The console is like a MS-DOS window that allow us to do commands, or write, or see some things about the game which are not usually appearing in the game screen.
We can open it with the key at left side of "1" key. Under "Esc" key, and above the Tab key. From now on, i will define it as "CK" (Console Key)
There exist 3 ways to open the Console:
To open it in normal size: Just press the CK (Console Key).
To open it in Full Screen: Ctrl+CK (Control key + Console Key).
To open it in small size: Alt+CK ("Alt" key + Console Key).
To close the Console, just press the CK again.
When u open the Console, u can scroll up/down with the wheel of your mouse. This is useful if u wanna check something happened in the game, like the things written by the players, or the events (kills, deaths, teamkills, dynos planted or commands posts constructed info, etc...)
If your mouse doesn't have wheel, don't worry... u just can press the "Page up" or "Page Down" (at right side of "Start" and "End" keys. Just above the direction arrows).
Sometimes it happens that u open the console and u only see this:
No problem, just press Ctrl+End, and it will scroll to the End of the Console text.
Notice that the Console space for keep the text and events is limited. I mean that when new text is showed... the text at the top of the console, will disappear. So if u wanna check something, don't do it too late. Hehehe...
You can use the Console to call commands. And to write PMs (Private Messages) too.
Whatever u write in the Console it keeps it in the memory, so u can call again the last text u wrote, only pressing the UP ARROW in ur keyboard, and then press "Enter" to send it again. Each time u press UP ARROW, it will show the last message or command typed, the one before the last one, the one before the one before the last one, and so on....
Notice that the memory for that, is limited too.
U can type !help, so u can see the commands you're allowed to use during the game. Example: !admintest (This will show, your admin level in the server you're connected to)
If you have the WHALECIENT installed (you can get it in our "Downloads" section), you can also call the !pizza, !beer, !coffee, and !cookie commands.
At the time to write and apply game commands, we can write the 1st part of the command, and then press the "Tab" key for a list of available commands for that combination.
So, this way we have...
If you write '/cg_po' and then u press the "Tab" key, the available commands starting with 'cg_po" will appear in the list, so u can choose the desired one.
We don't have to write the whole command, for example '/cg_AtmosphericEffects'
Just type 'cg_Atmos' and press the "Tab" key.
