Installing Game Modes

  3. Check to see if the gamemode you require is already setup. 
  4. If it is, simply select Install next to the game mode's listing. If you do not see the game mode you require listed, please contact us for further assistance.
  5. Wait for the installation to complete.

Switching Game Modes

You can simply switch your server to the gamemode by executing the command 'gamemode %name%' through the web console.

For instance, 'gamemode murder', 'gamemode darkrp', 'gamemode prop_hunt'. Enter all commands without quotes.

    Where is TTT on the list?

    Hey Patrick - just enter 'terrortown' into the gamemode box in the Commandline Manager (Step 5 above) or execute 'gamemode terrortown' in the Web Console. TTT files are on the server by default.

    When ever I save my command line it changes it back to prop_hun and it also changes the map?
