I was wondering that myself.

But fyi nico...don't print in huge blue letters like that for such an ordinary question. It tends to make people not want to answer. Seems like you are screaming at us. :sweet:

Do you see any good reason to ask things using a so big and colored fonts ? :evil:


KTLC = Kill the Last Cup . It is a special mode made many monthes ago, mainly for a specific semi-private weekly competition (initiated by the FTMT team).

The concept is a survival mode, rounds based : each end of round the 1 or 2 last players are eliminated (2 at beginning if above a configured dualkill limit to go faster, and 1 under that limit), until when only 3 are remaining, who drive the map final. The finish time is long for 1st map round and is reduced for next ones.
Usually it is made on unknown maps (so the map builder don't play it), and on 4 maps, btw it can be any number, but you can do what you want. ;)

Technically:
- the matchsettings have to by named 'KTLC.txt', directly in GameData\Tracks\, be in rounds mode, and contain one padding/waiting/train map before each map really to play, usualy the waiting map are on the same environment than the following play map of course (ie: wait map, play map, wait map, play map, etc.)
- start cup: /ktlc on <dualkill limit value> (will load the KTLC.txt matchsettings and start the 1st map as waiting/wu)
- finish waiting map/wu and start the play map: /ktlc next
- end the cup: /ktlc off (will also put back the previous server config)
all other things are automatic (ie eliminated players forced specator, etc.), and a specific log is made.


The complete commands list is in the Fast commands page :
/ktlc
/ktlc prep --> prepare KTLC mode
/ktlc on --> start KTLC mode
/ktlc off --> stop KTLC mode
/ktlc wnext --> force next challenge and put all as player
/ktlc next --> force next ktlc challenge
/ktlc specforce [login] --> force a player as spec
/ktlc spec [login] --> put a player in spec state
/ktlc play [login] --> put a player in play state
/ktlc free [login] --> unforce the spec/play state

Sounds pretty cool for a small competition. Maybe I'll try to arrange something like that through my server.

Thanks for the explaination.
