Team Change Chat Notifications Don't Show Full Names After Spaces

When a player switches to a new team in-game, the chat notification that appears only shows the first word as the name. If there is a space in the name, everything after the space is excluded.

Repro

  • Insert multiple SpawnLocations.
  • Insert Teams.
  • Insert multiple Teams into the Teams folder.
  • Give each team a name with a space in the middle.
  • Set each SpawnLocation to correspond with a Team.
  • Test the game and jump from spawn to spawn. The malformed chat notifications will appear.

Repro File

I’ve created a file that matches the repro steps above. You can download it here:

You can also experience the issue by playing Speed Run 4, which has team names with spaces.


I assume this issue has existed for a while but nobody has bothered to report it because it’s obscure and just a cosmetic issue. I found the line of code that generates the message (Chat.ChatModules.TeamChat:168), but nothing about it seems problematic. I’m able to run it in the command bar with expected behavior.

In my professional opinion, ¯_(ツ)_/¯
