How do you change the server password in the server console on webadmin?

I would like to avoid using actual WebAdmin since it keeps putting rectangles in the server name.

I tried "GamePassword" to remove the password but did not work. I would like to do this on the fly when needed.

Thanks!

I bet it's something prefixed with admin (remember to login as admin). Other than that, I dunno.

So along the lines of...

listplayers
displays list of current players

adminlogin adminpassword
logs you into admin

adminlogout
logs you out of admin

admin kick playername
kicks specified player from the server

admin kickban playername
kicks and bans the specified player from the server

admin adminsay <message>
displays a message in the middle of everyone's screen with the text you typed in the message

admin switchlevel KF-mapname.rom
changes the map while keeping the same server configuration

admin password <password>
locks server with desired password, active on map restart

What is Rcon command to restart the map again?

if you open an ini file and say want to add a password

you see something like this:

[Engine.AccessControl]
AdminPassword=
GamePassword=

you can set a password then through the console while ingame using:

admin set Engine.AccessControl GamePassword Thesupersecretpassword

or through webadmin type in the console

set Engine.AccessControl GamePassword Thesupersecretpassword


This will allow you to do any ini change through the console.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

As well when typing listplayers players will have a number infront of their name.
So if you want to ban someone with a weird name thats hard to type.

You could type listplayers see its player number 13

then type admin kickban 13 (or it was #13 dont remember :p)

Although when logged in you can vote for a map change or kickvote for something and that will automatically kick him as well.

I just logged in and was able to perform an adminsay and then logout. I couldn't perform a listplayers and didn't try any others yet as gamers were in the server.

I had to login again after every map change though.

I'm confused. Within the game console the above commands are fine. But what if you want to do some of these things from the web console? So I'm sitting in the web console, take the "server console" option, and change the input from "say" to "admin kick <playername>".

Nothing happens?

listplayers is a very useful function but does not appear to work in KF
Is there an alternative command? (status, listid, userid etc)

I can confirm that admin need to login with each map change

Found a console message on joining our server something to the effect that "This servers does not allow late joiners"
How does server op enable Late joiners?

I set the bnolatejoiners=False and the server still puts the player in spectate...is there a way to set it up so the late player goes directly into the game?

In webadmin you do not need the admin prefix, so just do "kick playername" and so on.

Alright, so. Mines not working either.

I'm trying ingame admin.

I set the password under [Engine.AccessControl], code reads as follows:

[Engine.AccessControl]
AdminPassword=xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
GamePassword=
bBanByID=True

Yet every time I enter a command...I get no response. I'll do adminlogin password

then it just does nothing.

What am i doing wrong?
