Losing his parents during the holocaust to a mad man of a doctor. You're to play as Grobuskna Vladinov, 20 years after the incident that changed his life dramatically. Grobuskna receives an unknown phone call that'll start a journey that'll twist your mind...
Since the original screen overlay in HL2 wasn't good for this mod I remade my own screen-overlay entity. This entity let's you select all the different notes and opens the note just like in the old overlay but difference is that here you have a dynamic note which is not affected by the resolution of the background. Whenever I'd use the old overlay it would stretch everything and it would make the note look ugly. So here I have a background which is stretched and a separate image for the note itself so that I can retain the resolution. Also the image changes dynamically depending on the selected note. And it also has a glow effect so you'll notice the notes around in the mod.
Another issue with the previous overlay from HL2 was the closing part, if you wanted to disable the overlay again you'd need to use a ui editor to monitor what buttons you clicked and sometimes it would bug up not removing the overlay. In this new overlay there is an invisible button covering your screens resolution so wherever you click on the screen will disable the overlay.
If you have any recommendations please tell me,
I'm also considering to add an option for Grobuskna to read the text. Like in Amnesia some voice actor once in a while reads up the text on every note, would that be a good idea here? Subtitles will be included in that case as well. Translations will be available too in that case!
