Introduction

Our public servers are licensed and therefore will appear in the primary server list in-game.

This means that our admins must follow not only our own rules but also those from the Official Squad Admin Guide

As such, let's shine through as mature and decent Server Admins and keep [RIP]'s reputation solid!


All full [RIP] members have access to an admin level on our Squad server, so we are never short of an admin.

To apply for your admin rights see this forum post

Junior Admins

Members ranked from Pvt to Cpl are able to:

  • Broadcast Text
  • List Player IDs
  • Kick
  • Show Next Map

Senior Admins

Members ranked Sgt and above are able to:

  • All Junior admin commands plus:
  • Ban
  • Camera Man (used for finding suspected hackers/un-caprapers)
  • Set Next Map
  • Change map (only to be used on training server or if a majorityy players agree)
  • End round (only to be used on training server)

The Console

Squad's in-game admin is accessed via a console using commands.

To access the console double-tap the ` (back tick) or ¬ (negation) key found on the top left of most keyboards (see image below).

An alternative way to access the console is via the in-game text keys the defaults are J, K and L. Delete the "say team/All" which allows you to type your commands.

Press the letter A on your keyboard and a list of admin commands will display. Use the arrow keys to select the command or type in the same text into the console.

The Commands

NOTE:

  • If Warning to be issued use the Broadcast command
  • When Kicking or Banning a player (if Sgt+) you must find the player ID number first.
  • This ID is based on the order in which they joined the server.
  • Once known use this ID to kick/ban

Junior Admin Commands

Broadcast Text Command

  • Send system message to all players on the server
AdminBroadcast TypeMessageHere
Example: AdminBroadcast Welcome to a [RIP] server

List players ID numbers

  • Lists the player IDs (numbering starting from 0) next to player name in console
ListPlayers
Example: ListPlayers

List disconnected players ID numbers

  • Lists the Steam IDs of players that have recently disonnected. Useful for banning teamkillers/griefers that have disconnected before being caught.
AdminListDisconnectedPlayers
Example: AdminListDisconnectedPlayers

Kick a player

  • Kicks player with ID from the server
AdminKickById InsertID Reason
Example: AdminKickById 34 Teamkiller


NOTE:

Ensure you list a valid reason for kicking people, as it appears in the server logs:

  • Join other side - NOT valid
  • Being kicked from a squad - NOT valid

Senior Admin commands

Admin Camera Rules

The Admin camera is an in-game floating camera solely for Senior Admins use.
It is used for a variety of reasons, some including:

  • Catching Hackers
  • Catching Glitchers
  • Catching players camping mains
  • Training (For Academy Instructors)
  • Filming in game footage (Training, Matches or Events)
Public server Rules

The Admin Cam is not to be used for any benefit to yourself, your team or your enemy.

Any breaches will result in Senior Admin being removed and/or removal from the clan.

We run clean servers with well established rules (2007) and [RIP] want it to stay that way.

PLEASE READ:

You can use the Admin camera whether Alive, Bleeding out or Dead.

It is encouraged that you use the camera when you are Dead.

Unless a serious issue arises that leaves you no choice (e.g Hackers) then an allowance has to be made.

Keeping the use of the admin camera to a minimum and whilst dead will help to avoid confusion from players on our server thinking a [RIP] Member is hacking/cheating.

To use the Admin camera please see 5) of this guide.

Set Next Map
  • Sets the next map to be played
AdminSetNextMap Use Arrow keys to select map and press enter
Example: AdminSetNextMap
Show disconnected players
adminlistdisconnectedplayers Name and SteamID64 will display in the console
Ban a player permanently
  • Bans player with Id from the server for length of time. 0 = Perm, 1d = 1 Day, 1M = 1 Month, 1m = 1 minute, etc
AdminBanById InsertID "0" Reason
WARNING: Be Aware as of v8 AdminBanById does NOT need duration,so AdminBanById "1" test, works. Please do not make mistakes by misstyping it with AdminKickId
Example: AdminBanById 34 "0" Teamkiller


NOTE:

  • The 0 means time length with 0 being permanent and must be inside the quotation marks "HERE".
  • There is options to ban for 1 day and 1 month, so instead of 0 us 1d or 1M. Although a ban is a ban until they come begging on the forums so only use 0.
  • When Banning players please be specific with the reason i.e Multiple kicks, Racism, Hacking etc
  • The reason will display on the server message list.


End current round
  • Immediately ends the match
AdminEndMatch
Example: AdminEndMatch
