The tracker allows you to view brief info about 'hot' fragging action going on in game, for example
Foobar is on killing spree, 10 frags in a row!
You can also move frag messages out of usual notification area (and console) and view them in a more friendly readable way in a different place.
To enable it you have to have
fragfile.dat in your
qw/ directory and have following variables set (type them into the console or into your qw config):
The text resolution setting,
/con_width must be set to at least 512.
- 0 (off) - Disable both streaks and custom frag messages
- 1 (default) - Enable brief frag info (who is on killing spree).
- 2 (custom frags) - Enable both brief frag info and custom frag messages.
You can turn off standard frag messages in console with:
/con_fragmessages 0- Only display frag messages in the tracker, remove from console/nofify
/con_fragmessages 1- Display frag messages in the tracker and also in console/notify
/con_fragmessages 2- Display frag messages in the tracker and console, but remove from notify area
Other customization can be done with these variables.
/r_tracker_messages- Changes total ammount of messages drawn in the extra window
/r_tracker_scale- Sets the font size for the messages
/r_tracker_align_right- Controls the alignment of the window
/r_tracker_y- Sets the placement of the extra frag messages window
/r_tracker_frame_color- Sets the background color in "R G B A" (red, green, blue, alpha) format.
/r_tracker_time- How long each message will stay on the screen before disappearing
/r_tracker_streaks- Controls if killing sprees should be displayed
/r_tracker_flags- Controls if actions related to the Capture The Flag mod should be displayed
The gender in killing spree messages will depend on the
/gender cvar set by the player (this also requires server support)
