Make sure you have the following before proceeding with the installation

  • A server to host the relay medium on (MySQL required)
  • Source game server with the socket extension
  • A Discord bot token (https://discordapp.com/developers/applications/)

    Please note that client ID and bot token is not the same thing


Download the latest release from releases for either linux/windows

Note: If you need additional OS/Architectural support, you may build the server binary yourself


  • Upload the binary file (server[.exe]) to the server
  • Upload the plugin to the Sourcemod plugins folder and load the plugin by either restart, change map, and/or via sm plugins load Source-Chat-Relay


  • Configure the config.toml.example on the relay server and rename it to config.toml
  • Configure cfg/sourcemod/Source-Chat-Relay.cfg on the game server

Inviting the bot

Copy, replace CLIENT_ID with the client ID on your Discord bot application and navigate to it in your browser.



This is the part that everyone gets confused on, so please follow it carefully.

How the system works (Prelude)

Before actually connecting everything, you should familarize yourself with how the system actually works.

The concept is similar to TV channels, you can broadcast on a channel and you can view/receive on a channel, with the only difference is that you can may view/receive on multiple channels at once.

Entities are bidirectional (both direction send/receive), meaning they are both capable of broadcasting and view/receiving.


If all goes well and the game server successfully connects to the relay server, you should see an entity from each game server when you run r/entities as a command to the Discord bot (If you don't, see Troubleshooting

You may now began linking things, copy the entity ID of the game server and use r/receivechannel and r/sendchannel to configure the receive and send properties

Note that you cannot use these commands within private message, it must be used within a server Note that you need to have Link Preview enabled within your Discord to view the command outputs correctly


  • r/receivechannel !@#$%^klmwxyz01bc2345nopqr 1
  • r/sendchannel !@#$%^klmwxyz01bc2345nopqr 1

Similarily, you can do the same for Discord text channel


  • r/receivechannel #general 1
  • r/sendchannel #general 1

Just like, two entities are configured to both send and receive on channel 1
