i believe it allows you to see stuff that others cant

such as:

the names of players (like when ur spec, the names of the players show above their heads so you can see them at all times)

dyno counter (shows amount of time the dynomite has left to blow)


dunno if theres any others

then again, i dunno if thats it lol.....never used shoutcasters, but i've heard alil bit about them

Also shows landmines.

Just get on your server, and in spectator login to your shoutcaster and follow people around. You'll understand what its for then.

question......

can you be logged in shoutcaster if your playing? (being able to see everything in game)

i think this is a no, which would make sense to me, but didnt know if it was possible

You can't see all the stuff if your logged in as shoutcaster and playing...however, if you go back to spectator you are still logged into shoutcaster.

Shoutcasting
If it is enabled on the server, players with the password can use the shoutcasting feature. This is a beefed up version of spectating. Players will be able to see the names of players above their heads, see timers on dynamite, and see all landmines across the map. To use this, use the following commands:
/sclogin password
/sclogout

Normally I wouldn't say this, but RTFM!!!

Either one, it doesn't matter as long as it gets 'set' in a config that gets executed before the map change.

put this line under the // PASSWORDS & CLIENTS section "set g_shoutcastpassword "password" that will do it.
