Gamemode Switcher
« on: January 28, 2009, 03:26:03 PM »
Hi guys, I was wondering if you could make a gamemode switcher for me. I want it to change the gamemode and map at a specific time and date.
Ex. When it's Tuesday the mod changes the server to DarkRP and to the map OMG_City_Final
then when it's Friday the mod changes the server to Sandbox and goes to the Gm_Flatgrass.

Will one of you make this for me plz?  ;D
:) Alex T. :)

Hi Alex,
Though not a 'all in one' solution, SpBogie's 'UMaps', combined with ULX's ability to set cfg/maps/<mapname>.ini files should be able to do what you want.
Use UMaps to change the maps at certain times. Use the <mapname>.ini to set gamemodes and settings.
In theory, should work.

Ok, I did that with the command "sv_gamemode" but when UMaps changes the map the gamemode doesn't change. Can you help?

Are you placing a file in cfg/maps/<mapname no .bsp>.ini
You would need an ini file for every map you had that you wanted to use that gamemode.
So, say you have a gamemode named I_Know_Jack
You have two maps. IKJ_1.bsp and IKJ_2.bsp

In your server cfg folder, you'd create a folder named maps
in gmod/cfg/maps, you'd create two text files, one named IKJ_1.ini and one named IKJ_2.ini
Inside each file you'd put sv_gamemode "I_Know_Jack"

Apparently it doesn't work on a listen sever.  :-\ So I'm going to wait for dedicated server then test it. Thanks Jam.
