chostarmanKonceptchostarmanAlso, is there a way to change my scoreboard to just in the centre of the screen instead of:
http://imgur.com/HISAIVp

inside your scoreboard.res file, alter values of things that end in "_minmode", assuming what's shown in the screenshot is the minmode scoreboard
Koncept, change the values in what way?
Im new to this whole HUD thing

You'd want them to have the same values as the non-minmode. At least, the xpos values so that it's centered, if you don't want anything else about it changed.

Or you can just ctrl+h replace-all "_minmode" to "_minmodeDisabledOrSomething" so that the minmode parts stop working and it doesn't care about them at all. Or, if it doesn't change anything else about the hud, you could even just turn off minmode in tf2's options. Those are only if you're fine with any other changes though.

just a question about HUDs. How do you customize the 'tabs' As in, for example, change the colour scheme of the developer console?

I'm using Rayshud, and i'm wondering:

-How do I modify the size and position of the health, clip/reserve ammo and combat text (above the health indicator)?
-How do I adjust the height of the scoreboard?

(sorry if its very easy to do or if someone has already asked, I know pretty much nothing about HUD editing)

Edit: Also, how do you adjust the size of the 3d player model in the bottom right corner of the screenshot?

chostarmanHow do I line up my 'Play Competitive' Label?
Here is my gamemenu in the game:
http://imgur.com/WkfzeMW

"PlayCompetitive" (I think that's the name) within mainmenuoverride.res should be the field that will allow you to change its position.

If that's not the name of it, turn cheats on with sv_cheats 1, and type vgui_drawtree 1 into your console. Check the "highlight selected" box and click a few boxes until you find "Mainmenuoverride" and from there you should see a list of all that's displayed on your screen currently

also hud_reloadscheme will not work for main menu changes. Change your mat_antialias value to see the changes that you've made

Sorry if this isn't the best worded. I don't have my hud files in front of me so I'm going purely off of what I know from memory

I'm using Rayshud, and i'm wondering:

-How do I modify the size and position of the health, clip/reserve ammo and combat text (above the health indicator)?
Jw321123So to start off:
  • you can change the location of your ammo through the "hudweaponammo" field within hudlayout.res. To change the position of your health, go to hudplayerhealth.res and the first field that's in there should be what you would alter to move your health around.
  • To change the size of your numbers, I'd suggest finding the font that's used (Cerbetica24 for example) and pick a reasonable number larger than it. Typically you won't have trouble if you just increment the number by 2 but when you get in the 30s and try to use a number like 34 and get really small text, then the entry doesn't exist. If that's the case, check your clientscheme.res file and do a search for what font was originally used and you'll find what font entries are installed. What I'd suggest is simply going with an entry that's already there (if there's only a Cerbetica36 entry then just use that). Making new entries is easy but if you're just changing the size I'd recommend just sticking with the presets
  • The damage text is controlled by huddamageaccount.res but just changing the positioning of it can be done through hudlayout.res (I believe that's the case but since I don't have my files in front of me I'm not entirely sure)
-How do I adjust the height of the scoreboard?

Height as in where it's positioned or how tall it extends up or down? Because there are two answers that I can give here

Jw321123Edit: Also, how do you adjust the size of the 3d player model in the bottom right corner of the screenshot?

I would recommend you watch this video, but watching through 25 minutes of a video for one specific part can be a waste of time. If you want to change everything I'd suggest watching the video but if you want to do something simple like make your character appear more zoomed in that's easier to answer

yeah the vgui drawtree is really helpful if you're trying to find the specific file of something but getting used to using it when you're starting out can be a bit challenging

also I'm happy to help :)

if you're asking about everything, then mainmenuoverride.res and gamemenu.res are what need to be transferred. You will also need to to change fonts within mainmenuoverride to match the ones within the hud that you're transferring the files to.

if you record a demo and play it back you can pause it at a certain point and use the vgui drawtree to find what file controls that specific thing

if this were me doing it I would just grab the field for the title from another hud's mainmenuoverride.res file and simply make it fit in. bwhud and the old yAhud are 2 huds that I know of off the top of my head that have this feature.

Hey so back when the rayshud installer used to work and you could customize shit with it I used to always have it so my ammo in clip and reserve would flash red (also in slightly different colors) and I also used a numbered healthcross that would change red when I was low health.

I've never really worked with huds before or used many different ones. Is there a way this could be easily done or does anyone know a hud out there that does something like this?

hudlayout.res, under the "CHealthAccountPanel" section. I'd recommend going into the HudHealthAccount.res file and changing the delta_lifetime value to 3 or 4 while editing, makes it easier to see the pickup number
