Ok, me and a bunch of other experienced people are making a new mod (can't tell you), but we can't solve this delema:

We need to be able to communicate just to your team, or to have it so something shows up just on your teams HUD. Is there anyway to do this? Or do i, with my logical brilliance, have to come up with a way around it?

well, how are you doing the team selecton? like in ctf? if yes, you could write a cog that activates a team bin, when the player snters the selection-sector. Then you could check if this bin is activated or not, and only send the message if it is...just a thought

I mean have communitcation between just the members of yoyur team in game... To "chat" with just your team, without the other reading it

I know it's easily done in MOTS, but the JK talk command doesn't have any variables, it's just send text. I'm pretty sure that the Baron's Hed RPG made a cog that you could send commands from a console that only your team could read, but I've never seen where you can just type 't' then your text, and have it go to your own teammates in JK.. MOTS, yes, JK, I don't think so.

why don't you do it my way? This will work for sure...just activate a bin when a player enters the red team, then in the talk cog, send the message only to the guys with that bin set on...or off...if you are in blue team

With JK's cog commands, that is not possible just like that.
It may be possible to tweak the command possibillities so that you can accomplish a similar effect, but without a huge imagination, it's impossible. It is possible to enter lines to write under certain circumstances and omly send them to your team, like jkConcatAsciiString(), but that means that you'll have to enter the commands in the cog itself. It is possible for the players to change these lines before the game starts.

(Like if I want to say "Hello" to just my team, I would change the line in the cog, regob it and put it into my gob folder and then play it. (No chacksum))

oh well, silly me...you're right of course...i didn't think when i wrote this. I somehow thought that there was a talk cog, dunno why, though...

you don't even need to gob anything
just put it in the folder

for mods, the order of precedence is

resource files in the mod folder
resources in the gob in the mod folder
resources in the resource folder
resources in gobs in the resource folder

at least, that's what I think
I'm not sure
