Enabling cheats on a server?
« on: May 29, 2014, 02:32:26 PM »
So, whenever I use the MM8BDM launcher to make a simple server for me and my friends to play on, I can't enable cheats.

Every time I do sv_cheats true, it says they will be changed for the next game, but they never are.

And yes, I did do it in the server control window, as well as in-game too, and both yielded the same result.

So how would one enable it properly using the 8BDM launcher's server setup feature? Or is it only possible with Doomseeker?

have you tried putting sv_cheats 1 instead of sv_cheats true?

Try changing the map using the "map" command after enabling sv_cheats.

NOTE: If you're using Best-Ever (I assume you aren't right now because you said "server control window" and "MM8BDM Launcher", but if you ever do), don't host cheat servers unless they are protected by password. They are against Best-Ever's rules for some unknown reason.

Ah, so instead of using "nextmap", I have to use "map [MAPNAME]"?

Yes, it works now.

I feel that this dialogue seems to be outta place for some reason.
