Server Resources for RGL.gg

Hi! This github repository contains all of the required plugins, configs, maps, etc. for RGL league play. The configs were created from scratch, though they were inspired by the UGC, ETF2L, and CEVO configs. The autoupdater plugin was also created from scratch, but heavily inspired by Miggy’s (RIP) UGCUpdate and IntegriTF2 plugins.

In creating the configs, I tried my best to prevent extra and/or useless commands while also minimizing the ability for cheating, exploitation, and unfair play due to preexisting client and/or server settings.

The RGL updater plugin was created mostly by Aad, and it automatically updates itself and the rest of the files downloaded to your server as this repository gets updated.

If you find that I missed something in the configs, or if something doesn’t work the way it should, or you have a suggestion, please add and message me on Steam or Discord.

my steam id is / stephanielgbt / and my discord is stephanie#9999 .

If you have problems with the plugin, or if you have a suggestion, please message me or Aad#2621 on discord about it.

Install Instructions

  1. Remove all old RGL.gg configs from your server. (THIS IS IMPORTANT, if you do not do this things will break!)
  2. Download the latest zip from the releases tab
  3. Navigate to your server install folder in an (S)FTP client of your choice
  4. Place everything inside the zip into the root /tf/ folder. Overwrite any and all files that you get prompted for.
  5. Done!

If you’re still having trouble, there’s step by step instructions with pictures over in the wiki!

Updating Instructions

The plugin updates itself, along with the RGL configs, after every exec and changelevel. You should never manually edit any config that isn’t a gamemode specific custom.cfg, because it will get automatically overwritten. This is to prevent cheating and ensure each server is running the same settings.

You will have to add new maps to your server manually as RGL introduces them to each gamemode’s map pool. This is to prevent lengthly download times with the updater plugin.

Simply download the new map and place it in the /tf/maps/ folder, through an (S)FTP client of your choice, and you’re done.

There are different configs and plugins for scrims and matches if you’re playing 5cp and koth in 6s. Halftimes in 5cp and koth are handled by the tf2Halftime plugin, mirrored from here.

Every other gamemode and type has the same config for scrims and matches.

Here are the configs you need to exec for specific modes and map types:

6s
type of game config to exec notes
5cp Scrim rgl_6s_5cp_scrim winlimit 5, timelimit 30, for scrims only
5cp Match rgl_6s_5cp_match First half: winlimit 3, timelimit 30, 2nd half: first to 5 or timelimit
5cp Match 1st Half rgl_6s_5cp_match_half1 winlimit 3, timelimit 30 (this and half2 can be used if plugin isn't available)
5cp Match 2nd Half rgl_6s_5cp_match_half2 winlimit 5, timelimit 30, reexec after one team has won 5 total rounds
5cp Match Golden Cap rgl_6s_5cp_gc winlimit 1, no timelimit
KoTH Match rgl_6s_koth winlimit 2, no timelimit, 2 halves.
KoTH Scrim rgl_6s_koth winlimit 2, no timelimit, 2 halves. (can be used for matches and reexeced if plugin is not available, reexec after one team has won 4 total rounds)
Playoffs KoTH rgl_6s_koth_bo5 winlimit 3, no timelimit


HL
type of game config to exec notes
Stopwatch rgl_HL_stopwatch winlimit 2 (best of 3)
Regular Season KoTH rgl_HL_koth winlimit 2, no timelimit, 2 halves. reexec after one team has won 4 total rounds
Playoffs KoTH rgl_HL_koth_bo5 winlimit 3, no timelimit


7s
type of game config to exec notes
Stopwatch rgl_7s_stopwatch winlimit 2 (best of 3)
Regular Season KoTH rgl_7s_koth winlimit 2, no timelimit, 2 halves. reexec after one team has won 4 total rounds
Playoffs KoTH rgl_7s_koth_bo5 winlimit 3, no timelimit

Reset Config

(rcon) exec rgl_off

This will reset your server to default settings, plus whatever you have set in server.cfg. It will not unload the STV bot (though it will stop recording). A more detailed explanation is below.

On the off config and STV bugginess

There is something seriously wrong with STV in TF2. For no apparent reason, when you start it up, it eats a player slot by incrementing the value of your server’s maxplayers by 1. This isn’t a problem, typically, because TF2 can technically handle 33 “players”, aka 32 + STV. If you were to set +maxplayers to 33 and then add stv, things would get ugly, really quickly.

But that’s not all. When the bot is unloaded, it, for no apparent reason, reads the value of tv_maxplayers and sets your server’s visible player count to that number. Why? Who knows. sv_visiblemaxplayers has ZERO effect on this. For that reason, I decided to not unload the STV bot in the rgl_off config, as things would get broken quickly if players didn’t set tv_maxplayers AND sv_visiblemaxplayers to the same value, which also has to be at or under the server’s slot limit.

For this reason, and on the advice of some server network operators, I have decided to not shut down stv with rgl_off. If you need to disable the STV, please restart your server.

The bug report for this issue is here.
