quit Restart Server Restarts your server
mp_startmoney x Staring Money 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.
mp_logdetail x Deatailed Log Use this bitwise svar to control the depth of your logs. Be warned, these options can eat away hard drive space and CPU cycles. Use 0, the default, to log no attacks, 1 to log enemy attacks, 2 to log teammate attacks, and 3 to log both.
 
mp_playerid x Player ID This variable controls what players see when they put their crosshair over an enemy, a hostage, or a teammate. At 0 (the default), the player see's all popups with team colors. At 1, the player sees their teammates and hostages, with team colors. At 2, players see no popups.
mp_fadetoblack x Fading 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.
mp_buytime x Buying Time 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.
mp_winlimit x Win Limit 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.
 
allow_spectators x Spectators Setting to 1 will allow spectators, while 0 will disallow them. These are non-playing spectators, not dead people.
mp_autokick x Team Killer Banning This variable is defaulted to 1. Toggles automatic team-killer banning and kicking of idle clients - Setting of 1 = 'on', and 0 = 'off'.
mp_autoteambalance x Team Balancing This variable is defaulted to 1. Toggles the forcing of clients to join teams to make it balanced - Setting of 1 = 'on', and 0 = 'off'.

mp_footsteps x Hear Footsteps This variable is defaulted to 1. Toggles footstep sounds - Setting of 1 = 'on', and 0 = 'off'.
mp_freezetime x Freeze Players For Buying This variable is defaulted to 6. Sets the amount of "freeze" time at the beginning of each round to buy weapons and equipment - Use a setting of '0' to disable.
mp_hostagepenalty x Hostage Kill Kicking This variable is defaulted to 0, or disabled. Sets the number of hostages a player can kill before they are booted from the server.
mp_limitteams x Number of more players on team can have over another This variable is defaulted to 2. Sets the maximum number of players that one team can have more than the other team - Use a setting of '0' to completely disable the team limiting.
mp_logmessages x Log Chat Messages This variable is defaulted to 1. Toggles logging of chat messages in the log files - Setting of 1 = 'on', and 0 = 'off'.
mp_mapvoteratio x Map Vote Ration This variable is defaulted to 0.6. Set the ratio of players required to vote on the same map before a map will change. The default is 0.6 , which means that 60% of the players on a server must vote on the same map in order for the server to change to that map. The range is 0.0-1.0.
mp_kickpercent x Kick Vote Ration This variable is defaulted to 0.66. Set the ratio of players on someone's team required to vote to kick the "someone." The default is 0.66, which means that 66% (2/3rds) of the players on his team must vote him off in order for him to be kicked. The range is 0.0-1.0.
mp_tkpunish x Team Kill Punishing This variable is defaulted to 1. Toggles the forcing of a player to sit out the next round if he has just killed a teammate - Setting of 1 = 'on', and 0 = 'off'.
