[glow=red,2,300]DISCLAIMER: This script might not be useful or work at all for you. Use at your own risk.[/glow]

I wrote this MOTD randomizer for my game servers (to give people something to read during map changes, kinda like in COD where you get random quotes after you died).
Files: http://nexu.pwner.or...ys/motd-update/
It's a shell script and rcon binary for Linux. You don't need shell access to the game-server machine since it's all done through RCON.

Example usage:

Let say you game server ip is 1.2.3.4 running on port 27960 and the rcon password is secretz.
./motd-update.sh 1.2.3.4:27960 secretz

This will update the MOTD on the game server once, taken a random quote from the text file quotes.txt (lines in quotes.txt should not exceed 70 characters per line or it will not fit on the loading screen!). There is an example quotes.txt included (the one i'm currently using for Intribe Cuddle Room and Intribe Cuddle Inn).

If you wants to update the MOTD every 10 minutes:
while true; do ./motd-update.sh 1.2.3.4:27960 secretz; sleep 600; done

Best would be to run this in a screen session.

Sorry for bumping an old topic..

I was just wondering if you had the sources for "qcmd" binary? I'm working on a (Perl) script for my own server, and I was looking for a way to remotely execute rcon commands without joining to the server..

Thanks for the script btw. Simple and works well. :P

Hi Cene,

i've alredy done something like this in Mandingo, and i've stripped out needed code due a similar request in the past.

You can find code here

http://www.urtitalia...wtopic.php?8551 (Urban Terror italian community)

Programming language is perl too.

Bye
