    Change the color!!! -.-!????

    I suggest you guys change the color of character names whenever you aim. Grey is a pretty bad color to begin with, specially if you use archetype config and no texture for clothing. Some times i feel like i'm blind, so used to red :/ ! I understand you guys changed it because we were bitching too much about Shotbot , however there are better colors than the one we are currently using.

    Re: Change the color!!! -.-!????

    It is not the color that matters, but the _pick itself.
    I recommended to Supplier that the easiest way to patch nearly all Shotbots was to remove the _pick, draw the names with transparency, and move the name around randomly.

    Most Shotbots are actually pixel bota, which shoot off a color when it appears in a certain area. So changing the color will not do anything.

    The best thing to do is 'diffuse' the pick color.
    However, this can take a couple days, and may not work like intended. Ghosthead being a prime example, it was a Shotbots with a unique color detection array.

    There are other ways, though. The names are being drawn via D3D, so we should be able to at least add a red tint to the name while keeping transparency.

    I support this, but only tinting the names. Nothing else.

    I'll take your word, only name tinting.

    La verdad ya me acostumbre a jugar sin pick- :c



    Me siento mal al ver que otros tienen todo, mientras yo que me jodo no tengo lo que creo que merezco. Pero después pienso que mientras hablo basura hay niños que comen basura y por eso a la vida agradezco.

    Si, yo tambien me acostumbre. Sin embargo el color del nombre cuando aputas es gris, se ve feo y casi ni se ve en mapas como castle.
