/settaunt
« on: May 20, 2007, 11:04:56 am »
Hi,

I was thinking of a /settaunt command. It should allow you to change your taunts in-game. This could be handy on clanwars when playing on a specific map.
You could use /settaunt_1 EFC LOW! to set the first line in the active taunts file to the specified taunt. Another idea would be /settaunt_a EFC LOW! which will set the taunt for key 'a' to a specified line.

Other sugestions:
/loadtaunts taunts7 -> Loads taunts from file taunts7.txt in the Soldat folder.
/savetaunts taunts7 -> Saves the current taunts in taunts7.txt in the Soldat folder.


Grtz, DePhille

Yes, that would be a nice addition. I completely support this brilliant idea.

this is plain brilliant... DePhille, you're a genious.

Thats what we need to improve Soldat. Lots of little but important things like this
I think that it should be maping by the keys, not the lines. Would be a little confusing if you had to count those lines and numbers

DePhille, you're one of those "I wish I'd said of that" kinda guys..

You've done it gain, excellent idea. Another one of those where you wonder why it was never implmented in the first place.

Support.
I fucking miss all you cunts!

Nice idea...But being the negative creep that I am I can't stop thinking of the abuse it'll create. Think of all the personalised hate/love messages you can launch with it.. /settaunt_a Toumaz j00 g0t pwnt! ... brilliant! Alt+a,alt+a,alt+a....ad infinitum.. Handy for everything else though. Thumbs up !

I was about to suggest those myself.
Id really need this since avarax's hexer stuff needs all that spells to type, and taunts would be nice to have, but I dont want to discard my old taunts.ini
And Im too fat to move it manually.

This mean that you can have several diffrent taunts to switch between on one key?

Thanks for the nice comments and support :).

It'd be very handy for clanwars. For equinox you could add "EFC camping in the salad burger" (the salad burger is the center block with the horizontal way, looks like a salad burger :) ) and so on. Also, Avarax's hexer mod is indeed also a great example for the use of this command.

n2j3: I have to agree, there will be abuse ofcourse. But I think the abuse will be less than the gain, if you catch my drift. Also, I thought there were spam preventions. There was this period where everyone was using ASCII logos with taunts which would spam 4 lines of text. I think anti-spam system was added. If not, I'll leave it to someone else to suggest :).

Grtz, DePhille

Possibly. You could, theoretically, "/settaunt_L /loadtaunt taunt7" to switch taunt sets on the fly.

Total support.

Awesome for messages in TW regarding snipers, campers, and whatnot.
Don't say that you're Magic. Because you aren't, and I am.
All-around good with weapons that aren't long range, except in TW.
Now be careful out there, soldier.
