[TLP] Faster Banners

Description
Replaces the standard Legacy/Resistance Ops count-up banner with a smaller, instantaneous message banner that allows the game to continue in the background.

Ever had a situation where multiple soldiers were hit by an AoE attack and you had to sit and watch it count up the negative scores for each one? This mod addresses that problem.

This should also work with Challenge mode, but leave a message if there are any bugs.

History:
  • 21 Oct - Fixed: Early Bird Bonuses were factored into Challenge mode popups by mistake.
  • 21 Oct - Fixed: Default string for Challenge mode was not set correctly.
  • 20 Oct - Fixed: Multi-kills would not handle Early Bird Bonuses correctly.
Known Issues:
  • Message banners get hidden when a narrative popup gets displayed (Bradford talking at you).
Compatibility/Overrides:
  • X2Action_ChallengeScoreUpdate - Replacement logic to skip the normal banner and show a message instead.

@Lux Manifestus Basically the biggest difference is that I do some additional checks to work out the label without the Early Bird Bonus. So if you score 1400 on your first kill, it'll display +400 Points and +1000 Points, instead of +400 and +1400.

As you can see, it's really very minor stuff. I don't want to turn this into some sort of sniping contest, just use whichever version of the mod you like most.

Yes, I'm currious about the differences too.

You should put the explanation of how it does things different in the description, I'm sure people who are searching for the mods would appreciate that. :)

@ExoSoul Welp, here's the thing guys. I spent a lot of time working on this and it does things slightly different that I prefer. If I had a choice between sticking with this and switching to theirs, I'd stick with mine.

Now, if the author's got a problem with it, they can come chat to me and we'll try and work something out. Until then, if people want to use my mod, great. If people prefer their mod because maybe they've done it better or more efficiently, that's also good.

@CrimsonVolcano ...Aw damn. I got ninja'd?

Is it as similar as it looks? It'd be a real shame to have to take this down.
