Big texts and killconsole alignment
« on: September 29, 2014, 06:27:04 am »



1. How to change the size of the big texts such Multi Kill, Double Kill etc? Those kind of messages are too big. I tried the FontBigSize= and FontHeightScale= without success.
2. The killconsole texts are left aligned (centered, idk) when it should be right aligned?

You might want to try changing the default font to a smaller one and twist the values, but from my experience i can tell that you will most likely end up with unreadable text. Also all the texts made by scripts (for example kici's votemap script) will be moved and deformated. Since i started playing i tried a lot of different setups and everything besides changing the default fonts will cause more harm than anything.

About the killconsole - lol it's awful anyway :B

The big text can't currently be resized. I think that you could hide them completely though by blanking those lines in the language file. As for the kill console I have no idea what's going on there, though I suppose we should right-align it.

How to blank those lines? I don't even find the Multikill, Double Kill lines :(

Hmm, apparently those texts are hard coded into the game in English. Bummer.

If they weren't hardcoded anyone could fake a serial kill ;)

1) It is Font1 in the Fonts section
2) Looks like that on the screenshot at least, please add to the bugtracker, thx

...Yeah, but it is not that easy. At least not as easy as changing a single line of text!
Changing size would be handy though.. ..Dr.Penicz knows what he talks about..


I actually never found that to be disturbing.. ..Isn't the red text transparent usually?!

I wish there was a way to hide the texts, same goes with flag texts.

I wish a "simple mode" with a reduced kill console (3/4) and chat messages (3) option in the Options tab, some big texts hidden etc...

Turn KillConsole_Length=15 to KillConsole_Length=7 in soldat.ini

Soldat 1.6.8b1 changelog:
- Added support for skipping empty console output line
This allows for a great deal of cleaning up, I will probbably post a suggested translation text when I have set it up myself

I do this for ages hahaha but I'm talking to set it by default. I think that giant killlog does not make sense...
