Hey there Smile im trying to make a couple of story co-op multiplayer maps for Yuri's Revenge Mental Omega Mod , i got 4 maps ready but i still want to ''refine'' them a bit more .

So i had the following questions for improving my co-op maps:


1. Is it possible in multiplayer maps to have an AI always spawn at the same Start location with the same faction ?

(at the moment i need to put AI in a specific spot with the right faction)

2. Can i take away players money at the start and give them a specific ammount  back ?

(for mission/story purpose and i know i can take money with spies but i whas wondering if it is possible without and give them a certain ammount at the start and lock the Option/setting in the lobby)

3. Is it possible to disable specific  rules / options in the multiplayer lobby before the game starts, for a specific map?

( i would like for some rules to be always on or off like short game: always off)



Thanks! Smile

I think you need to use CNCNet client (or whatever it is called, XNA client? DTA client?) to set customized rules/options for that, vanilla game lobby does not have those options.

in coop maps in the cncnet client, there is a way to lock the settings in the player lobby. presumably (?) mental omega
uses some version of the cncnet client and it should work there too.

it has to be done in the mapside ini, by making the header [ForcedOptions], and then putting the tags under it. this is the
only documentation that i couldfind about valid tags for forcedoptions, (from an ra2 cncnet mapper)

Code:
chkShortGame= ; Short Games (Write true/false)
chkRedeplMCV= ; MCV Repacks(Write true/false)
chkCrates= ; Crates (Write true/false)
chkMultiEng= ; Multi Engineer (Write true/false)
chkIngameAllying= ; Ingame Allying (Write true/false)
chkNoDogEngiEat= ; No Dog Engineer Kills (Write true/false)
chkBrutalAI= ; Brutal AI (Write true/false)
chkDestrBridges= ; Destroyable Bridges (Write true/false)
chkDisableSuperWeapons= ; Disable Super Weapons (Write true/false)
chkSuperWeapons= ; Super Weapons (Write true/false)
chkBuildOffAlly= ; Build Off Ally CY (Write true/false)
chkRA2Mode= ; Red Alert 2 Style (Write true/false)
chkNoSpawnPreviews= ; No Spawn Previews (Write true/false)
cmbCredits= ; Amount of moneys
cmbStartingUnits= ; Amount of units started (Write number)


i guess that rampastring added these into the client but never documented them.
