XenThePybrois it possible to use buttons_kv to make horizontal button arrangements?

I'm unsure without testing it, but it's possible that "button_x_delta" might work. Worth a shot.

Sounds like you've set the wide and tall values to double of what they should be for the vtf.

XenThePybroIs there an easy way to make longshadows apart from layering the same text over and over itself?

Sadly, not.

@f2s4x1o purple black textures should mean the file is missing (or in a different location than you're pointing to)

@XenThePybro instead of flooding the thread, most hud editing is simply trying, see what works and learn from that ;)

STOGEHello friends,

I want to put the spectator backgrounds and control points from one HUD into another

http://imgur.com/a/7v8Oh

The bottom image backgrounds and control points into the top HUD

What do I do?

Got the cp stuff working, still need help with the tournament spec stuff though.

Just tell me the file locations and files that control them and I will be golden.

Resolved. Where are these HUD elements located?

In theory, you could use a custom font that does this, but it may not actually be an easier method - there may be a font out there that does this for you.

WeShallFallenHow does one remove these HUD elements?

General removal of a hud element can range anywhere from setting the visible and enabled fields to 0, but also changing the xpos and/or ypos of the element to a very large number (say 9999). If you can find what field youre wanting to edit, you should be set with what you're trying to accomplish

Koncept -

I was inquiring about the removal of those specific elements, so the actual field is what I'm looking for. You can probably figure out I know how to remove HUD elements in general because the default casual background is no longer there. I've edited my original post to clarify this.

I recently started to use the "Garm3n Q-M" HUD from this thread:
http://www.teamfortress.tv/33738/ive-updated-some-huds

I really like it so far, there's just one thing that I'd like to change about it-
The little heart next to the health number that seems to be completely useless (it doesn't empty as you lose health or anything).
It there any way to get rid of it that is easy enough to do for someone who has zero experience editing HUDs?

3 QUICK QUESTIONS
i hope

NUMERO UNO: Where can I edit the panel that controls the 5, 10, 15 etc. killstreak strip at the top? The vgui_tree suggests that it's the hudkillstreaknotice.res file that does this, but it doesn't seem to be able to edit this entirely.
http://imgur.com/a/nXnch

NUMERO DOS: Where can I find the file that controls the number that appears when you gain/lose metal? I'm guessing it's the same place or similar name that controls the number that shows when you gain/lose health.
http://imgur.com/a/LfXxZ

NUMERO TRES: This might be the most simple of them all, but I can't find the file that controls the manmelter crit counter. None of the huditemeffectmeter resource files seem like they would contain the info for this.
http://imgur.com/a/fW6dt

Any help would be appreciated and if anyone has semi-in-depth hud knowledge and would be happy answering regular short questions like this - if you could add me that would be so helpful and i'll probably buy you some pringles or something

Thanks in advance for any help <3

not a question

e2e8I think I have figured out the answer. The pixels in the TF2 ui are not native resolution pixels. When I added a hud element that is 100 px in size, it shows up on my screen as 250 native pixels. So the ui elements are drawn in the abstract pixels (approx 640 x 480 grid) and then scaled up to the games actual resolution. Because the scale factor for my resolution (1920x1200) is 2.5, the scaled up image does not line up with native pixels. This means that is impossible to create pixel accurate ui elements like crosshairs.

This is obvious when making a hud crosshair. There the size is specified exactly in TF2 pixels. When adding a crosshair using the multiplayer options, the scaling from TF2 pixels to native pixels is hidden from the user.

Edit: On second thought, this does not explain why the multiplayer options crosshair is still blurred even on 640x480 game resolution. The crosshair added through multiplayer options is still blurry on 640x480 resolution, but the crosshair added as a hud element is pixel perfect. So hud elements are scaled only once, up from TF2 pixels. multiplayer option crosshairs must be getting scaled multiple times. weird

i think the solution is have game res be 1280x960 and stretched if u dont like black bars

not a question

[quote=e2e8]I think I have figured out the answer. The pixels in the TF2 ui are not native resolution pixels. When I added a hud element that is 100 px in size, it shows up on my screen as 250 native pixels. So the ui elements are drawn in the abstract pixels (approx 640 x 480 grid) and then scaled up to the games actual resolution. Because the scale factor for my resolution (1920x1200) is 2.5, the scaled up image does not line up with native pixels. This means that is impossible to create pixel accurate ui elements like crosshairs.

I see that a lot of huds have quickly adapted to mym and modified the bars at the top surrounding the players when playing casual or matchmaking (https://thumbs.gfycat.com/LiquidTastyAmericanbobtail-mobile.jpg). I just want to know what file modifies the red/blu bar at the top, the gray box below it, and the white outline around that. I have already modified the transparent bar surrounding the players in hudmatchstatus, but the area surrounding the red/blu bars are really annoying.
