How do i quote someones name in chat? I seen user doingt hat quite fast. How do you do that?

Try pressing the first letter of their name and then press TAB. Supposedly it will complete the rest. However, if they use non-alphabetic characters, symbols, then you can't type it, and thus no completion is available.

Thank you, that worked Smile

I know that since 0.8.2 release Scoreboard is the HUD panel. Also there are translation strings presented for this panel on Transifex. How can I see this panel in the HUD editor?

update: Mihalych127 from discord said there is no way.

hi, i'm new to the game and i have some config questions:

1. is it possible to make ALL enemymodels red in ALL game modes? i'm used to having that in QL and i keep shooting my teammates when i'm in blue team O_o
2. is it possible to force all enemy models to be a certain model and all teammates another one? because right now, if i hear someone coming, i cant differentiate if its a friend or foe
3. can i disable the "I'M ON YOUR TEAM!" sound?

thanks in advance! really nice game you've got there.

In the console (open with the ~ key) type "apropos forcemodel" and "apropos autotaunt". I forgot the exact cvar names but they should be something among those lines, these commands should list them.

hey there, thanks for your quick reply.

i only found cl_forceplayermodels, but that doesn't help anyhow because it makes mine and the enemy's models the same :/

cl_autotaunt is already set to "0".

it should be cl_forceplayercolors 1. Keep in mind it will have the same color as you set for yourself then. In general check out the Halogene Noob Guide. https://www.xonotic.org/guide/#visuals

thanks a bunch dude! Smile

hey i've got another question:
i've been tinkerin on my cfg the last days and when i started the game today, i noticed that my crosshair/screen bobs up and down (like a recoil effect) when shooting with any weapon. it seems to me that this hasn't been the case yesterday!? when i type "apropos bob", all bob-related commands are set to 0.

or has it been like this all the time and i didn't realize it?

then again, i'm quite sure that until yesterday the crosshair and the screen didn't move when shooting..

The recoil effect when shooting is a server-side setting that can't be turned off on the client. If you own the server or wish to test locally, the setting to switch it off is g_norecoil 1

What is the impact of a good rig on possible player performance? I have the same ping as Testing (30-50), but  my FPS are capped at 60Hz and I'm playing on lowest settings without textures on a Intel HD4400 w/ i5-4210U, so I'm often getting FPS of 20-40 or lower depending on player count even with minimal particles/effects (without it really looks like shit).
So I'm an average player towards the upper middle I assume; I still get my ass kicked by Jeff & Julius & Jay & Testing on the regular but perform fairly with small player counts (= less effects, less projectiles and such). On the other hand there are players like Gandalf with ping 90 or so but FPS stabiliy in the 100-200 range who also kick my ass seemingly easier than it should be. In particular I don't often seem to have the time to react even if pings are about equal.

Am I just plateauing at a mediocre skill level or generally handicapped  (Xonotic is literally the only game besides tome4 which I've been playing during the last 10 years, go figure) or does decent hardware make the game really so much more easier to play than my lame ass Thinkpad which kicks me down to any FPS between 10 and 60? (60 FPS = don't move on map or stare into the black void).

Hi, I have some more noob questions:

1. Is it possible to disable the map background picture so that the background is just black (like in evilspace_nex for example)?
2. Is it possible to reduce the base of the game? My headphones are very bass heavy..
3. Why is there a "seta" in front of some commands in the config?
4. I have created my own config file called "mine.cfg". Now I've learned the following things:
  • When I exec mine.cfg and then quit the game, all the stuff from mine.cfg gets stored into config.cfg
  • When the game is started, config.cfg is loaded
  • When the server changes the map, config.cfg is loaded
My problem: In mine.cfg I have changed the scoreboard setting to include ELO and other stuff. BUT somehow this is the only setting, that will not get saved into config.cfg. This means that EVERY TIME I start the game or the server changes the map, I have to re-exec mine.cfg, to get my panel settings. How can I solve this problem? I already deleted config.cfg and just renamed mine.cfg to config.cfg but it did not work either.

To answer the ones I know: I don't know if disabling the menu background is possible with a cvar, but try different menu skins in the settings and see if one of them does that. seta usually refers to a setting that's persisted in the config, while set typically implies you only set it for that session, though if it's only for one map / game you'll want to use settemp instead. If you want a variable change to execute each startup, create a file called autoexec.cfg and add set / seta lines there (eg: "set g_something 1").

Hey, thanks for the reply.

This is my string:
scoreboard_columns_set ping pl elo name | -teams,race,lms/kills +ft,tdm/kills -teams,lms/deaths +ft,tdm/deaths -teams,lms,race,ka,dm,tdm/suicides +ft/suicides +dm,tdm,ca,kh,lms/damage +dm,tdm,ca,kh,lms/dmgtaken -race,dm,tdm,ka,ft/frags +ctf/caps +ctf/pickups +ctf/fckills +ctf/returns +lms/lives +lms/rank +kh/caps +kh/pushes +kh/destroyed +race/laps ?+race/time ?+race/fastest +as/objectives +nexball/faults +nexball/goals +ka/pickups +ka/bckills +ka/bctime +ft/revivals -lms,race,nexball/score

I have put it in an autoexec.cfg, I have put it there with "seta" in front, I have put it in my own cfg with seta in front, I have entered just "exec mine.cfg" into the autoexec.cfg but nothing works. Each and every time I start the game the scoreboard gets reset to default.

I guess I just bind it to my join game button. Like "bind Enter team_auto; exec mine.cfg".

Code:
alias scoreboard "scoreboard_columns_set ping pl elo name | -teams,race,lms/kills +ft,tdm/kills -teams,lms/deaths +ft,tdm/deaths -teams,lms,race,ka,dm,tdm/suicides +ft/suicides +dm,tdm,ca,kh,lms/damage +dm,tdm,ca,kh,lms/dmgtaken -race,dm,tdm,ka,ft/frags +ctf/caps +ctf/pickups +ctf/fckills +ctf/returns +lms/lives +lms/rank +kh/caps +kh/pushes +kh/destroyed +race/laps ?+race/time ?+race/fastest +as/objectives +nexball/faults +nexball/goals +ka/pickups +ka/bckills +ka/bctime +ft/revivals -lms,race,nexball/score"

alias cl_hook_gamestart_all "scoreboard"

This is how I do it (in autoexec.cfg). Sometimes it won't load it when watching demos but entering "scoreboard" (or whatever alias name you choose) in console will always load it up.

Quoting the first part of the help message printed by scoreboard_columns_help (git/autobuild version):
Code:
You can modify the scoreboard using the scoreboard_columns_set command.
Usage:
scoreboard_columns_set default
scoreboard_columns_set field1 field2 ...
scoreboard_columns_set without arguments reads the arguments from the cvar scoreboard_columns
  Note: scoreboard_columns_set without arguments is executed on every map start
scoreboard_columns_set expand_default loads default layout and expands it into the cvar scoreboard_columns so you can edit it
...

So if you save your settings to scoreboard_columns they are automatically applied every time, without executing scoreboard_columns_set in the cl_hook_gamestart_all hook.

@Mirio doing so will probably fixes your problem with demos.

That sounds interesting, but when I try using scoreboard_columns it says "unknown command"!?

Try again, scoreboard_columns should exist, maybe you misspelled it.

Also, handy to know if you write "apropos searchword" into console without quote marks, the console will list all variables that has your search word in the command line or description. If you know what you're looking for, you can find almost anything with this.

How do I know if I have been banned from a server and why? This happened to me a couple of times that, when I was winning, the game kicks me out and I cannot get back in.
I can see the server information and who is in.
Server ip is 5.199.143.200:26000

I enter "scoreboard" and press tab, then it says "3 possible aliases" under which there is no scoreboard_columns. Just scoreboard_columns_set

Thank you! I was indeed looking with the apropos command, but I was looking with "background" and other stuff, not "sky".. Smile

And above those 2 aliases you should see a list of 25 cvars starting with scoreboard. Which Xonotic version are you running? Are you on a particular server?
