    Wearing the |TG| tag

    I think this post in the Official Announcements forum deserves a plug:





    "You may see players on the servers using the "TG" tag in their name when they play on the server. Players who become regulars quickly ask: may I use the TG tag in my name?

    Anyone who endorses and practices our playstyle and rulesets may wear the TG tag when playing on our or other servers. Bottom line: if you support TG for what it is and want to show that support, the TG tag is a good way to do it. Many players who love it here choose not to sport the tag in their playername, and that's fine, too, if that's what you prefer. The option is there for you to take or leave.

    We love it when people support this community with Supporting Memberships, but it's not required to wear the TG tag.

    I just want to re-iterate that by wearing the TG tag you are representing TG and our style of play. Wearing the TG tag means you have read and understand our rules, SOPs & announcements."



    How to add the tag:

    1) Open this file (in notepad, e.g.):

    C:\Documents and Settings\*you*\My Documents\Battlefield 2\Profiles\Global.con


    2) Edit the second line to look like this:

    GlobalSettings.setNamePrefix "|TG|"


    note: it's the pipe symbol, not the square brackets: |TG| ... [TG]

    Re: Wearing the |TG| tag

    Also, please note that people you see wearing augmented TG tags, such as |TG-6th| and |TG-Irr| are members of In-House Squads.

    These squads are not a free for all and you have to be a member to wear the tags. All of the In-House Squads with the exception of the Irregulars require you to be a supporting member and either apply for admission or be recruited. The Irregulars require an admission process and you can learn all about them in their forum, located at the bottom of the "Battlefield 2" forums here.

    As posted above, if you are not a member of an In-House Squad but still wish to wear the TG tag, the standard |TG| is the way to go.

    Cheers,

    Re: Wearing the |TG| tag

    Unfortunately, tags such as |TG-irr| or |TG-6th|, contain too many characters for a prefix and cannot be entered. Typing |TG-irr| in the folder mentioned by Whiskey above, will show as the full prefix but in-game will show as |TG-ir. You may need to make a new game account to show the tags.

    That's too bad. At least you don't have to worry about losing any accumulated stats in PR.

    Not that it would matter, as here, only the way you play matters.

    Re: Wearing the |TG| tag

    I'm putting on the tag now. I am just wondering, do I need a mic or something to wear this, because at this moment, I don't have a mic.

    It helps to have a microphone, but it's not a requirement.

    Re: Wearing the |TG| tag

    I think I speak for most of the veterans on the server.

    Having a Mic is not a requirement but a benefit. Having VOIP turned on however is not an option it's a requirement. You must be able to hear the SL or the Commander but it is possible to get away with typing quickly to respond.

    Not having a Mic is a hindrance when in a vehicle that requires quick communications between the Driver and the Gunner. Tanks, APCs, TOW Humvees come to mind. Also it's a bit of a hard time to type and fly a Heli or a Jet. Some can do it but it's difficult.

    Hence you find out quickly why having a Mic is a good thing and how it facilitates teamwork and quick communication.

    Here are three alternatives for you to solve your Mic issue. They are very cheap these days and vary in quality. There is not real good or bad but understand when it comes to Mics and Headsets you do get what you pay for.

    Plantronics Multimedia Stereo Headset (Music, Gaming, Voice) (Audio 350)
    I had a set of these for a bit when I needed a cheap pair for the laptop. So far they work fine. Less than $20.

    Logitech Desktop Microphone (980240-0403)
    I have used this microphone before and experienced no issues with it before giving it away to friend in need of one. Less than $15.

    Plantronics Open-Ear Full Range Stereo Gaming Headset (Audio 370)
    I have this at home for my primary headset on my primary computer. I've been using them for almost 2 years and have absolutely no issue with them. I find them very comfortable for many hours of playing online. For under $40 I highly recommend them.

    Good luck and welcome!

    Re: Wearing the |TG| tag

    Sweet! I was going to ask if I could wear the tags and be an admin. But now I guess you'll let us wear the tags to show our support of the server, not just to show importance.

    Re: Wearing the |TG| tag

    Great job on figuring things out!

    Now, the only thing left is to find out why it is that so many people ask to become an admin right after they join Tactical Gamer.

    (I know what that is like.)

    I don't think you can really "ask" to be an admin. It's most likely an invitiation-only type of thing.

    Break down the door and demand it. 'Theres a new sheriff in town darlin'
    Or not


    If you find yourself in a fair fight, then you have obviously failed to plan properly.

    To wear the standard |TG| tag, you dont have to be in an IHS. To wear the |TG-#th| or |TG-Irr| tags, you do.

    I just want to re-iterate that by wearing the TG tag you are representing TG and our style of play. Wearing the TG tag means you have read and understand our rules, SOPs & announcements.
    Based on the large influx of new players to our servers and the behavior we've seen a lot of recently, I just want to bump this and emphasize the important parts from Whiskey's post about what it means when you throw those tags on.

    Lately I've seen a lot of new faces sporting those tags. I'm not sure that those folks have even made to these forums prior to putting on the tags, but in the event that they have, I want to make some things perfectly clear.

    1. Please make sure you've read the rules for the PR server and the TG Primer (both of which are linked in my signature).

    2. Please make sure you uphold those rules and ideals when you play on our servers and elsewhere.

    3. Wearing those tags does not equate to a "Get out of jail free" card. Au contraire, mon amie - you are now held to a much, much higher standard than those that do not wear the tags.


    Let me explain: If we, the admins, catch a TG-wearing player in violation of the rules, you will be removed from the server and kept from the server until you remove the tags. You will then not be allowed to play on the server with those tags until we decide you can put them back on. This also is the case for TG tagged players who do not report violations of other players to the admins and also those who do not respond to requests for assistance from the admins.

    In other words, you must accept the responsibilities that accompany the privilege of wearing those tags. If you are not capable of handling these responsibilities, do not wear the tags. Period.
