how do I change the game mode to a Warlord game mode?
You have 2 methods :
1st. You connect to your server in admin and you the command "#missions" and select the "Warlord" mission of your choice on the island of your choice (and available).
2nd if you want to launch your server directly on the Warlord Mission, you can edit the config files and in the "// MISSION CYCLE" put the name of the Warlord Mission. Then the server will now restart with the Warlord mission everytime he get restart.
so I am unable to get into my server ig from me trying to change the game mode iv made no game to join? like I can join but its a black screen and all I can hear is water then it takes me back to the main menu
This is a different problem then,
I saw that you submitted a ticket to the support team. I now see that your server is in suspend. Can't help you anymore sorry.
For this kind of problem, the best is to contact the support team directly they can have access to your server and see what's wrong.
