  • marine info plugin

    The scoreboard on TGNS now shows which marines are carrying any of shotgun, HMG, GL, welder, mines, hand grenades, parasite (^).

    Code:
    S shotgun
    H HMG
    G GL
    w welder
    m mines
    g hand grenades
    ^ parasite
    Yes, the display has to blink. I don't know how to avoid it.

    Please provide feedback here.

    horrible as always wyz.
    actually it looks really good. however, i noticed that the parasite icon doesnt show up for approx 5-10 secs after i've been parasited (i've tried it at different intervals and it doesnt seem to work in that range), but that might just be client-side. other than that, no problems that ive seen.

        Brighten it up a touch? Or is it just me?

          Once again, you beat the ns devs at another useful plugin.

            It works wonders, however the blinking is really anoying. Is there any way to use icons instead? Sorta like another column in the leaderboard.

              The color I'm displaying is pure white (255,255,255). I can't make it any brighter than it is. :(

              Something I should have mentioned initially: if this creates performance problems for the server that can't be remedied, it will be removed. Don't get attached just yet.

                  server_frame_fake ftw.
                  It's in some code snippet on the nsmod.org forums.

                  Or you can use client_prethink/postthink for updating this, to make it more accurate.
                  (Although, I have no idea what these implementations would do for performance. It will stop the blinking though..I think.)

                    If I send it often enough to stop the blinking, clients overload and disconnect.

                    I've rewritten this plugin from the ground up. I'll be testing it tomorrow night. I'm very pleased with it.

                      If you need help with testing, I'll help if I'm able.

                      What's the info the aliens have been getting?

                        Initial testing is very good for this plugin. It changes dramatically how the information is displayed to the aliens (including res counts), but I think it will work just fine.

                        I had to change the way it displays the information because using the traditional columnar format to display so much additional and variable information made the display look like crap in several of the many, many resolutions in which people play this game. Things just didn't scale right, or they'd never align properly.

                        The new format I've used looks ... again.... it's very different, but I think it works. I'll try to show it on the server tonight, even if I can't play and have to monitor feedback remotely.

                          Wyz, it turned out incredible from what I've seen (which wasn't much to be honest) but i'll definatly start using it more as a comm. It's easyier to know who's supposed to do what, or if i should drop a PG to a parasited guy outside the hive or not, ect ect.

                          I'm developing idea's for a scoreboard that has res / info (SG/heavy) / Para / Location / health. Basically an entire popup info board for the commander.
                          Man that would be handy..
                          (any dev's reading this? *wink wink*)
                          Ambriento for comm! Vote today!

                            Suggestion: remove fade-in, fade-out for the HUDchannel messages. There really isn't a need, and forces one to keep the scoreboard open longer to see the info.
