I posted these on the old forum, since some players are new I will link them again.
Death Sprite download
These are not mine, I have had these since 2000. Created by Robert "aXon" Stephens

"Death Message" refers to the stuff that scrolls
up the top right corner of your screen, showing
who killed who with what. This will add death
icons to replace the skull and crossbones shown
for the more exotic deaths.

To use this addon, unzip the included files into:

YOURHARDDRIVE:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Half-Life\tfc\sprites

If you do not have SPRITES directory, create it.

General Deaths Included:

- Detpacks
 Icon looks like a detpack

- Infection Kills
 Icon is the Biohazard symbol

- Respawn Turrets and Miniturrets
 Icon looks like a turret

- Dispensers
 Looks like a dispenser

- Worldspawn (Drowning/Falling Deaths)
 Icon is an O2 symbol and an arrow pointing
 at a fixed surface

- Lasers/Beams
 Looks like the symbol off of a laser warning

- Doors/Elevators
 Picture of a door and a plat with arrows
 pointing up to make it more obvious what
 it is

- Fans
 Looks like a fan Smile

- Mortars and Tankmortars
 A little explosion lookin' thing

- User-controlled Gun Turrets
 Picture of an emplaced machine gun

- Xen Trees (those things that whip you)
 Loox like a Xen tree

TFC Death Message Sprite Empty Re: TFC Death Message Sprite

+1 for these!

These death sprites are what I use, and have done for years. An awesome improvement to seeing exactly what happened to someone without looking in console, yet does not increase your ability to play or give you any advantage. They were allowed in all leagues I played in.

I was on 1.00. You posted 1.01 (Mortar sprite fix), I'll upgrade. Very Happy

Caveat: Some customizations will get you flagged by VAC. Be careful what you download and use. If in doubt, wait until TFC is on sale for $1 again and buy it under another account, and test there. (If it's an .exe or .dll then stay away from it.)

While we're on this topic, some of the other customizations I've seen are great but some were not allowed in all leagues (as they may be considered a major advantage) are;

  • Nail sprite. (Easier to see nails flying thru the air)
  • Custom crosshairs ... including the demo pipelauncher crosshairs.
  • Flexy's texturewads ... not allowed in all leagues. Slightly different looking stone walls and floors, so the floor/walls in maps like dustbowl and 2fort look a little different.
  • OMG I almost forgot this. Grenade timer sounds. Replace the stock 'beep beep beep' with a better version.

Not so great (imo), but some people I know used them;

  • Sentry gun models.
  • Blood
  • nades.

Some models adjustments are borderline cheating in my opinion. For example, semi-transparent explosions and fire. However, in the TFC world today I don't think it's not a big deal as long as you can't see through walls (cough cough L0ki) and as long as it's cool with VAC and server rules.
