Hello,

I thought I'd post some additional info about the new Radar hud item, since it's now a lot more complete. Also, two new hud items, that uses the same statistics stuff as the radar is now available teamholdbar and teamholdinfo

Some features:
- Can show almost all entities, ammo, weapons and so on. You can filter these.
- Shows projectiles, rockets, shaft beam, grenades, shotgun bucks.
- Shows the areas held by the teams in the team color based on the players weight
- Highlights players with powerups.
- Highlights dead players that loses a backpack containing a rocket launcher.
- Shows the direction the players are facing.
- Fades players as they get weaker.

I've written a manual page for it's usage here:
http://ezquake.sourceforge.net/docs/?radar

And there's a test version that can be found here:
http://ezquake.sourceforge.net/test/2006-06-30_win32_gl.zip

You'll need these pictures that you put in your qw/radars folder for it to work :
http://ezquake.sourceforge.net/test/radar/dm3.png
http://ezquake.sourceforge.net/test/radar/aerowalk.png
(Note that these pictures contains a conversion formula for converting from Quake coordinates -> pixel coordaintes in the image metadata, so if you edit them in some program, make sure the metadata is preserved!)

It would be nice if some people could test this version with some more demos/configs and find errors/suggestions for improvement.

I looked into this and found the cause of the bug. It was due to some "half" ported code from zQuake. So this will be fixed for next version.

Hmm, it stayed like that for long? And do you have the demo it happens in so that I can try to reproduce it?

The radar works best for playing MVD's. But it's possible to use it with qwd's and while spectating also, but then you'll only see the entities/players closest to you.

Can it be used on mvdstreaming? Via QTV?

Well, at the moment it can't, since QTV isn't native to ezQuake yet, it only runs through a local proxy atm. But we're going to port the implementation from FTEQW, and hopefully get it working then.

Would it be possible to make the person you are spectating a bit easier to tell apart from the other players on the overhead ?

Right now I have a hard time finding where I'm at if I switch spectator view while I concentrate on looking at the radar/overhead. One suggestion would perhaps be to draw that persons name in red if you have names turned on or an extra circle around the player icon in some bright fancy color.

I also noticed that if you watch a demo recorded by yourself (qwd) the player icon will not rotate the weapon indicator according to where it's pointing, it will instead be aligned in a fixed position.

Very nice addition to the game =)

Yay! Finally some feedback, thanks biomass

I'll make it so that you can set it so that the player you're currently spectating is highlighted in some way. I can do a few different styles for that also, so that you can pick the one you like the most.

Yea I noticed that myself, but I've forgotten to fix it :s

As this radar thingie is a spectator feature i thought i'd post a little suggestion for it here. How about adding the possibility to see the exact remaining time when the major items spawns (RL, LG, Quad, Ring, Armors etc) somewhere in the game when you spectate? Would be nice and raise the awareness level for the spectators, and the commentators would have another thing to dig out some info from aswell.

on that subject, how about syncing cl_gameclock with the "[x] minutes remaining" when a spec joins late?
