I run dedicated.exe, and get this a lot on every map:
Info string length exceeded while trying to set 'whatever'

My start up looks like:
C:\Quake2\dedicated.exe +set dedicated 1 +set hostname "quake.magiclamp.net" +set deathmatch 1 +set maxclients 8 +set public 0 + set game neurotic +exec server.cfg

I have tried with the non-dedicated version, and older versions of q2 binaries (non-r1ch) and get the same results.

If you need more info, just let me know =)

Cheers!

By neurotic you don't mean my mod do you? Please no... it's not fit for public consumption Cheesy.

As neurotic was the first time I ever touched the q2 mod code, I didn't know how to set cvars properly and as a result made everything a serverinfo cvar which overflows the info string very easily. To work around this, use set sv_no_game_serverinfo 1 in a config file that gets loaded BEFORE the map starts up. I think this cvar exists in b1918, but I'm not 100% sure.
