Call of Duty 7: Whitelisting Dvars
- Whitelist if you want to be able to toggle the dvars from console, otherwise you can still set dvars from CFG / script without whitelisting but you won't be able to access from console.
To whitelist you would just need:
setmoddvar developer setmoddvar developer_script
Then in-game you would exec the CFG, close the console and reopen it and enter something along the lines of:
/developer 1; developer_script 1; logfile 1; devmap <mapname>
That would turn on the developer mode and logfile (console_mp.log) for you and load a map.
If you want to just set them through a CFG without whitelisting:
developer 1 developer_script 1
Then just exec that CFG in-game and do a map_restart / map_rotate / devmap. You won't be able to toggle them off/on through console though, you'd have to turn off the game or exec another CFG that sets them to zero.
Note from Sparks:
I personally would just whitelist them so you have some more freedom to toggle them at your leisure while leaving the game running.
You can always fix script run-time errors / make script changes, build your Mod.FF, and do a /devmap <mapname> to load the new script for fast iteration without ever having to reboot the game / mod up each time (running in windowed mode).
