Procon included Plugins and maps missing?

Question

Hi again Everyone,

My Clan and I recently started up a BF4 server, and are using Procon to add plugins and administrate the server.  Although, we've hit a snag. I'm not sure if we have all of the plugins that are intended to be included in the Procon.zip file we got from here. The plugins that were installed in this version procon (1.5.1.1), when I first ran and successfully connected it to our server are:

Spambot
In-Game Admin
Basic In-Game Info

I thought that it was supposed to have more preloaded, I may be wrong, but last night I tried a very common command:

!map MP_Siege0 1 

Made sure the map was in the active maplist, in both the plugin and in the maplist.txt config file on the server before attemping the command. Upon exec, I got nothing not even an error response. I of course tried to look up the correct syntax, and parameters for this specific command, and tried tons of variations, only to figure out that the command just isn't working...

Also, we noticed that all of the maps starting with XP5 and XP6 are missing from the available maplist that you use to fill your active maplist in the 'list' tab. There may be more maps missing, I just don't know it.. I noticed this because of a request from my clannies to change the current map to Operation Outbreak, mapname: XP6_CMP, and could not locate it in the list to add to the maplist.

I realize that with the OG procon sites going under, there was a scramble to get everything, and that you guys are rebuilding things mostly from scratch. We think that is very commendable, and you all have our respect. We would like to submit our clan server, and myself to help with any troubleshooting, and or, guinea pigging, in order to fix this type of stuff for future users of the tool. Just let me know what you need to know, or what you need me to do to troubleshoot.

I have a pre-downloaded install. I'm attaching a zip of the Map data. Hopefully that fixes it?

 

procon_files.zip

 

Drag/drop overwrite on existing procon structure.

@ColColonCleaner, do you remember if the BF4 definition files were auto downloaded?

They were not automatically downloaded. You needed to pull in new versions manually.
 

This could be a problem because the 1.5.1.1 version download is definitely outdated in regard to the def files.

We should query the BF4DB discord for people to post their BF4.def files to check which ones are the latest version and i'll push that up to the repo.

Overwrote the files, restarted Procon, and the mapnames  list still ends with the XP4_ maps, there isn't anymore after, a bunch still missing.. 

 


PS I have to go do something. I'll be back on it in an hour or so..

Okay, I'm back, thanks again for the maps fix. 

!map <mapname>

 

So is this a command that should be able to be used in-game to change the map to a specific map from the active maplist? Do I have the syntax right or are there more parameters that need to be in the command for it to word? Because it doesn't work for me in our server...

If a plugin supports the map change command then it should work. Not sure which ones do it off the top of my head.

Like in every forums I find.. This command should work with the base procon plugins but it doesn't. If it's not part of the procon default plugs, then which one is it? Thats a good command, cause otherwise you have to type !nextlevel until you get through all of the rounds set in the mapslist, in the rotation order, until you get to the map you want.. Sucks bad. but for the sake of arguement, I'll list all of the plugins I have installed:

Adkats

Procon Chat, GUID, Stats and Map Logger

BF4DB

Basic In-Game Info
In-Game Admin
Spambot

 

I thought there were a lot more of 'good plugins' that pretty much all the BF4 servers are using..

 

Is there a list somewhere of all the available plugins that are compatible with procon?

Disable that, In-Game Admin, AdKats is a full fledged admin tool. It could be conflicting with something. I believe one of the other plugins in the old plugins thread (can't remember the name atm) was used for map rotation, which had the command available.

I'm not even sure how he's able to start up the base in-game admin with AdKats running. When AdKats starts it automatically disables the other admin tool to make sure things don't conflict.

 

If you are really looking for a full fledged map manager then ultiimate map manager is what you're looking for. That plugin handles basically everything you could want.

Alright, I've downloaded and installed the plugin Ultimate Map Manager. It does give options that we absolutely wanted so, thanks a bunch. However, it doesn't provide the ability to change the server to a specific map, and the problem of having to 'sift' through multiple rounds of multiple maps just to change the current map to one you want, still exists. In other words this plugin doesn't supply the command :

!map <mapname>

 

Also, yes you are correct, adkats turns off In-Game Admin before it loads itself, so it has been off, so that wasn't issue with !map not working. I just don't think our procon has whatever plugin does the command we're lookin for. Any other ideas which one it may be?

Does it give you an error message? Either in game or on procon itself?

For what it's worth, you can go to the List tab within Procon, click on Maps and just double-click the map you want to run. Votemap is a cool plugin to grab also so people can vote on what they like and you can get a feel of the maps that everyone likes.

    • Hi All,

      So I've been thinking about doing something like this for a while but I always talked myself out of it. I want to get some feedback on this idea and how many would think about using it if it was offered.

      In the past I know how hard it was for some users to get a MySQL database going and running the BFACP (since it's a bit requirement heavy in some cases). What I would be doing is offering to manage both of these for you.

      If enough interest was shown in something like this I would definitely think about doing it. Of course, I also know the risks I would be taking in something like this, but to list what I would be offering I guess is this.

      MySQL Hosting


      Daily backups of the database to a remote site & option to download it yourself.


      No limit on how big your database can be (within reason).




      BFACP Hosting (If running AdKats on your layers)


      This would run the newest version (v3.0)


      Will still be available to run on your own hardware


      Will have extra features that are not available for an open source setup (still need to think of good things )


      Able to use your own domain name with the proper DNS setup.




      Both Above



      Please let me know what you think of this idea and vote in the poll. Again not confirming anything like this will happen but if I get enough interest from the community for something like this then please let me know.

      Disclaimer: This will NOT be something affiliated with MyRCON but will be ran through it in terms of a payment processor.
