Summary0003837: Create Game can configure an RCon password for an SRB2 server, but the plugin does not support RCon
DescriptionThe "RCon password" (remote console password) textfield is useless in Create Game dialog for SRB2. This confused me. There is no RCon support in SRB2, regardless of the ability to input an RCon password there.
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Start Doomseeker with Sonic Robo Blast 2 plugin version 14 installed and working. (This is the typical setup for Doomseeker 1.3.1 bundle out of the box.)
  2. Navigate to File → Create Game (Ctrl + S).
  3. In Create Game top menu bar, make sure the "Mode" is set to "Host server". (Ctrl + M, H)
  4. Make sure "Game" dropdown is set to Sonic Robo Blast 2.
  5. Navigate to the Server tab. Notice there is an RCon password text field.

Then, attempt to use doomseeker --rcon. The GUI doesn't display SRB2 as a supported source port. Likewise, the full command (below) reports the plugin does not support RCon.
$ doomseeker --rcon SonicRoboBlast2 localhost

Not to mention that top margin is quite awful and only experienced with the SRB2 plugin, but getting rid of this RCon password textfield might resolve that issue anyway.

By the way, there is no RCon option flag to pass to SRB2 command line either. So the text-field is also a no-op for the "command line" button.
