I'm sad, I thought this was gonna be "how to cast" but it's how to shoutcast videos ^^

I guess I'll have to find somewhere else how to cast :D

Well I tried my best to stay away from software as there are to many to choose from, this is more what you can do with whatever software you use :)

These are my bible when making the SNF splashscreens:

Message_Hide: Hides messages
Message_Show: Shows messages
FOW_Toggle: Disable Fog of War
taskbar_hide: Hide Taskbar
taskbar_show: Show Taskbar
restart: Restarts game
abort: Aborts game


But I think you may have forgotten a few. And aren't they case-sensitive?

- message_hide: hides things like "Playback" and "Paused"
- message_show
- game_hideui: hides alot of stuff, such as squad selection and icons
- game_showui
- cursor_hide: hides the cursor
- cursor_show
- UI_TerritoryHide: hides the territory lines
- UI_TerritoryShow

Could somebody pls confirm about these being case-sensitive? Fatal, let me know if you would like us to edit/change anything in the original post.

I'm fairly sure they are case-sensitive, so you can change that, tbh the one you really only need for casting/recording is the message_hide, I know that is case-sensitive, maybe I forgot about it in my original post or it was edited to that state, I'm not sure, but go ahead and change that.

I 'forgot' alot of commands, cause they are of no use when casting, you wouldn't want to hide the unit icons, territory borders or the HUD when casting as it would just confuse the people who aren't used to the game and can tell from just how the unit looks what it is or exactly what territory is connected to what.

Also I think you would benefit more from using the Misc_SuperScreenshot command, it only seems to work in -dev mode however nowadays sadly and as that now produces a sync-error (probably an ugly fix to deny people using commands in multiplayer) it's kinda useless (I'm not sure sync error effects replays and changes the outcome), I know it used to work a long time ago and took great screenshots without the need of disabling unit icons, mousecursor, HUD etc as it did it for you automatically every screenshot, also it took them at a massive resolution (somewhere around 7000x4000).

Change Message_Hide to message_hide atleast, it's the most important one.

Ok I updated the case-sensitive stuff. Wasn't sure about "FOW_toggle". That's a nice tip about "Misc_SuperScreenshot".... I've never heard that one before. Gonna try it.

Thanks for the update, I used the SuperScreenshot back in the day, just make sure to run coh in -dev or otherwise it will probably not work anymore, they changed/disabled alot of stuff :(

And I agree Seb, from the little digging I have done no such thing exists for the chat :/
Maybe if you disable all the UIs and HUDs it goes away, but I don't wanna do that while casting.
