Outlaws of the Old West: How to Use the New Admin Tools

Here is a guide on how to use the new admin tools added in Patch 1.2.9, hope this guide will help you.

 

Initial Setup

First thing that needs to be setup is your SteamID needs to be added to the AdminList.txt file.

AppData\Local\Outlaws\Saved\AdminList.txt

The SteamID is the 17 digit number associated with your Steam account. You can use Steam ID Finder[steamidfinder.com] to find your number.

Once you have your ID added load up Outlaws, if this is on a server it’s best to restart the server.

Bring up the console by holding Shift and pressing the tilde key
