    You are making a common mistake. The superadmin is not a group but an attribute at the setup of the server. To become superadmin, join the game and type /auth [authcode]

    From Wiki
    I would suggest you might want to look at the documentation and other posts. This is one of the common questions asked.

    Try doing the commands from console.
    /user group "name in quotes if it's multiple words" superadmin

    Anything you needed to know about how to set up your server is detailed in the wiki under the complete guide.
    This link: https://tshock.atlassian.net/wiki/display/TSHOCKPLUGINS/Setting+Up+Your+Server is what you need to do. If you have any difficulties, you did not follow the steps as listed and explained.

    As follows the steps, in order, must be:
    1. Join server
    2. Use command: /auth <authcode>
      • authcode can be found in console
    3. Use command: /user add <username> <password> superadmin
    4. Use command: /login <username> <password>
    5. Use command: /auth-verify

    To designate another player as a superadmin, this link will detail what you need to know: https://tshock.atlassian.net/wiki/display/TSHOCKPLUGINS/Basic+User+Management.

    The steps to create another superadmin player (account) are as follows:
    • If the player has registered an account already
      • /user group <username> superadmin
    • If the player does not have an account already
      • /user add <username> <password> superadmin
    • Have other player login with command: /login <username> <password>
    These steps should give you what it seems you want.

    Don't use the auth command to grant superadmin rights to someone.. What the /auth-verify command does is to set your account temporarily to superadmin so that you can configure other accounts from in-game. You need to use the command /user group playername superadmin to change their group permanently to superadmin.

    I wonder sometimes if the /auth-verify superadmin concept needs to be overhauled. It just seems to be the most confused concept for new users that are in recent posts.

    Exactly what are you doing? superadmin is not really a group. See above:

    I'm also having difficulty with setting user permissions. I read all the section in the wiki which tell you the /"codes" to enter which allow you to do certain tasks, but i don't see any mention of how to add specific users these permissions or the syntax for doing so is very cryptic. I've attempted to add my friends account to the superadmin group as follows /user username group superadmin and it reports that he is added, but he is not able to perform any additional admin functions.

    He continues to be blocked from teleporting, using RoD, spawning mobs/boss/items, using wormhole potions, and he occasionally hits the projectile cap even I have never done so with the same loadout.. Also, after authenticating, is it normal to have to manually login each time?

    There should be a simpler way to give users permission imho, why not have a command for the superadmin to disable all restrictions?

    Superadmin should exist:
    console.jpg
    Use /group list to see your internal configured groups.

    I can't admin myself. I have tried the /user add *name *password superadmin and /user group *name superadmin. Neither worked and I am super pissed.

    Did you have any errors? Do you have logs? Exactly what steps are you taking, and where does it not work?
