  3. Refer to the Example Configuration below and change the respective settings where you need to do so in order to configure your server to your desires.


//Example config. Note that everything behind // is ignored by the game

//Try to keep cvar-values as short as possible. Otherwise you might get "info string length exceeded" errors on your server


//*** Administrator Info, shows in some gamebrowsers ***

sets " Admin" "adminname" //Uses a space in front so it shows up at the top of the properties list

//*** General Game Settings ***

set sv_maxclients "8" //max clientslots available on the server, using more than 16 is not advised. It can cause lag and most maps are not built for it. Going over 24 can cause nasty bugs.

The client will try to download <sv_dlURL>/q3ut4/mapname.pk3. So if your server is running ut4_coolmap and sv_dlURL is set to 'yoursite.com/maps', make sure the maps is hosted at http://www.yoursite.com/maps/q3ut4/ut4_coolmap.pk3.
