    Console Commands

    Wasn't there a handy list of Console Commands that someone posted on this forum?

    I've been searching but not found it ... finally got a printer!

    Re: Console Commands

    I tried that, but the list overflowed the console window....and apparently also overflowed the console window's buffer as I couldn't scroll to the top of the "help commands" command's output. Anyone know how to pipe a console command's output -- to a file perhaps?

    I've also seen the console truncate it's own tail, so to speak. See

    Re: Console Commands

    Just curious, have you tried CTRL + A to select all, then CTRL + C to copy, open notepad then CTRL + V to paste the console contents into notepad?

    Re: Console Commands

    I had tried that too, actually. I guess the fact that the console's buffer overflows means that not only can the humans not see what's at the top of "help commands" output but neither can Windows.

    Thanks for the listing, Brian!

    Re: Console Commands

    Go to Console fast menu and select "Open log file". Select where you want your logfile stored. In the commandline type "help commands" and when the scrolling is over go to fast menu and select "Close log file" and bingo you have a copy of all console commands (nearly). There is a good document by Paul Samsons describing some of the most used commands . It can be found here.
