#4779 HUD editing: short questions, quick answers in Customization
Scrambledcurrently my spec hud looks like this: https://gyazo.com/2eedb3068f3fe924e538174c13fa4a22
how do i get it to look like this: https://gyazo.com/05378abd4e1b1205d65589b99e951829

Wiet's casting hud contest thread has some resources on it: http://www.teamfortress.tv/32052/casting-hud-design-contest#23

Basically, make your status spec panels have a red half and a blue half. Then set it up so that on red, the blue half is offscreen, and vice versa with blue getting red offscreen.

It gets more complicated from there if you want to do other things (space it from the edge with refracts, resize the health bonus cross for sideways healthbars in both directions, etc.) but that's the jist of it.

#7 My version of woolhud in Customization
ScrambledI think you guys don't realise that Woolen's HUD isn't publicly available and he refuses to release it, so if you want to use it you need to make a replica yourself. I'm willing to guess that this guy actually made this HUD.

If you check out the files it becomes pretty clear that this is still definitely a hud mod (for example, compared to 7hud's hudlayout, https://www.diffchecker.com/QHhdVAjs and most of the differences are only because woolhud is using an outdated 7hud version as its base).

It's not as blatantly bad as "hey I modded this dude's hud with a few tiny changes" but imo "I modded this hud to look like someone else's private hud mod" should definitely still go in the hud mods thread.

#17 Anyone well versed in python language? in Off Topic
>>> vulcan_count("Theodore reads his thesaurus at the theater")

I think splitting the string or using regex is the better part of valor here. Making a list of this kind of rule can get out of hand fast.

Unless I'm mistaken, Vulcan's current code (when he took out " the" which should never have been there) should be fine for that, as long as capitalization is consistent and stuff like "THE QUICK BROWN FOX" never appears as a line in the text.

I would tell a later year cs student that they absolutely should rework that to better handle edge cases, but a first year non-cs student can get away with stuff like that.

#8 Anyone well versed in python language? in Off Topic

Break the problem down into individual, manageable steps.

Show Content
For example:
- convert the entire string to uppercase or lowercase
- get a word (defined by whitespace or punctuation)
- iterate through each word
- check if it matches "the" / "THE" depending on the case you made it
- increment a counter variable

Gotchas to look out for: words like "there" or "other" that contain "the", we avoid this problem by making sure that the characters around "the" are whitespace or punctuation. A few ways to do this would be by putting every word in a list and comparing the entire string, or making sure the characters surrounding "the" are not letters, or even matching " the " || "/"the " || "'the " and so on

I don't know python (c#/java guy) but when you've figured out how you want to do it for each individual part, converting it into code shouldn't be that hard.

Some advice, it can be good to buddy up with people taking the course who know their shit. Even if you're just acquaintances, you can likely get some input from their solutions or advice on improving yours.

#3 glass mousepads in Hardware


You can always get custom acid-etched glass sheets from local glass shops, in whatever dimensions you want. Heard quotes from others that it was up to $50 for decently sized pads, though I've never done it myself. Icemat style is just a painted bottom, shouldn't be hard to diy other options to be the same way.

#8 steelseries intellimouse? in Hardware
NinlopJarateKingWhether they have the same internals as the imo 3.0 depends on the seller. The shape is the same but the shell is different (material wise mostly). It is decently old and discontinued afaik though so I don't know about current reputable sellers.i see people on websites like dhgate and aliexpress selling them as new with multiple stock, for like 40 - 50 pounds think its fake?

No clue whatsoever, but it's not an immediate red flag since it was an eastern market thing. New old stock of them would be expected, but cheap clones are too.

#13 Amby nerf isn't as bad as most think in TF2 General Discussion
MagikarpValve should've just tagged on "No random critical hits" just like how they "balance" a bunch of other weapons in the past.

Ambassador already has "no random critical hits" and always has.

And say what you want but if you look at it objectively, there are very few weapons that have "no random crits" without it making complete sense why they would. The list of weapons with neither random crits nor situational crits is extremely small, and most of them would be complete bullshit with random crits anyway. Despite what the "we can't remove random crits" pubber crowd would have you believe, valve is actually very good at using the no random crits attribute.

#6 Thoughts on new update's changes in HUD in Customization
paiCHuds will defo get destroyed. So prepare yourself to use stock hud atleast for the weekend

Assuming they make use of info.vdf, the destruction might be only on the hud dev's ends. I'm hoping they do some magic and make outdated huds work ingame and wherever they wouldn't cause issues and just disable the things that would break, but more likely is that it'll just automatically disable huds until they release updates using a higher info.vdf version.

#9 SE Config Framework // Felik's Config 3 in Customization
mastercomsBut then you can't use dxsupport_override.cfg which has some noticeable particle and sound performance improvements, especially on DX9.

If it's the sort of file you never need to edit with more stuff, it might be worthwhile putting it in a vpk with other files in a similar boat (surfaceproperties for one, or even just individual cfg modules you'd never edit such as the net quality settings).

#7 SE Config Framework // Felik's Config 3 in Customization
felikShout out to mastercoms for raising awareness of ... the ability to use configs while in the custom folder.

I would still install cfgs to the dedicated cfg folder. When the game loads any resource (and it loads tons) it has to manually check every single folder in custom if they have that file. When you have multiple folders in custom, it becomes a substantial hit to loadtime speed, even if the folders are completely empty. And it's especially bad nowadays since the game will reload all materials when you enter a server (at least as of the last time I tested) so you're going to be going through this process hundreds of times every time you enter a map.

That's why it's best to use vpk's wherever possible (only real exception is huds because fonts don't load from within vpk's + customization is easier in a folder) because they don't have this problem, but with cfg's you can ignore the issue entirely and just put them in the cfg folder.

#23 Are you happy with the pyro update changes? in TF2 General Discussion
AlexandrosUnless they're releasing a competitive update soon after this, this doesn't add up to me.

We know that they have been working on reworking mm, and according to that geel post they don't feel ready with what they have been working on, so I think it coming in a later update is a safe bet.

BRKyou didn't even edit your post you just wrote that in?

If you edit your comment within 5 minutes of posting, the "last edited" doesn't appear.

#2 Looking for 75% Keyboard with Gateron Clears in Hardware

If you're willing to go down a size, there is the magicforce 68 or the v60 available in the UK. Or go up a size and buy a gmmk tkl and get some Gateron Clears on your own.

https://www.reddit.com/r/mechmarket/ is a good bet on finding things as well.

Building yourself is always an option too (and with a kit, much easier than it sounds).
https://mechboards.co.uk/shop/all/75-diy-kit/ is an example of a 75% kit.

#5 Should I go to Uni in Off Topic
Finniganstaying in my shite city

Sounds like you already have a pretty good idea about what you (don't) want.

What exactly is it you don't like with your psychology courses, and what were you looking to get out of it? It could be that the specific subject area isn't exactly what you want and something else fits more with your interest, or it could very well just be that the quality of the courses where you're taking it isn't up to par.

#9 Cooler Master Survey in Hardware

When it says "I only purchase keyboards with mechanical switches", does that include Topre? Membrane and mem-chanical aren't things I'd buy, but a Novatouch reboot would be amazing.

Always great to see more companies communicating with us and tf2 people moving up in the world, cheers
