A step in the right direction

Does anyone know if it's possible to see name tags of players while in spectator mode? Just like when spectating as a shoutcaster, you can see the names of players over their heads.

 

We are looking for a way to implement this on our server so that SPECTATORS can see names over the players playing (w/o having to be made a shoutcaster).

 

Thanks in advance!

Great suggestion.  It would be nice to have spectators automatically pickup shoucaster features without being shoutcaster.  I myself am resorting to shrubbot for this.  I had to make a logout command otherwise I cannot join a team as shoutcaster.  If anybody has a better way of implementing this please let me know.

 

[command]
command  = shout
exec     = makeshoutcaster [i]
desc     = 
syntax   =
levels   = 
 
[command]
command  = shoutout
exec     = sclogout [i]
desc     = 
syntax   =
levels   =

Thanks.  This just auto fixes the shoutcaster to limbo-team switching?  I still keep the [command] syntax in shrub?

btw do you always post at 4:20 EST?

This is based off level so admins with minimum of  level of " local ADMIN_LEVEL = 10 " will automatically be shoutcaster on the server but once you join a team limbo or not should allow you to join without having to log your self out.

 

IIRC limbo just sends commands like you would do with binds e.g team r 4 3 

 

ps to adapt to your admin levels just change the number in the lua script.

Yeah you do not need the commands, but it does not hurt to have them.

 

And at the time thing, I looked at my posts and only found 1 other one, so I don't think so. :P :rolleyes:

Just wanted to give some feedback on that lua.  It works but has its quirks such as team stacking or even trying !putteam player allies/axis.  Not something anybody notices until we're testing maps :D

We have noticed that it makes issue of quick team switching. You must go spec, then join the other team: otherwise you get the message "Shoutcasters may not join a team" - other than that, it is very useful to spectators to know who's who: and makes for better spectating.

FYI: We're having an event on our server Friday (all day) - come by and say hello.
