Matchmaking Servers
Matchmaking places clients in servers using the playlist system, a guide for this can be found here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=461776759

Will having a reserved slot mess this up?
JohnMcB  [developer] Jan 27, 2014 @ 8:15am 
We don't want servers with reserved slots being entered into the matchmaking pool as this could potentially match players to seemingly available servers and then reject them.

Exactly why I asked :B1:

Thanks.

It's also good to note that matchmaking doesn't aim to fill servers completely, it tries to fill them to around ~60% player capacity so there's still remaining slots for clients connecting through the server browser, following friends etc.

That's cool. That's a good way of doing it. Friends do like to follow each other around :rbiggrin:

So if it fills to ~60% player capacity, a reserve slot would technically not mess anything up, right? I'll leave the matchmaking turned off, I'm just curious.

It ideally wants a server to be around 60% before it stops matchmaking but it's still going to try and place players in the server if there's no other servers available with a reasonable ping.

Gotcha, thanks.

Will you be adding more playlists ? because I had a skirmish only server before update. If I understand it correctly in the mean time there is no way to make a skirmish only server and be a part of a matchmaking system ?

Also when is the mm_playlist.txt executed ? (mainly the cvar section)
Thank you,

We're considering 24/7 playlists of specific modes but no news to share on that just yet, there is no current way to make a 24/7 playlist and still be registered for matchmaking.

CVars in mm_playlist are executed before server.cfg and server_[gamemode].cfg.

can I alter the mapcycle for this? For example the tactical operaitons one, change the order, remove map/mod combos as long as it is always firefight/vip/search and destroy? Also is it okay to change the nextmap or current map through rcon commands or would that mess it up?
JohnMcB  [developer] Feb 1, 2014 @ 9:58pm 
matchmaking servers by design have a strict playlist and this can't be altered, changing to a map not on the playlist will either reset or remove the playlist from your server until the command is ran again.

okay. The reason I ask, is I've been encountering a weird bug. Where it gets nearly through the playlist, but right before it goes to contact VIP (3rd from bottom) after Ministry Firefight, when it returns to district firefight, anytime after that it issues a changelevel command to go back to district. When that happens, it kicks everyone and I have to restart to fix it as it keeps issuing a changelevel command to go back to district.
00 . district : 2m ago : 1m
01. contact : 2m ago : 3s : changelevel Command
02. district : 11m ago : 9m : Normal level change
03. market : 21m ago : 10m : Normal level change

I am running sourcemods and metamod but not that much else. I have no idea why it is doing this.

I had something similar.

We were playing district firefight, and when it changed to contact vip everyone got disconnected. The server log just said that the clients disconnected.
Upon rejoining, we were back to district firefight, and the same thing happened again.
When we loaded into district for the 3rd time, I manually changed the map to get around this, but if no admin is around it's gonna be annoying for everyone on the server.

I am running SM and MM, latest dev snapshots.
