Don't want to read a guide? Watch the video below for a rundown!

Step 1: Enable Developer Console

> Go to Settings

> Go to the Keyboard Tab

> Scroll down to an option called Enable Developer Console

> Bind "Toggle Developer Console" to the key of your choice (I prefer to use the ` in the top left of my keyboard)

Step 2: Create a Bind

There are many binds you can make, here are some more useful binds that I would recommend setting up to improve your experience both on AtomicRP and on other DarkRP servers. For a list of keys that you can put in the "<put key here>" part, check the list below.

Text Binds
> bind "<put key here>" "say /advert Mug Drop 10k or Die in 10 seconds."
> bind "<put key here>" "say /advert Party Raid"
> bind "<put key here>" "say /advert Counter"
> bind "<put key here>" "say /advert Warn 1/2/3" (Remember when using this one to use it with 3 seconds between each warn)

Ammo Buy Binds
> (357 Ammo) bind "<put key here>" "say /buyammo 357"
> (AR Ammo) bind "<put key here>" "say /buyammo ar2"
> (Pistol Ammo) bind "<put key here>" "say /buyammo pistol"
> (Shotgun Ammo) bind "<put key here>" "say /buyammo buckshot"
> (Sniper Ammo) bind "<put key here>" "say /buyammo SniperPenetratedRound"

Useful Command Binds
> (Holster Gun) bind "<put key here>" "say /invholster"
> (Mute Everyone) bind "<put key here>" "voice_enable 0"
> (Unmute Everyone) bind "<put key here>" "voice_enable 1"

> (Kill Bind) bind "<put key here>" "kill"

Dance Binds
> (Thumbs Up) bind "<put key here>" "_darkrp_doanimation 1610"
> (Follow Me) bind "<put key here>" "_darkrp_doanimation 1611"

> (Bow) bind "<put key here>" "_darkrp_doanimation 1612"
> (Non Verbal No) bind "<put key here>" "_darkrp_doanimation 1613"
> (Wave) bind "<put key here>" "_darkrp_doanimation 1615"
> (Lion Pose) bind "<put key here>" "_darkrp_doanimation 1616"
> (Sexy Dance) bind "<put key here>" "_darkrp_doanimation 1617"
> (Laugh) bind "<put key here>" "_darkrp_doanimation 1618"
> (Dance) bind "<put key here>" "_darkrp_doanimation 1642"
