Hello, FMC has had a BF4 server for a year now and up till now we have just admin the server thru our game server host admin daemon.
That has been sufficient till recently. Our server has been more populated and we need another option to remotely and automatically admin our server when no admin is around.
Obviously I`ve heard of ProCon, but never worked with it. I was told of RCONNET the other day and have our server added to the site, but I see in order to use even but 1 plugin, we will have to pay for its services.
Which program has better value for the money?
Is their another option?
For starters we have the need to state our simple few rules, but don't want them cluttering up the chat area.
Being able to kick/ban would be beneficial along with the ability to change maps on the fly.
Most of these abilities can be achieved with our server deamon, but we also would like to have the ability to...
Auto kick high ping players
Balance Teams
Kill streak Announcer
Possible votemap
Teamkill punisher as well as a language filter.
In short, what admin tool does most of these features for the best $$$ value?
Is there a free option?
Thanks for your opinions.

pssstt buddy !!

go to phogue dot net

its free, and the plugins will do all of that you list, not sure about the killstreak ANNOUNCE - but you can certainly edit the various plugins that use the chat to use the chat area as little or as much as you want.

Everything you have asked for can be done by Procon for free, I have never used RCONNET but if it costs money theres probably a good reason why I haven't used it.

The only caveat to using procon is you will need to have it "hosted" (either locally or through a provider) 24/7 as when it's not running it doesn't do anything. That seems to trip some people up a bit

That's our hangup. No one can host it on their PC full time. Besides I hear its better to use it on a commercialy hosted site if you want to use the layers.

I would talk to your BF4 server provider, they may also be able to host the procon layer for you for a small adder.
