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

It's an alt-tab mmo, you let it run overnight like cookieclicker, and it opens up a new server every week. the idea is everyone starts at level 1 and races

i've played like 300 mmorpgs at least extensively. There's still some fun shit out there, but you won't find it in america / english, and it's not what you would imagine a game to look like. AAA studios cannot make a fun game let alone a fun MMORPG because they're trying to suck too many dicks at once. I mean, sure a 99 dude gangbang is cool, but is it as fun for each guy?

Heard the new patch on the division made it unplayable. Have fun

last night we raided some poor sap's base. they were alone, and in their base. he wouldn't come out so we just built a wall around his base so he couldn't get out. total waste of resources but worth

i would play more but i'm bored of cs:s and i can't stop playing rust. plus i have like 30 new games i haven't played yet including the division. just can't stop trolling on rust.
