Here are some useful console commands.
By: CBI Elite

   When playing Coutner Strike, the ~ key is 99% of the time bound to access the "console". This console allows players and server admins to change the properties of the game while playing, such as setting the maximum round time, the amount of money to start off with (default is $800), and even reduce the quality of sprites (eg. sprays, smoke grenade, etc.). Obviouslly there are many commands that only the admins can use (gravity level, time limits) and they are listed below amongst others. Also: x=0 means off and x=1 means on.
