    Dumb question..

    Is it possible to change your kill message to whatever you like?

    Lets say "You killed ThisGuy" to "You fragged ThisGuy" as such.

    Along with death messages.

    Is this a server only feature?

    You could tweak them through a mutator (UTComp and TTM both make changes to death messages), but outside of that you're going to be stuck with the defaults.

      Im completely new to forumes... Im having trouble inserting images like everyone else does along with their message... Can someone give me detailed instructions on how to do this? Also, can I use images from my computer, such as ones in my pictures folder?

        you will have to upload the pictures to a server first. Then just press the button wich says img when posting a reply. Paste the url of your picture and it should work.

          Yes you can, open the file XGame.int (UT2004\System) with a text editor and make the changes you want. It´s a simple text file. Those messages are client side and will affect only your messages. To be on the save side make a backup copy of the *.int files before you start changing thinks.

          You need to upload your pictures first. To save bandwith convert them to jpgs. I recommend www.photobucket.com as a picture host. After that you can simply copy paste the [IMG] links which photobucket.com shows under the pictures.

                  What do you mean with as the one above? The pictures of the example album? Those are only previews to make it easier to organize your images. If you link them they will be displayed in full size if you use the IMG Tag. If you use SCREENSHOT Tag they will be displayed smaller and you have to click on them to view them in full size. I think if you upload a picture which is bigger than 250 Kb it will get resized, so make sure that your pictures are smaller than 250 Kb, if you want to maintain the size.

                  IMG Tag 800*600

                      were you playing bots? or real people, if you were playing people i'm suprised nobody saw you, and that is a great spot
