Console

UNIGINE console is used for standard input, output and error streams for the file loading, rendering system, audio and video systems, path-finding system, physics engine, file system and many others.

Can be opened in any UNIGINE-based application.

How to Open Console#

A built-in console is called by pressing the grave accent (`) key, placed under the ESC key:

The console can be hidden by pressing the grave accent (`) key one more time. See how to assign another key here.

Console Operation#

Console operation can be either command or variable:

  • Command is a directive to a console to perform a specific task.
  • Variable is an identifier that contains some stored value.

Command Syntax#

Console command can take null, one or several arguments. The syntax is:

Source code
command_to_execute // null argument
command_to_execute argument // one argument
command_to_execute argument argument // two arguments

Hints

  • To see the current variable value, other acceptable values and short description, just type it and press the Enter key. For example, if you type the video_resizable variable, you get the following result:
    Source code
    video resizable toggle
    0 is non-resizable mode
    1 is resizable mode
    video_resizable = 1
  • To complete a command or variable name, just start typing first letters and press the TAB key until you get the required result.

How to Change the Console Opening Key#

If you want to change the default grave accent (`) console turning on or off key, do one of the following actions:

  • Open the user configuration file (configs/default.user by default) and change the ASCII-based key code in the following line:
    Source code (XML)
    <console_key>96</console_key>

materials_loading_modeConfig file: *.boot
Description:
  • Variable.   Prints the current materials loading mode.
  • Command.   Sets the materials loading mode.
Arguments:
0 - Minimal memory consumption and maximum Engine loading speed. Сaching for materials and shaders is disabled, so everything is loaded on demand resulting in lots of freezes, spikes, etc. This method can be used when spikes are less important than memory consumption. It is recommended for fast iterations during the application development phase as less time is spent on launching your application and loading resources.
1 - Caching is enabled for materials, so materials are created at Engine's startup rather than at run time. Engine startup takes more time than for the first mode and more memory is used. There are less spikes in this mode, but they occur sometimes. This mode can be enabled on a constant basis for a small project having a small number of materials (in case of satisfactory performance and sufficient memory amount).
2 - Caching of materials is enabled along with shader cache generation and loading. This mode requires compilation of all shaders resulting in very long loading times. Everything is kept in memory with no streaming required. This mode is the best as it ensures stable work and significant reduction of spikes.
Notice
In case of large projects with tens of thousands of materials the amount of available memory can be exceeded, as shader cache takes a lot of it.
Thus, it is recommended to be used for production phase (when you hand over you application to the end user). (by default)
