Can someone help me with this, I've had a search "Display names in game" but got no luck so can someone help me.

Basically i want a trigger for an MP game so when some walks into it it says on screen;

"[Player name] reached the area"

Is that possible?

Cheers

Not 100% but it should be like this I guess.

Hint format ["%1 is entering the zone", this select 0]

If so i got an error message.

No, you add it into the activation of the trigger covering the area where you want that message to pop up.

My mistake, use this instead:
Hint format ["%1 is entering the zone", thislist select 0] 

Also make sure to set the trigger to repeatidly or else it will only show this message once.
