to many flags probably. btw, -f doesnt really do anything.
+f good{100} is 100 of each good flag (same with the bad flag thing)

-f disallows flags and it works... :roll:

i thought + good{100} adds 100 random good flags,but that wasn't problem, i saw a server run with more flags b4

-f flag hasnt worked for me till this day. according to thumper, this is what -f does:
Code:

+f: always have flag <id> available
-f: never randomly generate flag <id>



so you use +f to force a flag on the map and -f to never RANDOMLY generate a specific flag - it doesn't remove it. This only applies to randomly generated flags and Team flags probably aren't ever randomly generated -- they show up if a team member is on and go away otherwise. I don't think it is possible to run a CTF game without one of the team flags without a special server patch.
but he's not sure

100 good flags? That is however many good flags time 100. Meaning, that it puts in 100 of every good flag in the game. You have over two thousand flags on your map ;) (If I'm not mistaken)

Umm... no. I think that +f{100} puts a total of 100 good flags on your map. What those 100 good flags are is random.

+f{100}, iirc, puts 100 of each good flag on the map. That'd easily crash a server.

Ahh, that's where I messed up. I know something +f 100 puts in 100 of each good flag.
