I am setting up a Counterstrike: Global Offensive server and I was wondering if I could increase the length of the warm up around? Currently it is about 30 seconds but I'd like to customise this yet can't find any setting that allows this.

I assume this would be something that is customised per game mode in gamemodes_server.txt but I have been unable to find anything on Google or in the documentation explaining how to change this.

Is it possible to increase the length of the warmup round?

From what I could find in the console you have to use:

MP_warmuptime 60

This would set the warmup time to 60 seconds. The standard is at 25 seconds and the minimum is 5 seconds.

Also as a tip for next time: in the console you can do find "text" and it will find all console commands with that text in it.

  • i'm assuming you know how to run and startup a server. if not i'll edit my post later cause i would have to look that up myself aswell Commented Aug 29, 2012 at 11:13
  • yeah I've got the server up and running - just trying to customise many of the settings. Thanks for the 'find' tip though, I wasn't aware of that!
