/admin setgamemode cup and /admin setgamemode team.
For team mode, also look into the matchsave plugin.

Ok, so i first need to write /admin setgamemode cup and after that, /admin setgamemode team.

Then i need to write /admin res ?

And, how do i activate forced teams?

Could you explain a little better? :P


Thanks :)

Matchsave is intended to be used for scoring matches in Time Attack mode so that may not be, what you're looking for.
inactive, sorry

Team mode is the easiest.
I like the match save plugin and makes a nice webpage for double checking scores and such.
Word of warning, think through it carefully, especally scoring if you choose not to use the matchsve plugin or team mode..as you will run into conflicts if you don't set up scoring and how many people can race in concrete,

And yeah I know many peoiple will say duh.. but lets say you decide rounds 8 tracks. Best of 8 wins.
It is the team that wins 5 tracks?
Do you add the scores of each track and say the one with the highest score wins?
as the team that only won 3 tracks could actually have more points if it was a blow out on those three tracks and really cose ont he five tracks they lost.

You can use one or the other, depending on which game mode you'd like to race in.

Yes, or /admin next, as the mode change is only effective after loading a new track or reloading the current one.

Use a matchsettings file to adjust the points limit, if necessary. You can load it via /admin readtracklist.
Sceptic wrote:And, how do i activate forced teams?
I think in team mode every player is automatically part of either Blue or Red team. There is however a new ForcePlayerTeam method to change a player's team, I'll add a new admin command in v0.99 to use that.

Oh, I wasn't aware of that. So ignore that plugin then.

Thanks for the help.


I agree, team mode is the best. But the scores reset every time the map change.

In cup mode, the scores stay all rounds.

But can some of you just tell me how i should do it? Talk to me like you are teaching youre mom.

Hehe :)
And i just edit the settings.txt file for maps and settings (cup, team, etc).

Only until the <cup_pointslimit> and <cup_nbwinners> criteria from your matchsettings file are reached, then Cup mode starts over again too.
But Cup mode doesn't automatically keep track of teams, that's what you need Team mode for. It's your choice which one you use, but both together is not possible.

Method for setting up a cup server for clan matches.

What is the most common method? Cup? Team? More than one map? Scores? Etc.

Most common is the following:
3 Tracks, Team mode, pointlimit = 7, maxpoints = the number of players playing, alternate rules on.

The team that wins 2 tracks wins.
