    About the maintainer:

    MotdMod started as a personal project of mine that I worked on for about a year and a half. I now have the time and resources to fully support its growth and release a SourceMod plugin for the community. I created this because I wanted to learn new front-end technologies and create tools that help gaming communities; which is my passion. I myself have been running game servers for over a decade and one thing that was always a pain was updating and managing 20+ game serversí motd pages; I saw lots of potential and tried other solutions that were not satisfying for our players -- the time and money to maintain a decent looking motd is why I believe there needed to be a free motd creator solution available for anyone. MotdMod gives game server operators more choices as an alternative to other motd ad providers.

    1.0.0 - Initial plugin release tested on CS:GO, CS:S, TF2, DOD:S. Will add support for other games on request.

    MotdMod is currently running on a few hundred servers for the last year (beta testing) with great fill rates. Check it out:

    Little biased as I assisted in writing the plugin, but HeLLsGamers has used it in beta for 8+ months on 40+ servers, and we are very satisfied with the results.
    I'm the Director of Development for a community called HeLLsGamers.

    Help for CS:GO Servers:

    If you install the plugin and your game server is not showing up on your MotdMod servers list, follow the below instructions.

    If your server has sv_hibernate_when_empty 0 set in your server.cfg:

    - MotdMod will authenticate immediately when you load the plugin.

    If your server has sv_hibernate_when_empty 1 (default value):

    - MotdMod will not authenticate until you/a player joins the game server to trigger the server from hibernation. This is due to Web API Calls and Timers cannot run when server is hibernating.

    Hi Vampires66,
    Thank you for the feedback.

    We are working hard to add these planned features.

    All countries are supported.

    I will have accurate rates to publish in a few weeks as we are currently ramping up and the ads are optimizing.

    The first stats tracking we have in the dashboard is daily Motd Views and in a few weeks the graph will show Ad Views and CPM per day.

    We appreciate your patience as we are new and growing MotdMod's features based on community feedback!

    Why have you made a desktop client when it can all be done via a website?
