dedicated server console autocomplete

Recommended Posts

hi,

a few requests

  • autocompletion would be great
  • as well as the ability to paste (CTRL+V)
  • and finally could you make it so that the line to input commands is separate from server logging ? (learned to my dismay that you shall not quit the master server first, otherwise the cave server spams messages which disrupt your typing commands)

You can press <tab> or click the recommendations above the command line to get somewhat of an autocompletion ingame.

You can paste into the command line, both ingame (ctrl+v, afterwards ctrl again to enable remote input) and the dedicated console (right click on linux ssh).

It doesn't matter if your command is disrupted. Just continue typing as if nothing happened. The server actually does specificially read the input and ignores all the stuff it pastes itself. Even if it says

c_
[error] whatever
shu
[error] whatever
tdo
[error] whatever
wn(
[error] whatever
)
[error] whatever
<pressed enter key>

it'll shut down the server without complains. It might be a bit confusing at first, but it works.

Alternatively you can launch a second script, that inserts the shutdown command into your server console. How this works specificially depends on how you are running your server. (screen, docker, nohup, etc.)

Thanks for the reply.

I know it doesn't matter if the command is disrupted but as someone who doesn't look at keyboard when typing this is moderately disturbing

in windows dedicated : Tab just makes a Tab input
and right click gives nothing

CTRL+V does input the characters ^V

Try either right click and then select insert in the command line, or <ctrl>+<shift>+<v> to insert on a windows machine.
