      It is a useful addition, despite any arguments you may try to raise against it. It is espesially useful when you don't know what killed you. And don't say to just turn on the death messages. They don't always say what killed you, especially if you were killed by something in the map as opposed to another player.

        I don't need it in IG which is the only thing I play so I would like to be able to turn it off...

            Actually thinking about it I think the reason they didn't use more elaborate kill messages there is because it would have had to be translated in the various languages (hence going through a bunch of different external people, probably overkill for a patch that's essentially bug fixing), whereas the translated weapon name was already available.

                    hence the topic.

                    anyway i've done some searching in the configuration files and i can edit the "You where Killed by" and even figured out the weapon name trailing it (well at least part of it when i removed the english weapon name and it was replace it with the italian one :s )

                    but still haven't found out where the "(" and ")" are noted and I am still searching for the string that points towards the item names in those config files

                    but getting there, seems like almost every messege and link is just in plain text so that makes for easy editing, you got to love XML

                    when i've figured it all out with or without your help i will make a how to topic for the people that like something diferent

                      No. I'm just tired of people making a big issue out of nothing... *sigh*

                      ...but you are right, I wasn't being constructive. Apologies.

                        Some people might actually like this, did you thought of that?
                        Thats why it should be an option in the menus. Options has always been a good thing of UT. I can play it just how I like it

                            This is a video game, how can HUD clutter be a non-issue?? Of course it matters. Especially when there's this much of it.

                            To those saying it does not affect game play, you're wrong. The message stays on your screen even after you spawn and begin fighting again. It is right there in the middle of your screen as you're already back in the game trying to aim at somebody or see what's happening.

                            Clearly the better option is the more traditional bottom left corner type thing (or anywhere but the middle of my screen for that matter), which many of us Fixed by turning them on in the ini. So these messages in the middle of my screen were not only in the way of me playing the game, they are also redundant. Not needed in the 1st place. And that was before they added more to them.

                            But anyway, the answer is obvious, just give us an option to turn them off already. Along with everything else HUD clutter related that has been requested in many threads, and the issue is solved. It's not rocket science.

                                i like it - if you see some dude got you a few times with the same weapon - I usually go after them with the same one.

                                i thinks its helpfull
