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.
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)
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
