    Simplistic Home LAN Administration

    Hi folks,

    I play LAN games now and again with a friend using an XP PC and Vista laptop. I would like to be able to make changes to the game on the fly. I'm sure I used to be able to do this with a server admin web page in UT2004.

    I tried following the "Creating a web admin server" sticky but once I got to the web page I couldn't login. I'm not sure where to put the commands to set an admin password etc.

    Is there any simple way to do what I want?

    Thanks in advance.


    P.S. Why Epic, why???!!

    edit the utgame.ini
    most likely if you are running a non-dedicated server you will find the the utgame.ini in the

    C:\Documents and Settings\usernamehere\My Documents\My Games\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\Config folder

    or if it is dedicated with the --nohome switch you should find it in the
    C:\Program Files\Unreal Tournament 3\UTGame\config folder.

    in the utgame.ini
    find the section [Engine.AccessControl]
    add the line (if it doesnt exist)
    AdminPassword=puturpasswordhere

    save the changes, start server, and should be able to login with any username, and the password u set above.

      Thanks for the reply. I already did that.

      In game I try F10->AdminLogin "mypassword" (without inverted commas).

      Should I get any confirmation that it has logged me in?

      If I try another command such as "AdminRestartMap", nothing happens.

      Thanks for the help.

        ye it says something like "Player has logged in as admin"

        Also the admin commands are kinda limited compared to U1, UT, UT2k4, etc..

        try
        Adminchangemap <mapname>

        example:
        Adminchangemap DM-Deck

          Hmmm, I don't get any login notification so I guess it isn't working. Thanks for the input though, guess I'll have to look over everything again.
