    It could be a different key if you have a different keyboard. Try using whichever key it is that's actually under the Esc key for you.

    W = move forward
    S = move backwards
    A = step sideways to the left
    D = step sideways to the right

    Turning around (spinning on any direction) is done with the mouse.

    The ~ key is called "tilde" fyi.

    You should sue whoever sold you your keyboard. Does your computer run off a gerbil in a wheel inside?

    Quoting myself from the other thread:

    It's the button under Esc and to the left of the number 1. That's where ~ is on American keyboards apparently, but here in Europe it's ` . Press it at the same time as CTRL-ALT and you should get the console. Thereafter, just press the key to access it.

    I believe he should use
    /com_allowconsole 1
    to be able to do that.

    Indeed. However it worked for me after pressing ctrl-alt-thatkey once, and then I didn't have to do it again. At least that's how I remember it - it was four years ago.

    Or he could just enable the console through the in-game menu.

    If you disable console, you can still open it with ctrl+alt+~. if enabled you just have to hit the ~.

    On a sidenote, the label of the tilde key depends on the layout of your keyboard. amazing how some people seem to believe the whole world uses same key layout... German keyboards have the ^ sign on there for example. It's like mike said... The key left to 1, under ESC, above TAB (usually).
