Alright, so I have people get on my server and bully others off for their own purpose by voting them off. When I go to ban them in the console, it states that they are not on the server. I've copied their name right off of the console window and placed it in quotes as someone suggested before, but it still doesn't work. Is there something someone can do to their name to keep you from kicking them off? Also, is there a script I can type in that will keep them from being able to vote me off my own server? It would be wonderful for whomever calls the vote to get booted instead of me. Basically, when they call the vote to kick me, they themselves get kicked instead. I would love to be able to get rid of all the annoying people who use my server with ease so I can effectively tell them to piss off. with love, Col Angus

Well you can disable voting totally (I think you have to do /rcon g_allowvote 0 and /rcon scr_allowvote 0; both of them, or else it remains enabled). To kick people (much easier than entering their entire name), you have to do /rcon status, look to the leftmost column (I think, I haven't done this in months), and remember the number that's there (that's the user ID). Then you can do /rcon clientkick [userid], /rcon clientban [userid], or /rcon tempbanclient [userid]. This is all assuming you have rcon access set up. If you don't have it... the same commands should work, but don't enter the /rcon at the beginning (/rcon tempbanclient [userid] becomes just plain /tempbanclient [userid]). I hope this helps somewhat.
thank you, but I'm not familiar with what rcon is
rcon is admin control of a server, thru this they can change maps, gametype, allow and disallow weapons, kick and ban players, plus other things. To kick someone off the server, is /rcon clientkick (Playerid), to ban some is /rcon banclient (playerid). The id is the players slot number in game... To ban someone thru punkbuster it is /rcon pb_sv_ban 2, for punkbuster its one number off, if you want to ban player 1 thru punkbuster, you would enter /rcon pb_sv_ban 2, same goes for screen shots for punkbuster. IF I were you I would disable voting all together, sounds like you are running into a lot of problems with it.
is rcon for use with a player or typing in the console? I've never used that command before when typing commands in the server console. I don't like to turn voting off as it is useful sometimes, but as is the case with most freedoms, you also have a reverse which doesn't work in your favor always. CA
rcon needs to be set up in the server for it work, you type all commands in the console
I do assume this your server and you have full ftp access to it?
it is my server, but I'm not familiar with setting up the rcon. Do you simply make a password and go from there? CA
Creating a autoexec_mp.cfg file & adding startup settings By creating an autoexec_mp.cfg file and placing it in your Call of Duty/MAIN folder, you can have several settings executed every time to start Call of Duty Multiplayer. This can be useful for many things, particularly for adding your servers rconpassword. The below steps are instructions as to how to create this file and how to add the rconpassword to it: 1) Go to your Call of Duty/MAIN folder, 2) Right click on some white space and select "New >> Text Document" 3) Name the file “autoexec_mp.cfg" (MUST be named exactly as this) 4) Open the file in Notepad 5) Add the following line: rconpassword ”” 6) Close and save the file; join your server and you should be able to issue [color=red]RCON[/color] commands right away (i.e. [color=red]/rcon status[/color]) Find the main folder in your server files thru the FTP, once you have created this, you can either make a shortcut with the rcon password you have made, or when you join the game enter in console /rconpassword " whatever it is" and hit enter, you will then have rcon control over server. You might already have a file in there with that name, don't delete anything from it, just add the rconpassword you want to use.
does that work for macs?
