Code:
capture_start                Starts capturing an .avi file.
capture_stop                 Stops capturing.
capturedemo                  Starts playing a demo and starts capturing it
                             also with the same name. Exits game after capturing's done.
cmdlist                      Lists all console commands.
cvarlist                     Lists all console variables.
demdir                       The same as dir, except that this cmd is only for .dem files.
                             So please omit the .dem extension from the wildcard.
dir                          Lists all files matching wildcard. Works the same way like
                             other shells' dir command.
gamedir                      Changes the mod's directory. If you started Quake with e.g.
                             -game ctf and during the game you wish to play with an other mod,
                             you can change it dynamically, without quitting the game.
                             Relative pathnames like "newdir/ctf" are not allowed.
getcoords                    Writes the player's origin into the given file or to "camfile.cam"
                             if there was no filename given.
loadcharset                  Loads an external console charset. Console charsets should be placed
                             inside textures/charsets dir.
loadsky                      loadsky [filename] Skyboxes goes to "/env" directory.  This command
                             also sets r_skybox's value. You can change skyboxes through this cvar
                             as well.
menu_demos                   Pops up the Demos menu, the same as you enter it from the Main Menu
menu_maps                    Map menu
menu_particles               Particles menu
menu_videomodes              Video modes menu
menu_videooptions            Video options menu
play2                        Unknown!
printtxt                     Prints a text file into the console.  You can now read SDA demos'
                             txt files without quitting the game :)
rcon                         Added "rcon" command from ProQuake.
set_interpolated_weapon      Needs further documentation (fixme)
toggleparticles              Changes all gl_part_* vars' values to their opposite. A pleasant way
                             if you wouldn't like to set all variables one by one.
writeconfig                  Writes a .cfg file with your actual game settings. See more info
                             about this at the "cfg_savevars" variable.

I merged a lot of information together into the following. One way to use this conveniently is to do Edit --> Find in your browser (FireFox, IE, etc.)

This isn't meant as a manual, more as technical documentation and a convenient way to check commands for various reasons. It is mostly merged information from Joe's changelog and features list with some additional commands/cvars that vary from standard Quake.

Joequake is now starting to piss me off :evil:

1. When you walk the gun doesn't move back and forth it just stays in one position (like nehahra)

2. When you pick up powerups you just glow the screen doesn't change color

3. When you take damage the screen doesn't turn red and when you pick up somethin the screen flashes 2 seconds later with hardly any flash

It seems 2. and 3. are linked to the commands v_quadcshift etc. and v_bonusflash but i change it and it's still like this!

grrrr!

1. the guns movement depends on the cl_bob* cvars settings

2. 3. if v_*cshift, cl_bonusflash etc are turned on, it should work. Also use gl_hwblend 0.

scr_printstats 0 will get rid of the top right corner information. Values greater than 1 show more information like kills and secrets.
