Having Chat from players in Game??

Just a quick Idea, i was thinking about EUDs, and wouldn't it be possible to read like.. Player 1's name, and then use it in a text message in game to make it seem like he is saying something???
Might be good for a comedic part of a map or something... or maybe to create difficulty in an Impossible???

You'd run out of strings.

So you cant like... convert it into a variable somehow? Like the character value into custom scores, kills, resources and what not??
Use that to type it in kinda thing?????

If you can find a way to add two strings together, that'd be awesome, but it's not possible. Try this trigger, and you might see the problem...

Display text "A"
Display text "P"
Display text "P"
Display text "L"
Display text "E"
Preserve Trigger

That pretty much sums up why a variable system won't work, unless there is a way to get the letters to print on the same line...

NudeRaider shouted: The changes are all "under the hood" main reason for 64 bit is access to more than ~3.5GB RAM. Probably not relevant to Starcraft though.
