drop "SetSetting hardcore_mode 1" into your dedi server cfg file and prepare to be dominated by strong aimers wielding the AR
when you launch your server it will spew all this junk:
some of these are probably able to successfully be changed for a dedicated ranked server (this is how I found the hardcore thing). If you find anything interesting, post it here . . . I am going to try and tinker with respawn time as I want to see how hardcore plays with longer respawn.
edit: there are around 250 of these, _more than shown in this screen_, though many are duplicated.
edit2: I want to give a nod to the '#2BCA custom maps HC' server, when I realized that there was a HC dedi out there it prompted me to figure out how to get one up and running.
