    console too short :/

    Hi guys...
    Just realized that settings/addvanced/weapon config doesnt work online so i tried to use console instead... but console seems too short for my binds :/
    for exemple:
    bind mwheeldown "weapon 5;cg_fov 115;sensitivity 2;cg_drawcrosshair 2;cg_crosshairsize 32;cg_crosshaircolor 6"
    Obviously that cant fit inside console so i tried to type :
    bind mwheeldown "weapon 5;cg_fov 115;cg_drawcrosshair 2" then
    bind mwheeldown "weapon 5;sensitivity 2;cg_cg_crosshaircolor 6;cg_crosshairsize 32"
    But sensitivity crosshair color and crosshair size didnt work.... so is there any way to set all of that in console?

    If you really wanted to do it via console, it could be done via VSTR/aliases, but...

    Why not just use a .cfg file?

    Go to C:\Users\_username_\AppData\LocalLow\id Software\quakelive\home\baseq3\ (or equivalent directory on other OS), open autoexec.cfg with a text editor, and add these lines in there. The file will be automatically executed every time you join a game.

    Strange that your in-game menu doesn't work, but you can always manually edit your .cfg file in a text editor and then /exec filename.cfg in your console. In fact, this is really the best way to go about it. See Lorfa's cvar guide for specific details on how to go about this: http://www.regurge.at/ql/Lorfa/

    Here's an example of a complete config I'm using that I created using Lorfa's guide:


    Cheers, hope this helps.
