An admin is coming to a PC near you

Post by DarkDeamon » Sat Feb 28, 2015 2:21 pm

Right you newt botherers....

As this is a local server for local people and we sometimes get strange people on who bother the locals (ohso), after much screaming, swearing and farting the Admiralty have come up with a punning clan as, much as we love the game, the admins can't be ingame 24x7...

It is possible to create groups within the game's back end and give these groups different permissions and abilities, so that's what we've done!

The groups and their rights are as follows....

Basic
Has the ability to change maps, and slay idle players if everyone else is dead.

Standard
Basic + kick + use the in-game console chat commands

Trusted
Standard + ban +unban, for when you fuck it up and ban the wrong person.

Admin
Nearly everything

Full Admin
Server God with full access to your soul

These functions can be accessed by opening up the console in-game (press the ` key), typing sm_admin and hitting enter. This will bring up a nice little menu (close the console at this point) that gives you access to the commands you're authorised to use.



If you are a FULL member (sorry probies but your going to have to bribe me with LOTS of booze and bacon - iso container sized) you will get added to one of the groups and your usage of your privileges monitored (DarkD is watching you through your monitor and inside your pc). If we like you & think we can trust you (thats LOTS and LOTS of bacon and a pile of pepperoni pizzas that I can reach from my room window - I live on the 20th floor) then we may give you more privileges??

This all works off your Steam ID and god like as I am, I've not managed to magically memorise all of your id's yet, you will need to pm me your Steam ID. Follow the guide here and PM me your ID once you've worked it out.

Any questions then bugger off as I'm pining for the fiords, pork products and booze!

So how do I use my god like powers in game......?

Find your self a nice quiet dark little corner where you can tuck yourself away safely

Open the conolse using the ` key

Type in sm_admin hit Enter

Close the console using the ` key

You should have a nice little menu

*****************************************************************************

I want to select a map?

Press the number for server commands

Press the number for maps

Use the 7 & 8 key to move through the map list till you see the map you want

Press that number

NOTE:That map list contains every map and game mode on the server. I've sorted the map list with the Coop maps first. Once you get past Winter Rescue you are entering PvP maps and game modes and I'm not responsible for what happens if you select one of those maps!!!!!

This should be done with the agreement of all EBS members in game at the time and needs to be done while you are in a round.
Example of useage - pubbies are monopolising the server playing the same map over and over again & members don't fancy playing cargo for the 3rd time in a row!

*****************************************************************************

Player is afk and everyone else is dead

Press the number for player commands

Press the number for slay player

Use 7 & 8 to scroll through the list till you find that player - It lists the bots as well as the human players

Press their number and blammie, they're dead

NOTE:DO NOT ABUSE THIS PRIVILEGE as bad things may happen to you (involving a tin of dog food, some starving dogs and ohso's goat without the lube!)

*****************************************************************************

Player is being an arse by TK'ing or generally abusing people and I'm not god-like enough to ban them

Get their Name & Steam ID using the status command in the console, ` then status then enter then copy

Send them a warning, either a general one through the admin menu 'massages' or using the sm_psay command in the console

If they still carry on then....

Press the number for player commands

Press the number for kick player

Use 7 & 8 to scroll through the list till you find that player

Press their number and blammie, they're kicked

Post this in our insurgency forum in the Hall of Shame thread stating why you kicked them and their Name & Steam ID so that if we see a repeat offender then we can ban their asses

NOTE:DO NOT ABUSE THIS PRIVILEGE as bad things may happen to you (involving a Kangeroo, a tub of ghee a rabbit and a starving ferret

*****************************************************************************

Player is being offensive and abusing people and I'm god like enough to ban them

Get their Name & Steam ID using the status command in the console, ` then status then enter then copy

Press the number for player commands

Press the number for ban player

Use 7 & 8 to scroll through the list till you find that player

Press their number and blammie, they're banned

Post this in our insurgency forum in the Hall of Shame thread stating why you banned them and their Name & Steam ID

NOTE:DO NOT ABUSE THIS PRIVILEGE as bad things may happen to you (involving me coming round with a knife and fork, a large amount of bacon, a set of fire irons and some incendiary grenades)

*****************************************************************************

For those that have the 'Massage' option in their menu's, ohso or PB will be round with the baby oil within 30 mins of selecting the option.... pmsl

These are just a few random messages I setup to test the capability. If you can think of a message you want including of no more than around 40 characters then let me know so we can add it

To use the chat commands properly (not the quickies i've added to the menu :devil: ) you need to run them from the console itself

sm_csay sends a message to all players in the centre of the screen
sm_hsay sends a hint message to all players in the lower 1/3 of the screen
sm_msay sends a message as a menu panel
sm_psay sends a private message to a specific player
sm_say sends a message to all players
sm_tsay sends a message in top left of screen

command format is

sm_csay "type your message here"

sm_psay "playername/steam id" "type your message here"

Use the quotes otherwise it can chop your message short
Keep your message short
If you need the players name/steam id then type in "status" in the console and copy and paste it from there


*****************************************************************************

Most of the other commands that an Admin will see relate to flipping and configuring server #2 for PvP. If any of the admins/ full admins want to know more about that then catch me sometime when the server is quiet and I can talk you through it all.

bump boys!
this is open to all full members. give me or DD your steam id's.
it's really worth getting to grips with the first two basic commands. after that it's easy to build up through the levels.
EASY NOW

If you want to go hardcore admin and use the commands directly then start a server or team chat (Y or U normally) and type in your command prefixed with an exclamation mark ie !sm_admin
!sm_slay "=EBS= Spawnsy"
!sm_hsay "You gotta love sheep"

Saves you opening the console
