Side effects of "forcecvar" ?


Best Answer gaoesa, 13 May 2014 - 09:50 AM

Using forcecvar on com_hunkmegs has no effect. The reason is that the client game would need to be completely restarted.

Hello,

 

I run since yesterday a new map who needs to have "com_hunkmegs 128".

 

So, in silent/mapconfigs/fueldump-z.cfg, I've put :

forcecvar com_hunkmegs 128

But I wonder if that can cause some problems to some clients ... because it is not a "classical" CVAR, it is latched, and maybe needs "admin permission" to take effect (I think of OS different to WindowsXP), or else known-problems ?

 

So I'd like to know what's your advice please ?

 

Bye

$mart

 

 

PS: map is fueldump-z  http://forum.splatte...415

Also, keep in mind forcecvars are saved in configstrings so it's better to keep the number of forced cvars as low as possible.
