hold down Ctrl, Alt, and the key to the left of 1 (the console button for hl/cs)

Once you're in the console type 'com_allowConsole 1' so you can access the console via the ~ button instead of having to hold down ctrl and alt too.

sticked. I was gonna sticky it anyway but forgot, cheers for the reminder.

To get the commands in the console I just type the first letter then hit TAB to get a list of them, then scroll button up or down or page up or down to go through them all. Some interesting commands, though don't mess much with the render one, i broke it briefly messing with that ;)

I found this lastnight, useful for the monster spawns etc, although the cacodemon spawn doesnt work and they missed cherub off the list.

They also explain how to find that secret place that I found, to get that ID pda. Seems like there aren't any other major secrets if this is the only one that is being listed everywhere.

timescale

It changes the time, default is 1 , if you put it below, like 0.5 or 0.25 you get slow-motion, put it above and it'll go faster. :)

How do you access console? Should put that on the top of the post.
Ctrl+Alt+~ right?

This isn't a console command but is a cool feature in the Doom config file in the base folder.

seta g_showPlayerShadow "1"

It makes it so you can see a shadow of yourself everywhere you go. I don't know if it is default on some people's machines, but it was disabled on mine.

no fps hit when i used it, i use the model shadow mod aswell giving shadows to all the characters, self shadowing. It all looks amazing.

Though with the player shadow be careful, cause you really will "be spooked by your own shadow" in parts :D

Yep. I concur with this, I'm running both the playershadow console command and the self-shadowing mod.. I notice no performance hit with or without these.

that is so true! :eek:
i was playing MP earlier today and for me that shadow was enabled by default and sheeesh!

my own shadow was creeping me out.. :LOL:

just wondering...is MP hella laggy for anyone? at first for me it was laggy as hell!! :x
but it did improve once i found a better server... but still.. averaging around 130-150 ping :(

hmm.. oh well.. guess that will improve over time or something with better dedicated servers and such.

It lets models cast shadows on themselves.

In the example shot... his shoulder/armor casts a shadow on his arm, his eyebrows cast shadows over his eyes/nose, and his head casts a shadow across his chest:

Sweet, I found the Ultra Extreme Quality mod (which has the self shadowing thing). Awesome.

Thanks OCyberManO, though I actually meant to say "where can i find the ultra extreme quality mod".

Woa!...that's way too much to read. Can someone just post the FPS checking console command for me - I didn't use it throughout the whole game, but I'd like to know it anyway.

Nope, it's in the list I posted:

True, but it's pretty hard to find on such a huge list. It was pure luck that I found it somewhere in the first place. But the list you posted is the most complete I've seen so far, it's very useful.

Anyway, I was kind of disappointed that enemies don't seem to take damage when you smack the with a box, but it's still fun.
