    What is your suggestion for?:
    Game Servers
    Brief title of your suggestion:
    Add Server console command to allow joining from Steam friends list
    Tell us your suggestion:
    "cl_join_advertise 2" does as title says, I know we have asked you to do this before bor3d, unsure what happened and it reset but would be much appreciated if this could be set again, unless of course there is some server side reasoning behind it being off.​

    That's a client command, hence the "cl". You have to put that in your autoexec.cfg. Nothing I do on the server-end will affect that.

    Is there a way to make it so the server forces this to the clients by chance?

    No, it's a client command. Servers cannot enforce client commands, that would lead to a number of security issues.

    Odd, I could of sworn we found a way to set it before, maybe we just all set it manually not a big deal :D. Thanks for the quick response!
