I remember having a raging debate in JO over whether this was a good idea or not. As I recall most sided on bad -- it takes too much "mystery" out of a good duel and many felt that players would start to play "chicken" if they knew that you were low on health. That is, they would simply avoid any real battle until you were vulnerable and then they would close in for the kill.

Now, if the general opinion has changed and others think this would be a good idea, I could easily implement it. It would be a server side option in the m_duels cvar. If enabled, your health and sheilds would be shown in an overlay following the way you suggest (that is, similar to cg_drawteamoverlay)

cheers,

Lee

Sorry Paladin, I gotta go against this, for all the reasons Lee mentioned.
