    Thank you very much!  Now this tool is perfect for my needs.

    The implementation of the random mapcycle is simple, but efficient. Perhaps you should give a warning, that mapcycle.txt will be overwritten or make a backup of the file.

    Other proposals :
    - Add a button to open mapcycle.txt for edit
    - Add Controls for additional server options (MP_flashlight on/off, mp_autoteambalance on/off, mp_friendlyfire on/off,...etc)
    Yes, they also could be done in the Server.cfg, but having a option Gui would be much more comfortable.

    Nice tool! It even detects my 500+ maps, in which the original launcher fails.

    I'm still looking for the possibility for having a random mapcycle (not only the first map). Do you have any idea how to manage this?
