Servers support in-game commands. Only very old servers don't have them. These commands allow you to switch team without quiting or to change serveroptions without restarting the server. These commands are given in the same way as your textmessages, by pressing M.
Some commands are only available for operators.
You can become an operator if you know the password of the server.
The available commands are
This command displays all the available commands.
/help <command> will give help about the specified command
This command allows you to swap to another team.
Obviously this only works on a teamplay map.
This command manages your alliances. <command> can be any of the following
- invite <player>Invite a player to join your alliance.
- cancelCancel your invitation.
- refuse [player]Refuse all current invitations.
refuse player will just refuse the invitation from player.
- accept [player]Accept all current invitations.
accept player will just accept the invitation form player.
- leaveLeave the alliance. You are now their enemy again.
- listList all the players in your alliance.
This command displays the versionnumber of the server.
This command can lock the server so that nobody can enter the server anymore. This will allow private games.
You need to be operator for this though.
/lock 1 locks the server.
/lock 0 unlocks the server.
This command will make you operator, IF you know the password.
This command allows you to force someone to pause. This is useful to get rid of players who are not moving anymore. You need to be an operator for this.
This command resets the server, everone will be transported back to their base and a new round will begin.
/reset all will also reset all scores to 0. Operator status required.
You can also change mapoptions while the server is running, but not all of them. Some options just require you to restart the server. Again, you need to be operator for this.
This commands allows you to kick other players out. Obviously an operator-only command.
On 4.U.x servers this was still /show queue, but on modern servers it's now only /queue. This commands shows the players who are waiting to get in. You can get waiting players, when the server is out of bases.
When players are queued you can get them to be allowed in first. For example if /queue reports that players "Stupid" and "J-a-r-n-o" are queued, you can type /advance J-a-r-n-o to allow me to enter first when there is room again. Only operators can do this.
