WeShallFallen, modify HudFontSmall in clientscheme.res (this will have an effect on the rest of the hud, but I suppose that will be the only way to do it, since font_override doesn't seem to work)

Just attempted what you suggested, but it doesn't seem to have changed - even after replacing all instances of the default TF2 font in clientscheme.res and the pointer to resource/TF2.ttf, which is odd.

WiethoofdValve killed that when they updated the Main Menu last year with Meet your Match, you're looking at old screenshots.

Oh Thanks I was wondering.

I have kind of a weird one.
You know those two screens that pop up when you join a server and before you select team/class.
Kinda intro pages where you have to click an arrow to skip them.
Usually I can skip them by hitting enter, which is convenient, since then my hands are already on the keyboard to choose the class with keys.
But recently (I think since I switched HUD) for some reason I can't skip the second page with enter any more and have to pick up my mouse to click on the right arrow.
I know this doesn't sound like a big deal at all and it isn't, but it does get annoying after a while and I'm curious how I can fix this.

Try to figure out if the previous hud file (IntroMenu.res, MapInfoMenu.res & TextWindow(CustomServer).res) have a 'default 1' for the (MapInfo)Continue/ok buttons.

You can always add an offscreen hidden element with a LabelText which can be triggered with (for instance) 'E' to skip the dialogs.

Ok so I couldn't find a IntroMenu.res file, but I did finde MapInfoMenu and TextWindow and they both have "default 1" under the the ok section.
So maybe the problem is that the IntroMenu.res file is missing?

And if I use this offscreen hidden element with a LabelText thing, how can I choose which key it uses?
Change "labelText" "&e" to "labelText" "&enter"?

The 'default 1' should be triggered with enter (or A on controllers), the ampersand (&) only works for a single letter or number as far as I know.

How do I change the font color and size for the health portion of the targetid when I am healing someone on medic?
I use default hud and these are the only things I have in my resource/ui folder.

I was wondering if it was possible to turn your ammo counter into a bar rather than numbers.
Like the cow mangled uses a bar.
I think it's easier to instantly know how much rocks you have left when it's a bar instead of numbers.

I dont think that is possible..... the hud only makes numbers registered as %ammo% or sth. I dont know how you could possible make that into a bar

Hmm the cow mangler already has a bar so there must be onething in the HUD/game files that allows ammo to be represented as a bar. My initial thought was to just use the cow mangler weapon script and modify it but I guess it won't be that easy.

Hey m8 I had a look around for yah and found huditemeffectmeter_particlecannon in ui folder. Im assuming "particle cannon" is the cow mangler. So.....maybe copy the stuff in there into hudammoweapons.res and try editing some stuff to make that item bar replace ammo? I only came up with a theory, im also new to hud editing so cant give you instructions on how to do it.

@d4nny, mainmenu buttons/labels require GameMenu.res commands/labeltexts to be defined to work

@Booop, open spectatorguihealth and find the label with %health%, this one is being color changed using animations, found in /scripts/hudanimations (HudHealthBonusPulse/HudHealthDyingPulse) which modify colors on hurt/overheal (the 'Stop' versions of the animations reset them)

@RentQN, ammo can't be converted to bars, the cow mangler has a separate HudItemEffectMeter which is triggered, where most of the weapons use HudAmmoWeapons to display clip/reserve or ammo values

Basically you can't. Any HudItemEffectMeter needs to be set up in code for it to work, which obviously isn't the case for ammo in general. At least that's my understanding of it, never say never but some things can only go so far.

There is the circular progress meters / triuber bars, which unlike the bars do work with any number you put in. But they also always assume it's in percents / 0-100, so it only really works for half of heavy or pyro's ammo. Might be some interesting stuff you could do still but you'd basically have to design your hud around it.

If you only care about making it work for one item / ammo count, you could make a custom font for it. Though things will break pretty quickly once you start using weapons with other ammo counts.

@thrones, the huditemeffectmeter_action.res is one everyone has, because valve didn't include that hud file (it does not exist in the game files, yet is referenced somewhere when reloading)

The bg_blue image file (vtf) is referenced somewhere in a hud file (clientscheme border?), use the 'search in files' of notepad++ to search for the reference.

@d4nny, very vague what you're trying to do, if it's not a button without command it's simply a (CEx)Label where you set the labelText for, just try copying and modifying existing buttons/text labels you can find in other hud files.

It should be in ui\hudplayerhealth.res. I believe it is PlayerStatusHealthBonusImage, so turning it to enable 0 should disable it. If it does not, also move it to xpos 9999 and ypos 9999 to get it off screen.

If you're not familiar with vgui_drawtree, I suggest looking it up!

Everything selected shows up in the class loadout panel: ui\classloadoutpanel.res. The loadout presets are loadout_preset_panel and the taunt/cosmetic loadout buttons are CharacterLoadoutButton and TauntLoadoutButton respectively.

As I suggested in my first answer, if you're not familiar with vgui_drawtree, please do familiarize yourself with it as it will help you immensely.

You can edit it in ui\hudmatchstatus.res. The names should be relatively self-explanatory, but you might want to start by looking at TeamStatus.

As for offline mode (I presume you mean when playing demos), there's no way to do it, unfortunately. :(

Alright, now for a question of my own:

In ui\spectatortournament.res, I'm able to adjust the size of the player panels, but the background is automatically resized to the entire thing. Additionally, I cannot adjust the border thickness or make it completely squared off, or anything with onething like:

    "src_corner_height" "40"
    "src_corner_width"  "40"
    "draw_corner_width" "0"
    "draw_corner_height"  "0"

I tried onething like adding an element "bg" hoping it's just excluded from the files, but editing that doesn't help either. I tried looking at other HUDs that modified it, but I'm not getting anything out of it. I would disable it with "paintborder" "0" but that would mean I can't make a team-colored background since they'd all appear gray since I'm a spectator.

To summarize, I want to do two things to the playerpanels:

  1. Change the team-colored background's size independently of the entire playerpanel_kv element
  2. Change the background's shape to be squared

Anyone able to solve this issue for me? Thanks in advance!

@Teddy: use the original src_corner width and height of 23 (iirc) together with the draw_corner width/height of 0 for 'square' corners for the player background borders in the tournament spec hud (TFFatLineBorder + TFFatLineBorderRedBG + TFFatLineBorderBlueBG in ClientScheme)

It is not possible to make them less wide than the playerpanel_kv width though, however, you could try to change the 'image' value for the aforementioned border definitions with custom VTFs and possibly end up with a result that works for you (make sure to put them in the replay thumbnails folder to have it work in sv_pure 2 servers)

Hey guys, trying to do the replay textures trick. I've never done it before.

I made a new texture at \steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\materials\vgui\replay\thumbnails called health_modified as a vtf and the corresponding vmt with it.

In spectatorguihealth.res I'm trying to change the off-white gradient health bar's image to onething else. This is PlayerStatusHealthImage. I added this line:

"image_override"			"\materials\vgui\replay\thumbnails\health_modified"

and it has no effect. Taking other texture and using that (like "../hud/health_equip_bg") has no effect either.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

and it has no effect. Taking other texture and using that (like "../hud/health_equip_bg") has no effect either.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

Try "replay/thumbnails/health_modified" or "../vgui/replay/thumbnails/health_modified"

Afaik the game starts looking for textures by default in the vgui folder.

Also: image_override is not an existing thing, just replace the original value for image and see if the game loads the texture or throws the black/magenta missing texture back at you.

It's probably been answered, but is there any way to get rid of the spiny triangle/circle above points? Really irritating and never known how to remove
