I've seen some frag videos in which, when the player switches weapons, the name of the weapon is different from what it normally is. Like the Bio-Rifle's name is "Bio" in blue letters, or the Lightining Gun is simply "LG". Also I've seen a modified message when the player killed someone... like it says "You finished *such and such*" instead of "You Killed *such and such*"
I was just wondering how this might be done...
You can change the weapon names in XWeapons.int in your UT2004/System directory. I highly recommend making a copy of it before you change it though. The bits you should be able to change are ItemName="..." and PickupMessage="..."... changing other bits could break the game. Editing the file also might not allow you to join some servers, but if you've made a copy then it's no big deal.
yeah i do that. mine says some shit like "you killed someone that sucks more then you"
