PLayer Names

Post by Master Kenobi » Sun Jun 10, 2007 5:57 pm

Ok I had an idea for bzflag... On some big servers (AKA Missle war, hepcat, etc) The player names go all the way down until they are under the chat part, so you can't see the names that are at the bottom. I think that they should go to another column, so there is not overcrowding. I think this would be wise to put on. :shock: :D :) 8)

That problem can be resolved by reducing the score board text size....

----> GUI (Graphical User Interface)
----> Scoreboard font size

Or not showing the scoreboard, default key is 's'.

Well, only for a certain number of players...
If you had 31415 players, you'd have to have the font incredibly small for the list to not run off the screen... so small that you'd not be able to read it and may as well just hide it.

Good news! BZFlag doesn't support 31415 players, so it's not an issue. I think the most you can have is 200.

Having 200 on 1 server is unlikely, so it's doubtful that we'll ever incounter that problem :P

It does get annoying when the list of players runs all the way down past the chat box, but does that really matter? Do you honestly care about the 5yr old on the bottom of the table? :P S/he's just there to have fun!

I myself barely look at the table, occasionally when I die I'll glance at the top 4-5 people, for my own personal hunting reasons ;) But that's it really.

No, you may care about the 18 yr old teamkiller, which is per definition on the bottom. :twisted: :?

You can change the scoreboard to 'TK ratio' if it's that your worried about :)

Funny you should say that...I've seen someone at the bottom of the table, usually at badgerking's his name was "5 year old"...I wonder if he really was 5 lol...Yep, i cared about their 5-80 ratio, kept trying to give him pointers, but he kept saying "Who r u"

EDIT: Would this be her =P
