  • [request] kill notifications

    Would it be possible to get chat notifications when a marine is killed by aliens? Was trying to get this working for a modified IRC reporter but the lack of Controller's being provided to NotifyKilled makes it kinda hard to figure out who or what killed whom

    - Wolfe was killed by an Alien Soldier
    - Wildcat was killed by a Parasite
    - Crash was killed by a Behemoth

    : "Why did you guys all die?"

        Does that mean it shouldn't say "Wildcat was killed by a Parasite" ?




        I was going for the irony that Faith, the medic, isn't keeping tabs on her team's health.

          WildCat explodes in a bloody mess as x parasites make their lunge for freedom.

          Doesn't even have to say the killing actor, it'd stay truer to the movie/books if it didn't, just a message from the teammate before their actor dies completely saying something like "biolink terminated", something to indicate the marine character has bought the farm.

          [edit]
          The auto emote for Faith made that reference a bit hard to pick up until i read the fine print =P

              That's too complicated. Stuff like this needs to be at-a-glance.

                  can't relay screams to IRC using IRCReporter, hence a death message =P

                    MARIIIINE DOOOOOWN
                    obvious enough i think
                    but i also think that faith is the only one that yells that ...
                    so that might need looking into
                    that a random alive marine yells 'marine down' instead of just faith as long as she herself is still alive ...

                      Heh Knight ... I didn't know that sounds can be relayed to irc too.

                        Personally I'd prefer no deathmessages other than the team kills to be shown.

                        The reason behind this is immersion, I can deal with certain things up to a point and still be immersed in a game, however if you put too many non-immersive things into the game (deathmessages, killmessages, giant fireworks displays around your character when you reach 20 kills... :p) immersion starts to disappear.

                        If the team really wish to support irc reporters I suppose you could include specific log entries etc that a bot would be able to read... but would not show to the player... after all there are a lot of things the player doesn't see behind the scenes... surely this is a possibility?
