linux server master login
I have just setup a linux sever of xonotic, but am a little confused how I might go about login into master via the console so that I can run commans though there with full privaliges without having to enter them strait into the terminal window.

In my server config file i have this set.
sv_vote_master 0 // 0 will disable voting to become master, good if you prefer to use the master password instead
sv_vote_master_password "mypassword"

I guess my question now it how do I uses the in game console to login with this password and run commands without being blocked.

I'm not really sure, correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought:

vlogin <PASSWORD>

That is what I thought, but when I try that command:

vlogin "mypassword"

I get:

master control of voting is not allowed.

Do I have to change something in my config file???

RE: linux server master login
set sv_vote_master 1 and it works - dunno why but if sv_vote_master_password is set you even have to ...

In my case you can login and others cannot vote to become master ... Tongue

RE: linux server master login
Yay! that worked.

Ok just one more question now that I am in.

How would one go about adding bots and changing there skill level.

I tryed the bot_number command like in the config, but i get nothing.
I can type it directly into the server console and it works. How would I
initiate this form the console?

Is there a tutorial that explains this stuff anywhere?

RE: linux server master login
minplayers X // X= 2 - ... add bots if less then that number of players playing. MAKE SURE ITS LESS THEN maxplayers or people will get blocked by bots!

skill X // X= 0-9 the bots skill level

enter in server console - works
enter when login in xonotic console - dunno ... =)

RE: linux server master login
for master access you should set
sv_vote_master_password "yourpassword"
sv_vote_master 1

as you did already and
sv_vote_master_callable 0
then noone can become master via voting.

The commands that are available for master are defined by
sv_vote_master_commands

if you are interested in full comand and cvar support, then you should take a look at rcon

rcon gives full control.
Therefore you have to set
rcon_password "yourpassword"

You can login via
rcon_password "yourpassword"
and execute commands via
rcon 'command'
