Console Commands

 

To bring up the console, press the Tilde (~) or TAB keys. The following are basic commands you can use in the console. Type the command and press return:

 

Stat fps - Displays your frames per second (fps) in the top corner. Cur is your current fps, while Ave is your overall average fps. Type the same command to turn it off.

 

Stat net - Displays your ping and packet information. Type the same command to turn it off.

 

Netspeed [rate] - Sets your network rate in bytes/sec (See ConfiguredInternetSpeed description above) while you're on a server. First join a server and open the console. Then use the Stat Net command to show you current ping and network rate. Next try various netspeed values to see which gives you the lowest ping.

 

Showhud - Toggles the HUD (Heads Up Display - all the overlays on the main screen) off and on.

 

Open xxx.xx.xx.x:xxxx - Connects directly to a server with the specified IP and port number.

 

Reconnect - Reconnects you to the last connected server.

 

Votekick [playername] - Votes to kick a particular player from the server.

 

Exec [filename] - Executes the commands in the file with the specified name.

 

Set Input [key] [command] - Will bind commands to particular keys. E.g. Set Input N ThrowWeapon will make using N (key) throw your weapon (command).

 

You can close the console again by pressing ~ or TAB.
