I'm having a little trouble, I'm working on making my own dedicated server and for some reason I can't log in with my RCON password. So I hit the console button and type "rconpassword ilovecod" and everything seems fine, it just scrolls down to a blank line. But i can still get kicked from my own server even though i've supposedly logged in. I'm assuming thats not normal, is there another step i'm missing? any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
the command is: /set rcon g_password "ilovecod". this sets it. When you use it to make a command to the server, you always type this: /rcon whateveryouwant
i tried setting it like you said using the command: set rcon g_password "ilovecod" and typed: /rcon ilovecod. But when i try to kick someone or any other command it says "server not running" so i'm assuming that means i'm not logged in. It doesn't make sense. Any other ideas?
Are you using the same pc to run a server AND play on?
Yes. I like to leave it running when i'm not playing so i don't kick people off when i leave.
Thats why the server isnt running when your on the game - you can't have 2 instances of COD on the same pc. The message you get, 'server isn't running', is because it will have closed down the server due to a hitch warning.
so the only way i can be the host is with a listen server?
If youmean you need to use a second pc to jpin your dedicated server, then yes. A 'listern server' is a server which listerns out for players.
thanks very much for the help. :cya:
