Well, Iīve found out its possible to bind a different key than the "^" to toggle the console on/off. well, nice but.. "^" STILL activates the console =D
is there a way to unbind the "^" ?
and no.. it didnīt work putting "unbind ^" into my cfg
also when I disabled console... because my other key (F9) doesnīt work then, too.
I wanna do this because Iīve a german setted keyboard. So I can not use the ^ in console for doing color**** for example...
you could use /com_allowconsole "0" which would mean you need ctrl+shift+^ making it pretty unlikely that you'd hit it by mistake
i think ctrl+alt+tilde (tilde is the key under esc, so the key left to the 1) always brings down the console on any given keyboard layout, even if com_allowconsole is 0.
Also, if you don't want to reset your entire cfg, just open the cfg file in a text editor, and change the "bind" to "unbind" in the desired line.
oops, ofc I meant ctrl+alt, not ctrl+shift - and yeah I assumed that his ^ symbol is where the tilde is on qwerty keyboards
It's probably tilde but he doesn't know how to write it
either way, com_allowconsole 0 wins
He has a german keyboard layout though, which I guess looks like this:
I believe in this case QL binds it to the ^ key, so with com_allowconsole 1 he has a problem typing the '^' character.
It would be nice if he could still have the convenience of com_allowconsole 1 and just bind the console to a different key. Unfortunately I don't think you can 'unbind' that corner key in QL.
That bind is indeed hard-coded into the engine. The toggleconsole command is just legacy from Q2... which let you change the bind.
This won't work because default configs get synchronized every time QL starts. Just create separate *.cfg file and exec it during the game.

I have three PCs, I don't use autoexec.bat, and I always have to manually move all the changes I make on any of the PCs to the other ones.

But you are right in this case, because the tilde will get synced indeed.

thats exact what I mean ^^
Iīd bind the "toggleconsole" to F9 manually in my cfg.
Ye, but tilde or what this key is called on US-kb is still active, so...
guess, Iīve to try this com_allowconsole thig x)
other option would be to set kb to EN? xD
