If you administrate a variety of servers it is a small hassle to change your password when you join a different server, so what I am suggesting is that there are multiple c_ap CVars (like c_ap1, c_ap2, c_ap3, etc; etc.) & as long as one of those password match the m_ap on the server, you have admin access.

This same concept applies to RCon but instead of rconpassword, it would be c_rc1, c_rc2, etc; etc.

Now obviously this is not something that is really high on demand but would be useful for some none-the-less; Especially for Official Duelers administrators if we ever get the whole statistically linked servers thing going.

I only admin/visit one server right now, but I can see this as a good idea.

Ahh, but what if you have another person on the same computer using the computer in the same server, that now can be a pain in the butt. Perhaps allowing both \login AND \c_ap as adminpasswords \login as the temp and \c_ap as the perme-setting. Or maybe a command that would remove all passwords from the c_Ap#

Actually it would be no different than how it is now.

I have no clue what you are on about & I think you are making this seem a lot more complicated than it actually is, then again of course, I have no clue what you are on about.

All this does is allow you to store multiple passwords instead of having to change the password manually when you join a different server with a different admin password, that's it. Anything else would be no different from how it is now.

Also, c_ap is the login. m_ap is where the password is stored on the server.
