Thanks a million for having this guide ready to go on release! Having a dedicated server up and running before launch gives me all kinds of warm and fuzzies! Absolutely spectacular job!

It's great that you took the time to make the doc but I think some settings need better descriptions or some clarification.

For example in Checkpoint mode...

RespawnDPR & RespawnDelay. Is DPR Dead Percentage Ratio? How do the 2 settings interect with each other? If I set RespawnDPR to 1 does that mean all bots need to be killed before more spawn? If so how does the RespawnDelay work with it?

Can no one see your server (i.e. external network)? Or is it only you?
Is your server on the same LAN as your gaming PC?

I cannot see my own server either but this is not a problem with the server but my router which doesn't allow NAT Loopback or Hairpinning.

If I want to connect to my own server I need to do so directly to the (internal) IP of the server machine - which we cannot do yet as there is no console or IP connect in Sandstorm.

You'll likely experience this in a load of other games as well if your router does not support NAT Loopback or Hairpinning or if you don't know how to configure it.

And I can write myself the config files too. That is not what I ask, it is not 'too much' to ask for default config files to be shipped with game server files.. I mean this is the basics...

could you specify the location of the admin and mapcycle files have to be in "%Serverroot%//Insurgency/Config/Server/ " ?

Yeah, so having all default files created on SteamCMD download would be helpful to those new.

A changelog of some description to the doc linked would also be nice, otherwise I need to read the doc top to bottom every update, not fun.

How can I set dedicated server maps to CO-OP only ? Is there a shortcut for it ? or should I set maplist to checkpoint only manually ?

Ensure that your mapcycle only contain co-op maps and leave out the "vote map" at the end of the round.
