  • This is not a: "OLOLOL Wannta Hax a fkn serv hlp plx xDDD" Thread. ^^ Hey. I want to make a Script for my server, that changes every minute the RconPassword. The Password will be Generated then. But how can i read out the Pass? I tried: [lua] function go() local RconPass = GetConVar("rcon_password"):GetString() print (RconPass) end concommand.Add("go",go) [/lua] I get a Nil Value. But when i write sbox_maxprops instead rcon_password. The console gives out the Number. Please help :D
  • It's because you cannot grab the rcon password from that command, as far as I know it's simply a cl command to authenticate the rcon password with the server. I could be completely wrong, though.
  • :/ How can i authentificate. To change the rcon password, i need the Rcon pass. How can i get it automaticly?

  • look. I want that my script changes every minute the Rcon password. Just think about, the rcon password is now... google And my script generates a new. 5R573ASDBV then i have to write rcon rcon_password generated code But if the rcon pass is changed, then i have to authentificate again.. there with rcon_password "5R573ASDBV" and then to create a new one rcon rcon_password "ewreg483u9tds" and so on. Is there a Lua Function that changes the rcon password?
  • If you're using a script to change the rcon password why not just add the new password to a variable and send that variable to yourself when you request it. Though I can not see the point in this being any use what so ever but a pain in the ass having to get the password, to change something. It seems so, wrong in a way. Pointless.
  • If i'm not mistaken rcon_password is one of the blocked console commands that you cannot do from lua. I do not think that you will even be able to set the rcon password from a lua script.
  • Some people Tried to hack my server ^^ But okay. I see there is no chance to do it. Anyway Thank you for your time ^^
  • Then change your password to some thing else.

  • [QUOTE=p3acemak3r;16539651]Some people Tried to hack my server ^^[/QUOTE] then just set the rcon password to something noone will ever guess, like 489498489489415648940148948hj4d89h4d89489h4d8h4s89z48h <-- wow lots of 4's and use an admin mod.
  • If you set your password to > 500 characters, it is physically impossible to hack. Because you can't use it. Source gives a 'Clamping' error when you try to use it.
  • Wow, that's what i need. thx flap ... No Really. I try to fix my Problem and so on. Thanks ^^
