DevCon - the developer console


This is more like a first preview release of the DevCon. Still it is already very powerful and most developers should find it very useful.

As we always recommend use modfolders to seperate the custom content from the official game content to prevent problems.
For different ways to set up your modfolders and use them please visit our FAQ.

When you are using the Steam version you can find a Steam mod installation and activation FAQ here.

Included .pbo files:

Press ESC while playing (works for editor/SP/MP).
(Note: in MP it only works when being a logged-in admin)

1) For now you have to check the roadmap to find out about all the features and key shortcuts.
2) Feel free to help to merge the documentation into the wiki.
3) Anyone interest is welcome to join the team.
4) Post bugs and suggestions in the issue tracker please.
5) Check the source if you want to learn a bit of new stuff.
6) ToDo prio list by order:
# Command tab (buttons to apply SQF commands easily onto cursorTarget/player/other unit sets
# Information tab (fields to easily check details about cursorTarget/player/other unit sets)
# AI debugging
# Integration of 3rd party tools

(more details in the issue tracker soon)
