[ANY] Cvar Configs Updater

1. Use the "sm_configs_backup" command.
  • Backs up ".cfg" files from \cfg\sourcemod\ to a folder named \backup_20120726 (whatever is todays date).

  • Ignores (does not edit or backup) your "sm_warmode_off.cfg"; "sm_warmode_on.cfg" and "sourcemod.cfg" configs.

  • Ignores configs you specified with the "sm_configs_ignore" cvar.

  • Changes to the current map so plugins auto make their cvar configs.

2. Use the "sm_configs_compare" command.
  • Checks for matching configs in the backup folder.

  • Opens both files and lists the new and old values of changed cvars.

  • Only shows cvars which exist in both configs, not those which have been added or removed.

3. Use the "sm_configs_update" command.
  • Checks for matching configs in the backup folder.

  • Opens both files and updates the new configs with the old cvar values.

  • Optionally with sm_configs_comment cvar set to "1", cvars which are using the default value will be commented out. (Prevents cvars not being read in at least L4D2 when a server has too many cvars/configs.)

  • Changes to the current map so the game uses the updated cvar values.

  • Don't Fear The Reaper

  • disawar1

  • id5473

  • The 5th Survivor
