  • [INFO] Battlefield 3 command console revealed, graphics settings explained

    Source: http://www.neoseeker.com/news/17606-...ngs-explained/

    Firstly, the game supports a command console; hitting the tilde key (~), will bring it up, at which point you can enter one of a few commands (some are restricted to prevent cheating). Render.Drawfps 1 will display the average FPS over the last second, while Render.PerfOverlayVisible 1 will bring up graphs depicting specific CPU and GPU information which can aid in determining trouble spots, like outdoor vs. indoor performance, or a CPU bottleneck.

    Other commands are not yet known, though Andersson notes on Twitter the ability to hide the HUD will likely be added later on for the purposes of machinima and such, and there's a possiblity for network stats and other items as well.
    Good to see this. Discuss.

      Access to a command console is always a bonus. It will be interesting to see how much of the settings and configuration they expose through the console.

          @Demize99 @repi will there be a "draw no hud" in the console commands for anyone that wants to make videos?

          @Jkoverlord @Demize99 not at launch, but heard that feedback after my talk also & it may be something we can include in a future update
          those are his words, so.. maybe!

            Oh, well.

            Hopefully we will be able to get ride of the obnoxious chat screen in our field of vision.

            Why DICE/EA ignore end user interface flexibility is beyond me.

            Such options must be rather minor coding issues.

              I hope you dont think the chat box will look anything like the beta in the final released game.

                I do not know what to think.

                    I always love the options of using a command console in the elder scrolls series so it will be interesting to mess around with it in BF3.

                      I still consider this a plus. If nothing else, it's made me more anxious for the release version!

                          No, that's just what HE calls it. Other people have different names for the glowing thing. ;)
