There is nothing to release yet, a bunch of disjointed code. Just trying things learning. Want to really build a BF like CQ mod.

Wow that is some fine work. Can't wait until you get it to a releasable state!

Looks like you're using your own minimap instead of simply reusing @FA_gps, impressive stuff there! I would however note that the killfeed shows the weapon classname instead of the display name, is that intentional?

Very nice :o

You might be able to show the image of weapon: "<img image='"+getText(configFile>>"cfgweapons">>WEAPON_CLASSNAME>>"picture")+"'/>"

Or at least the display name: getText(configFile>>"cfgweapons">>WEAPON_CLASSNAME>>"displayName")

or both ^.^

Any chance of you releasing that minimap? I'd be verry interested in using it in my missions.

Yeah, weapon classes were just placeholders. I tried images, but they point wrong way and pistol is too small and really need just a contour for that, so lots of work to make it available for every weapon. For now will just stick with displayname.

It is still work in progress, but I will be honest I've looked up some code here and there, how they've done it. You might look at Blitzkrieg mod for that.

Can I ask how you get a hold of the weapon used in a kill? Are you using currentweapon or something else?

It is tricky. I store projectile when fired associated with the weapon that fired it, then I retrieve it using projectile data from the kill.

Oh okay. That does sound complicated. I guess you are using the "fired" and "handleDamage" event handlers then?

Probably be able to use

player addMPEventHandler ["MPKilled", "hint format ['%1 was killed by %2 with a %3',name player , name player ,currentWeapon (_this select 1)]"];

Or if you want you can use a game logic to announce it.

Like so..

player addMPEventHandler ["MPKilled", " game_logic_name globalchat format ['%1 was killed by %2 with a %3',name player , name player ,currentWeapon (_this select 1)]"];

as well!

If I chucked grenade then my currentWeapon will be my primary weapon for example even though I killed you with grenade. This is why it is a bit tricky to get the right weapon.

Oi, You don't need to do it that way, you can use systemChat instead, does the same but doesn't require the use of a game logic XD
