i'm sure people are going to ask questions about where to put the version file. here's how it should look like

"info.vdf"
{
"ui_version" "1"
}

put that file in the root of your hud where materials/resource/scripts/etc are

edit: looks like the first part in quotes can be changed to literally anything. probably should be your hud name then

In the patch notes it says "Custom HUD files must now be installed as add-ons under the tf/custom/ folder. Loose .res files extracted to the game directory will not be loaded.", how to install as add-ons?

literally above you

drshdwpuppetPeople who want your HUDs to work, I got sent a workaround temporary fix

go to your custom hud folder (so for me its tf > custom > HUD)

in a plaintext editor (preferrably not notepad) create a file called info.vdf and put this in

"HUD name" { "ui_version" "1" }

where HUD name is the name of your custom folder.

Worked for me (modified KBNHud with a few additions/subtractions)

explains it a bit better

The info.vdf fix does work, but thanks to the new dropdown menu, the buttons for MvM/Quickplay/Competitive are broken.

"play_casual", "play_competitive", and "play_mvm" are the commands you need now

Anyone know how to change the size/location of this text for the ds_record stuff? I like the idea of recording and bookmarks notifying me on my hud but I don't want it to be right in the center of the screen like this.

No, there are no dumb questions. I also replied this in my thread, by the way. I made a mistake and included the old un-updated menu. It's fixed now, and the HL2 icon is a thing everyone has now.

Is the in-game UI broken?

RainofLightmy scoreboard doesn't show player names how do I fix this?

Well, they didn't change the scoreboard in this update.. Is this an issue others are having after the update?
Make sure that "BluePlayerList" and "RedPlayerList" are set to "visible" "1" and that the "tall" and "width" values are above 0 and that "xpos" and "ypos" aren't "9999".

What do I do to make the dropdown menu thing for "find a game" work? It works when I go to default HUD, but when I go back to mine, the animation doesn't happen, even though I have no custom main menu.

I can't find any recent dumps of the default files that were changed nor do I remember where I found them in the past.
Looking for one of these https://github.com/SteamDatabase/GameTracking/commit/a183f18493a9efc8e62e69bf6cda2aacd1d26c91

Edit: found it, but with not enough stuff
This probably https://github.com/SteamDatabase/GameTracking/commit/82c9ece2827a77cc3dc79e0ebc2b9838a41392a6

There are three sections that start with MMenu_PlayList_*

Does anyone know why these two gray boxes appear?
http://i.imgur.com/xhUX496.jpg

I don't even have a mainmenuoverride.res, I asume it might be caused by my sourcessheme.res but I have no idea what to look for. :/

edit: its hard to see, but there is a second gray box around the notifications button.

The main menu consists of 2 files:

/resource/ui/mainmenuoverride.res // Where things are positioned, what things look like
/resource/gamemenu.res // Defines actions for the buttons defined in the aforementioned file

Update/remove an old GameMenu.res and there should be no/less crashes.

So, I'm wondering if any of you hud wizards have figured anything out on this.

I want my main menu to look like this

Show Content

But any time I click on the Find A Game button, (or literally anything, it seems), the Ypos of the items/store/war buttons reset, and go to this

Anyone got a clue how to prevent the dropdown menu for "quickplay" from messing this up?

I'm using flathud, which line in which file should I modify to remove the multicolored uber bar blinking when you have full uber? I want the bar to only blink between white and 1 more color as opposed to 3-4 different ones. Thanks in advance

E: nvm, found it it hudanimations
