This will remove the HUD and the crosshair, but keep the essential stuff like button prompts and the weapon wheel.
Disable hud remove hud toggle hud
I'd like to remove all HUD except a new simplified cross-hair that is only a small dot or pixel.
(I'd love a mod by you that does that, because I use most of your other mods!)
Which files in the 'UI.PAK' are you editing?
Well I don't know how to make the crosshair in to a dot, I can only remove stuff.
Here's the guide I used:
I'm editing the WEAPONSTUFF.GFX file within UI.PAK, simply by deleting stuff in the JPEXS flash decompiler.
Hello, Great mod !
Can you make another ? one that also remove the button prompts ?
And the Flashing Orange stuff ? such as collectibles and activables ?
Thank you, and again... Great Mod !
Good ideas! This kind of immersion is exactly what I'm looking for as well, I'm fed-up of games trying to hold me by the hand like a baby, giving such obvious hints. I'd rather explore and discover stuff on my own.
The flashing orange stuff can be removed by opening SELECTIONOVERLAYPARAMS.BIN in a text editor and delete the line that says m_rate.
I noticed when following Axel when entering vents it becomes a small dot, which would be PERFECT if it was the default for all weapons and aiming purposes, ...to only show up while aiming. Thanks for the info, but I'm not very good at code-work. :/
Great mod. Would love one that also disables the score/level chart for the DLC challenges.
Hey there! This is a while after the fact, I know, but I've spent a couple hours today trying to figure this out, and yours was one of the few comments I found discussing removing specifically the survival mode HUD.
I have managed to figure out how to do that, and on the off chance you or someone else might find this information useful, I'll share it here.
Firstly, download and install this mod. Then, download and use OpenCAGE (The Open Source Alien Isolation Modding tool; there are other things with the same name that come up first if you google search just the name).
Use the "Game Asset Editor" -> "UI Import/Export" (to directly access UI.PAK without having to extract and recompile it) -> drill down into the file tree and delete CHALLENGELEADERBOARDCOMPONENT.GFX and CHALLENGEMAPOVERLAY.GFX files.
The game loads fine, loads the challenge maps just fine too, and in conjunction with all the rest of the UI being removed by the mod's initial tweaks, it completely removes all hud from the challenge mode maps! One minor downside is that there's now no prompts for what you need to do in the level, and UI once you complete the map, but that's basically no issue considering anyone who wants this change likely wants it to record footage and that's it; completing the level is unneccesary.
Hopefully at least one other person finds this helpful!
