    Hi Torndeco

    No the Rcon tool does not auto send the reload command, under options there should be a button that allows you to manually send the reload bans command.

    What the program does do thought is auto send write bans just gets rid of the expired temp ban.

    Hope that helps.

    I don't think we will support that, BEC does a good job at doing the auto timed messages so i would recommend you use that.

    Just a quick update !admin alert is done, just adding in optional settings that allow private hives to connect to their own MySQL server database which will allow them to store their player databases on their own servers rather than using local or global databases.

    It's in the Dev build. Won't be long before we release it and you should be able to pick it up via the auto updater :)

    There was an update to the rcon tool a couple of days ago which everyone should downloaded with the auto updater. We are working on a change log but i can say a basic version of the !admin has been added into the rcon tool so let me know how it works out.
