Spectator HUD
« on: October 28, 2007, 02:55:08 pm »
As you all know when you are a spectator your Hud desplays as
Full health, No weapon, Amo Bar full and jet bar full

No matter who you are locked onto why'll being a spec. your hud will never change.

My suggestion is that whoever you are locked onto it should show their exact hud. Like the amo,gun and jet they have.

Therefor your Hud should show that since your locked onto that specific player as a spectator. Instead of showing the deafult spectator hud.

This is a good idea because you know what that players' status is. How much health,amo,grenades and jet they have.


Good idea? f12!

Betatesters have allready considered this..

And what was the result of their consideration?

I'd like to see this implemented. There is some potential for abuse, though, with spying, etc, although if anyone has a problem with it, they can always remove spectators from CWs, etc.

It's implemented in the upcoming version, but only for testing. No conclusions have really been dawn so far.

And how so, about the abuse I mean?

Edited my above post. I don't think it would really be a problem, but you know how people in R/S can be. :P

Sure. If there's something to whine about they will. But spying is a potential issue either way, htis isn't really changing anything there. People will just have to accept it. Not that I think there's going to be a problem with that. They're gonna love it.

I'll support this if it an option.  Spying is a problem and I'd like it optional.

Well I know I'm gonna love it. :) BTW, will it be included in demo playback, or just realtime spectating?

I'd prefer an option to turn the whole interface off when you're spectating.

I heard you're able to change it on and off at the server settings. And it's realtime spectating, since you're able to demo it anyway..

But are you able to see your mates health and gun status on respawn (on normal games) and while waiting for the next round (on survival)?

yes but with this rule:

when playing on any type of team, you die, and spec someone while waiting to respawn, you can only view your team mates health in real time, viewing other team heath appears as it does now.

when in spectator team, its real time for all players

F12, but then they should add the option that other othe team players cant see that of people on the other team, it would give away way too much info(I think)

i don't understand you guys are saying if your spec. you should only be able to see only your teamates hud? is that it because if so, when spec. you don't have a teamate. You can view everyone. No one is your teamate or opponent

Actually what i think your saying. if your not this is a suggestion...
Seeing your teamates hud will your in a respawn time. is that what your saying?

bla, bla, bla...

Get it? When you're a spectator, you'll be able to see everyone and their weapon, health and jet status.
Whwn in any other team, alpha, bravo, charlie or delta, you'll only be able to see the status' of people on the same team.

I think it's a good idea to be informed about the players' status.
But I also think its a bad idea because it would be way too easy to help other players in the game..

F11+F12 bash, see what happens.

The issue of players helping other players is allready at hand, Xaero. It will be just as much of a problem with this thing enabled as it has been without it - no more, no less.
