I'm putting all of my BF2 racing maps into a custom mod. I've edited the Init.con file for each map and removed all of the kits except the Engineer so it is the only kit available on the Menu once a map loads. As long as I select the kit first before clicking the spawn point and then clicking the Join button, everything is fine. However, if I fail to select the kit first, then click the spawn point and the Join button, the game crashes to desktop.
Is there a way to force the game to automatically select the engineer kit when the map finishes loading?
I could add a line in each map.desc file to inform players to follow that procedure, but I'd prefer to find a way to force the game to automatically select the engineer kit. I edited the mod.desc file and set the engineer as the default kit there, but that didn't do the trick.
Once the first map is over and the next race map loads, the engineer kit remains selected, so there is no problem from then on, just on the initial load. Any help would be appreciated.
