TF2 Map won't change without a player present
I setup a TF2 server the other day to compliment my Fortress Forever server, and I'm having a bit of an issue.

If no one is in the server, then the map won't change. When someone joins the game, the waiting for players countdown starts. As soon as the countdown ends a Stalemate is declared and the map immediately changes to the next in the mapcycle.

So it seems to be recognizing the mp_timelimit but...I don't know.

Here's my server.cfg it's kinda hacked together, though all I did was add commands which I knew what they did to the default one provided by my host, and reorganize it. Though their config files have been lacking in the past, so maybe something is missing?

I did just install Beetle's Mod as you can see, however this issue was present before I installed it.
You don't need "exec beetlesmod.cfg" in your server.cfg
In fact you SHOULD NOT have it in there, so remove it.

My recommendation is that BM has an emptyserver command where you can trigger something when the server is empty. Trigger a map change. Then when you join you always have a "fresh load"

Well I'm not sticking with BM, I had just installed it to see what it was like. I'm using SourceMod now because of it's flexible plugin system.

Either way, I'd much rather prefer that TF2 itself handles this completely. This shouldn't be happening, and I want to know why it is! Smile
try this 3rd part plugin.
it will rotate maps if no one is playing.
Well I was hoping to fix this at the TF2 level, but thats a really nice plugin so I'll just use that. Thanks!
