Hint/Tips Message System

Post by Siraraz on 13/05/12, 06:58 am

It's sort of a new thing I have in mind to add. Every x seconds, a useful hint is displayed to all players. This is created in mind for new players because often times they don't know about it unless you tell them. Example, they don't know how to upgrade hook. As such, what type of hints should be showed?

Currently I have:


  1. The second hero you have is a shortcut to opening/closing the scoreboard. Use F2 to select it easily.
  2. Upgrade your Meat Hook ability by opening up the Choose Upgrades (hotkey: O). You can upgrade Damage, Radius, Range and Speed.
  3. Upgrade your items instead of buying multiple items.
  4. You can upgrade your items if you have a full inventory. Be warned that this may bug up if you upgrade too fast.
  5. Powerups spawn from either end of the river every 40 seconds. Kill them to gain a temporary powerful bonus.
  6. Some items may have an active ability that can be cast with the item. Such items are: Azwraith's Lance, Richochet Turbine, Earthshaker's Totem, and Techies' Explosive Barrel.
  7. The hotkeys to upgrade your hook can be remembered as O then DRAS . They stand for opening up the upgrade book, then D AMAGE, R ADIUS, R A NGE, and S PEED.
  8. Headshot occurs when two Meat Hooks hit the same target. The result is instant death for the target.
    When you die, you revive automatically in pudge level + 5 seconds.


Your thoughts? Is this idea worthwhile?

Unsup? Unsupport --> Not support?

I actually am beginning to have second thoughts. People can't read and still ask .___.

well it might be useful, but most people dont even read messages, they care for the game...
i have played many maps with tips appearing and all, and still people asking how did u do that, how to do this, etc.etc.
so if u are going to put this in the map, consider adding a command so individual players can turn off those messages

Ahh. Yeah. I agree now. I trialed out a version of v2.03 with the system implemented and still there are people who don't know how to do certain things. Yeah, I made it so you can toggle it on and off. I'll leave it in the game incase there are a few who do read. It doesn't take me much maintenance as well. Thanks for the reply Smile

I think it's a nice idea. Perhaps the first tip could say something like "Type -tips to deactivate these tips" so that players can turn them off.
