Hi, just have a simple question about the 0 key that shows the team colored circles, if anyone has time to answer. You see I am colorblind, with most games I can tell the difference enough, but in tos the green and yellow(?) colored circles are exactly alike for me. On a side note, for some reason it seems like an unwritten rule that colorblind sensitive colors (for me) are always on separate teams in games, which is bad news for my team mates when friendly fire is allowed. Yea I know, I know... "I'm sorry your honor I killed all those people because I'm colorblind", bad excuse right.

Was having some serious emotional trouble with fear of attacking allies in 4 sided games before I found out that you can only target hostiles, that is cleared up, but still it means I have to engage targeting mode to determine the allegiance of any given titan, like for example when there is an airdrop or a huge battle. Is there any way I can determine what team/side a unit is on without involving color or targeting? Or perhaps a hotkey that produces list of players and their respective sides as the only one I could find only lists the players current team, though I may have missed something somewhere. It seems like I used to remember the a mid battle list showing all players in a previous version, much like the exit battle information screen. That would help because I could just identify them by jock name.

If both of those are out of the question then perhaps I can modify a few image files somewhere without much difficulty?

Listing all teams takes the fun out of missions were you don't know your enemy. Listing just the titans in sight isn't implemented. I think the easiest way is to edit images\hexmark.tga

Ah, okay thanks for pointing me to the file and the incredibly timely response considering this games age.
