A long time ago, I’ve added a sound system to the gamer – killing spree, first blood, etc… – and imported sounds from Unreal Tournament (although you can use Quake sounds too). A lot of games feature that, but they also bring graphical announcers with those sounds.
This afternoon, I felt like being motivated to try to implement this into Teeworlds, so I did some test and came to this result:
It really looks nice when the sound is being said in the same time as the orange thingie moves! Of course, there’s still a lot of changes to be done, for instance the announcer is taking to long to disappear after the sound ends.
This was just a test with the “Prepare to Fight” sound, but I’ll easily reproduce it for all the other announcers. I’m not completely satisfied with this announcer font (did some hacks so it looks bold), so I’m searching some badass fount to replace it. Something like this:
Please comment if you have any idea or font to suggest!
