Admin recently changed in the game, it was originally whoever was the first connection, but now it requires a password. To setup admin in Hide & Hold Out, simply follow the steps listed below: Open config.cfg in a text editor such as Notepad, Notepad++, or similar. Change the "admin_password" option to something you can remember. Save the config.cfg file, and restart or start the server let it finish loading. Once the server is started, connect to it and open your in-game console with F9. Type: admin PASSWORD and then press the Enter key, where PASSWORD is the password you set. You should receive a confirmation message that you were granted/logged in as admin, and done!
