simply put, you press a button to call up a vote-menu that will appear small at some corner of the screen;
first option: kick player, vote map
second option: which player - which map

all voting is done by typing numbers to make the vote. if there are more than 10 options, simplye make '-' and '=' (default minus and plus keyboard keys) to scroll to previous page and next page, respectively.

kinda like in CS.

Oh please yes. The current system of having to scroll through 16 names to find the name of that one hacker is EXTREMELY cumbersome.

you should be able to press f1 and then click on the persons name, then selct vote kick and stuff, but map there should be a menu

I like dascoo's idea better; what if the name is extremely long and has random characters?

October 5, 2005, 11:50 pm
or maybe you could keep the old one, just have shortcuts to it like /votekick # and /votemap *map*

uh, keron - i did say that the list of ppl will have numbers next to them to just type the numbers*

and the only reason why i don't like dascoo's idea is cuz i wanted the player to be able to just walk around and press the number-key when convenient and not have to hold F1 (meaning not to interfer too much with the game)

Just let people do either, for the best of both worlds :P

no YMM - i want that every point on the screen can be clicked to fire - i don't want any accidental clicking when i wanted to fire... - pressing mumber is good enuf

also - numbers should be allowed to be assigned as keys (so that you don't drop your gun when you wanted to type a player's number for example.

case rests

why not just do it like set team when you are admin?


then you hit f1 see t3h[CENSORED]haxx0rs number is 3

/votekick 3

If you're the admin, then you don't have to deal with vote-kicks, just /kick 'em. Easy.

Doesn't the auto-complete feature in 1.3 let you easily choose players by starting to type their name and then pressing Tab? If they have the wacked characters in the beginning, then you can use the #s.

I like the idea for assigning a shortcut to bring up a mini votekick/map change dialog box, and using the - & = keys to cycle through the choices. It should be added in the next major patch.

auto-complete? not that i know of...
