You will also need the gameAdmin mod. So add this to your ModList.txt as well.

You have to be the first person who joins your server and the mod will save you as the server owner automatically. If you own more then one server you can reuse your mod.db files for them. So you don’t have to set it up for every server.
After doing gameAdmin.add * also do Otherwise you have to do it again after server restart.

Hello. Is voteban broken? At 64 slot server 20+ players voted yes and player still not banned. Any settings for that?

I think atm at least 50% of the players have to vote for a successful votekick/ban.

50% players on one team? or total number of players on the server?

Total numbers of players

Updated version to 0.0.3.
Contains several bug fixes and adds console log prints to the server.

gameAdmin was updated to 1.0.1. Added console log prints to the server. And you don’t need gameAdmin.load in your Startup.txt anymore.

    Admin Mod Settings:
  • Show Loading Screen Info

Removed the config file, you can hide the loading screen info now with the mod settings.

i want show ping is diplay tru by default, i have try :
– Region Local Ping
self.showPing = false and true
– Endregion

but dosent work in BetterIngameAdmin\ext\Client_init_.lua (L43)


Because it is in the JavaScript. You can modify it for yourself, but I won’t change that. I will wait till they release Client mod settings and then the client can save the settings like he wants to.

Thanks will be added in the next update, if I don’t forget it.

Hey Bree, could we get a ‘surrender’ vote option incorporated? seems the perfect mod for this option.

what do you mean? there is a surrender vote option.

gameAdmin updated to 1.0.4.
Now you should really don’t need the gameAdmin.load in your Startup.txt anymore. Because the mod does it now by itself in the first Level:Loaded event. More updates on the BetterIngameAdmin will follow. First there will be another release so stay tuned. :sunglasses:
