I am looking to run a server when I play and I would like to set up the map list. I used to play this game long time ago and I have since forgoten where the file is and how to change it so I can set things like the map cycle. Any help would be great!

dedicated.cfg - residing in your main TM directory.
The comment lines in the file make it pretty self-explaining.

AFAIR the TM launcher dialog offers the option to open/edit the dedicated.cfg.

Ok I figured most of it out after finding it but I do have one question. How do I put all the AI bots on to say 3 different teams? I want 5 teams on the server with 9 bots but I want the all the bots on only 3 of the teams not all 5.

My suggestion is to play around with this at the bottom of dedicated.cfg

Maybe it supports AITankTeam1, etc. or commas after color?

#Set this parameter (uncomment) if you want the AI tanks to be on a specific team only.
#Otherwise they will spread out evenly among all player teams.
AITankTeam = Red

The comma did not work and I tried a few other things but they did not work either. Do I need to remove the # sign from in front of my maps to get that map cycle?

No I said I have not been playing in a long time. Ok I got the map cycle working right now I just need to get the AI players onto just three of the teams and I would be good to go. I am running what ever version the patch get's you up to.

in order to get multiple AI teams. thats TeamColor, space TeamColor,space TeamColor
don't think anyone has tried this before, if you get it working, please let us know how you got it to work
