Hi,Ill make simple step by step explanation how to use RCON.First of all RCON means 'Remote Console'. Use it to change server settings.
If U wont to control an existing server skip part 'CREATE INTERNET SERVER'.
CREATE INTERNET SERVER
Default dir for server.cfg file - C:\Program Files (x86)\Activision\Call of Duty 4\main
-Run your COD4-multiplayer.
-Click on 'START NEW SERVER'
-On 'Dedicated' tab choose 'Internet'
-In the tab 'Server name' enter your server name,COD allows you to write name in color for the multiplayer. To do that just press ^ (shift-6) then a number 0-7, then type the letters you'd like in that color.
* 1 - red
* 2 - green
* 3 - yelow
* 4 - blue
* 5 - light blue
* 6 - pink
* 7 - gray
* 0 - black
-On the 'PunkBuster' tab choose NO (Sometimes PunkBuster problems keeps kicking everybody from server)
-The rest of the settings are up to you (type of the game,.....)
-Click on 'START' (Bottom right corner of the screen)
The server will start and you will see server window (server console).
To be able to use RCON u have to set RCON password.
-In the server console type this: set rcon_password predators (i have put predators but u may use any password u wish)
REMOTE SERVER COMMANDS
-Run the game (your COD4-multiplayer) again (leave server window open).
-Goto 'Options' then 'Game Options'.
-On the tab 'Enable Console' change setting to YES.
-Click on 'Back'.
-Click on 'Join Game'.
-Refresh your Server list.
If everything is OK you will see your server in the list (Should be on the top-lowest ping).
Tab 'Source' must be on the internet.If U cant find your server try to refresh server list couple more times.
If you still cant find it-bad luck.U have some problems (which is another story).
-Join your server.
-Open console (` key on the keyboard below 1)
-Type EXACTLY: /recon login ***** (****** is your password)
Now you are loged in the server.
EVERY TIME U SEND COMMAND TO SERVER U MUST PUT /rcon
Syntax is: /rcon <command> <value>
type in the console: /rcon g_speed 500
This will increase game speed.
To enable cheats you have to run 'devmap' instead of normal map.
devmap mp_***** (***** is map name you want to start)
******Favorite Fun settings:
set jump_height 1000 ('Super Jumps', 150-normal)
set bg_falldamagemaxheight 999999 (prevents death from jumping high)
set player_sustainammo 1 (unlimited ammo)
NOTE: 'Cheats' are NOT 'hacks'! They can be enabled from server side and everybody can use them (unlike 'hacks')!
