Ok, let me first start by saying that my memory sucks and I die alot trying to remember what weapons I have.
So with that in mind, I was wondering if someone could make a little mod that you would allow you to bind a key to a command that would pull something up on the screen (preferably something like F1 that doesn't stop movment keys) that would just list the weapon slots and the weapons in them (special stats, etc).

If there is no weapon, it could say Empty.
something simple and small would be perfect. I'm not asking for anything elaborate ... otherwise I'd suggest a new mod that creates a new HUD with the specials above each weapon slot.. I mean that could use simple abbreviations and make it simple

Also, to make things even easier, the specials could be color coded depending on if the weapon is cursed or not. So by quick glance, you would know

Im not tryin to be mean to you or anything but unless u have loaded 4 then there usually isnt much to rember and f1 brings up the score ( i look at it all the time to see how good i am doin) but about ur idea maybe if it was somthing that could tell u a dumby down version of whats on the real site that would be nice because i rember most of it but there are some things i dont rember, Like if its a + 4 protection, does it also have 40 % dm or just 40 % dm reduction. That would be pretty neat but asfor the thing to tell u what they are i just use my scroll buttom on my mouse

Of course I wasn't suggesting to replace the score on F1, I was just using that as an example. I like the opacity of it as well as you can have it up and still move (i.e. to stay alive).

I like to use the best weapon I have. Not only can I do more damage this way, but it's also helping me to be versitile and more efficient with all the weapons. For example, I'm a poor aim. Hence I tended to use weapons that let loose alot of ammo or had splash damage also. Slowly but surely, I am getting better with the other weapons (shock rifle, lightning, etc).

Perhaps it's not a good idea, but it's something that I personally would like to have. My guess is it would also help other noobies

As far as using the scroll button on the mouse... I do that also now. But I've also died many times because I was checking my weapons to see what I had. How many times have you gone through several waves then found that Inf Mini +5 you had and didn't even know. This is what I'm trying to avoid.

Currently, when I spawn, I hit the ESC key and it will list everything you got (because in essence, you are picking them all up, so console shows that). This is a pain farther along in a wave, because of all the console messages. Even though pageup and pagedown scroll the console, it's quite cumbersome in the heat of battle.

I c what u mean , nice typin to. I need to start usin captials and ,. and stuff. To make me sound smart hehe. I tried to check site to see if u have loaded but ur not up there yet, so do u got loaded it helps alot. when u spawn u spwan with all basic weapons bio shock mini link rocket lightin gun and flak, it helps alot so in that 10 second period u can look to see what u have b4 wave starts. But dont feel bad on aimin I am terriable with my aim, my aim is as good as my spellin.
