    I've been trying to take a look at some arena maps just by entering them with the "map" command, but I can't find a way to just walk around freely. The best I could do by scrolling through "mp_" commands was to set "mp_waitingforplayers_cancel" to 1 and then "retry" to take effect (not sure if that command alone did the job). But this made it so that I will win the round as soon as it starts, since there's no more players. (I scrolled through some of the "sv_" commands, but didn't find anything useful)

    I googled the forums (search feature was taking too long) and I could only find this thread, which is useful as reference though I'm already familiar with most of these commands. I know most of them are useful for map testing, but what I really need is to disable any game rules there is, so I can be free to test and check on things, or in this case to study other maps by myself.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    when you load up an arena map, either you can go into spec and fly around, or go to console, type sv_cheats 1, bot ... then join a team yourself. You'll be ingame with a bot, and can freely run around.

    Well, I tought of that. But I didn't try it since I imagine the bot will eventualy get annoying and distracting... :\ (Even with buddha mode) And maybe the bot will try to cap the point and end the round anyway.

    But if all else fails, I will probably be doing that.

    if you do just "bot" then the bot won't do anything.

    Hmm, indeed... that's interesting! I thought a bot would act... like a bot. :) That's useful then. Thanks.

    EDIT: And btw, the spec mode wouldn't be useful, unless I changed the spec speed to mimic a player speed (would be sort of another solution, though). But since my goal is to compare distances with actual travel times, rocket/sticky jumps, and such, since I'm more used to hl2dm's dimentions and its related stuff, I really need to walk around and do stuff in the maps I'm checking (including my own).
