Hi, as a hopeful guy who has started making his own weapons skins in AOS, does anyone know how I can change the names of weapons that appear in the killfeed? IE "Edward7089 killed Someone (Spade)". Say I wanted my client to tell me I killed them with a knife. Is that possible, without advanced editing of the game's binaries and dlls?

Yes, you can edit AoSLang-EN.bin to do this. Use something like Notepad+.
Make sure your newly edited weapon names aren't longer than their default, like:
default: spade (5 char.)
modded: knife (5 char.) CORRECT
modded2: machete (7 char.) INCORRECT

Thanks mate, you're a lifesaver!

EDIT:
Sorry, I replaced them but it seems to turn all text within my game into meaningless strings of random characters. I replaced as follows (and being the cautious guy I am, I made sure they were all exactly the same length as their defaults):

Rifle = A.W.P
SMG = AKM
Shotgun=SawnOff
Spade = Knife
Grenade = M67Frag

Did you used Windows' built-in Notepad or an external program?

I used Notepad++ with its' search function. I just searched the defaults and changed them.

Sorry, it has started crashing on starttup. I'll see if I can get one....

This is an image of me dead after a lot of people were killed. As you can see, there is no killfeed and the "INSERT COIN" text is gone. When loading the game, there is no "loading" text, just the progress bar. In chat, every message is separated by the letter "g" on it's own line.

i wrote a tool for this over a year ago, it can handle all lengths because it properly rebuilds the file.
