Improved Grenade Messages

The grenade radio messages have been altered to remove the word (RADIO) as well as displaying clearyl who threw which grenade and from where did they throw it.

"Game_radio"             "%s1 : [ %s2 ]"
"Game_radio_location"    "%s1 : %s3 [ %s2 ]"

Improved Chat Messages

Chat messages from teammates and enemies have also been improved to reduce the amount of text displayed every time an enemy or teammate sends a message.

"Cstrike_Chat_CT_Loc"      "[CT] %s1 @ %s3 :  %s2"
"Cstrike_Chat_CT"          "[CT] %s1 :  %s2"
"Cstrike_Chat_T_Loc"       "[T] %s1 @ %s3 :  %s2"
"Cstrike_Chat_T"           "[T] %s1 :  %s2"
"Cstrike_Chat_CT_Dead"     "[CT]*DEAD* %s1 :  %s2"
"Cstrike_Chat_T_Dead"      "[T]*DEAD* %s1 :  %s2"
"Cstrike_Chat_Spec"        "[Spectators] %s1 :  %s2"


At the end of the language file we will find all the available colors commented out. Each color is encoded in a special character that is display like . (Yes, you can’t see anything, but theres actually a charater there)

If we copy and paste any symbol, all the text after the symbol will take the symbol’s colour.

// - White
// - Red
// - Team color (may cause player's color dot before symbol)
// - Green
// - Light green
// - Green(money awards)
// - Light red
// - CT color
// - Light blue
// - Violet
// - Light red 2
