rcon instructions

Patch 1.0004 for the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl introduces new features into the system of server game control. To increase efficiency of servers, a new command of remote server administration has been added.


The Remote Admin application has been created for controlling the server from a remote computer.

- How to set up remote server administration?

To set up, you have to create on the server you want to control in the appdata folder the file radmins.ltx, in which the administrator account and his password will be specified. For example, like this:

killer = 123456
lamer = 654321

where killer and lamer are administrator accounts, and 123456 and 654321 are their respective passwords.

After creating the file radmins.ltx, the administrator can simply enter the game and in the console write:

ra login killer 123456

and press Enter. Now you are in full control of the server.

- How does remote control work?

The server is controlled via entering certain commands into the game console. All commands must begin with ra, for example:

ra sv_timelimit 100

The full list of available commands:

ra help
