Ok, so originally, my scoreboard wasn't showing up in-game when I pressed TAB. So, I opened the console and typed +showscores. The problem is, now, TAB doesn't hide the scoreboard and it opens up every time I respawn. I tried typing hidescores but that only works for one round.

Please help! I can't play with this.

    Does -showscores work?

  • DId you just type +showscores or did you bind it to something ? Apr 22, 2017 at 19:21
  • Try going into game settings and changing the binds

It sounds like you've just typed "+showscores" into the console and left it at that which is causing it to sporadically pop up. If you want to use tab to open and close it then you must bind the command to the key. To bind the command you simply need to type the following command into the console:

bind "TAB" "+showscores"

The following format will work for any command that you want to bind:

bind "key" "command"
