Hello, and welcome to my little presentation (well, more of a summary) of what many console commands, located in the game Red Eclipse, can be used for. They are left untouched by most people that don't realize the capabilities that they offer. I myself have played the game, quite a bit recently, and have quickly discovered that the same repetitive CTF or TDM scenario can get rather boring after awhile. I bet even a few of you out there have picked up the game for a week (give or take) and then promptly exited out and never returned. I almost did myself really, but then I discovered a cool trick, which i could only implement using against Bots, in offline play, seeing as how difficult i found it to set up a server of my own. Now, this was fun at first, and well, still is, However, obliterating helpless bots that don't know any better, or rather, never build up an “immunity’ to certain tactics so to speak, can get pretty boring.

The feature i'm getting at here, for those of you out there that are lucky enough to host a server for other players , is weapon customization through gameplay commands. Dont get me wrong, i love to play Bomber Ball as much as the next guy, but the same repetitive game type can get rather stale.

Any administrator, by entering just a few of these commands, can change very basic gameplay ability as well as what your server has to offer. Likewise, anyone that can enter offline play can enter these as well to use them against bots.

Now, i will only be talking about weapon modification this time, as thats the subject i know best currently, however, if i learn more, i might create more in-depth topics to increase playability in the game.

Step 1:

Now then, onto weapon talk.

I’m sure that almost everyone agrees that the weapons that were defaulted into Red Eclipse aren't bad, and maybe even accurately imported to not be too overpowered, but not incredibly difficult to use, so i wont be criticizing the weapons to assume that they are terrible, because frankly, they are not. Rather, how to improve them to be more fun to use. Now this goes without saying, but, you can use this knowledge in two ways:
1. Make ultra OP weapons that no one ever has a chance of getting past, making the game fun for you, but annoying for others, or
2. Making them more fun, or more reliable, and better suited to giving an equal chance in gameplay.

So lets dive right in.

( This is a list of the weapon commands we will be discussing here. )

So, the file above contains configuration commands for the pistol in Red eclipse. However, All weapons have these commands, and can be edited with the same guidelines, by changing the word “Pistol” to “Rifle”.

Here is a list of the current weapon choices available: (DO NOT INCLUDE CAPITAL LETTERS)


Now then, just to be sure that we are all on the same page here, you’ll need to learn a few words and what they mean in game terms.

Player - The person playing the game from their own point of view.
Target - Another player, or bot, that the player encounters or targets.
Weapon - The current weapon held by the player, or targeted by a command.
Projectile - The bullet fired directly from the weapon.
Frag - The “Fragments” or shrapnel left over by the “death” of a projectile.
(Primary) - The primary projectile type fired when player shoots (Left click)
(Secondary) - The secondary projectile type fired when player shoots (Right click)
( -- Integer --  or -- Float -- ) If instead of a definition in the command file, this is listed, it either means that there was no game based definition i could find, or i didn't care about figuring out what id did. However, if you figure these out, (which i strongly recommend you attempt) then feel free to add definitions to the list, so that you dont forget. Remember, this is strictly to help the player, which you might be, and i wont be able to do everything for you. :)

Thats pretty much it, however there's one more that can get a bit complicated for some people, so i will provide a link, and an image for the HEX color format codes.

HEX format color - Format of 0xFFFFFF (Example)
