hello!

the first step was taken - my own GE:S ded server runs, but i've a few question.

first i searched the web about my questions, and found this useful how-tos:

http://wiki.geshl2.com/index.php/GE:S_v4.1_Server_Install
http://planethalflife.gamespy.com/View.php?view=HL2Guides.Detail&id=4&game=3
http://wiki.geshl2.com/index.php/Install_GoldenEye:_Source#Dedicated_Server


but i have a few questions:

- a few bots questions:
+ is it possible to add bots to the server? i don't found the command. is it ges_bot or ges_add_bot? and where i have to paste the command? server.cfg? server_normal.cfg?
+ is it possible to change the level of the bots?
+ if it possible to add bots: where i have to add the bot-commands?


- i still get a few errors if i started my server:
+ invalid gametype Arsenal (this gametype was there before i changed anything)
+ solid_vphysics static prob with no vphysics model (models/props/facility/duct_lighz01a.mdl)
+ exec: couldn't exec skill_manifest.cfg

- i've found a batch-file that allows a auto-restart if the server would crash, but i don't found it anyway. i still remember it was with batch-loop-command
- how can i change the weapon-set or is it only random? is there a txt-file like mapchanges.txt or gameplaycycle.txt. i want to change it to various self-choosen weapon-sets.
- does the server restart automatic after all maps of the mapchanges.txt are played? if not, how can i changed it?
- are there some other important wikis than the three that i already founded?


thanks a lot!

greetings from austria :-)

- a few bots questions:
+ is it possible to add bots to the server? i don't found the command. is it ges_bot or ges_add_bot? and where i have to paste the command? server.cfg?

Take a look at Valve.rc

+ invalid gametype Arsenal (this gametype was there before i changed anything)

The mode was going to be included in 4.2 but was taken out.  You can download it here:

- how can i change the weapon-set or is it only random? is there a txt-file like mapchanges.txt or gameplaycycle.txt. i want to change it to various self-choosen weapon-sets.

ge_weaponset (set). If you want random weapon sets, put ge_weaponset random_loadout in your server.cfg.  For your map cycle, it's mapcycle.txt and for your gameplaycycle it's gameplaycycle.txt.  You can change the way the server cycle's through the gameplays by changing ge_gameplay_mode. 0 is same gameplay, 1 is random, 2 is in order.

- does the server restart automatic after all maps of the mapchanges.txt are played? if not, how can i changed it?

No it doesn't.  You'll need to install sourcemod and install the crontab plugin.

- are there some other important wikis than the three that i already founded?

thx for the answer! and thanks for the wikis :-)

have installed sourcemod and the crontab plugin. it's running fine and i'm just testing some options, is there a also an important wiki?

have added this in the sc_jobs.cfg:
// Reboot the server everyday of the week at 5am
sc_addjob ? ? 5 5 0 1 "quit"

// Set the map rotation to mapcycle.txt everyday.
// Starting at 1am and ending at 7pm
sc_addjob ? ? ? ? ? ? "mapcyclefile mapcycle.txt"

where i have to copy the mapcycle.txt? at the moment it's located on the original location: orangebox\gesource
my plan is that the server reboot daily and always load the mapcycle.txt if its finished.

the bot problem:

i cannot add bots to my server. i'm playing facility official. have checked the valve.rc as you told me. this are my changes:

// Set this to control the number of bots in your server.
// The server will fill up with bots until this number of players
// are currently playing. (Use 0 to disable and allow ge_bot commands)
ge_bot_threshold 1

// Ai Difficulty [0-9]
ge_bot_difficulty 6

but nothing happens.

anybody have an idea?


btw. i also get this errors:
+ solid_vphysics static prob with no vphysics model (models/props/facility/duct_lighz01a.mdl)
+ exec: couldn't exec skill_manifest.cfg

// Starting at 1am and ending at 7pm
sc_addjob ? ? ? ? ? ? "mapcyclefile mapcycle.txt"

I see that you are setting this cycle from 1am - 7pm.  Are you planning on using another file for the time remaining?

where i have to copy the mapcycle.txt? at the moment it's located on the original location: orangebox\gesource

Correct location.

// Set this to control the number of bots in your server.
// The server will fill up with bots until this number of players
// are currently playing. (Use 0 to disable and allow ge_bot commands)
ge_bot_threshold 1

The reason your bots are not working is because it takes into account the current player(s) + bots.  You have it set to 1.  This means, when you join the game, it will not spawn any bots.

btw. i also get this errors:
+ solid_vphysics static prob with no vphysics model (models/props/facility/duct_lighz01a.mdl)
+ exec: couldn't exec skill_manifest.cfg

I cannot help you with these.  They are a GE:S problem.

Ignore the errors in the last part, they aren't affecting anything.

Troy, thanks for the great answers!
