Meaning of bracketed numbers in score table

Post by vocaro » Sat Nov 18, 2006 7:38 pm

Is there some documentation somewhere on what all the scores in the score table (upper-left of the screen) mean? I figured them all out except for the number in the square braces. What does that number indicate? The help pages, wiki, and forums don't seem to mention anything about it.

Also, what does the plus signs (+) next to the players' names indicate?

Thanks.

that number indicated the number of team kills the player has committed

The (+) sign means that player is registered.
the (-) sign means the callsign is registered, but password is incorrect
(or that player is having trouble with global registration)
the (@) sign means that player is a server administrator.
I'm thinking I need a better sig than this...

a @ can also mean a cop, a cop only has permission to kick and ban. NOT change variables, you can never tell if they are a cop or admin =S

No... it can be whatever the server owner sets it to be. The only thing the '@' means is that person has the ban permission. That's all it indicates.

But you do presume he can do other things. :)

Some people can have their @ hidden so as to provide cheaters with a false sense of "security".

The @ sigh doesnt have to mean he can ban... If the server owner wants it, he can make it so it can only kick, or mute. It means the player has been granted some kind of power.

Edit on June 27, 2007:

The @ sign means he has been granted SOME kind of permission from the server owner or is just added to a group (which doesn't need to have any addition privileges) that gets the @ sign. And yes, there are hidden ones to catch rule-breakers in the act. 8) :twisted:

But does the player have an @ if they cannot ban? :wink:

You are correct CBG, a player must at least have shortBan permissions to be granted an @ next to their name.

Ack, the source says you're right. :)

Somewhere along the line in 2.0, I believe it was the ban permission which indicated that. I remember having a group with shortBan only and it never indicated they were an '@'.

Bracketed numbers

Post by Smiling Bob » Fri Jan 12, 2007 12:35 am

But what are the bracketed numbers under the "Kills" column?
