Outgun / Documentation / Highlighting favourite maps

Highlighting favourite maps

This document describes config/maps.txt, a favourite maps file which you can use to highlight your favourite maps in the Outgun map list.

This document applies to Outgun 1.0, starting from version 1.0.2. maps.txt hasn’t been used by any previous versions.

You don’t need maps.txt in normal operation; it’s useful to catch the best maps in the map list. If you like some particular maps, you can highlight them so they are more easily found in the list when you want to vote a map.

The format Outgun 1.0 understands is very simple. Every non-empty line that is not a comment (those start with a semicolon, ‘;’), should be a map title. Those maps will be highlighted (green) in the map list. The map titles are case-insensitive. For example:

2x2
Attack
Attack2
The Blunt

For easy adding new maps, you can edit the file while Outgun is running. maps.txt is reloaded each time you open the map list.
