Managing a server

Getting Started

Our Team Fortress 2 bookable servers are primarily pre-configured for competitive play; this allows us to deliver a quick on-demand system for players.

Enabling Console

Team Fortress 2 has a console that allows you to enter commands that the game interprets; this is important when controlling and setting up your bookable server. The console by default is disabled and can be enabled by going to Options > Advanced > Enable developer console.


The default console key is the tilde key - ~


rcon_password (password)

To be able to utilise rcon, you first must have the server's rcon_password; this is usually sent along with the other server details at the time of booking. Once you have the password, you can enter the command in your console.

rcon (command)

After entering the rcon_password, you should be able to execute server commands by preceding servers commands with rcon.

exec (config file)

Manually executing config files can be done by using the following command exec.

changelevel (map)

Switching maps can be done manually using the changelevel command.

kick (user/id)

If you need to remove a player from the server, you can use the kick command.

mp_winlimit (amount)

Adjusting the win limit for the map can be done by using the mp_winlimit command; this shouldn't be used for payload or attack/defend type maps.

mp_windifference (amount)

Adjusting the win difference for the map can be done by using the mp_windifference command; this shouldn't be used for payload or attack/defend type maps.

mp_timelimit (amount)

Adjusting the time limit for the map can be done by using the mp_timelimit command; this shouldn't be used for payload, attack/defend and king of the hill type maps.

mp_switchteams (0/1)

Teams can switch starting sides during startup by using the mp_switchteams command; this is generally used for payload or attack/defend type maps.

sm_whitelist_id (whitelist id)

If you require a custom whitelist, you can use the sm_whitelist_id command to execute the weapon bans using the ID provided by


Make sure to execute sm_whitelist_id (whitelist id) after the primary config has loaded or when re-executing configs.
