how is black names cheating? it doesn't make the player less vulnerable a bit. maybe the name itself is harder to see, but so what.

play any space map with a dark starry sky. aim at a player far away. look at the name that appears. is it black? can you see it the name of the player? no. i guess that's the reason.

i'm not sure if this forum thread can be read if you don't have a quake live account so i'll quote two posters here:

Quote
because idiots cant be trusted to use it sparingly. you get people colouring their entire name in black, which is impossible to read at all.

Quote
you always gets some jackass wearing black/black., with a black name, which you can't read, ever, spamming grenades and camping and otherwise being a pain in the backside and spamming the console with garbage.

ID made a good call on blocking black names and skin options. Always been that way, always should be, IMO.

the way i remembered if from rtcw you could have black nicknames by duplicating the circumflex (^) and if i remember correctly 8 (or 0) was the black colour.

i tried by tyoing "^^8player" but it output a white ^before the black "player". there are players out there using black - someone must know Smiley

I haven't seen a completely black name.
The player you saw probably made the carat blue: ^4^^0CHEATER

i guess ioquake made a good hack then, because setting color black requires ^^0 or ^^8 which leaves the first character colored white. couldn't quake live come up with something of that sort Cheesy

Perhaps we should ban black names in the next release of OA? It does give an unfair advantage,
I do know how to get black names but refuse to use it or tell you how to use it.

note to everyone that i don't care that much about the coloured nicknames - i just tried to express why some people object to the black colour...

anyway... what i find interesting in this thread is that killie has a third favourite colour. i've never before, in my entire life, heard anyone ranking colours like that. my immediate question to killie is: what are your first and second best? fourth? Cheesy

I think I know why gamers hate black Cheesy:

On a technicality, Black cannot be considered a colour, as no light in the visible spectrum is reflected from a "Black" surface. It is basically the absence of all colour. This means black names are invisible and can only be perceived by considering the background behind the letters. This perception requires too much brain power which can be better spent on aiming. When a player with a black name joins a server, everyone's performance drops significantly.

Grrr! Abolish black!!!!

is this true or u just made this up, when look at a black name, i end being able correct my aim a bit faster, temporaly and your theory is like saying That in a race, when a black car comes in, other cars engines develop less power.   IT'S STUPID!!!

This is true in a way. The letters have to be very black for no visible light to be reflected and to be completely undetectable by the eye.

This perception requires too much brain power which can be better spent on aiming.
This is untrue.

This is completely false.
