Missile Reload Colour

Postby ghalt » Fri Jul 29, 2011 11:29 pm

Is there any way to highlight the "You load your bow with a wooden arrow" message, with setcolor? I'm finding it really easy to miss in a team with 3-4 archers or so.

I think other people have requested this before as well. It would be nice, cause that message is very easy to miss in big groups. :)

While we are sorta on the same subject. Could it be considered also to get whether they miss or hit colored?

Hits and misses are colored if I recall.

Well i admit I do not have 'team fails to hit' as colored. But I do have team succeeds to hit colored and it isn't colored:( Unless it is colored somewhere else?

Ah, I see what you meant. If other people hit with their bow and arrow, and they are in your team, it is not coloured if I recall correctly.

Come to think of it, this is especially annoying when you are walking with someone in your team. If they get shot and hit by an arrow, you can't see them get hit very easily because it isn't coloured.

Excuse my initial misread.

Third person crits are now under combat option 12) All critical hits.

To highlight the missile loaded message, turn on option 307 'Your requested miracle is ready' under miracles options. Funny, but fitting, I thought.

There is no highlighting for hits or misses currently.

It would require a considerable rewrite to do that.

For now, significant hits should bleed, and misses might well be missed.

Thanks SO much for 307. I noticed it a couple days ago and did a little dance. It makes it much easier to respond quickly when you're not going to miss the prompt in a wall of same-colored text!

Stay awesome, Per.
