Reply With Quote #1

So whenever CSGO server receive an update, it will always set my custom game mode competitive/casual setting back to default, is there like a plugin or any other ways to prevent this from happening ?

Thanks for the help

How do you update?

Do you use validate? (it will overwrite gamemode_competitive.cfg e.g)

Yeps.

Because it will overwrite files =)

Quote:
Validate is a command that will check all the server files to make sure they match the SteamCMD files. This command is useful if you think that files may be missing or corrupted.

Note: Validation will overwrite any files that have been changed. This may cause issues with customized servers. For example, if you customize mapcycle.txt, this file will be overwritten to the server default. Any files that are not part of the default installation will not be affected.
It is recommended you use this command only on initial installation and if there are server issues.

Create that file, and add your cvars there

Why you would do that ?

CSGO devs have made own game mode settings: gamemode_competitive.cfg
which over take cvars what you change in server.cfg.

So, CSGO devs made also override config file: gamemode_competitive_server.cfg
to over take cvars what gamemode_competitive.cfg change.

You can read/look from gamemodes.txt
Code:
...
                "competitive"
                {
                    "value"                "1"
                    "nameID"            "#SFUI_GameModeCompetitive"
                    "descID"            "#SFUI_GameModeCompetitiveDesc"
                    "descID_List"        "#SFUI_GameModeCompetitiveDescList"
                    "uid"                "2"
                    "maxplayers"        "10"

                    // These are the descriptive ui elements to display in the information box on.
                    // These key/values should be pairs of strings.  The "key" will appear in the left
                    // column, the "value" will appear in the right column.
                    "ui"
                    {
                        "0"        { "label" "#SFUI_CashColon"                "value" "$800" }

                    }

Yes, it is meant for that.
As long as you run game_type 0; game_mode 1 (competitive) = gamemode_competitive_server.cfg
