Installing UT2Vote59

UT2Vote comes as a complete package to the Admin, and needs to be installed correctly for everything to function properly, although if you do not have any extras the default setup should suffice.

The following files need to go in the UT2004 System folder:

UT2Vote59.ini.lix - (for Linux only)

UT2Vote59 needs to be added as the only Mutator in your Server startup commandline as UT2Vote handles all the mutators once it is loaded, so its best to not have any commands in start up except multihome if needed or specifying ini= or as some server companys insist maxplayers= as UT2Vote takes over the command options.

Single Server
ucc server CTF-Maul?Game=xGame.xCTFGame?Mutator=UT2Vote59.UT2VoteX etc..

Multi Servers
ucc server CTF-Maul?Game=xGame.xCTFGame?Mutator=UT2Vote59.UT2VoteXMulti etc..

The Multiserver system will create new configs in the Server.ini file or the configs can be copied and pasted from the UT2VoteXMulti.txt file.

You also need to add UT2Vote59 as a Serverpackage in the servers UT2004.ini file although UT2Vote59 will add itself now if it cannot find itself in the Serverpackages.


Brief Setup

UT2Vote requires this information to be entered at the following places:

Mutators that will be common to ALL games must go in here.
These mutators will apply to ALL games ALL the time EXCEPT in a ClanMatch.
Basically the Mutators that you would normal add in the Startup commandline, should now go here
For example:
Note: A Mutators ClassName can be found in the .ucl file supplied with the mutator.
Should you require the Mutators to be more flexible, it would be better to add them in the Mutators= section in the GameType= strings instead of here.

Any commandline commands that you need for all games should go here, for example:
Any commands entered here will take priority and over ride the GameType Commands=
Like the ServerMuts, these commands will apply to ALL games ALL of the time EXCEPT during a ClanMatch.

This is the Main Admin password and will give this Admin full rights to accessing anything in UT2Vote.
This password is for Clan Leaders who can setup the server for a dedicated ClanMatch.
This Admin will not have access to the general Admin settings of the server.

If the Games on your server requires ALL players to logon with a Game Password, that password should be entered here.

Whatever you choose to be your Server DefaultGame needs to be entered here.
If you leave it blank, UT2Vote will enter the game from which your Server first starts up in.

DefaultGameName=Capture the Flag

When players have all left your server and it is not in a default state, UT2Vote will switch your server to this Default Game State.
When UT2Vote first starts when your server starts, this game and its DefaultMap will be loaded.

Enter the name of your server here. Although UT2Vote can change this ingame, should there be an error, it will default back to this name.

You are now ready to startup your Server.

Once your server is running, join the Game and login as Admin:

Mutate UT2VoteLogin (the VoteAdminPass)
Press the Map Menu Hotkey (normally set on the ScrolLock and/or Home Key) and once the menu is up, click on the Admin button and you will start seeing the world at your fingertips.

NB.. Almost all Admin changes will need a level restart.
