Console not working
Just recently my console in TF2 has stopped working, when I try to type in a command, nothing happens. It just stays the same. Anyone who knows how to fix this?

Go to Library on steam and then select "all games" and find Team Fortress 2.
Then right click on Team Fortress 2 and select "properties". In there you should find
"set launch options" and if you click it type in "-console". That way your console should
appear everytime you launch Team Fortress.

The key to normally launch the console is a bit glitchy and only work when it want to. I would strongly suggest just having it activated everytime you launch Team Fortress.

What command are you trying to enter? Is what you are typing showing up in the chat bar of the console?

Don't listen to above poster. Obviously you know how to open console, you just dont know how to use it properly.

Can you please type the Exact command you are entering in the console? The odds are you are just inputting it incorrectly.

It IS a way for him to fix his issue of not using the console properly. All because the key to open the console is glitchy it will randomly close and open itself and sometimes not even do either of them. Sometimes it will even appear as if it's open even though it's closed. This way it stays there and all the commands he put in should work.

Again, the original post clearly has nothing to do with OPENining the console. He is clearly asking about inputting a command and it not working. Reading comprehension.

I type in my commands perfectly but they dont work in-game. No, they arent sv_cheat commands, just commands that help my game run better, but they dont save. Any fix?
