or we could just get the version number that is in waypoint header structure and show it along with the author's name

no, this we can't.

That version number field in the waypoint header structure is here to tell the difference between POD-Bot 2.0, 2.4 and 2.5 waypoints. The waypoint format has changed a lot since POD-bot 2.0, and the bot has the ability to convert any old waypoint format to the new one ; that's why this variable is needed.

how about raising it from centermass so its not over the visibility table reading.....which still overrides the authors name.

i think i had really asked for this because i have done so many waypoints its hard to kee track of which ones are mine.......so when i go to do a map for this new 2.6mm, i have to see whos it is.......i have well over 1000 pwf's in my default. sometimes my own waypoints get overwritten by my map installer and i need to know if i am redoing MY waypoint or not.

but really......its no big deal to wait for the visibiblty table to finish calculation.....and then changelevel again...then you definately see it

We can't display it elsewhere. We have no access to the way the client DLL displays text. When we tell it to display some text at the center of the screen, it displays it here and not elsewhere.

We can display text only at 3 locations:
- on the upper left corner (echo from the console)
- in the center of the screen
- in the player chat area

The other way to display text is to use that glowing text effect which is much more complicated to put to work.

player chat area would be good as u can display it longer...and as fancy as u want..and it won't bother people who don't want to see it
also i never see it in console so can it be displayed there too.
