Wile this is familiar territory to long term Fans id Software engine games, some may not know about Quake script and bindsl so here's some handy binds that you can place in your autoexec.cfg to give you fast access to some ET/id Software engine goo-gaws:

bind "c" toggle cg_drawcompass
bind "f" toggle cg_drawfps
bind "l" toggle cg_lagometer
bind "r" toggle cg_drawRoundTimer

· cg_drawcompass toggles the compass on/off with your "c" key
· cg_drawfps toggles the frame rate display with your "f" key
· cg_lagometer toggles the Net Graph display on/off with your "l"
· cg_drawRoundTimer toggles the round timer on/off with your "r" key

If you don't have an autoexec.cfg file you can make one with Windows Notepad; just paste the above text in Notepad, edit the keys you want to bind, and save the file in your tctest directory as "autoexec.cfg".

The autoexec.cfg is also the best place to keep binds for the various voice commands like:

bind "]" "vsay_team Affirmative"
bind "[" "vsay_team Negative"
bind "s" "vsay_team Sorry" 
bind "g" "vsay_team LetsGo"
bind "a" "vsay_team AllClear"
bind "b" "vsay_team NeedBackup"
bind "x" "vsay_team FTCoverMe"
bind "m" "vsay_team FollowMe"
bind "d" "vsay_team DefendObjective"
bind "w" "vsay_team EnemyWeak"
bind "i" "vsay_team Incoming"

And game tweaks you may want to change like seta r_mode "8" unsafe, to force a resolution or seta r_displayrefresh "75" to force a refresh rate.

Thanks wasnt sure on the fps command.... sometimes it appears to stutter at various points or depending on the action and was curious to see the fps.

Stutter may not be your frame rate in an id Software engine game, toggle the netgraph and see what you have going on there, ideally you should see flat traces...

I'll check into that, maybe it is the net connection!

Here's a nice little summery guide to reading the id Software Engine Net-Graph, sometimes called the "Lag-O-Meter"...

Awesome that was a good read, tonight no slow downs but didnt notice any lag on the meter either. So probably was the connection those days!
