Server Configs

Server configs contain the settings necessary for ETF2L matches and whitelists enforce the unlockable weapon restrictions.

To install ETF2L configs on your server, upload the .cfg and .txt files to your server’s orangebox/tf/cfg folder. You must execute the appropriate ETF2L config before any league match, by using the “exec [configname]” command.

ETF2L configs and whitelists can be downloaded separately or as a package:

If you need just the latest configs and whitelists, download [this] package.

If you want the appropriate configs to be executed automatically*, download
the [extra pack] containing all ETF2L and map-specific configs.

* Configs will be executed automatically only for maps that are not played in both 6v6 and 9v9 in ETF2L at this time.

Alternatively, if you use [TFTrue], it will automatically download the latest configs and whitelists and execute them when appropriate.

If you want to have a graphic overview of the whitelists, visit [whitelist.tf]
