"/aq remove extensionname" to uninstall for the current specialization.


"/aq hush" or "/aq stop" will squelch the prompts.

"/aq go" or "/aq start" will turn the prompts back on.


"/aq channel channelname" to change the audio track that AudioQs will play sounds on. (MASTER, SFX, MUSIC, AMBIENCE, DIALOG, TALKING HEAD)
