Console Commands

From Zandronum Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Commands is very useful to control the game settings and available settings. Every setting can be controlled by either commands or Console_Variables, this allows users and server administrators greater flexibility of control. Additionally, commands can be entered via console from either the server console, RCon utility, or the clients individually. Clients can enter commands by using the console by pressing the (~) key (US English Keyboards); Furthermore, clients can also control the servers via RCon control, but the clients must have the correct RCon password in order to use this permission.
