Ok, I have scoured these forums trying to find away to activate sv_cheats 1 in my MP game. I get the error msg of "Cheats not enabled on this server" I looked up the cvar list and have seen that the sv_cheats 1 is ready only. How to I alter this so I can enable cheats? I would like to be able to gibb to my hearts content but I cannot alter anything till I get the cheats enabled. Commands such as g_saberrealisticcombat 1 do not seem to work or atleast I am not getting a response msg to show that it worked. I have looked in the pk3 files but have not found what I am looking for. It is possible I have over looked something and I would appreciate any advice. My end plan is to bind the cheat enable key and all of the cheat type items I would want to have running eg. dismember. Some take abit of pity on this poor soul and tell me what the hell to do or where I can the information I am looking for.

How about ;) ..... devmap <mapname>

Then all the cheats will work, <mapname> being something like ffa_bespin duel_pit etc...

Good luck

Thanks for the suggestion,but I was kinda lookign for something that would not require me to devmap to a specific level. Even with the Devmap command I still donot have access to most the of editing cheats relating to dismemberment and such. I need to find away to alter the read only status of the sv_cheats

In RtCW, in order to play SP with cheats, you had to modify the shortcut by adding +set sv_cheats 1 to the target line after the quotes. See if that helps. :)

sv_cheats is not needed for cheats. You dont need to use it..

Devmapall will enable cheats on your MP server to change those values.

dismemberment is not a cheat, you don't need to enable cheat for it to work
