I found some command line arguments for Commandos 2 and Commandos 3 while disassembling the .exe files.

I didn't find anywhere on the internet that describes these arguments, so I decided to create this topic.

These are for both Commandos 2 and Commandos 3 unless stated otherwise.

NOTE: These commands are NOT case sensitive.

 

-Em <filename>

Use <filename> as the mission list file. default is 'MISIONES.DAT'. The file has to be in '\DATA\MISIONES' directory.

Example:

comm2.exe -Em MY_MISIONES.DAT

-Warp <mission_name>

Load mission <mission_name> when the game is started. The mission name must be defined in the MISIONES.DAT (or the file specified using the "-em" argument. Can be used for testing a mission without having to go through the menus. In my experience, using this argument with Commandos 3 crashes the game.

Example:

comm2.exe -Warp TU01

-Rolling <filename>

Probably for rolling demos. Tries to open the <filename> from the "COMM2\OUTPUT" directory. Tries to open another file in "COMM2\OUTPUT\CAPTURAS" directory. In Commandos 3 these directories are "COMM3\OUTPUT" and "COMM3\OUTPUT\CAPTURAS" respectively.

 

-NoDraw

Results in a black screen. But why?!

Example:

comm2.exe -NoDraw

-NoLimitedFps

Remove the FPS limit.

Example:

comm2.exe -NoLimitedFps

-FXFile <fx_file>

I didn't test it but it seems to change the FX file. The default is "DATA\FX\FX.GRL".

 

-PruebasJon

The game enters a test mode which I think is used for testing GUI elements.

Example:

comm2.exe -PruebasJon

-PruebasVicente

Unknown.

Example:

comm2.exe -PruebasVicente

-PruebasJavier

This command is Commandos 2 only. The game starts with a black screen. Other effects are unknown.

Example:

comm2.exe -PruebasJavier

-NOCONSOLE

Unknown.

Example:

comm2.exe -NOCONSOLE

-NoPreloadCam

Unknown.

Example:

comm2.exe -NoPreloadCam

-FIRMA

Creates a binary file named "FIRMA.TXT" in the installation directory, containing a signature of some sort.

comm2.exe -FIRMA

-AvanceAgua

Unknown.

comm2.exe -AvanceAgua

It's a pity that the -Warp argument only works if the directory and mission name are the same (like RY\RY.MIS).

Otherwise we could create a starter application for Destination Paris that shows a description and screenshots for each mission.

 


-Warp <mission_name>

Load mission <mission_name> when the game is started. The mission name must be defined in the MISIONES.DAT (or the file specified using the "-em" argument. Can be used for testing a mission without having to go through the menus. In my experience, using this argument with Commandos 3 crashes the game.

Example:

comm2.exe -Warp TU01
