Bot management on a dedicated server¶
To have access to the bot’s menus and commands, you need to in a server console specify a password and a key from which the password will be read.
To specify a password, you must enter in the console the following cvar
yb_password botpassword where
botpassword is the password you specified.
To specify a key, you must enter in the console the following cvar
yb_password_key _ybpw, where
_ybpw is the key you specified.
Then, in a client console you must enter the following commandline in the console
setinfo _ybpw botpassword to have access to the commands and menus of the bot.
To have access to graph commands, you need to enter in the console the following command
yb g acquire_editor. Make sure that no one has entered this command before you, who has the password from the bot. Otherwise, you won’t be able to access graph commands until that player removes graph editing rights.
To revoke the rights to edit graphs, you must enter in the console the following command:
yb g release_editor.
