Why does this player have a red name?

I've been playing GTAO it was released on PS3 yet I still don't know what it means if a player's name is red. I invited all my friends to an invite only session and everyone is a white dot except one person. I thought my friend had a bounty on them so I shot them but nothing happened, my RP just increased.

Do you mean the blip on the map or the actual name in the list.

Lol yeah, as above - it refers to the player's "Mental State".

Not the name, the blip

Guys he said red name and you all went "MENTAL STATE DUHHH", maybe read the question next time? 😛 

 

-----------

 

The thing that's going on here is some chucklef*ck player that has either heard or figured out on his own that GTA uses basic HTML, it doesnt take much effort to store a username that has actual HTML in it, something like the below

<span style="color:#FF0000;">TryhardNickname</span>

In game that would just look like a normal username (TryhardNickname without all the stuff around it) but red.

 

And then theres also a simpler version of the above used inside GTA's UI text logic & i wouldn't even be remotely surprised if that could somehow be made to work with a username too, see below example:

~r~TryhardNickname

It too would just create a normal looking username in the scoreboard, but red.
 

Next time you see somebody with a colored username, look at the playerlist in the online menu, big chance you will see their actual username there (including html or basic color code)

 

--------------

 

To summarize, people with a colored nickname got that from screwing with either social club or with an ingame trainer, and you can pretty much consider then children for having it. "Look at how much of a leet haxxor i am that i can change my username color, join my discord"

Practice what you preach. Why did his RP go up? He said "everyone is a white dot except one person" - that is surely indicative of mental state? 

 

@Johnny Forelli could you clarify on what you mean please? Do you mean the player's name was red in the player list, or the blip was? 

If it was both, then it means they both cheating / using html / whatever *in addition to* mental state being higher, so I don't know how we're all wrong but you're right.

The blip, not the name. My friend's blip or the dot that locates him was red and whenever he'd get killed, someone's RP would go up.

I was having a deathmatch with him and even my RP went up.

 

It's fine, everyone else was right, his mental state was high, I looked at his stats after I left the session and his whole mental state bar was filled up, I think Trevor would have even been terrified of him.
