RTCW Console Commands

HUD Commands
This class of commands affects different displays on the heads up display. Most can be changed in the game menus.

/toggle cg_drawcompass
Toggles the compass on or off.
/toggle cg_draw2d
Turns the entire Heads Up Display either on or off.
/toggle cg_drawfps
Either shows or hides your frame-per-second in the upper right-hand corner.
Changes your field of view. Higher values give you a "fishbowl" effect that some players like, as it gives them better periferal vision.
/toggle cg_drawtimer
Shows the amount of time left on the level. Not too useful, since there's a clock on the screen by default.
/toggle cg_gibs
Toggles whether or not gibs are drawn when someone is hit particularly hard.
/toggle cg_drawteamoverlay
Draws or hides the team overlay information that shows health and location of all your teammates.
Tries to reconnect to the last server you were connected to.
Kills you. Useful for quickly dying so you can respawn as a different class or with a different weapon.
Quits the game
Shows the current server's settings.
/toggle r_fullscreen
Will toggle between windowed and full screen mode. You must restart the game each time it's changed. NB Windows utility Atl + Enter can do this function without the need to restart the game.
Voice Chat Commands
These commands affect the chat and voice commands.
/toggle cg_novoicechats
Setting this to 0 will make it so that the quick chat messages (e.g., "Medic!" or "I need ammo") will not make any audible sounds. They will, however, still show up as text.
/toggle cg_novoicetext
Setting this to 0 will make it so the quick chat messages do not show their text messages (but you will still hear audio).
/toggle cg_teamchatsonly
Setting this to 0 will make it so that you only see chat messages from your team.
