    Some of these flags are interesting but I don't want to see the list of users or interrupt my game, I just want to know what country the flag represents. A simple: AlternateText="CountryName", should do the trick (ASP) or Title="CountryName" in HTML/PHP.

    Agree?

    Get Firefox
    Greasemonkey
    RHP scripts.

    DONE.

    That will fix it for me, how does that help anyone else? Besides, if I understand correctly, I'll have to build a flag/country DB.... And I'll have to put it on all my computers, etc.

    Bad solution. Not practical. Doesn't benefit to others.

    Nope. You won't.

    The same way as it would help you if you'd install Firefox, Greasemonkey and the scripts. And you or anyone else who does this will benefit in many other ways - RHP is a lot more functional with Firefox and the RHP scripts and extension.

    Good solution, practical. Join us with firefox, or wait and wait and wait and wait for something you could have in about 20 minutes.

    I've been using Firefox for years, but haven't done much with add-ons (except the Web Developer add-on). I'll look into it... see what you've got.

    I guess be sure you have the latest version of firefox, and go from there.

    Not sure it's the newest... but I've got:

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.6) Gecko/20070725 Firefox/2.0.0.6

    You can use my Greasemonkey script or you can grab my extension (add-on) that also includes this functionality and much more. All available from http://members.shaw.ca/ouroboros/RHP/

    Great idea for players with a hovercraft, and a bunch of different flags.

    Phlab thanks for posting this. It is my first time using the links and wasn't sure how to do it. This made it really simple.

    Agree. I don't want to (and can't anyway) download a bunch of new junk to the computer. I don't like Mozilla.

    It's a good idea, and the fix looks pretty simple.
