I'd like to make a mod that when on a players death his screen turns black (by fading from his own personal configsettings). When he respawn his screen turns to his original settings. Is this possible? If so, how can it be done? Point me in the right direction please. I don't have a clue what file to edit/redo.

There are a couple of "name change" mods (stuff like renaming the "unknown soldier" name etc. for CoD and UO (and probably for CoD2 also) maybe you should take a look there.

The changing the name back will be a bit harder though, because the server will have to keep track of the old name settings.

I didn't mean the name, I ment the entire screen fade to black so dead people can't see where the enemy is running.

I think he means when they die there screen fades black.. then comes back to normal when they respawn... dm, tdm? ... b/c when u die in cod u see your dead body... so maybe he just wants to see nothing when u die to make it more realistic? am i right?... that would make it feel more like your in the game and not watching it...

No one would play on your server if you would have a mod like that...

I doubt that's possible.. but.. you might want to check out the ctf gametype script, because when you die there you can only look through the eyes of your teammates.

And Smooth, if you don't have anything constructive to add, don't add anything. He'll have is reasons to ask for this mod, so it's non of your worries if people will want to play on his server or not.

Yes, you are absolutely right. I used to play Vietcong alot and there was an option called 'black death'. I'd like to make this on CoD2, just to make it more realistic as you mentioned. It makes it harder for the respawners to trace their killer. Respawners have to be more carefull and not running around and shooting at anything that moves. It requires more 'tactic' this way.

My goal is CTF only at the moment. Any help is appriciated [casanova]

You can set the dvar for the killcam to 0, this turns off the kill cam all together.

VietCong has a different engine to CoD2, so I'm still not sure if it's possible to create your "black death" screen.

I have no idea at all about scripting lol.. but i have an idea (no idea if u can do this?)

But when u die have it trigger your brightness in game down to 0%. Like have the brightness or something to make it darker, and eventually black.
