Console

From DoomWiki.org

Console is an internal command prompt of a game. It can be used to activate various game functions and to alter the game's settings. It also functions as a log that lists some of the previous game events and messages along with the commands that have been activated in it.

History[edit]

Classic Doom games and other games based on the Doom engine did not originally include a console. After the Doom source code was released the feature was implemented into various source ports. Doom 3 was the first official Doom series game that was released with a console feature.

In addition to source ports, some editing utilities also feature a console. It can be used to modify the configuration, perform debugging, or execute certain advanced commands.
