The Dead IRIS can change thier names while dead



]name "hes camping in the vents"
<name> has changed name to hes camping in the vents
(Hidden) w00t: Thanks!


Hidden sees this, Last IRIS is fucked.

Granted its great for those effing campers chewing away at the time while we wait, it's not entirely intended.

It'll probably be fixed, just for the Hidden's sake. (And because name spam is annoying!)

I just wish all-talk worked with text too. Not everybody has a mic, you sods!

Alltalk doesnt work for mics...does it?

it will if 'sv_alltalk 1' is set

I remember shanking a guy who was babbling on the mic and it just went silent

If the server has set alltalk, then you can use the mic to talk to living players. Otherwise, you can cut them off mid speech... always gratifying. ;)

As for the name changing, thats actually an old, old way of getting around it. Probably is a bug, but I've never seen it exploited...

Whoa, where'd that come from? Were talkin' bout the name changing-to-give-away-locations-as-a-spectator deal.

it came from the mention of vent camping?

as far as i'm aware each map is supposed to have "hidden" areas where only the hidden can get to. this would usually be vents.

i see no problem with name changing. If someone wants to talk that way, go ahead. I use it from time to time, but it gets annoying to do.
