SteamAppID

@Megaoerti: The change with the bot count and the unknown value can't be correct :/

Yes you're right, but i worry about the SteamAppID set as a 2 byte value 'F000'. This isn't zero?!

F0 is in decimal 240, which stands for CS: Source (see Steam Application IDs) --King2500 14:53, 15 Aug 2005 (PDT)
ok ... i forgot the sweet little endian of these two bytes *g* --MEGAOerti 13:17, 16 Aug 2005 (PDT)

Protocol

Source seems to handle multiple packet replies differently. It also sends the 0xFFFFFFFE header followed by the request id. But then the next byte contains the total number of packets, the one after the current packet number. Also Source does not seem to start all "actual" replies with 0xFFFFFFFF (only contained the first packet).

Is this completely right or did I miss something? If it is it will have to be updated in the main page.

SteamAppID Again

Either I'm being blind and stupid, or do Goldsource a2s_info replies not include an AppID... I think I should point out that I may be both blind and stupid, but I'm just not seeing it

Counter-strike server reply format

I couldn't find anything about CS1.6 servers, AFAIK this is their reply format for A2S_INFO. There is more after this but I dont know what it is.

Data Type Comment
Type byte Should be equal to 'm'
IP string The server's IP address and port
Server Name string The server's name, eg: "Recoil NZ CS Server #1"
Map string The current map being played, eg: "de_dust"
Game Directory string The name of the folder containing the game files, ie: "cstrike"
Game Description string A friendly string name for the game type, ie: "Counter-Strike"
Number of players byte The number of players currently on the server
Maximum players byte Maximum allowed players for the server
 ??? byte A '/'
Dedicated byte 'l' for listen, 'd' for dedicated
OS byte Host operating system. 'l' for Linux, 'w' for Windows
Password byte If set to 0x01, a password is required to join this server
Secure byte If set to 0x01, this server is VAC secured
 ??? string "www.counter-strike.net"

More information to add to this article

The French version of this article now has more information than this one (the english version). I have asked the person that is currently updating the French article if it were possible to add the same information to the English version. If anyone else has the time to do it as well, please step forth! Perhaps we need a new template to "tag" situations such as these... a template like {{TranslationUpdate}}, but for any language (specified when the template is used), rather than just for the English version. --Etset 14:23, 31 Jan 2008 (PST)

Everything is fine except the server name (in blue) : a NUL byte is inserted between each character. There is the same effect with the player names on the A2S_PLAYER query. What about? --Cortexd 17:55, 17 Feb 2008 (PST)

GoldSource RCON Protocol

Hi all,

This is probably an old topic - but is there any definitions for "GoldSource" aka "Classic" rcon packet requests/responses. Is this the correct place to start one ?

I am slowly working my way through the protocol so I may be able to contribute in some areas as well.

Player connection time

Does anyone know what a player connection time of -1 (0x000080bf) stands for? Maybe someting like "is connecting"? --Koraktor 23:55, 7 Aug 2008 (PDT)

A2S_SERVERQUERY_GETCHALLENGE not working since last HLDS update

GoldSrc servers do not respond to A2S_SERVERQUERY_GETCHALLENGE requests since the last HLDS update (GoldSrc protocol version 48). Does anyone know what has changed? Or is this a bug? --Koraktor 07:42, 2 Nov 2008 (PST)

Indeed, kept me busy for quite some time too, but got the solution with the help of some others:

I'm using the function below. If you look closely you discover that the 5th byte has changed to 55 instead of 57 and it's now followed by 4 times \xFF .... dunno how, why and so on, but it works!

function getQuery($queryType) {
	switch($queryType)
	{
		case "A2S_SERVERQUERY_GETCHALLENGE":
		return "\xFF\xFF\xFF\xFF\x55\xFF\xFF\xFF\xFF";
		break;

		case "A2S_INFO":
		return "\xFF\xFF\xFF\xFFTSource Engine Query\x00";
		break;

		case "A2S_PLAYER":
		return sprintf("\xFF\xFF\xFF\xFF\x55%s", $this->getChallenge());
		break;
		}
	}

Hope this works for you too  :) —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Ouwe tosti (talkcontribs).

"Does anyone know what has changed? Or is this a bug?"

Current protocol 48 bugs:

  • A2S_SERVERQUERY_GETCHALLENGE does not work at all, use A2S_PLAYER or A2S_RULES instead with ffffffffh (-1) as challenge.
  • The map name from A2S_INFO is only updated when players are present.
  • Hostname and bot flag from A2S_INFO are only updated when the map changes.
  • Server rules from A2S_RULES, like amx_nextmap or mp_timeleft, are only updated when the map changes.
  • mp_timelimit is off by a few minutes (only the value returned by A2S_RULES, rcon is ok though).
  • bot count is now a bot flag, 1 means there were only bots during map change.

I'm not exactly sure which part of the query info gets updated when so take these bug descriptions with a grain of salt. Example, I join an empty server and the map name gets updated, but mp_timeleft is still wrong. I join a server with bots that also has a plugin that updates the server name with the time left, but only the map name gets updated via the query, not the hostname. (You can check the actual full-length hostname by typing status in console.)

--pizzahut 23:30, 2 Nov 2008 (PST)

I can, and I think everyone else can, confirm the above things written by pizzahut. GoldSource servers switched to the Source protocol, which is absolutely fine, but the implementation is incorrect (for former GoldSource servers only). These bugs are now within there for over 2 months, Valve got notified of it by people whos word should have at least a little weight for that matter (e.g. the HLSW staff) long ago and it's their very own server browser that displays these data as wrong as they are reported by the server (of course), still nothing was fixed. I'm one of the many coders that work in some way with this data and are annoyed by it while threads over this in the Steam forums just died. So I vote for putting information about these problems to the main page, as it has been a steady situation for over 2 months now.
These "unwanted features" have become part of the protocol in a way, everyone starting to work with it coming to this Wiki has to deal with them. Currently they will see the information how they could query the bot counter or current map and not everyone is suspecting such additional information in the comments page, so people will probably waste time over trying to find out the problem in their code that makes the bot counter or map be displayed wrong until they notice it isn't their fault.
However, I am new to this Wiki (and to public Wikis in general), so I didn't want to do such a change myself straight away, maybe some people even consider that being rude or whatever. Of course I would be happy if that could also catch the attention of Valve but, to be honest, I doubt that. But at least let us save newcomers some time. Any comments on that from others?
--xOR 19:55, 5 Jan 2009 (GMT+1)

Looks like all GoldSource servers are responding with the Source protocol format. You will have to use appids to tell source/goldsource servers apart (IE CS/CSS). --The MAZZTer 09:47, 9 Nov 2008 (PST)

A2S_SERVERQUERY_GETCHALLENGE seems to be ignored, because it is changed. It is now 0x55 instead of 0x57 (and Steam seems to send an extra Int32 0 after it, not sure what that is). --The MAZZTer 13:52, 10 Nov 2008 (PST)

The A2S_SERVERQUERY_GETCHALLENGE hasn't "changed", it stopped working with the update. Steam apparently never used it. The header 0x55 belongs to a A2S_PLAYER request. The additional (long) 0 is an invalid challenge, therefore the server responds with a S2C_CHALLENGE containing a valid challenge. --Koraktor 10:06, 13 Nov 2008 (PST)

I put a warning on the main page about this, but it'd be really nice to know if this is a permanent change. Also, it'd be nice to know if this query will stop working in Source servers in the future. --BarkerJr 09:07, 26 Nov 2008 (PST)

Goldsource servers are still responding to the old challenge method. Just send the default header with "challenge rcon\n" after it. The server will send back a packet with the default header followed by: "challenge rcon (unsigned int)\n\0" where (unsigned int) is the challenge number.--Chris03 12:07, 30 Dec 2008 (GMT-5)

Made a new wiki page for this, Half-Life 1 Engine Bug Reports. --pizzahut 20:03, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

No longer works in Left4Dead, either -BarkerJr 03:35, 4 October 2009 (UTC) It seems A2S_PLAYER and A2S_RULES are broken, too.[1] -BarkerJr

Source: S2A_RULES doesn't return all rules

Since an update in the past weeks the S2A_RULES reply doesn't contain all rules. For a vanilla TF2 server example see below. As you can see the last rule (should be tf_gamemode_ctf) is cut off and there's no way to get the rest of the rules. The reply doesn't use split packets and when querying with an additional A2S_RULES (similar to GoldSrc RCON) I get the same response. Is this a (known) bug or did I miss something?

--Koraktor 10:36, 30 August 2009 (UTC)

I have the same issue; at least for TF2, the reply is cut off after 1260 bytes and incomplete. So instead of the 86 rules (according to the rules number) I only get 50 or so, and the rest is lost (cut off in the middle of a string). I tried listening for additional packets but there are none, so it's not split or anything either. Haven't tested with other mods than TF2. I'll add a warning to the main page...

Comparing the English article with the French article, there seem to be a lot of differences... the French send 'V' and 'U' instead of 'D' and 'E', I tested that and I actually get the same replies back, but the packet is still just cut off for TF2 even though the French article even shows an example for a split packet reply...

Frostschutz 18:33, 23 January 2010 (UTC)

Today I found that TF2 does not split the reply for A2S_PLAYER either (tested with +maxplayers 32, and bot -name foooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooobaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar times 32). Here too I only receive one single packet that is 1260 bytes long '\xff\xff\xff\xffD \x00fooooooooooooooooooooooooooooob\x00...' and simply cut off at the end. So it seems that TF2 is lacking the ability to send split packets for the server queries described here.

Frostschutz 15:08, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Oh, that is beautiful. It's not even zero-terminating the string value. --BarkerJr 23:56, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

S2A_INFO2 responses don't match the protocol

Some days ago a bug report for Steam Condenser made me test the library's protocol implementation. A user had problems with a CZ server's reply to A2S_INFO requests. I started tcpdump and did a test run against some servers (the server the user mentioned, some other CZ servers and completely random servers (GoldSrc and Source). The response from all Source servers and part of the GoldSrc servers was ok. But quite a few GoldSrc servers (including the one the user had problems with) replied a packet with a S2A_INFO2 header (0x49), but the packet contents didn't match the description here.

Here's an example of a bad packet:

The part after the version number is "wrong". there should be the EDF (+ HTLV info and tags if available) after the version number. But this seems like total garbage. Is this a bug or intended behavior?

--Koraktor 12:38, 2 April 2010 (UTC)

EDIT: It seems like all responses use a new format. Does anyone know how to parse "extra data" (after the EDF)?

--Koraktor 14:49, 3 April 2010 (UTC)

All I can tell you is that I have the same issues. Your findings may help me actually get the Source TV port now, after implementing it according to the old specification I got a different number + binary data in the Source TV name. If they added new stuff, I wonder why they added it in the middle instead of like at the end. I really hate this protocol... Frostschutz 11:44, 5 April 2010 (UTC)

Challenge number not needed in all cases?

Either I'm beeing stupid or A2S_PLAYER/A2S_RULES do not always require a valid challenge number. Does it depend on the server? I tested it on several servers, e.g. try 82.165.133.27:27015.

FF FF FF FF 55 FF FF FF FF returns directly the player info instead of a challenge number in the reply format of A2S_SERVERQUERY_GETCHALLENGE, and FF FF FF FF 56 FF FF FF FF returns directly the rules.

Apart from that, it even seems that the 4 last bytes can be all kind of numbers (e.g. FF FF FF FF 56 1 3 3 7), it works anyway.

Do you know what it depends on?

As war as I can tell it's not working for the latest version of Team Fortress. Sending FF FF FF FF 55 FF FF FF FF to the Server it will replay with FF FF FF FF 41 ... --Spezifanta 15:37, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

A2A_PING no longer supported?

I've been trying to ping some TF2 servers using A2A_PING packets, but the servers don't respond to these. I've found a conversation from the hlds mailinglist that seems to confirm it's gone [2]. Is this true? If it is, perhaps the info should be removed from the main page, or at least a notification should be added.

I have confirmed that A2A_PING no longer works on CS:S servers and TF2 servers and an appropriate warning has been placed in the A2A_PING section with a link to this talk section and a summarisation of it. --Maggymay 23:58, 27 December 2012 (PST)

A2S_PLAYER should include steam id's

I think it would be great if A2S_PLAYER would include steam id's of the players in the response. Right now it is impossible to really identify the users that are connected to a server without using a plugin or RCON. --Durza007 07:13, 31 July 2012 (PDT) I'm agree with you. It's possible only with sourcemod plugins, but it's a bad idea. --Desire 11:21, 3 September 2012 (PDT)

A2S_PLAYER Challenge issues

I'm updating a SRCDS library for Python and I've come across some issues. If I send A2S_SERVERQUERY_GETCHALLENGE and use the challenge given by the response my A2S_PLAYER queries still receive the 0x41 challenge response. In addition the challenge response from A2S_PLAYER remains fixed unlike A2S_SERVERQUERY_GETCHALLENGE.


My code in Python (given a connected socket) is as follows:

   sock.send('\xFF\xFF\xFF\xFF\x57')
   chal = sock.recv(4096)[5:]
   sock.send('\xFF\xFF\xFF\xFF\x55' + chal)
   # This will always return a \xFF\xFF\xFF\xFF\x41 response
   players_resp = sock.recv(4096)
Interesting. Which games did you try this against? Maybe it's another individual exception in the protocol. A lot of stuff seems to be slowly becoming deprecated. A2S_SERVERQUERY_GETCHALLENGE was previously reported on this Talk Page to be displaying odd behaviour; it could very well be an addendum to the reported dysfunction. --Maggymay 01:31, 29 December 2012 (PST)

A2S_INFO response from HLTV

Has anyone else noticed that some (perhaps all) HLTV proxies return two response packets to an A2S_INFO query? The first response is in the old GoldSrc format (with header 0x6D) and the second is in the Source format (with header byte 0x49). Anyone know why this happens? d_a_parker 13:05, 21 July 2015 (UTC)

UPDATE: I e-mailed Alfred and he confirmed that this is the expected behavior of an HLTV server. His recommendation was to simply ignore the first response (GoldSrc format) and use the second one (Source format). --d_a_parker 14:58, 14 August 2015 (UTC)

We ought to revise data type names.

This page and the whole wiki use data types which, I feel, are confusing to developers who are the target of this community. I'm interested in integer types. Let's leave floating points and strings out of it.

In my experience, data types typically have the following lengths.

  • byte 8
  • short 16
  • int 32
  • long 64

Whereas the wiki calls those lengths by these names

  • 8 byte
  • 16 short
  • 32 long
  • 64 long long

What I really have a problem with / do not understand is the naming of 32 and 64 bit types. The 32 bit name of long contradicts most languages. The 64 bit name of long long is frankly appalling. This type does not exist in any popular language to my knowledge, and this is so for good reason! First, data type names should not be two words. Compilers / interpreters spit variable type from name by splitting at space characters. Very many languages make it illegal to use spaces in programmer defined types.

The pseudo language of this wiki should be no different.

It's not like it would be an overhaul to change it either, just a large scale find and replace, surely. I would be willing to do that myself but obviously won't without the majority of mods/users approving.

On a slightly separate note, I am of the opinion that data types should be signed unless prefixed with a u like uint. Do comment on how realistic such a modification to the wiki pseudo language would be. If I've missed something and just made myself look stupid, please highlight that.

Replies

I concur that the 32-bit "long" and 64-bit "long long" do not make any sense. It would certainly make more sense if the 32-bit type was "int". Other than that, I think the data types are fine. They have been that way since I started referencing this document in the mid-2000's, so I think it's just been one of those things that people have seen, been slightly annoyed (or perplexed) by, but moved on because the actual protocol information is correct. In short, it doesn't stop you from understanding the protocols and parsing the packets, so people just left it alone. Also, please insert a signature after comments you post on this page so it is more clear who made the comment, and when. You can insert a signature using four tildes (~) as described here. Thanks. --d_a_parker 20:53, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

A2S_PLAYER challenge request changed

The Steam and TF2 server browsers seem to be sending FF FF FF FF 55 00 00 00 00 now for the challenge request instead of the previously used FF FF FF FF 55 FF FF FF FF. Can anyone else confirm this?
