Exec Functions

Last updated by Michiel Hendriks, major v3323 update. Previously updated by Chris Linder (DemiurgeStudios?). Original author was Martin Actor (UdnStaff).


Exec functions are very similar to ConsoleCommands. You can use then by bringing up the console window by typing `~' or the console line by typing `TAB' and simply typing the command. You can also edit your User.ini file and create an Alias for the command and then map the alias to a key. Exec commands are different from ConsoleCommands because they are created in script and are therefore easy to add and remove.

Game Administration

The following commands allow you to administer the current game. Most commands require you to log in as administrator. Some commands require the logged in user to have certain privileges. In the single admin system the admin has all privileges.

  • Admin command - executes an admin command on a server where you are logged in as administrator.
  • AdminGUI - stub
