Hiding the reserved slot for admin
« on: September 03, 2007, 07:02:45 PM »
It's just what the subject is saying, today I tried to join multiple times and time after time kick this disconnected that.....

just because off the reserved slot for admin. A reserved slot is ok and stuff but make it invisible so people can't join when there are 20 players on. It's easy and it will save people like me alot off frustration.

This is the CVAR:      SetMaxVisible VALUE

This is the setting you should change for this. Simply it does is let us think it's a 20 slot server insteaad off 21, so people can't connect when there are 20 people on it because you get a full message and then you can just click the auto join when slot is available option.


Ok thats just my two cents for today :)

I found out that there is no such cvar by default, it may be an addon u're using which allows it.

oh thanks Kip! I forgot that.

I activated reserved slot on both Core64 servers, because its always full and I couldn't connect ;)

theres a nice server var called sv_visiblemaxplayers
we have 21 slots, 1 reserved, so I set this var to 20 and nobody will get angry when being kicked because of reserved slot.

Thx!!

stinkyfax, the default is -1, means that setting is disabled. I dont know if "0" works....maybe you see a 20/0 server then lol
-1 sets the value to "maxplayers" var

All admins have reserved slot, but they need to FORCE connect, via console or HLSW. I'll post in the admin section @ nolife!

There's also a command to allows res slots to be filled until someone comes along to claim them in mani.
in Mani_server.cfg
mani_reserve_slots_allow_slot_fill 1
