Im expecting an official answer to this question. What is the max size for message of the day txt file? And is it relative to some CVAR's?

If it's too big then some of the clients get "reliable channel overflowed" error and get dumped from server.

Really? Well, then you need to ask your question here (http://support.steampowered.com/cgi-bin/steampowered.cfg/php/enduser/home.php). This is a peer help forum. No one is paid here.

Good luck with your official answer.

Here is my unofficial one; there is no hard coded limit for a maximum, and there is no CVAR even closely relating to it. The threshold where users get kicked with "reliable channel overflowed" varies from map to map, and server to server. I read somewhere that using more plugins increases the chance of it happening...but you don't care about what we say.

1KB

No. If it's too big, it will just cut off the MOTD after 1KB.
