So this was what you was testing?

07-26-2004, 06:32 AM
Good stuff Handy, looks great.

07-26-2004, 06:50 AM
Does it change the class selection?

07-26-2004, 07:03 AM
It changes the names on the class selection screen.

Nice Little changes, I like them, and I am using them ;)


07-26-2004, 09:26 AM
Yeah sexy mortars. Too bad they lack in the damage i hoped for. I hoped for something like a little more than half. Somewhat like the stg44.

07-26-2004, 09:42 AM
Is the spelling "Lieutenant" different for Brits and Americans, I know the pronounciation is.

Ohh a screenie wud be sweet:(

07-26-2004, 09:50 AM
Hm, I like the idea; I'm going to list it as Leftenant.

Uploaded: fixed problem on normal maps where when you select Technician it'll say "You will respawn as Corporal"

Added Leftenant in place of Lieutenant.

I'll take some screens.

Andy Whyberd
07-26-2004, 09:51 AM
im gonan make 1 next time i play 4 ya all!

07-26-2004, 09:58 AM
Yeah, for some reason I can't take screens of the class/team select..blah.

Andy Whyberd
07-26-2004, 10:03 AM
i think its the same spelling over here im not sure myself

07-26-2004, 10:04 AM
It is, it's just of how it's pronounced.

Andy Whyberd
07-26-2004, 10:11 AM
ah alrighty then

07-26-2004, 10:15 AM
Ok this should be the last one. I removed "Corporal" for para_grease and changed it to Technician because of some problems.

Renamed FG42 Sniper to Gefreiter. If you find bugs or anything notify me please.

I like grease monkey better but hey. I might change that myself

07-26-2004, 03:07 PM
I got it and made some further changes myself, adding the Allied classes as rank except the sniper and changing mortar to Mortar Crewman

07-26-2004, 04:53 PM
cool cool, very original

Rabid Whale
07-26-2004, 05:10 PM
I love this. :D There is one problem, though. Above the weapon image, it says "(Insert Class Name Here) Weaponry." This still retains the default Day of Defeat Class names.

07-26-2004, 06:28 PM
Technician is a rank. And I don't know about WWII, but nowadays the Canadians spell Lt as "Lieutenant", although it is pronounced "Leftenent".

07-26-2004, 08:07 PM
The Greasegun was issued commonly to technicians, crews, etc, so I used that. But one of the best things is you can still change it =\

The part where it still says their names in places - That's the image I believe, I don't use the default stuff for that, I prefer the pack jed did for all of the selection screen and text things. It's on his site www.wunderboy.org

Rabid Whale
07-26-2004, 08:13 PM
I know it's not part of the image (I've changed the images myself). The text is determined in the dod_english.txt. The tag is "wpnry_(weapon name)," and it is listed after the "cls_(weapon name)" tags.

07-26-2004, 10:39 PM
Bleh..could swear I changed that...I'll fix it.


07-26-2004, 10:43 PM

07-26-2004, 10:47 PM
Is it the font fix I got or is it that whenever I change the technician class to "Greasey" the class names dont show up anymore.

07-26-2004, 11:12 PM
I sent you a fixed version for that :x

07-26-2004, 11:13 PM
Yeah this was before i realized you were on haha.

07-27-2004, 12:30 AM
BAR Man, haha.

07-27-2004, 01:38 AM
Final copy is looking good Handy :)

Andy Whyberd
07-27-2004, 03:06 AM
i did some editing and the American's Name are the 5th Ranger Battalion and so on its quite cool tbh.

07-27-2004, 07:23 AM
Good stuff Foley.

The man who carried the BAR was indeed called the "BAR Man" He was usually the biggest, strongest motherf'er in the Squad.

..nice swear filter.

07-27-2004, 09:51 AM
Thanks for fixing that Handy. I played with the changed class names last night and enjoyed them thoroughly. I especially liked the "KIA." :D

Andy Whyberd
07-27-2004, 12:19 PM
is it possible to change what every classes info bits about like u no were it says about what the class is about sorta thing

07-27-2004, 12:37 PM
Yeah, if you look in dod_english, clos to the bottom you'll see all the descriptions, not sure if jsut changing that works, I haven't tried yet.

07-30-2004, 12:55 AM
just in case u fellas are interested


basically its a site of ranks used during ww2 and like their equivalent to other countries like a sergeant is a sergeant in u.s., england, and a blah blah in germany, blah blah if he's in the S.S.....oh whatever just look at it

07-30-2004, 08:21 PM
whats the exact folder this goes into again?

yah i did, but its all screwy, yah the ingame messages are weird now

07-30-2004, 11:15 PM
Weird? In what way?

Captain Dan
07-31-2004, 12:34 AM
Here are some more, based off Handy's

Tommy guy is now Captain
Carbine guy is Sergeant
Bar is Lance Corporal
Bren is Corporal
Greasegun is now Corporal (for the Americans).
And plus it now says stuff like "Private's Weaponry" instead of "Rifleman's weaponry" and the same goes for the rest of them.

On anzio, if your axis, and you wander into the allied spawn, it will say "you have gone into the Allied landing zone" or something like that.

When someone joins the server it says "soandso has volunteered to fight!"
When someone disconnects/leaves the server, it says "soandso has surrendered!"

If someone has been kicked it will say "soandso has been dishonorably discharged!"

for the reason it will say "you have been dishonorably discharged for treason!"

Thanks Handy! :).

There were no Lance Corporals in the US Army or USMC during WWII :x

07-31-2004, 10:57 AM
lol hes right,

oh and its weird like, when ppl join it doesnt show their name it shows like %/@ joined %/@ you know stuff like that. did i put something in th wrong place?

07-31-2004, 11:05 AM
Something I would like to see is a return to the non-rank names, like Rifleman, BAR Gunner, etc.

I can take that, sorry I just love to customize beyond defults:(

08-02-2004, 10:35 AM
Well really it's pretty easy, I mean just go inside the quotes and edit the text. Don't delete anything important looking, etc. I don't have any experience, I was just bored one night, heh.

I can send the default dod_english if anyone wants to edit it.

08-02-2004, 07:27 PM
Well damn you should get bored more often, quality stuff:cool:

08-03-2004, 03:55 AM
Heh, thanks.

God; if I put time into learning to model/code/animate/do other KITTYKITTYKITTYKITTY I could have finished TFC2.

08-03-2004, 12:45 PM
LOL funny thing I heard is its still being worked on, and that it never died:p

08-03-2004, 03:46 PM
That is funny...and mildly morbid.
