Right, I don't know if this will end up in 0.9.10 or not. We have a todo list for 0.9.10 already and I'll only put it on there if everything else gets done early. But we might as well move ahead with it now.

I need messages for the text announcer at the top of the screen.
Here are the rules.

1. Grammar must be good
2. Nothing obscene
3. Nothing from a certain invertebrate based game
4. Entertaining
5. I'll decide if you've met rules 1,2,3,4 or not.

So here goes, we need messages for all these different categories:

---------Accidentally hitting yourself----------
Example: Hog1 is bent on self destruction!

---------Inflicting below 50 damage on an enemy----------
Example: Hog1 chips away at Hog2

---------Inflicting above 50 damage on an enemy----------
Example: Hog1 teaches Hog2 who's boss!

---------Killing an enemy via damage----------
Example: Hog1 sends Hog2 to meet his maker

---------Killing an enemy via drowning----------
Example: Hog1 sends Hog2 hurtling into the deep blue

---------Killing yourself via drowning----------
Example: Hog1 fancied a swim

---------Killing an enemy with RC plane----------
Example: Hog1 is a top gun!

---------Damaging a team member----------
Example: Hog1's relationship with Hog2 has become a little rocky

---------Killing two hogs at once----------
Example: Hog1 is a two for one kind of guy!

---------Killing three hogs at once----------
Example: Hog1 gives it the old one, two, three

---------Killing four hogs at once----------
Example: The match will be over pretty quickly if Hog1 has his way

----------Killing five hogs at once----------
Example: W-what just happened?

---------Timer runs out----------
Example: Could hog1 be anymore boring?

--------------------------------------------------------

I may add more categories later, or you can suggest some.
Anyway lets fill this up.

Damn, man, that was a joke.
Here are sum suggestions. Just for practice. And, yay, grammar sux, i know that.

---------Accidentally hitting yourself----------
*) Hog 1 sould have read some manuals before pressing any triggers.
*) What's wrong with you, Hog 1? Handshake?
*) Any excuse to this fail , Hog 1?

---------Damaging a team member----------
*) Hog 1 made Hog 2 go wtf.
*) Is Hog 1 color blind?
*) Hog 1 won't be awarded for that recreant hit.
*) Hog 2 is disappointed with Hog's 1 actions.
*) Hog 1 won't get any homie love from Hog 2 anymore.

---------Killing yourself via drowning----------
*) Hog 1 grew up tired and left the battlegound. Via the bottom of the sea.
*) No one can hurt Hog 1 now. Since no weapon works underwater.
*) Spikes protect Hog 1 from being eaten. But this is no use below the waves.

"wtf" isn't good. Any word with fuck in it isn't good for a message. Children play this game too, you know.

DrDickens allegedly wrote:

Abuse to those who are really color blind. There might be people that have this disadvantage and play this game (team colors are not only blue, red, green).

UFO does.

Please keep in mind: Hedgewars is a multilanguage game.

A few word plays are ok. Heck, are needed indeed Wink Smiley

As Affect said, translations should be allowed to differ slighty from original, but not very much imo. I'd rather keep game as uniform as possible no matter what country player is from.

I reopen this topic because this will be the new feature of 0.9.12. Do you think it's possible to add announcer messages said from the hedgehogs using the speech bubbles??

True, but it has to be a funny voice or something that's usually not so funny but in the game context is...Like the commentator by Mortal Kombat. Big Grin Some high-pitched voices of the hedgehogs and suddenly a voice from Hell says something silly and funny. Wink Smiley

A couple of suggestions for the messages(not in order, sorry):

Great Idea. Are you going to do it in a big "Wrestling Announcer" type of voice?

May I request adding more voices to the Hogs themselves? They say the same thing over and over.
