Category:Legacy To Do pick a command from this page, find it in the wiki under Console Commands, and delete from this page. If not present elsewhere on the wiki, then this page is not fully obsolete.

This page is likely to eventually disappear. The most likely reason for it staying around is if some commands existed in UT2003 that do not work in UT2004.

If a demo is recorded at a higher framerate than your computer is able to play it back, the demo will play in slow motion

Discussion[edit]

MythOpus: Heres something... odd. I can't summon anything in the console :(

EntropicLqd: I've noticed that some of the objects I used to be able to summon are no longer summonable. If you check your UT/UT2003 log file you'll see an error message that tells you the object you are trying to summon is either bStatic or something else - maybe !bPlaceable. I forget the specifics.

Mythopus: Ya, in their script they aren't ' placeable '. I can't use any cheats in multi-player either (any at all) (and yes, i am ADMIN and I A<M logged in :S )

MythOpus: I think I found the problem... UT2003 requires a Pickup class to actually pick up a weapon.. I believe you need to get the Pickup Class name not the Weapon name... I need permission to change all that tho ;)
