String commands

String commands, also known as strcmds or nonccmds, are strings forwarded over the network for processing, rather than being handled by the command system.

Client string commands

This process occurs when a command is not found in the client, or when the cmd command is used to directly forward the command to the server. You can also run this for bots using bot_command.

There are a few types of client string commands:

  • Engine client commands: these are special commands already registered on the client and server as console commands, but are handled through string forwarding. These are all listed in the cvarlist.
  • Dispatch client commands: these are console commands only registered on the server (flagged as GAMEDLL), but are accepted to be run by the client. These are listed on the cvarlist as well.
  • Client commands: these are all other commands, which are parsed manually by handlers through their string command and arguments. These are not listed on the cvarlist.

Server string commands

This process occurs when the server wants the client to run a command which is flagged by server_can_execute.

You can use the clientcmd command or a point_clientcommand entity to send these commands.
