion rocks: is a 1Gb symmetric fiber! that means 1Gb upload, 1Gb download Cheesy
2nd, the callvotes/maps. I've set up a configuration with custom votes so the voting does not interfere with the usual server map cycle as I've seen on many OA servers.
This even allows players (just in case) to in-game restore the default cycle with the command: /callvote cusom map_restore.
Anyways, after a custom map is played, the server automatically falls-back on default cycle.

If you want, you can check-up my config at http://akatsuki.ro/oa/

Can't look forward to see you in so I can kick the dust out of your asses! Have fun you all!

Hiya, welcome here.

I believe you're french speaker, did you help yourself with the documentation on openarena.tuxfamily.org ? On some servers I use a setup similar to yours concerning map rotation and restoration by custom votes.
Seems quite good, congrats Wink

Hi,

yes, tuxfamily was a great help. and yes, i speak french.

well, i play oa since q1, passing by q2 (havecourse), q3(my great love) and q4.
i'm no noob in servers, i'm a programmer, and this is only the first time in last 3 years that i set up a server the way i like-it.

and the hard point was this, to get-it the way i want. i tested some oa mods, i've tried the osp since i'm nostalgic, but finally this cfg seems right.

in my quest for the perfect server i started from tuxfamily, pased by oa wiki, peered into some mods cfg files and finaly, this is it!

what i'm most surprized of is that is hard to find some already working configs for each server type to start from. i did-it from scratch. what would have really helped me, was a rail cfg & a ctf cfg. but nowhere to find just to copy/paste. i would have imagined some Server Config Section with CTF, TDM etc, Rail CTF, Rocket TDM etc downloadable configs.

anyways, i've put my cfg online, my mail is public, i'm happy to help and i've allready gived some feedback to some users.
most important, as usual, have fun!

PS- thank you for welcoming me

If you want to publish an example configuration with specific options (like a particular game style, a map rotation script with small maps only or with space maps only), you could use DO NOT LINK[/b]) h t t p s : / / openarena . wikia . com/wiki/Configuration_examples]"Configuration examples" page on the wiki...

Simple suggestion: Wouldn't a .zip file be more convenient (and more cross-platform friendly) ?

well,

i can also make a zip.

but the zip does not put a shortcut on the desktop and even less uses a custom icon :S

the .exe is in fact an sfx 7zip with extraction path in %userprofile% + the shortcut on the desktop
