It was removed in QWCL and has been re-introduced in this client, however it can only be used when the server is running with cheats enabled (for example "qwsv -cheats"), because it could be used as a cheat by making it easier to see players in dark corners when no fullbright skins are used.

Values

valuedescription
1Fullbrights the map (need -cheats or sv_cheats 1 enabled in server)
0Do not fullbright the map.

This variable can only be used when the server is running with cheats enabled (for example "mvdsv -cheats" or sv_cheats 1), because it could be used as a cheat by making it easier to see players in shadows.

Variable is float.

gl_clear 

Description

This variable will toggle the clearing of the screen between each frame. This can be helpful when specing a game and flying out of the map or during map development when the map maker must fly outside of the map to look has his map from the outside. Enabling this command will clear the areas which are not rendered outside of the map thus preventing the flickering effect when images repeat themselves repeatedly. However it causes problems when playing and going through the surfaces of a liquid (for example when diving into liquid), as you will see a red flash where the liquid texture would normally be repeated.

Support: Windows: OpenGL Windows: Software Linux: GLX Linux: X11 Linux: SVGA Mac OS X FreeBSD

gl_cull 

Description

This variable toggles the use of internal OpenGL functions for removing covered objects. When this variable is set to "1" the game will depend on the OpenGL driver to use it's culling functions to remove certain objects from the calculations because they are covered up and would not be seen anyways. It is a good idea to leave this toggle enabled because it will increase rendering performance.

r_netgraph 

Description

Setting r_netgraph 1 is a diagnostic tool to help you tweak your rate. If you find that you suffer from short pauses in the game and you see red spikes in your netgraph, you should try setting the rate down a bit. The height of the pink lines towards the bottom is your latency on received packets. Red lines are lost packets. (bad) Yellow lines are from the rate command kicking in, it's data that wasn't sent to you because you didn't have the bandwidth for it. (OK) Blue lines are very bad, they invalid delta's, and are related to the U_REMOVE warnings.

This variable determines the level of opacity for liquids, which requires the use of maps that were VISed with transparent water.

This is a very nice feature to have in the game, for more information refer to the "r_novis" command. You can use any value between "0" and "1" for "gl_turbalpha", here are some Examples:

r_novis 

Description

This variable toggles the use of VIS information from the map data. When this variable is set to "1" the game will calculate it's own VIS information on the fly instead of using the information stored in the map data, this will cause a severe performance penalty in the game. When "r_novis" is set to "1", the variable "gl_turbalpha" has a value lower than "1" and the server allows the client to display liquid transparently the player will be able to see through liquids. This is a nice effect to see but it is not recommended to keep this variable set to "1" because of the huge performance penalty. It is possible to enable transparent liquids and still keep this variable set to "0" (and thus not experience such a severe performance drop) by using maps that are VISed accordingly. You can visit the official Water VIS site at "http://www.sod.net/" and download the vispatch program along with the patch data files which you would use to update the VIS data for all of your game maps. There are also map packs available that contain VISed versions of the original ID maps.

Default: 3

Variable is float.

vid_nopageflip 

Description

This variable toggles the use of page-flipping during supported video modes. By default the game will allow for page-flipping for video modes that support this feature. For example if a given VESA mode can support page flipping, then it defaults to page-flipped operation. A VESA mode can be forced to non-page-flipped operation by setting the "vid_nopageflip" variable to "1", then setting the mode (note that "vid_nopageflip" takes operation on the next, not the current video mode, and note that it then stays in effect permanently, even when the client is exited and restarted, unless it is manually set back to "0"). If there is not enough memory for two pages in a VESA mode, or if the adapter doesn't support page flipping, then the mode will automatically be non-page-flipped. Page-flipping works by drawing multiple virtual game screens at the same time in the video memory and then switching among them to display the current gamescreen. Page-flipped modes thus use less system memory than non-page-flipped modes, but require more video memory. When using page-flipping, visual quality may be higher, but performance of the game can change to better or worse, depending on the graphics adapter and other hardware (see the discussion of the Pentium Pro below, for a discussion of why page flipping can be faster but is sometimes much slower on that processor). However in most cases the performance (and thus frame rate) will be increased, but for people with hardware that has problems with page-flipping "vid_nopageflip 1" may help. The Pentium Pro is an example for such a hardware: it is an okay client platform (sniff!), but it has one weak spot, it is by default very slow on writes to video memory. This means that in default hardware configurations, you are usually much better off setting "vid_nopageflip" to "1" if you use VESA modes, so drawing is done to system memory instead of to video memory. Remember that you must set the mode after setting "vid_nopageflip" to "1" in order to get "vid_nopageflip" to take effect. "vid_nopageflip 1" can sometimes be faster on a Pentium too, but not by nearly as much in general, and it's often slower.

Variable is float.

v_kickpitch 

Description

This variable controls the distance that the screen should move up or down when the player is shot. Most players set this variable to "0" in order to remove the screen tilting effect when they are injured by a shot. This allows them to keep a perfect aim while being fired upon.

Support: Windows: OpenGL Windows: Software Linux: GLX Linux: X11 Linux: SVGA Mac OS X FreeBSD

Default: 0

Variable is float.

v_kicktime must be >0 for this to take effect.

v_viewheight 

Description

New variable v_viewheight can be used to get the effect of negative/zero values of cl_bobcycle etc in qw 2.33 . Negative values of v_viewheight = lower viewheight, positive = higher. Can't go below -7 or above 4 because that's the range you can get with qw 2.33 by exploiting the bob cycle bug. Using v_viewheight automatically turns off weapon model bobbing (cl_bob*).

Support: Windows: OpenGL Windows: Software Linux: GLX Linux: X11 Linux: SVGA Mac OS X FreeBSD

Default: 0

Variable is float.
