Make note of which map and what time of the crash? Also keep in mind the server does reset every 24hrs.

Also if is possible take a screenshot of the map if crash during downloading and when the error message appears, that will help a lot too

Why not use the mapvote option for listed or remove crash maps

Another question is why not reading log files trying to figure which map is bad or doesn't have all required files to run.

Those have to be deleted not listed.

For the moment I do not have access to log file because it's used by server and locked. After restart/crash I will get it.
Let me see... if player spawns into void because mapper "need" a playerstart over there, of course player is eliminated and even might crash as long as has no place to join. Poorly done maps... you can take in account that <godless> is not whining maps because water is a liquid, but because some of those maps as designed as they are and just cheap junks -> HOM effects, distances too high for UE rendering system, PlayerStarts unusable, etc.
For PlayerStart badly messed up perhaps NavAdder can do something if map name is not crapped into a malformed name - for no reason of course, else it should be edited properly. Aside anyone can uncache map somewhere and contact author for describing problem. If author will forget to answer, we can go for fix it or tweaking if possible...

But I can quote an old log. Watch this mess:

I suppose these are maps...
Perhaps I have to try writing some tool attempting to move such an actor over a PathNode or another start if spot is permitting, else... K.O.

Fascinating is that server is not crashing so often as it does damage to game and players because of these amazing things. But, if it's fun, then we have to allow player to vote if these are great for them... Someday maybe they will get tired of being crashed and will stop voting dumb maps.

To bump here.
In order to have a mitigation, I think I have to forget idea to patch these maps separately, maybe writing an unique XC_ServerActor and simply DELETING any PlayerStart from void because XC_Engine can solve some problems without breaking navigation. "FindPlayerStart" used by XC_Engine is expanding Spawning locations (good only for maps with valid placement of PlayerStart actors) but it doesn't take in account The Void in any way so I have to do this private fix. A similar case is for the PlayerStart placed inside map's playground but located in a very small spot where nothing spawns.
Primary checks with default player for such powered XC tweaks looks operational - of course original garbage collector is unchanged...
But server might use:

Code: Select all

SpawnFixer: XC_SpawnFixer0 in state SpawnTesting is testing PlayerStart actors.
SpawnFixer: PlayerStart20 seems useless being into void, taking action...
XC_Engine: Set XC_ServerActor DM-{FTB}BallsToTheWall.XC_ServerActor0 as AdminLoginHook
like here:

Code: Select all

SpawnFixer: XC_SpawnFixer0 in state SpawnTesting is testing PlayerStart actors.
SpawnFixer: Probing spawn on PlayerStart29 failed, taking action...
XC_Engine: Set XC_ServerActor DM-!!{dFb}-Scarface.XC_ServerActor0 as AdminLoginHook
If players or admins will want to check if is helpful, such ServerActor can be loaded as a small tweaking charge for such maps without editing them...

Moving ahead. A few time ago I figured a server-crash and because we do have now logs properly saved I dropped an eye over there.
It was a funky problem toward making paths or more exactly how to be a complete idiot when you have no clue about combos creating a bunch of links. Here was a problem with a missing point or a borked network due to a BAD setup. Perhaps I have to write a basic tutorial about Bot Pathing.

Code: Select all

Critical: UObject::ProcessEvent
Critical: (TranslocDest DM-[SPG]UTSniperSchool-Remix.TranslocDest0, Function Botpack.TranslocDest.PostBeginPlay)
Critical: BeginPlay
Critical: UXC_GameEngine::LoadMap
Critical: LocalMapURL
Critical: UGameEngine::Browse
Critical: ServerTravel
Critical: UGameEngine::Tick
Critical: UXC_GameEngine::Tick
Critical: UpdateWorld
Critical: UXC_ServerCommandlet::Main

Server has crashed immediately after loading map and I did not see "lzma" alias for XC player showing that map was never played crashing server all time without even to compress file for download. I opened map in Editor... and I feel lucky, my bathroom is closer whenever I need to throw up or such, because that's what I felt after a quick check.

This is moron type mapping, simple as that.

You guys should get out in a trip instead of making maps... I'll bet on 10$ that it doesn't have any COMBO directives being linked in multiple points - and I don't know if Translocator replacement takes in account "Bot.MyTranslocator" thing anyway...
