    One thing that i didnt know though How can you turn off your Name and avatar so other players dont see it? Is that a cheat? or Just somthing I dont know about? 😕

    Not sure what you mean here – could you elabourate?

    I moved this from another topic to not change it. 😕

    Ok wile i was on Apoc Trying to get the “dirter” In one of the rounds his name and avatar didnt show up making it hard to see him other then the dot on the mini map.

    All the other players had there avatars and names showing above them
    but not him.

    Is this a bug or is there a way to turn it off to make it harder for people to see you ingame? 😕

    Hmmm, tried to replicate this, if you set your name to [SPACE] ie no name then the game actually names you ‘NO NAME’ so you cant do it that way, you could set ur name to ‘.’ that wouldnt show up much, but i cant get rid of just my avitar, there dosent seem to be any transparancy on the avitar gif, it seems to be ovelayed onto the game.

    What would happen if you tried to use an invalid gif.

    Surly an invalid gif wouldnt show up in the avitars list, i tried a gif that as too large but it was just ignored by the game.

    At the time his name vanished, did he happen to be under a pile of dirt?
    It may have been the name was not extended above the land and was
    hidden under the hill.

    I have only found one occurance where the player’s name and avatar
    truely dissappeared.. and that was only Using a Transparent type tank
    on Classic, and looking “thru” the crystal Eye at the opponent.

    This had the effect of showing the true tank without lables. But i have
    not seen the effect happen any other way.

    nope no dirt was even tossed at him yet 😕 it was at the beging of a round and on the first shot after i was killed i noticed. He was near some buildings a gas station and a house i think. not under them.

    Only his health and sheild power showed above him.

    No, only mod-specified target tanks are like that, player chosen
    tanks always have name.

    and I removed the smart turrets from the Death-Star map long ago.
    I diddn’t think you’d played the Scorch-Wars Mod Apache?
