12 man server - I want 5v5 with 2 in game spectator slots -

Post by roboman32 » Thu Mar 05, 2015 8:42 pm


I am new to setting up servers, I have configurated everything that I want except for this one so I would think simple problem, but turns out I can't get what I want. I want the 12 slot server with both teams restricted to 5 players each + the 2 remaining slots being forced to spec until someone leaves a team =12 total slots. I have my Gamemode_server config to set Maxplayers to 10; however the server still plays at 6v6 and not the 5v5 I would like. Does anyone know how to do this? Limit each team to only 5 people?

First, may i suggest a plugin? Check this one out https://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?t=244114

Its 5v5 pugs, so it kinda immitates cevo servers but allows you to set up the game through an in game menus :D There is screen shots of it, check it out. If you need help installing let me know, but it should be pretty easy.

But if you just wanted a vanilla server, I know its actually kind of a pain to do this (surprisingly). I am refreshing my memory on how to do this, i will get back to you as soon as i figure it out!

Also one thing you COULD do is just set the slots to 10, then enable source tv which will allow as many spectators as you wish :D BUT I think this wont work on a standalone server (so its not linked to a virtual machine or anything like that) due to it needing to change its port for source tv.
