PostSubject: How to print the list of map names from your RF multi folder.   Wed Jul 08, 2009 1:22 am

Hey guys there is a way to print the list of map names in your RF multi folder so you dont have to try to memorize them.

Start - Run - type - cmd
At the command prompt type this:

cd C:\games\redfaction\user_maps\multi (if your red faction installation is located in a different directory you will have to enter that location)

dir /b > c:\RF_multifolderlist.txt (you can name it whatever you want)

Press Enter and a file called RF_multifolderlist.txt should be at the root of your C drive. It will open with notepad.

For those who may be interested, ‘dir’ is the Directory list command, ‘/b’ tells it to omit the file’s time, date and size information and the forward arrow or greater than symbol (>) tells it to send the information into the file called listfolder.text

From - http://www.pctipsbox.com/print-folder-list/


I also found this in my search. You can do it right from the folder once its setup - http://forums.pcpitstop.com/index.php?showtopic=158901
I have not had a chance to test it out since it is for XP only and I am currently running Vista.
Somebody test this out and let us know how it works.



Here is my current list from my RF multi folder. I sorted the folder by type and moved anything that was not a .vpp file type.
(you dont have to enter the .vpp part of the name when changing maps in RF)

Also when changing to a map that has spaces in it you have to put the map name in parenthesis. " "
Example - rcon level "dm lotsa's lounge"
Enjoy!

Ok, I found this at - http://www.redfactionwiki.com/index.php?title=Console_commands

It must be the time_limit one?

Pure Faction Client/Server Console Commands


Pure Faction has it's own slightly modified console, which shows as a shade of blue in-game. Some extra console commands are enabled in Pure Faction, as seen in the following list:

* ban - Kicks the player from the server and adds his IP to your banlist.txt. Only works on servers. +++

* ban_ip - Kicks any players with that IP or range from the server and adds that IP or range to your banlist.txt. Only works on servers

* info - Displays information such as Level Name, Level Time (DD/HH/MM/SS), framerate, client names, client pings, and client IPs.

* kick - Kicks the player from the server. Only works on servers. +++

* level - Changes to the specified map (after the freezetime at the scoreboard). Only works on servers.

* name - ONLY works on a Listen Server or Client. Changes the server name to "'s game" (if listen server) as well as the player's nickname.

* rcon_request - Request remote console access as a client on a dedicated server. +++

* quit - Exits the Red Faction server or client.

* rate - Sets the server's or client's update rate in bytes/sec.

* say - Sends a chat message to everyone in the server as "Server:" if server, or as your player nickname if client.

* team_say - Sends a chat message to everyone on your team. Only works on clients.

* team - Change to the specified team. Only works on clients.

* simultaneous_ping - Number of servers to ping at a time. Only works on clients.

* dump_tga - Changes the format in which screenshots will be written on (toggle between .tga & .jpg) when PrintScreen is pressed. Only works on clients.

* spectate - Go into spectate mode. Only works when you're dead and haven't spawned yet. Only works on clients. ++

* ms - Sets mouse sensitivity to specified number (as per cent). Only works on clients.

* togglesound - Toggles between sounds disabled and sounds enabled. Only works clientside

* togglenetmeter - Toggles display of the net meter. Only works clientside

* help - Displays list of available console commands.

* ? - Same as help

* man - Same as help

* capture_limit - Changes the flag capture limit in a CTF game. +

* geo_limit - Changes the amount of geo craters that can be made in a level. +

* kill_limit - Changes the kill limit in a DM or TeamDM game. +

* time_limit - Changes the time remaining in the game. +

* ti - Switches between Pure Faction's new direct-input mouse input and the classic mouse input in Red Faction by default.

* ts - Switches between Pure Faction's new scoreboard and the classic scoreboard in Red Faction by default.

* vpps - Show vpp packfile information.

+ Function can alternatively be performed via dedicated_server.txt or In-Game Editor.

++ Removed in Pure Faction version 2.0 in favour of first person spectate but will be brought back in a future version.

+++ Function can alternatively be performed via Pure Faction's F1 menu.

This will only print vpp names, which #1 may not be the same as the RFL name and #2 will include non-map items like music, huds, or other mods.

The next PF version includes a command where you can list all maps, or search for a map.

Where do you get a list of .rfl names?
The non-map items can be easily filtered from the .txt file.
Ive been using this for years without any problems.

Yeah Im looking forward to the next version of PF, do you know when it will be out?
So your saying that while in game you will be able to search and change the map?
Thats exactly what ive been wishing for!

You'd have to parse the contents of the vpp files to get a true list of RFL names.

The next version of PF will be out "when it's done"... that's all I know. Hopefully soon.

Can these comands be used by RCON holders?
example:

* capture_limit - Changes the flag capture limit in a CTF game. +

* geo_limit - Changes the amount of geo craters that can be made in a level. +

* kill_limit - Changes the kill limit in a DM or TeamDM game. +

* time_limit - Changes the time remaining in the game. +

I tried the time_limit one last night when I had rcon and nothing happened.
I guess it has to be done from the server??
