Hey guys I have a couple of problems I wouldn't mind some help on. We have a BF server here that is currently running in hardcore mode.
Now for some reason Commanders are not available for this server despite setting it to allow them. I've tried playing with the max player count and the number of spectators but nothing fixes it. Does anyone have a clue what I am doing wrong?
Also Fairfight is showing as off for this server and I can see no options on the configuration page to turn it on. Is there a reason for this?
Thanks in advance.
if your renting a 32 player server, set max players to 30 to allow room for 2 commanders. set spectators to 0.
should work fine.

I tried this and it didn't work. Just to be certain that I did it wrong I tried it again with the same result. No commander mode and two less players..
oh and Dru I checked in procon and Commander is selected there as well. It's just not showing up.
Oh perhaps I should point out that while ranked our server is actually custom rather than blanket Hardcore. We turned the minimap and hit markers back on. Surely this doesn't prevent Commander from working?
Okay I think I've discovered the problem. I haven't had a chance to test it yet but it appears if you have any maps in the rotation that do not have commanders available it will block them for the entire server.
custom dosnt mater. few of my servers are custom and commander still works fine.
have you also tried setting things in the config' tab "commander allowed"?
other then that. I wouldn't know.
support has been slow from ausgamers. hope they get back on track soon.
Terkoz is correct. Any maps like TDM that do not support Commander will put the whole server in not allowing Commander mode.
Modes that do not support commander are :
* Team Deathmatch
* Squad Deathmatch
Take these out of your rotation and your server should allow Commanders again (as long as you have allowed for 2 commander slots)
Thanks for the list Roundie. I took those modes out of the rotation and Commander mode came back.
