Using RCON Commands

RCON stands for Remote Control. This article is a guide on using RCON on Counter Strike Source servers. RCON should be given to 1 admin for every 10 player slots on a server.

A tool to simplify RCON use is HLSW, downloadable here:

Log into RCON

In order to use RCON, you need to access the console in game using the ~ button. Once open, you need to set the RCON password on your computer before you can send commands to the server. Simply enter "rcon_password mypass". To check and make sure it worked, type rcon status. If you get a printout of server status, youre logged into RCON!

RCON Commands List

Before you can use commands, you should know what a CVAR is. CVAR stands for control variable. CVARs consist of 2 parts, the control item, and the setting for that item. For settings, 0=off and 1=on, and some accept any number (time limits, and start money).

Example: mp_friendlyfire 1

The mp_friendlyfire is the control item you are setting, and you are setting it to 1 (on).

Player Management Commands

rcon kick kicks player with certain username (for long ones, cut and paste from console)
rcon banid Ban a player with a certain ID (found in rcon status) for a time in minutes.
rcon status Prints the servers status, and players status in console

Map Timelimit Commands

mp_maxrounds 30 Sets the maximum rounds played to 30
mp_winlimit 60 Sets the map to change at a team winning 60 rounds
mp_timelimit 35 Sets the timelimit before a new map is played

Dark Brotherhood DLC is removing the veteran ranks. That comes out within a month. There are daily dungeons, real dungeons, raids, world bosses and trials to run (not all are end game).

Again, it's casual enough there isn't that EQ grind to hit end game ASAP. The story is awesome (love being on the Thalmor side of the war), and the lore is top notch. It's not a game for everyone, but I don't think such a game exists.

Render time: 0.0295 sec, 0.0071 of that for queries.
