Vendetta Appendices

This command list is meant to be a guide for the advanced user, or anyone interested in writing their own aliases. Direct access to these commands is not necessary for everyday gameplay, except where noted elsewhere in the manual.

These commands can be used in the Vendetta Online console (accessed by the tilde key: "~"), or in any chat window. Commands must be preceeded by slashes. For example:

/logoff - starts the logoff countdown

/msg "Incarnate" Hello! - sends a friendly message to Incarnate

Some commands take a player's name as a parameter. If the name contains spaces, it must be enclosed in quotes. You can tab-complete players' names to save time, by typing the first few letters of the name and then pressing the tab key.

Also, if you're writing your own aliases, you can use the macro %target% to automatically fill in the name of the player you have targeted.
