Change the label display
« on: February 12, 2012, 11:36:35 PM »
To change the labels in game you need to modify the labels.lua found in the Config/view folder
This can also be used in the A-10C labels file
You can use most characters found on your keyboard if you want custom type stuff, I used the "*" for ground targets and the "|" for weapons...will probably use the "~" for air targets

labels.lua file attached below if you just want to use asterisk and drop it in the folder...Just too easy.

My changes are as follows
**Note** always make a back up before modifying your files
**Note 2** The original code is commented out...meaning the "--" is a comment line and is the original code for the parameter

**Note 3** Remember to use Notepad++ to make changes to lua files

Code: [Select]
AirFormat = {}
AirFormat[10] = "*"
AirFormat[5000] = "*" --"}%N%n%D%n%P"
AirFormat[10000] = "*" --"}%N%n%D"
AirFormat[20000] = "*" --"]%n%D"
AirFormat[30000] = "*"

GroundFormat = {}
GroundFormat[5000] = "*" --"{%N%n%D"
GroundFormat[10000] = "*" --"~%n%D"
GroundFormat[20000] = "*"

NavyFormat = {}
NavyFormat[10000] = "`" --"{%N%n%D"
NavyFormat[20000] = "`" --"~%n%D"
NavyFormat[40000] = "`"

WeaponFormat = {}
WeaponFormat[5000] = "|" --"[%N%n%D"
WeaponFormat[10000] = "|" --"|%n%D"
WeaponFormat[20000] = "|"
* Labels.lua
