        • 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.

            • Its okay I was also jesting.

              • 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.

                              Blinking names :S. You guys thought colours were bad, I think q3 shows us that things could be much worse haha
