Staring Money mp_startmoney x This integer value controls the amount that players start with at the beginning of a new map or when they join a server. 800 is the default and the minimum value, while 16000 is the maximum.
Deatailed Log mp_logdetail x Use this bitwise svar to control the depth of your logs. Be warned, these options can eat away hard drive space and CPU cycles. Use 0, the default, to log no attacks, 1 to log enemy attacks, 2 to log teammate attacks, and 3 to log both.
Player ID mp_playerid x This variable controls what players see when they put their crosshair over an enemy, a hostage, or a teammate. At 0 (the default), the player see's all popups with team colors. At 1, the player sees their teammates and hostages, with team colors. At 2, players see no popups.
Fading mp_fadetoblack x This is also to combat ghosting, but is more harsh. 0 will have no affect on the game, while 1 will disable chasecam and any sort of death cam at all. The client's screen fades to black instantly after death. One boon of this setting is that corpses stay around for the entire round. Useful for clan matches.

Win Limit mp_winlimit x This, of course, is an integer (whole
number). When a team reaches this amount of wins (before the timelimit or the
roundlimit is reached), it has won the map. 0, or disabled, is the default.
Spectators allow_spectators x Setting to 1 will allow spectators, while 0 will
disallow them. These are non-playing spectators, not dead people.

Hostage Kill Kicking mp_hostagepenalty x This variable is defaulted to 0, or
disabled. Sets the number of hostages a player can kill before they are booted from the server.
Number of more players on team can have over another mp_limitteams x This variable is defaulted to 2. Sets the maximum number of players that one team can have more than the other team - Use a setting of '0' to completely disable the team limiting.

Toggles logging of chat messages in the log files - Setting of 1 = 'on', and 0 =
