Rotating Maps

From BZFlagWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The scripts below can be used to have a server that rotates through specified maps every time it is restarted. Only use the scripts for your OS or they will not work. More information about map rotation scripts can be found here on the BZBB.

Windows[edit]

Copy and the script below into notepad and save it as start-server.bat.

All paths should be in 8.3 notation e.g. progra~1 not program files

Don't forget to add -g and -time <secs> to your config files.

Press CTRL-C twice and "y" to answer "Terminate Batch Job (y/n)?" to exit.

You will probably need to edit the paths to the bzfs binary and your configuration files.

You should have all your config files in the same directory as you specified in the script.

To run the server, you just need to double-click on start-server.bat.

@ECHO OFF

BREAK ON

SET BZFSPATH=c:\progra~1\bzflag~1.2\bzfs.exe

IF "%1" == "" SET CONFDIR=c:\your\path\to\conf\files

IF NOT "%1" == "" SET CONFDIR=%1


:loop_top

ECHO.

FOR %%b IN (%CONFDIR%\*.conf) DO %BZFSPATH% -conf %%b

ECHO "Reached end of rotation, starting over.


GOTO loop_top


POSIX Shell (Mac OS X, Linux, BSD, IRIX, etc)[edit]

Save the script below as rotate.sh

Put all your config files in the CONFIGPATH directory.

After editing the CONFIGPATH and path to bzfs, type chmod a+x rotate.sh and then ./rotate.sh to run the script.

#!/bin/sh

if [ $1 ] ; then
  CONFIGPATH=$1   
else
  CONFIGPATH="/your/path/to/configfiles"
fi
cd $CONFIGPATH || echo "$CONFIGPATH not found"

BZFSPATH=/usr/local/bin/bzfs

abort=0
while [ $abort -eq 0 ]; do
  for b in *.conf ; do
    $BZFSPATH -conf $b
    if [ $? -ne 0 ] ; then
      abort=1
      break
    fi
  done
  echo "Reached end of rotation, starting over."
done
