    Thee things I need to know how to do:

    1. Setting a map rotation
    2. Enabling rtv, nominate

    And finally

    3. Making it so the server recognizes me as an admin so I can do various admin stuff with it in-game

    1. edit the mapcycle.txt file, located in the tf folder
    2. Admin package specific, with mani it is located in the mani_server.cfg in the cfg folder, with sourcemod I don't know the specifics but it would be somewhere in the sourcemod section of the addons folder...i think
    3. Also depends on the admin package, with mani you need to add yourself to the clients.txt file in the mani folder, which is in the cfg folder. In sourcemod you need to go to addons/sourcemod/configs and add your steam id to either the admins_simple file or the admins file, with the flags you require, if you own the server you probably want z, the admins.cfg does a brief explanation of how to set it up

    If sourcemod is installed:

    tf/addons/sourcemod/plugins

    Make sure that rockthevote.smx and mapchooser.smx are in that folder, and not in the 'disabled' folder in the plugins directory (basically you pull them out of hte disabled folder to enable them).

    In:
    tf/addons/sourcemod/config
    find
    admins_simple.ini

    put who you want as admins in the following format at teh bottom of that file:

    ID, Flags, //comment. There's instructions at the top of the file commented out (//means it's for notes and doesn't actually do anything.

    Here some of my admins_simple.ini:
    Code:
    "STEAM_1:0:1386928"      "5:z" 	// me  **
    "STEAM_1:1:XXXXXXXX" "1:bg"  	//GarbageMan - pl_coastline **
    "STEAM_1:1:XXXXXXXX" "1:bg" 	//Nova Silisko - cp_thermal **
    "STEAM_1:1:XXXXXXXX" "2:bcgk"  	//Mechtroid - cp_assault grounds  **
    "STEAM_1:0:XXXXXXXX" "2:bcgk"  	//Ravidge - cp_silvertrail **
    "STEAM_1:1:XXXXXXXX" "2:bcgk"  	//Chrono - pl_cumulus **
    "STEAM_1:1:XXXXXXXX" "2:bcgk"   //MungoKing - cp_radium
    "STEAM_1:0:XXXXXXXX" "2:bcgk"  	//MrMuffinMan - cp_vulture **
    I've XX'd out other people's steam ID as they aren't mine to give out, but there ya go

    In all fairness, if I wasn't a noob I'm sure I'd prefer the non-simple version as well :)

    One more question.

    Instant respawn. What do I have to mess around with to get it?

    I can't tell you that. I'd feel as guilty as if I had told a new person in town where to find a drug dealer.
