Short and simple suggestion. Cheat disabling sv_cheat 2 mode

Postby MaxRideWizardLord » Thu Jan 24, 2019 4:23 pm

Hello.

sv_cheats 2 state would serve a simple function, it would disable all of the cheats that you can use.

Since my binds of all binded keys consist of like... 70% cheats, mostly just to test various mods and test my own attempts at creating something, sv_cheats 2 would be incredible useful when you finally decide to play games and mods the legit, and thus you won't accidently click the q button next to W that would give you terminator bonus by accident, and etc.

Wouldn't -1 be a more sensible value for this?

Also, you can do something like this yourself by with this console command: test > $sv_cheats 0 "<your commands>"
Then just set sv_cheats to 1 when you want the commands, and you don't have to worry about them misfiring.

Or just...unbind the keys. Or move them somewhere you're less likely to hit by accident.

How about something different: "cl_blockcheats" - which only blocks cheats locally, and can be flipped off and on at-will by the user (is not latched), and its setting does not affect others in a netgame?

As someone who uses debugging keys frequently, I can see a lot of use in the suggestion that OP proposed. Sorry.

I could implement something like that in a total span of 2 minutes and it makes a lot more sense than extending sv_cheats, in my opinion.

Dang, that's handy. I'm playing through Square again for testing's sake, and I swear I accidentally hit my noclip keybind once per map. This ought to save a brain cell or twenty.

The point is, cheats do work with sv_cheats 0 in singleplayer game, aside from Nightmare difficulty.

Unbinding and rememeber the exact commands would be so much botheration just for that, and I have my entire keyboard binded already. I've even attempted to make simple aliases which would unbind and rebind the debug keys. Which is why I suggested this in first case.

Heh, that's why I play your mods mostly in Nightmare difficulty. :D Afterall, at least they are not filled with infinite monster respawn non-sense. :mrgreen:
