Changing stuff (yes, I know it's unsupported.)

I know it's unsupported, but I've seen pRu do it, so here goes.
How do I change the color/text of the "Go (Round _ of _)!"?

Create language/custom.txt in your user data directory*, with contents:

Code: Select all

language Custom
# custom language strings...
In your configs set “LANGUAGE_FIRST Custom”. This needs a recent server version, like 0.2.8.3_rc3.

* By default ~/.armagetronad on Linux, ~/Library/Application Support/Armagetron Advanced on Mac OS X, …

For earlier versions, you just edit the relevant language file directly and watch it get overwritten on your next update.

Hmmm, I was able to shelter the custom files on earlier server versions, but I don't remember how I did it.

@dlh How do I make the command in there? A better question would be, How do I make a language?

Best way to learn how to make language files is to look at the three versions of English that are there.

Which text? Usually, just search for the text in question in english_base.txt, copy the whole line over to your custom file, and edit it.

The middle one is 'config_value_changed'. The other two are apparently hardcoded. Well, the first one is. Only the RA: part of the third one is hardoded, the rest is changed with 'config_value_changed', too.

You can, but you need to edit src/engine/ePlayer.cpp, find the text, change it there, and recompile.

I've given the full path already. Relative to the root directory where you unpacked the source to, of course.
