dedicated server, no group, no listing of no one is online
Hello fellow zombiehunters and reallifeless special infected :)

I have now for a week my own Server, and i can connect anytime with connect command to it and i can force it as lobby server withoput problems.

problem 1:
When im playing or someone else, more players are joining anytime, but when last player leaves (0 players) no new players are joining it, looks like the server becomes invisible for the masterserver when no players are online.

My first trought was that the server shuts down, so i added sb_all_bot_game 1 and it works fine, the games goes on with just bots, but still no new players will join.
Does any one knows solution to this?

problem 2:
I have created steam group, and added in server.cfg the group id...
Nothing showing up :/

my cfg:
hostname TITANIUM(SUPER-TANKS+Charactershop) facebook.com/titaniumot
rcon_password "♥♥♥♥♥♥♥"
sv_password "" // only needed to make your server private.
sv_contact "titaniumworld@web.de"

The server becomes invisible if you have sv_cheats set to 1, you need it set to 0 if you want people to be able to see it in the master list.

thank you, will try it :)

Just noting that you may want to change your rcon password since anyone that felt the need to know has a higher admin level than you if they were to utilise it.

But aides from that, I have found that server.cfgs only execute the first so many lines. Try putting the sv_streamgroup cvar the top of the file after the first paragraph.

Also type !cvar sv_steamgroup while in game and see if it has a value.
If it doesn't then it isn't being read in the config. If it does yet still isn't attaching to the group then either the format or groupid is wrong.

Also the // in the //sv_cheats 1 line means to discard that line and anything after is a comment. (This won't be the problem). And to add onto that, chat servers aren't always invisible. Either they are started invisible out they last another minute and then crash.

How it helps!
