View Full Version : Console Command for IP Address?
08-19-2003, 07:13 PM
Hey folks, another quick/probably-obvious console question for ya :p
Does anyone know the command for displaying the IP address of a server while you're in there?
It's so that I can either give the IP to friends on MSN, or input it into favourites later. I don't like to 'fave' servers without playing them first, and it's not always easy to find them in the list again.
Cheers in advance folks,
Try pressing esc while your in game and then clicking on about. If I'm not totally stupid it should show you there.
EDIT: Oh and I have no idea how to display it in the console, sorry. :o

The console is shift+tilde
ie: (hold SHIFT and press) `
It's the ` ~ key just to the left of the 1 ! key on QWERTY keyboards.
IIRC, when you first join a game, the IP will be listed in the console (since it keeps a log of all the messages sent to the game while you're in there).

Somebody give that man a biscuit! :D Cheers dude!!
Yus, that is indeed the way to display the current-game IP. Don't know why I didn't think of that myself to be honest, still.
Swampies to the rescue again, eh? ;) :D

Well, fancy my ol' fellow-red-DFA-spamming laming partner not knowing either! Otherwise he could have just told me on MSN, or made the first reply in this thread! ;) :p
(Ooh, and I feel major whoopage coming on ;) )
When I'm recovered from Reading, your a** is grass...
