    I would hope that a similar system be implemented for NB.

    I only said that in jest. I'm an Atheist anyway. The last thing this topic needs is to go more off the rails than it already is, and I think that's probably the most volatile of arguments out there.

    There's actually bits and pieces of code strewn around UT3 for having a Player Alias - a name for display.

    For instance, you can enable the option to enter it in the Player tab of settings in the UTGame.ini file by changing bRemoveOnPc to 0 in the following section:

    Code:
    [Alias UTUIDataProvider_MenuOption]
    OptionSet=Network
    DataStoreMarkup=<OnlinePlayerData:ProfileData.Alias>
    OptionType=UTOT_EditBox
    EditboxMaxLength=20
    bRemoveOnPS3=1
    bRemoveOnPC=0
    The UTScoreboard is hard set to use the profile name, but most of the other code supports the alias by the look of things.

    Personally i think the whole profile thing is rediculous, personally i quite like SteamIDs, which identifies you as a person no matter which computer you're on, because other than identification, why would you force someone to use the same name :X, works a treat for reserved slots and bans >:O

    So, the UTScoreboard....is hard set to allow colored names, or to prevent it? I don't speak developer.

    its hardcoded to use your UT profile name.
    Thus, no colour.

    Well, yeah, there's not much you can do about the UTScoreboard.

    For Nightblade I wrote my own from scratch, so I could do whatever.

    Yes please do, multicolored blinking names is just what Nightblade needs. While your at it, could you make a carousel and a cotton candy machine inside the entrance of DE? You know, in case we get bored.
