Post news RSS Custom HUD

I've customized the colour and font of the Heads Up Display (HUD)!

Posted by on

OUTDATED! There is no longer a HUD!
I have change the colour of the HUD to green and changed the number font to HISCORE. I hope you like the change. I've also hidden the Suit display becuase I'm going to disable the Suit, and I'll try to disable the limit on the sprint as well. Unlimited sprint :)
The menu music is the Puzzle song from the level 'The Shard' from Mirror's Edge. AND I've made a startup vid like the Valve one on Half Life 2. Progress :D

I don't really like the hud the numbers look bad with them really high and not near the health etc it looks terrible i would say move them down to normal positions.

What I would do is move the health to be above the number, like a superscript.

If you don't know what I mean by superscript I mean this: Tinyurl.com

You'd also need to move the actual number a little to the left.

Agreed. Its position denotes logic. Why would they position numbers like that? There is no point to it. Look at most HUDs in games. they all are logically placed.

Then I come to my opinion that this isn't that much of a HUD change. I would of hoped for something a little bit more substantial than a color and font change. It doesn't reckon a news post.

how about removing the health bar completely.....you could then show the health by reddening the screen or by some other physical signs..

Look : "Valve_Hud_HEALTH" "Health" in valve_english.txt (line 245) and don't forget to modify all valve_'language'.txt for make a correct HUD for all if you modify.

who cares about hud when you're trying to land after a hard jump ?
I think it's ok.

There is a mirrors edge Source.

BTW one of the aspects of Mirrors edge is Immersion, aka no HUD, full first person model with realistic shadows. The free running was only 1 part of a huge picture.

Also, make your own music if you do this. It will just look like a blatant cheesy Mirror's Edge ripoff if you use the same menu music and background scrolling as the original game did.

Hmmm... Black Dot Crosshair huh?... Kinda reminds me of the game "Black" on PS2! lolz.

Anyway yea, The HUD looks nice but the positioning of the Health and Ammo status looks a little weird being raised that much!

You'd think I would flame you for this, but no. I actually like this, yes shocking!

One point, remove the base panels from behind the values and move the labels closer to the numbers and you'll have a nice vector HUD.

I have an idea.
I could get rid of the HUD and just leave the quickinfo on the crosshair!
