Startup Arguments

Startup Arguments

Startup arguments can be used to customize the way a server is started as well as to pass certain settings to a server that, depending on the game, may not be edited in typical configuration files. The startup arguments you enter will be appended to the command that starts your server. Therefore, you can write the arguments as you would when starting a server from the command line (e.g. when using the “srcds_run” command for most Steam games).

Supported startup arguments vary between games. To find out what arguments are supported, have a look at the documentation of the game in question.

Note: Some arguments are set by Gametron and cannot be modified (e.g. -Xmx for Minecraft and -maxplayers for Counter-Strike).
