Hey, I have played for a little while but if these questions could be answered it would be appreciated.

1) I just download Mau'dae's Kill Tracker and have extracted it but how do I make it work in game

2) How do you make your name letter coloured

3) How do you bind messages to certain keys

Thanks alot.

KT - start it up put your name in the box just like it is in game and leave it running

start up the game and open the console by pressing shift+ ~

type /name then press enter, that "signs you in"





colors in names as follows:

Shift+6 to make this symbol ^then a number.

^1Farscape

will look like

Farscape

^1Far^4scape

will look like

Farscape


colors are

1 red
2 green
3 yelow
4 blue
5 light blue
6 purple/pink
7 white
0 black

to bind stuff open the console (shift+ ~) and type

\bind keyhere command here


example:

\bind G say ^1hello

every time you press G you will say hello


for team games the command would be:

\bind G say_team your-message-here

Thanks heaps for your assistance :)
Btw, If my in game name is in colour do I put the exact same thing into the Kill Tracker box? And if the command is greater than one word do i use brackets?

Now there's a question I have. I've known about colored names for ages, but HOW in the heck, do you get black text to appear in game?

I can change it to black, but it only appears that way in player setup, not IN-game.

Anybody know the trick?

I need some help too it seems..

Some people have flags before their names and stuff like that, how do I get my name like that?

no just type /name in the console while you are playing. you don't need to enter your name into the kill tracker if you do that.

depends.

some mods like =X= mod or JA mod allow black text but if it is base jk2 you kind of have to trick it because black names are restricted.


to get a black name in base do this in the console, not the player menu:

\name ^1^^0Kurgan

^Kurgan is what you will see when you type some text or get a kill message.

You can make the "^" any color you want, but there needs to be one before the name if you want it black.

However if you press tab it will look like this on the score board:

0Kurgan

but don't worry, kill messages and text chat still will show your name as black.
