Hi!

Shortly.
Idea:
Recording the beacons. So we could see what was pinged in the game.

Re: Official KaM Remake Ideas topic

If somebody copy a link into the chat of the lobby, could that link transform an openable link


I've implemented text selecting from Memo's and Edit's (f.e. from chat/map description etc.), so you could easily copy/paste anything from there, including links. We discussed 'open extrenal links' feature and think it could be unsafe, or used not in a proper way. Copy-paste feature is good enought.

Recording the beacons. So we could see what was pinged in the game.

Sounds good for me.
Have just checked the code - all beacons are already recorded, so we block its visualisation when replaying the game. Probably it was done to avoid too many beacons while replaing, making replay looks better, 'cleaner'.

As a solution - we can add some checkbox to show them while replaing.

@Krom what do you think ?

Re: Official KaM Remake Ideas topic

What about a simple option in a menu or a key combination?

Key combination is possible, but AFAIK @Krom is not in favor of too many hotkeys. But for me its ok.

Simple option can be smth like that, fast sketch:

IMO there's no need to clutter the UI/hotkeys with that. Just record and always show the beacons would be fine.

I thought something like this alo. Enable/disable. So the sound is nice. Good to see who had the beacons in a battle etc... But sometime good if possible to disable because somebody just overused the beacon...etc.

Yes, beacon spam is a thing. Now imagine both teams doing it during a battle?
But who knows, maybe it's not that bad. It can be tested without button/keys and you can always decide later if it's necessary or not.
