change flag icon ingame

11-13-2007, 04:46 AM

I have a linear map with 5 flags, advanced spawn points, the flags can only be taken sequential and only 2 flags are active at a time.

I want to help the player to understand which flags are active.

I was wondering if you could change the hud icon for the flags ingame. And then mark the 2 active flags with a star or something.
Is this possible? and if so, how?

I have still not solved this one.

I have tried the AddOutput on the capture area... but the only thing I managed was to crash my map.

I have also thought about not actually changing the flag icon, but rather showing and hiding flags. But I have 5 flags, which means I need 10 flags. But DODS only support 8 flags.


What about a text message on the player screen. Is this possible? Are there other custom map using text messages?
