Virtualize item/weapon name tag display

Post by AFADoomer »

Display of weapon name tags, as controlled by the 'displaynametags' CVar, is hard-coded in g_game.cpp as StatusBar->AttachMessage calls in the 'slot', 'weaprev', and 'weapnext' console binds.

Additionally, the DisplayNameTag function called in the ZScript PlayerPawn InvNext and InvPrev functions to display inventory item name tags is a native function (also in g_game.cpp).

Can these be standardized and consolidated, or otherwise be set up to allow override via ZScript?

Would very much like this, as the current method I have for replacing name tags is very hacky.

If there can be a function to actually print them too, that would be so helpful as well.
