PostSubject: Useful JK2 Server Commands   Mon 27 Jan 2014, 7:36 am

I thought this might be a good idea - Collating all console commands for various benefits. Anyone can add and we'll hopefully make a nice list ^_^

For increased connection and FPS speed, lag free:

/rate, /snaps, /com_maxfps, /cl_maxpackets
also /cg_drawFPS 1 and /cg_lagometer 1 to display your FPS and what lag you have or so

Your settings depend on where you live...

/r_primatives 1 (NO IM KIDDING DONT DO IT lol) - Makes you see the background of the map and nothing else, and are unable to do anything (so be on a look out if someone tells you to put that command in..)

Speaking of which perhaps have a list of commands to avoid? Like that one ^

/cl_noprint 1 - Turns off chat. (This is useful if for example a lamer is insulting you or pm'ing you and there are no admins around. Note: You would still be able to talk to ppl, but you can't see what you type.)

/cl_yawspeed <speed> - When you press your arrow keys, you are able to spin faster. (this one is merely for fun. ^^)

/cg_shadows 1 - Enables you to have a shadow. (Adds more realism)

/scr_conspeed <speed> - Makes your console go on/off faster/slower

/cg_fov <distance> - Zooms your player in/out

/cg_crosshairSize <size> - Makes your crosshair smaller/bigger

/cg_fpls 1 - First person mode with lightsaber

/music <musicfile> - Plays a music file from your base folder. (If you play the song, the current map's music will be replaced by your song) (I have never tested to see if 2 ppl have the same song in their base and 1 player plays it, would it replace both player's music) (Note: By replace I mean only momentarily, once your song finishes it goes back to the map's music. (I might be wrong tho, even so if you /recon or disconnect and then start the game again it will be back to default)

Well that's all I got. ^^
Don't really have any other BAD commands to avoid. Though to be safe ignore all r_ commands.

Edit: For the /music command you need to make a folder named music, then type the command /music music/<songname>.mp3 Also, I was wrong the file can be .wav as well. When I tested a song that didn't work, I converted it to .wav and it did work. So hopefully this will help for those who get the Not Supported error.

Ye the commands what Vad added are good too, tho I am mostly forgetting on them, mostly cuz I didn't need them much so far

Vad, the /music musicfile, the musicfile needs to be in .pk3 or .mp3 format? I am always forgetting on that

I add also that default values for /rate is 4000, /snaps 20, /cl_maxpackets 30, /com_maxfps dunno but I thinks 125, this for the case you wanna restore the default settings if you feel its more comfy for you

Thus id like also if Vad adds default values mainly for yawspeed and fov,
Well.. shadows 1, this is not much useful (yes it needs more realism but..) cuz it may also drop your FPS and make you lag (but maybe I am wrong..)

Not sure if the shadows cause any fps drop or not. The music has to be .mp3.
As for the defaults, whenever you put any of those commands in, you get the current value and default value listed.

Edit: As my first post said, it doesn't have to be .mp3 it can be .wav as well. (not sure if any other formats, but probably not)

To improve the fps a little:
r_fastsky 1 -turns sky dark
cg_speedtrail 0
cg_sabertrail 0

Best settings with decent connection:
com_maxfps 125
cl_maxpackets 100
rate 100000
snaps 60

To set custom resolution:
r_mode -1
r_customwidth eg 1920
r_customheight eg 1080
and load changes of videosettings with vid_restart

and my absolute favourite:
cg_dynamiccrosshair 0 it disables the annoying movement of the crosshair

and of course scrolling in console with pagedown and pageup

with rate 100k and a decent connection u won't be affected by lagscripts with fast skin or sabercolor changes.

And those commands disable the trails of each. Just test it and you will see.

yes but what sanyo doesn't say here, is that it lags everyone else on server in a small way. 25k is the norm.

Cg_hudfiles 1 - Simpler hud, takes up less space and is easier to read

cg_forcemodel 1 - Changes all players' skin to the one you're using, saves a few fps.

cg_drawtimer 1 - Displays timer in top right corner of your screen, shows time elapsed on map.

cg_bobup - 0
cg_bobpitch - 0
cg_bobroll - 0
cg_runroll - 0
cg_runpitch - 0

(All disable screen "bobbing" when you move).

cl_mouseaccel (I use 0, but some people like mouse acceleration)

cg_drawteamoverlay - 1 (Tells you your teammates health and weapons etc in top right corner of screen, values 2 and 3 changes it's position)

cg_noprojectiletrail - 1 (Disables rocket smoke trails)

cg_marks - 0 (Disable splash projectile marks on walls)

++ Vader, Rach and Sanyo - Thanks for the contributions ^_^

I remember

/cg_thirdpersoncameradamp 0 (1 is default)

This keeps the camera still; good for making movies or observing skins from an all rounder perspective

In defence to players using skin change lag script, to avoid getting crashed...members should have this (or some similar values) in console:

Cl_maxpackets 100
Rate 25000
Snaps 60

I would like to add something to the cl_maxpackets - "CL_MAXPACKETS *** -With R_swapinterval 1

*** equals your FRAMES PER SECOND(monitors refresh rate), if you set this to ANY NUMBER lower than this, it will CUT YOUR MAXPACKETS IN HALF.
example: FPS =125 CL_MAXPACKETS =100 means your MAXPACKETS BECOME 63 (half your fps because 100 is NOT divisible by 125)

CL_MAXPACKETS *** -With R_swapinterval 0

*** equals your COM_MAXFPS, if you set this to ANY NUMBER lower than your com_maxfps, it will CUT YOUR MAXPACKETS IN HALF.
example: COM_MAXFPS =125 CL_MAXPACKETS =100 means your MAXPACKETS BECOME 63 (half your fps because 100 is NOT divisible by 125)"

if you type the command in the console with no value it will tell you what the default is
and that works on any command ^_^
