Tooltips?

Post by Killgroup » 07 Jun 2014, 23:54

Hi there, new here, I haven't played Warzone 2100 since I was about 9, I played it on the Playstation and I always remember plugging in a second controller to use the cheats, I used to love this game as a kid.

Now, I seem to remember that when I hovered over units/buildings with my mouse pointer it used to display a tooltip showing information about that unit (the unit name, i.e. "Scavenger Trike" , only when playing it now it doesn't seem to happen. Have I remembered incorrectly, or is something not working?

Thanks,
Killgroup.

If you select a unit a blue bar appears at the top with info about the unit, like if it is an allied unit, percentage of damage, what it is called and stuff like that. I haven't played the game on the PlayStation so I am not 100% sure of what you are talking about but I have an idea, I still prefer the current.
Holocaust and Genocide, both linked to Mass Slaughter.

Hesterax,

That works only for an allied unit, should this also be working for enemy units? That's the main thing I'm trying to accomplish, thanks for your help/suggestions though. Maybe I'm getting my games crossed, I was only young after all. As an aside, did they change some of the levels? I feel like some of the earlier campaign levels (the one with the sensor tower on the hill) have been changed since the original.

That is the same info on the top of the screen, on blue bar, as on playstation1. :?
And no you cant see that for enemy, only if you right klick, to see the damage he have. :augh:

The differences you notice are more likely differences between PC and PS versions.
Campaign levels were never redesigned, and campaign scenario scripts had very few insignificant bugfix changes.
