//What am i on about
When using the colour skin overlay in TAM, sometimes some colours work better then others in certain maps. Sometimes a bright white is too bright and a pink is better, sometimes a light blue is better then the pink etc. these binds will simply make it a fast way of changing colour overlays without having to go and move all the sliders in the menu.
//Understanding the command
The command to change colours is below
Setskins R G B R G B R G B
R = Red, G = Green, B = Blue
The the first 3 colours, are the other team, and second 3 colours, are your team. The last 3 colours are for the other team when they have spawn protection on. If you dont use force brightskins to teammates and enemies then the first 3 colours are red team, 2nd 3 are blue team.
each colour is a number between 0 and 100, 0 means no colour, 100 means full. so like a slider bar 0 is full left, 100 is full right. so if you want Red overlay, R=100 G=0 B=0 etc.
so for Red/Blue overlays with white spawn protection the command is
Setskins 100 0 0 0 0 100 100 100 100
for Green/Yellow overlays with white spawn protection the command is
Setskins 0 100 0 100 100 0 100 100 100
My colour skins are
Cyan/Black with white spawn protection
Setskins 0 100 100 0 0 0 100 100 100
Pink/Black with white spawn protection
Setskins 100 0 100 0 0 0 100 100 100
//Creating the binds
so to create a bind for these is easy. will use the two i have.
If setting up in game, open the console and type these 2 lines
Set input P Setskins 100 0 100 0 0 0
Set input O Setskins 0 100 100 0 0 0
or if you like to edit the text files when game is off. Inside your user.ini file it would look like this (user.ini found in system folder of ut2004 directory.)
P=Setskins 100 0 100 0 0 0
O=Setskins 0 100 100 0 0 0
so now when playing, press P to get Pink/Black and O to get Cyan/Black
replace P and O for whichever key you want, i use pageup and pagedown. you could also set up an alias so 1 keypress does both and switches between the two but that's another mini tutorial
hope that's helpful, any issues, questions, let me know.
NOTE - This is a NEW TAM setting setup, these commands only work with the TAM with custom name colours. i wrote this tutorial originally for the old tam and tamextra. you can find that tutorial here http://www.tcpclan.net/phpforum/viewtopic.php?t=3835. it is very similar, the new tam add's the spawn protection overlay on the end is all, but if you use a bind from the linked thread, they will not work in the new tam.
If anyone plays on servers with utcomp, its possible to do the same thing with that, its a diff bind though. For utcomp servers i think the command is SetFriendSkinColor and SetEnemySkinColor. so SetEnemySkinColor 100 0 0 sets the enemy skisn to red i believe.
