    • Hiya! I didn't really update anything... I just added this to the news section to show you people I'm not dead :) Right now I'm tediously working to seperate the cvars from the commands... ALong with the other 1,000,000 things I have to do. Well, Stay Tuned, Fraggers!

    • Heyaz people! My name is Mike Welsh, aka Deconstructor... As you may know Turmoil didn't want to maintain this page anymore, so he has let me maintain it now =) He has asked me to keep the name of the page "Turmoil's Quake2 Console Commands", which I am. Anywayz, about me: My Quake2 name is Deconstructr]3[, and I usually hang around with my fellow Clan Triad members at rudd.spiked3.com. Anywayz, I'm no Frag God or anything, I bet half of you budding Quake2 players out there can kick my behind into that magical place called kingdom come, but don't underestimate me just cuz I'm 12 years old =D Anywayz, you can drop me a note at penfan@telerama.com or catch me on irc.quake2.com with the nick Decon]3[. This site will be going through so renovations and additions, so stay tuned =D w00p!

    • Time to be honest with the world. I will no longer be updating the page. To be quite honest, I really don't play quake 2 at all. I was excited at first, but it takes more than improved graphics to keep me playing (and who cares about console commands for a game they don't even play?). I'd like to apologize to quake2.com for offering them what turned out to be a waste of their time. If anyone would like to takeover maintainance of the command list, please email me.

    • Merry Christmas to all. I got a new hard drive for Christmas, unfortunately the old one had to die for that to happen. To make a long story short, my 4-month-old 950 dollar Seagate Cheetah decided to kick the bucket, and I am now in the process of reacquiring all my data. Needless to say, updates to the page will be sparce until I get everything squared away.

    • Saw on Blue's that John Cash has revealed the "cmdlist" and "cvarlist" commands. Now you all know how I had my page up the same day Q2Test was released :)
    • After reading some email from a few of you, I have decided to reorganize the console list into sections. Possible sections are: GL commands, Server commands, and Client commands. Please mail me with suggestions.
    • Also, even though there is a link at the bottom of this frame, a lot of you STILL cannot find my email address. Please mail me at turmoil@quake2.com.
    • I have just finished compiling a list of commands added or removed sice Q2Test. As soon as I make these changes, the command database will be relevant to Quake 2 and not the test.
    • Removed a bunch of old news.
  • Wednesday, December 10th, 7:30am
    • Updated the "give" command.
    • Added the "wave" command.
  • Sunday, December 7th, 4:20pm
    • Just wanted to point out that Quake 2 resets your FOV setting after each map change, and also whevever you die in deathmatch. BOO! HISS! Bad id. What the heck good is the FOV setting if it gets reset all the damn time?
  • Sunday, December 7th, 4:00pm
    • Thanks to some friends in Denmark, I can now offer you the following updates:
    • Updated "crosshair."
    • Added "cl_stereo_separation."
    • Added "cl_run."
    • Replaced "r_lefthand" (from Q2test) with "hand."
    • Stay tuned kiddies! More to come.
  • Sunday, December 7th, 2:00pm
    • Get ready. Massive, and I mean massive, site update coming. WHOOP!
  • Monday, December 1st, 9:30pm
    • HARDCORE DEATHMATCHERS REJOICE! Thanks to the new Quake II Online Manual that id has put up, it has become apparent that items like Quad and Pent can still be instant powerups in multiplayer Q2. Gone are the worries of an entire team turning quad and regaining the level. Whoop!
