when round restarts it goes back to 30 slots, WTG EA/DICE. its so amazing how a company can fuck up so much and still stay in business.

It does not set it to custom in my testing, as long as the link for "Use normal/hardcore/infantry" is clicked (which fixes any settings that are out of line).

The vars.preset at the end there should break it.

I recommend using the "Easy setup" page instead of an external tool to generate your Startup.txt.

Oh hell! This IS the "censored version" of my response . They break the damn admin vars presets... again and selfishly steal a few more hours of my time to be able to administrate this broken piece of ...

So should we have the refresh normal preset checked in easy setup? Or are we supposed to add all the normal options into the server startup.cfg?

Sorry i am confused.

If you clear out your config file you can start fresh. Select the link for normal settings. UNCHECK the box for Normal vars every 5 minutes. Restart your server. If you follow AnimOl's instructions, it will work unless you have some ticket plugin for procon. It worked for me.

Where is the link for normal settings? The only option with regards to normal that I see is the refresh normal every 5 minutes which I do have unchecked.

Nevermind, I found it. Super small red font at the top of additional settings

Right above the server options in blue. They set for normal, hardcore, and infantry. When you click them, it sets the server settings to that mode. You can also do this in procon.

yes, no luck. I had been using the procon normal setting. I have tried the link in easy setup too.

After applying normal I have to set spectators to 0, then on map change it reverts back to 4 spectators. wtg DICE..

Same here. We only paid for 36 slots on our Rush server. Dice forces Ranked Rush servers to have commanders so we went with 2 commanders and 2 spectators. Now we lost 2 playable slots due to this bug. Or is it a bug? John says it will be fixed with the next patch? The "bug" seems fishy to me. I think they just want to force us to play by their rules, ranked or official..
