In Adv. Options, tab named "Start"

Playing Unsuported Maps[edit]

All maps: https://zero-k.info/Maps
If you are trying to play a certain map and the lobby isn't changing to that map, you have probably selected an unsuported map.
In order to set it you need a private/passworded lobby. Enter !password <passwordvalue> to make it private. Now go to the website and click on PLAY ON THIS MAP, or type the command !map <mapname>.
You can now remove the password by entering !password without a <passwordvalue>.
