RCON commands in source games
Solution

Rcon Commands

Rcon stands for "Remote Control". Rcon gives total control over your server. It is a very powerful tool, so we suggest only giving the rcon password to those people that you completely trust. To use Rcon, login by typing the following command, replacing "yourpassword" with the Rcon password on your server.

rcon_password yourpassword

Remember - You must type rcon in front of any rcon command you are using!

For example:

rcon say hello world

Staring Money mp_startmoney x This integer value controls the amount that players start with at the beginning of a new map or when they join a server. 800 is the default and the minimum value, while 16000 is the maximum.

Fading mp_fadetoblack x This is also to combat ghosting, but is more harsh. 0 will have no affect on the game, while 1 will disable chasecam and any sort of death cam at all. The client's screen fades to black instantly after death. One boon of this setting is that corpses stay around for the entire round. Useful for clan matches.
Buying Time mp_buytime x A floating point (decimal) value to determine the buy time in minutes. E.g., '1.25' equals one minute and fifteen seconds of buy time (this is not the pause, but the time where it is legal to purchase stuff). The minimum value is 0.25 and there is no maximum.
Win Limit mp_winlimit x This, of course, is an integer (whole number). When a team reaches this amount of wins (before the timelimit or the roundlimit is reached), it has won the map. 0, or disabled, is the default.
Spectators allow_spectators x Setting to 1 will allow spectators, while 0 will disallow them. These are non-playing spectators, not dead people.
