Configstring

Configstrings are strings (often in the form of a set of key\value pairs) set on the server and automatically sent to each client. They can be accessed with the Configstring and String utility functions.

Tip

A group of related configstrings usually only have a symbolic name for the first value, with a number added to get a particular value. For example, to access a user CS_PLAYERS configstring you must use et.trap_GetConfigstring(et.CS_PLAYERS + slotNumber).

See et.CS_* constants for available configstrings.

Here is the detailed content of the user CS_PLAYERS configstring:

Key Value Description
n pers.netname Nickname
t sess.sessionTeam Team
c sess.playerType Class
lc sess.latchPlayerType Latched class
r sess.rank Rank
m medalStr Medals
s skillStr Skills
dn disguiseClientNum Disguised covert ops
w sess.playerWeapon Weapon
lw sess.latchPlayerWeapon Latched primary weapon
sw sess.latchPlayerWeapon2 Latched secondary weapon
mu sess.muted Muted
ref sess.referee Referee
u sess.uci GeoIP ISO 3166-1 country code

Userinfo

Userinfo strings are strings set on clients for server processing. They can be accessed with the Userinfo functions.

Key Example Value Description
cg_uinfo 12 0 100 Client settings [cg_autoreload/cg_autoactivate/cg_predictitems] [cl_timenudge] [cl_maxpackets]
g_password none Server password
cl_guid 0123456789ABCDEF0123456789ABCDEF GUID
cl_wwwDownload 1 Missing files downloading toggle
name ETLPlayer Nickname
rate 2500 Rate setting
snaps 20 Snaps setting
protocol 84 Game protocol
qport 4834 Randomly chosen as startup
challenge -686256943 Random 31 bit integer
ip 192.168.123.45:27960 IP and port

Note

The userinfo string of bots only includes the cl_guid, name, rate, snap and ip keys/values.

SendServerCommand

et.trap_SendServerCommand() is used to send a command from the server to one or more clients.

The first argument is the slot number of the client the command is sent to. If it’s equal to -1, the command is broadcast to all clients.

The following commands can be issued:

Print a message to the client’s annoucement area and console:

"cpm \"Message\n\""
