What does it bring me?

Admin rights are the "absolute rights" on a Battlefield server. With the Admin rights one is able to execute every RCON command. In order to become an admin it is only necessary to install the Procon layer.

Alternatives

Alternatively, you can read our tutorial on AdKats (an extended admin plugin). (For more advanced users, this plug-in does not provide direct access to the RCON console from the game, so I recommend to finish the tutorial until after creating the account.) This is how The pictures on the right are once again illustrative. Now it is explained step by step how to create an Admin account in Procon.

Preparation

Open the web interface of your Battlefield Gameserver and open the Procon Layer tab and install it if you have not already done so. There you will also find a download link for the Procon Client. Once you have downloaded it, you can open it and connect to the server using the data in the Web Interface on the Procon Layer tab. Once the connection is established, open the server and click on the "Parent Control Layer" tab. From there you change into the subtab accounts.

Create account

There you have to create a new user, which you edit afterwards (the name of the user must match your in-game Battlefield name). Now you only have to give the user all rights. Of course, you can not assign all rights to the user (eg if you want to give your friend only a few rights). All rights for a full access are shown in one of the enclosed pictures. Now you only have to confirm your changes. Now if you have given him all rights, you will see in the account selection that you have "full" rights. This means that you can do everything you can do with the plugins and the RCON console.

Plugins

Now we come to plugin this probably will be the easiest. For the basic ingame command I would recommend the preinstalled but still deactivated plugin "In-Game Admin". If you do not have the functionality, you can look at the AdKats plugin! To this plugin there is already a tutorial here in the forum. Now you only have to restart the Procon layer in the web interface and you're done.

Where to Start?

This page will show you how to access a Battlefield server's RCON Console. It is very simple, and all of the commands can be found here: Commands in Battlefield

  • Firstly, go to your server's Web interface: Accessing your Nitrado Webinterface
  • Next, on your Dashboard, look for the Battlefield Information section and copy the RCON Password (screenshot here)
  • Once you have the RCON password, go to Tools > RCON Console
  • Enter the command: login.plainText <password> where password is the RCON Password you copied
  • The console will state 'The action was successful' if you've entered the password correctly. (screenshot here)
  • You are now logged in as Admin and can use any commands.
