So, I finally got my server up and running, even getting couple of people play in it, my server crashes. I have no idea whats causing it, usually when I leave for school I leave the server running on a screen and when I come back from school, the server has crashed.

I cannot input any commands, and I cant write anything on the command line. I have to kill the screen and start the server again.

Any ideas whats making this happen? Could it have something to do with screen? And if so is there any alternative solutions where I could run the server without having to have the cmd prompt on all the time?
the screen should be fine, I cannot imagine the problem being there. if you want to try, you can run the server with nohup and an &, e.g.:
nohup ./srcds_run <options> &
but then you won't be able to gain control of the server console.

maybe one of your maps is broken? or you have some strange setting? easiest way to find out is try a fresh installation without any change (only rcon password and server name may be changed, no settings, no maps). (Linux Kernel HOWTO!)

Ok I have found the problem on one of your threads in this forum.

Maps must have a info_observer_point entity on them or it crashes the servers when all players die because it's forcing spectators to an unknown location.

I have no idea how to solve this problem, any ideas on what to do?
Alright found the solution. For any people who have the same problem, download this plugin and install it in ../tf/addons/sourcemod/plugins/. I didnt have these folders as default so I had to make them.
I wish to thank you eskimobob for not only researching and identifying a solution to this issue, but for actually posting the info here for others to benefit from. I have been dealing with this problem for weeks and knew it was a map issue but had no idea how to fix it.

Because you took the extra few minutes to post your findings, your still helping people like me a year later. If only everyone else did this, this site would have far clutter from BS threads that simply say "I fixed my problem" without telling anyone else what they did. That drives me nuts!

Take care and thanks again. You made my day...
