L4D, NO LOBBY, CUSTOM MAPS

Post by STATEOFMISERY » Thu Dec 21, 2017 8:00 pm

I CAN'T ACCESS MORE THAN ONE CUSTOM AT A TIME.
LET ME BE CLEAR. THEY ALL WORK ON MY NFO SERVER.
I JUST CAN ONLY PUT THEM ONE AT A TIME, INTO THE MAP CYCLE / STARTING MAP SLOT. THEN WHEN I START MY SERVER, IN STEAM, UNDER FAVORITES, WITH A PASSWORD ( IT IS A PRIVATE SERVER. WOULD THIS MAKE A DIFFERENCE ? )
I LOG INTO MY SERVER, MY CUSTOM MAP STARTS. ONCE IT IS STARTED, I HAVE TRIED TO CHANGE MAPS / CAMPAIGNS. NO LUCK. THERE IS NO PROVISION IN THE MENU TO START A NEW CAMPAIGN, OTHER THAN STOCK L4D MAPS. I'VE EVEN TRIED THE CONSOLE WITH ( map l4d_city17_01 ). IT ONLY CHANGES TO A LOCAL SERVER ON MY COMPUTER FOR THAT CUSTOM MAP. NOW I CAN PUT IT INTO THE MAP CYCLE / STARTING MAP SLOT, ON THE NFO SERVER. BUT, THEN I HAVE TO COMMIT CHANGES, START / STOP SERVER. THEN EVERYBODY ( IF THEY HAVEN'T GOTTEN BORED BY THEN AND GONE TO SLEEP, OR SAID F#$k IT AND LEFT. ) WHY THEN WE CAN RESTART THE SERVER, EVERYBODY GETS TO PUT THEIR PASSWORD IN AND WE GET TO START. QUITE A BIT OF TIME HAS PASSED, THOUGH. NOW THE TECHS OVER AT NFO, ARE GETTING PRETTY FED UP WITH ME. MY FRIENDS WHO WANT TO PLAY ON A SERVER SO THAT ( WE DON'T GET SPAMMERS, GRIEFERS & HIGH PING ) ARE GETTING PRETTY UPSET WITH ME AND NFO. BUT, I DON'T KNOW DIDDLY SQUAT ABOUIT SETTING UP A GAME SERVER.

So you come here to yell at us and to tell us your friends are upset with you AND with NFO because YOU don't know how to run a server? I personally have no interest in helping someone that comes to the forums and appears to be yelling. I highly doubt anyone at NFO is getting fed up with you, unless you are yelling at them as you are at us.

Perhaps using proper forum/support ticket etiquette would be a good start? This would include not using a caps lock key to say everything, proper grammar with good sentence structure laying out exactly what the problem is and what you have done thus far to resolve it. A copy of your logs and command line would be helpful. Is this a managed or un-managed server?

I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN BY YELLING? ARE YOU REFERRING TO ME USING ALL CAPS? AS I'VE SAID BEFORE & I'LL SAY IT AGAIN & AGAIN & AGAIN. I HAVE VISION PROBLEMS. YOU GOT A PROBLEM WITH THAT? TAKE IT UP WITH GOD.
