2 Gear Calculator

This simple program will allow you to calculate the figure needed when you want to restrict what weapons/gear (grenades) are used on a server. This server CVAR is g_gear and is set to zero, which is the default condition.

3 Allowvote Calculator

The Allowvote Calculator allows you to calculate the g_allowvote figure. By clicking on what can be voted on you will determine a unique figure that will be entered under the g_allowvote setting.

For example, if you wanted to let gamers vote on what map to play, cycle to the next map, kick a player and shuffle teams the figure would be '92' or set g_allowvote "92" in the server.cfg file.

Server CVARs can only be changed by people with access to a server. Generally, if you are playing in an online game your console commands will have no affect on the server settings. The only time you need to worry about server CVARs is if you are running a server. For a description of all the Quake III Arena CVARs see Command Keen's Quake 3 Console Page.

These are variables that are unique to Urban Terror. You can enable and disable them in the server.cfg file that came with Urban Terror.
