  • Kill-Messages doubled and interfering - Buffer Overflow?
    look at the left side the text.
    "Hooligan (Bounty Hunter) was just killed! [...]"
    So far everything right.
    Then 2 lines down the same message again written into the last part of the previous message.
    "(DragoHooligan (Bounty Hunter) was just killed! [...]" - it even overwrote the color-tag!!
    Seemingly the buffer for that text was overflown - or just reached the end and the terminating \0 of the String didn't fit into the buffer as well :/

    Could maybe be a serious problem causing Remote Code Execution or something else - should be checked at least!

    btw you should use dynamically allocated string classes instead of char arrays ...
