If you login as admin there is another easy way to kick people, also useful for kicking/map banning people with custom characters and stuff.

Login as admin, then open scoreboard up with tab (hold tab) then right click the players name should get options to do multiple things including kick-ban
Edit: don't mind mine overlapping a bit, 4k resolution problems =p

I am curious as to how you are able to click on their usernames whilst holding tab. I have only played in the KF2 christmas beta about 3 weeks ago, is this a new feature they've added or do you have a plugin of some sort to do this?

The classic scoreboard or any mutator in general removes your server from (takeover) which is the main way people join or find your server so its kinda pointless, correct me if i am wrong.

The tab and right click thing. How do you click on a player, the mouse is not there......

I can confirm that this works on my system, but not exactly as described . I do have mouse support while pressing tab. With the version of the mutator that I loaded (Steam workshop 1132884083) I have slightly different options on right click. When I choose Kick nothing happens. When I choose Ban it does a kick but doesn't add the player to the ban list. This is a work around that allows me to get these players off my server while in game. The ban can be added later by editing the config files.

*edit Mutator is white listed so server stays ranked. I also use the damage display mutator and have created classes for both so there are tick boxes in the web interface to turn the mutators on and off at will when changing maps.

I've shut my server down. I have no more interest in work-arounds and third party mods. It's been a long run of hosting a Killing Floor 2 server but now I'm done. I am so discouraged by this whole affair . The consequence to Tripwire is that I won't be making any more dlc purchases .

Amazing the amount of concern TWI is showing for server owners isn't it?

What I have noticed in the last couple of weeks on all our KF2 servers, more and more asshats coming out of the woodwork to wreak havoc for kicks!
Thanks TWI for punishing untold numbers to stop a few............ shotgun approach if I ever saw one. My only option was to direct all my admins to shut down the server for a bit to clear them out.
Don't care to add mutators, but might be an option later on in order to keep my sanity and our servers populated. Could always copy player, Steam I.Ds and then add them manually to config file............. but I suspect that will not work if the whole system is disabled.

Why I bother to post anything here anymore is beyond me. It's a game that started out great and TWI has slowly, methodically made it a PITA to run, admin and keep up with!
