i am an admin on a moh:sh server. some of us admins use bt and some use sh to play the game. the problem i have is that a new admin is having trouble installing an admin console. she put the console file directly into her maintt folder but when she is playing on the server she cannot access her console. it should be bound to F8 key. she has reinstalled the game and it still does not work. i was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to why it isn't working.


thank you very much

Did she enable the console in the game options menu?
Are you using a third party console (I don't recall there being a special console file for the regular in game console - so what admin console / tool are you using?)

checking off the enable console box didn't help. she has uninstalled both aa and bt, reinstalled, downloaded any patches and installed them and still nothing. the console is sent to her as a .pk3 file which she would save into her maintt file. the program is set up so on install it should automatically bind to F8 key.

Not at my game rig right now, but I think you can set the UI console on in the command line by adding a "+set ui_console 1" or something to that effect. Just fire up the game and do a cvarlist *console* or a cvarlist *ui* and you should find it.

Just to be sure we are talking about the same thing, hitting the ~ key fails to bring up the console?

I suspect she should add a key map to her start up that binds the F8 key. It could be she has some other key binding being called in her current config that is overriding the F8 key bind. This is where having access to the standard game console is good. As soon as the game has started she could pull it up and see if the pk3 is being pulled in the directory load and what cfg files are being exec'd to see what might be overwriting the F8 key bind.

Often times addons for MOH utilize normal game files in their pk3s. If there are duplicates, the last file read is used. This same problem occurs often with mods. You might want to check the files of the tool and see if this is the case. Often the DmPrecache file is used to exec something and if there are 2 copies of that file (or similar files) in the directory, only 1 will be read and used.
