Does anyone know if its possible/how to change the order of the names in kill messages? Im trying to make a minimod that would change a kill messages from something like "Padawan was blasted by Dr No" to "Dr No [E-11 Blaster Rifle] Padawan" Ive already looked through the assets to no avail. Any help is appreciated :)

You have to edit the strings. They are .str files, I think...open them up with NotePad or WordPad.

I know how to change the messages, but not the order of the names. They arent in the mp_ingame string or any other string that Ive seen I need to change the order of the names because if I dont have them switched it will look like this "blah1 [E-11] blah2" when blah2 actually killed blah1. Basically, if I leave the order the same, the messages will be backwards :/

I think that part of it may be in the source code of the game. I haven't played with strings in a while, so I can't be certain.

Well it looks like it may be source or some hidden magical code. *sigh* Oh well, thanks for the help anyway

Thats in the source code indeed. I'm guessing you dont want to go there..
