In game commands

4 posts in this topic

There's a number of commands you can use in game through the chat bar. They are usually known as dot commands because of the period in front of most of them. Some of the basic ones that are good to know:

.m playername This command lets you send a private message to any player on your side. For example, .m stu hello would send a message only I can see that says hello.

.r This is the command to reply to whoever sent you your last private message. When you use this you don't have to use their name. For example, .r hello would send a message saying hello to whoever last sent you a private message.

.own If you click on a forward base or bridge on your map (the text for it should turn green) and type .own it should show you how much damage that facility has taken. For example, if I click on the Weert-Roermond Forward Base and then type .own into my chat bar, it will tell me state of the FB.

$here This command is used to include ownership of a capture point in a message. For example, if you go into a control point and type on the target channel Killed ei $here resetting it will read like killed ei Hasselt City (37%) resetting to everyone on target channel.

$miss This command works like the above where you can slip it into a message. This one will include your mission so others can find it. For example, if you use the target channel and type Join $miss to attack North CP it should appear like Join 2nd infantry division/4th infantry brigade/stu to attack North CP

.report This tool lets you send a message to the game managers. This is not a command to use frivolously. But it can be used if you suspect someone is cheating, there is some sort of bug in game, etc. It's often best to verify with another player before making the report. If you think there's an invisible player (a rare bug that does sometimes turn up) capturing a control point thoroughly check the building and then ask another player to check it too. It's possible the error could be on your side. If you use it it should look like this for example, .report unable to capture Namur-Andenne CP. This will send a message to the Game Managers that there might be a bug in the Namur-Andenne CP that's not allowing it to be captured. Do not expect replies to these messages.

There are a number of other commands that can be used in chat but these basic ones you will find will come in very handy. Don't be afraid to use the .m command to contact people in game. It's one of the most useful tools for asking questions or letting a teammate know about something happening in the battle.

If you type .obj n it will show you the number of AO types available and the number of ones placed.

If you click on a town that has an attack of defence order on it and then type .obj I it will tell you how long the AO has been on it.
