The Team Fortress 2 community needed a central hub for all competitively used whitelists. Furthermore, manually writing whitelists was a pain, so an automated tool would be greatly beneficial.
Stock weapons can not be blocked by the item whitelists and will show an error line blocking your 'stock weapon' in the console when executing the whitelist. Ultimately, you will end up with stock weapons as your loadout. However, there is a SourceMod plugin which allows you to disable stock weapons.
If your server is running TFTrue, you only need the whitelist ID/preset to download and execute the whitelist on your server.
rcon tftrue_whitelist_id <id/preset name>
This downloads the most up to date version of the whitelist file and executes it. Work without requiring mp_tournament to be enabled.
There is a SourceMod plugin whitelist.tf downloader which allows for automatic downloads of item whitelists to your server.
rcon sm_whitelist_id <id/preset name>
This downloads the latest version of the whitelist and executes it.
First, you need FTP or admin/game panel access to upload the whitelist .txt file into the tf/cfg folder of the match server.
To activate the whitelist type the following in your console. (If you have a game panel, you can leave out the 'rcon' part).
rcon mp_tournament_whitelist "cfg/whitelist_filename.txt"
This will load the whitelist and restart the tournament mode. Only after this restart will the whitelist take effect.
Your whitelist probably automatically allows all new items that are added to the game. Check the 'Share url' in your whitelist or go to
http://whitelist.tf/whitelist_filename.txt and download the newest version of your whitelist file.
Check out here what the content of the whitelist file is.
Generate the whitelist you'd like to see added or changed, contact me (Wiethoofd) and I will update/add the whitelist.
You can donate and pick your own filename/share URL. If you are an administrator of a league we can have a chat and you preset(s) may end up in the menu as a default option.
