For administering your spawned server, you usually need to go to the console for typing commands. This menu lists the most useful commands and you only need to reserve 3 binds to control it.
It is also useful for standard user as it also lists shuffle and teamsize votes for fast access.
download the attached scmenu.cfg (Attachment: scmenu.zip) file and put it in your quakelive\home\baseq3 directory. Then add the following line to your autoexec.cfg - you can also type this in your console for a quick test before altering your auoexec.cfg
If you don't know what I'm talking about, check this:
By default the menu is using left and right arrow for previous and next option and down arrow to select the current option, but this can be easily configured at the top of the file:
bind LEFTARROW "vstr sm_prev"
bind RIGHTARROW "vstr sm_next"
bind DOWNARROW "vstr sm_action"
- TSize (=Teamsize)
- PList (/players command - see below)
- PAction (=PlayerAction - see below)
- Lock (teams)
- Unlock (teams)
- Abort (Game)
For the PList command you unfortunately may need to switch to the console to see the complete output if holding the chat history key doesn't help because you have more than 6 players on the server.
PAction allows to perform the following actions after selecting the player number: kickban, move into team red/blue/spectator, op, deop.
After selecting an action from a submenu like TeamSize or PlayerAction, you usually land in the main menu again, but there's a shortcut to perform fast actions on multiiple players like moving them in other teams: After you just performed an action on a player, you can press the action key (default: down arrow) to get to the player selection submenu directly and select another player and then an action.
I hope you find this useful. Feedback is appreciated.
