Legacy:UnrealEd 2 Console

From Unreal Wiki, The Unreal Engine Documentation Site
Jump to: navigation, search

UnrealED 2.0 has a command line box at the bottom of the screen (for the latest version of UEd, see UnrealEd Console). Many of these commands are equivalent to mouse, menu or buttons of the GUI interface, but there are some which are not. Please also see UT Console for other console commands which might apply. The commands below correspond exactly to the #exec commands.

UnreaEd 2 console bar
I've made a start removing emphasis from commands which have interface equivalents.

Notes[edit]

The commands can be entered either upper case or lower case. The list of previously used commands (in the current session) are saved in a drop down list, that can be conveniently re-selected (Click >> Enter), so commonly used commands can be quickly re-activated. Be sure that the correct object is selected before entering command. Also, tool bar buttons can be user created for any of the commands listed here. Many of these commands are seldom used, but can be handy when making large scale systemic alterations to a level (numerous repeat operations).

Commands can be bound to custom toolbar buttons or keys. See binding editor commands. See also UnrealEd interface.

Look for lines in Editor.log that start with "Cmd:" to find out about more possibly interesing console commands.

Actor commands[edit]

ACTOR ADD CLASS=<CLASS> 
add actor of class <class> (eg: CLASS=ASMD). Same as
ACTOR ALIGN 
aligns the vertices of the selected brushes to the grid. Useful for brushes who do not automatically align such as cylinders or spheres
ACTOR APPLYTRANSFORM 
applies the transform permanently to selected brushes. (what's the difference between this and BRUSH APPLYTRANSFORM?)
ACTOR CLIP Z 
In wireframe view it culls brushes that are after a certain distance. The distance being determined by where the Active brush is when it's pressed. Press again to disable. Useful for complex maps.
ACTOR DELETE 
Deletes any and all currently selected actors.
ACTOR DUPLICATE 
duplicates currently selected actor
ACTOR HIDE SELECTED 
hides the currently selected actors / brushes
ACTOR HIDE UNSELECTED 
hides any actors / brushes that are not currently selected
ACTOR KEYFRAME NUM=# 
set the current actor to key frame number # (presumably only has an effect on movers?)
ACTOR MIRROR X 
mirrors the selected actor about the X axis
ACTOR MIRROR Y 
mirrors the selected actor about the Y axis
ACTOR MIRROR Z 
mirrors the selected actor about the Z axis
ACTOR REPLACE BRUSH 
replace selected brush with the builder brush (ie. If you select an added brush and issue this command it will be replaced with another added brush that is the shape of the current builder brush, same for all other brush types) (THIS DOESNT SEEM TO WORK)
ACTOR REPLACE CLASS=<CLASS> 
replace selected actor with actor of class type <class> (eg: CLASS=ASMD). Doesn't work on brushes and movers. See Brush Hacking for this.
ACTOR RESET ALL 
resets the Location, Pivot, Rotation and Scale of the selection. See Actor Context Menu.
ACTOR RESET LOCATION 
resets the selected brush's Location See Actor Context Menu.
ACTOR RESET PIVOT 
resets the selected brush's Pivot. See Actor Context Menu.
ACTOR RESET ROTATION 
resets the selected brush's Rotation. See Actor Context Menu.
ACTOR RESET SCALE 
resets the selected brush's Scale. See Actor Context Menu.
ACTOR UNHIDE ALL 
shows all actors / brushes that may have been hidden. See Toolbox.

Other Stuff – Please categorize.[edit]

NEW STANDALONE <classname> PACKAGE= FILE= CONTEXTCLASS= CONTEXT= NAME= 
 ?
NEW PUBLIC <classname> PACKAGE= FILE= CONTEXTCLASS= CONTEXT= NAME= 
 ?
NEW PRIVATE <classname> PACKAGE= FILE= CONTEXTCLASS= CONTEXT= NAME= 
 ?
NEW <factoryclass> PACKAGE=<packagename> Name=<newobjectname> [Factory-specific parameters follow] 

Used to build objects using a Factory (Editor.ClassFactoryNew, Editor.ClassFactoryUC, Editor.LevelFactory, Editor.LevelFactoryNew, Editor.ModelFactory, Editor.MusicFactory, Editor.PolysFactory, Editor.SoundFactory, Core.TextBufferFactory, Editor.TextureFactory, Editor.FontFactory, Editor.TrueTypeFontFactory, Editor.TextureFactoryNew). This is how the editor imports objects.

Examples:

   new ClassFactoryUC Package=MyLevel Name=XXX File=XXX.uc

I don't know if it actually compiles the thing.

The following might be other properties:

  • ContextClass
  • Context
  • Package
  • Name
  • File


AUDIO IMPORT FILE=<filename> NAME=<name_of_sound_object> GROUP=<packagegroup> 


Imports an audio file into the package of the context in which this command is executed.

In fact, all import commands seem to rely on subclasses of "Factory".


HOOK ACTORPROPERTIES 
I think it does actor properties.
LSTAT 
LightMap stats.
MACRO ??? 
Another name for EXEC? Involves a TextBufferFactory.
TEXTURE IMPORT ALPHATRICK=? NEXT=? MTEX=? DETAIL=? TexFlags=? LODSet=? Mips=?
MODE VERTEXEDIT
MODE SELECTIONLOCK=...
MODE MAPEXT=...
MODE AFFECTREGION=...
CAMERA OPEN XR=x YR=y MISC1=? MISC2=? REN=? HWND=?

Mychaeel: Why are some of the commands put in italics?

Tarquin: I was making a start on marking the ones which are available as menus/toolbox buttons etc, as opposed to the ones which are unique here

Mychaeel: Hmmm... I think it'd be better if those commands' explanations simply included directions how to use them via a menu command.

who can say me how to turn off light coronas, cos i've see nothing while lamps in front of me. fanx in advance

Tarquin: probably under Advanced Options in UT

Dark Pulse: That's correct. You can also use a different renderer; I know the Software Renderer has them turned off by default. However, the Software Renderer really, really bites, so just stick with what he said. ;)

Anonymous: i couldn't find it on the polycount page or here, but what is the command for olde UEd2.0 that shows the polycount? it's showed in the log right? or maybe it's the same as the UEd3.0 command? i don't know... i'll go check that one

SabbathCat: The command is "Stat FPS", at least, in Ued 2.0 it is.

BlackHawk: The "NEW <factoryclass>..." seems to be a really powerful command. Only problem is that the exact syntax for the different factories cannot be found anywhere. Can anyone elaborate on this plz?
