I don't need to test my programs. I have an error-correcting modem.

UT2003 :: Actor >> Info >> ScoreBoard (Package: Engine)

This is the sort of scoreboard that appears when pressing F1. It shows game related information to the user from GameReplicationInfo and PlayerReplicationInfo.

For information on adding a DM-Morpheus-type scrolling scoreboard within a map, see ScrollingMessageTexture, and Screen for more advanced versions.

For now, see Mod Authoring/Adding A Scoreboard (it's a circle reference, I know).
