Halflife Admin Mod / News: Recent posts

Admin Mod 2.50.60 released. Now also for AMD64.

We have released an update to Admin Mod, version 2.50.60. This one isn't packed with new features but mostly little changes and additions. We bring you three new scripting functions which might come in handy, cvar_exists(), get_timer() and valid_mapex(), and a math library of fixed point math functions like power, sqrt, exp, log, cos, etc. in math.inc. Two small exploits got fixed and the MySQL version has a new mysql_port cvar to specify the port of your MySQL server should it differ from default.... read more

Preliminary version of updated Admin Mod Windows Installer

For Admin Mod we provide you with a small script, called install_admin, that you can use to install Admin Mod for the various MODs that you want to use Admin Mod on. The Windows version (install_admin.vbs) will also handle the peculiarities of the Steam platform on Windows.

Given the dynamic nature of Steam, it can happen that the installer won't work in all cases. For example, the current installer still relies on Steam account names being valid email addresses since that is what they had to be in the past. Meanwhile Steam has changed and you don't have to use an email address for your account name anymore.... read more

Admin Mod version 2.50.59 released

We have released a new version of Admin Mod: 2.50.59. The main reason for this update were the crashes of Linux servers caused by a recent Steam update. The server engine interface was changed in a way making it incompatible with the one of 311x servers. Thus you will need binaries of Metamod and its plugins which are specially compiled for either a 311x (Non-Steam) or a 112x (Steam) server. The normal Admin Mod is targeted at Steam servers. If you run a 311x Linux server then you have to get replacement binaries for Admin Mod and Metamod which we provide on our downloads page[1].... read more

A new beta to handle DoD IDs and more: 2.50.55

DoD Retail 1.0 brought us new authentication ids of the form VALVE_a:b.
The recentyly released HLDS server update 1.1.1.c has changed the format
again. Valve and Steam ids now look like this: VALVE_x:y:z (Steam ids:
STEAM_x:y:z). We have followed suit and have adpated Admin Mod to be
able to handle these new formats.

In addition, we have also updated the Small core of Admin Mod to version
1.8.4, have made changes to the MySQL version and other minor fixes. If
you'd like to participate in the testing, you can find the beta 2.50.55
on the beta download page[1]. Please keep in mind that this download is
flagged "beta", which means it comes with no installer or examples or
help. You should know how to install Admin Mod by hand if you want to
use it.... read more
