thrones_bearnautI found this outdated hud and liked it. Had to delete mainmenuoverride.res and gamemenu.res to get it to work but the round timer and win panel are missing and have no idea how to fix that. I don't mind them not following the theme of the hud, I just wanna see them.
I'm sorry if this isn't exactly a type of question for a short answer but I don't know where else I can ask this.

how do I make a vtf that is affected by src_corner_height, src_corner_width, draw_corner_width and draw_corner_height like the stock vtfs are?

XenThePybrohow do I make a vtf that is affected by src_corner_height, src_corner_width, draw_corner_width and draw_corner_height like the stock vtfs are?

When you are making an ImagePanel you just add src_corner_height src_corner_width draw_corner_width and draw_corner_height at the end of it.

If you want a more customizable way to do it I recommend making an entry in borders section like this:

Show Content
classbg
{
"bordertype" "scalable_image"

"image" "replay/thumbnails/materialPanel"
"color" "ClassBG"

"src_corner_height" "24" // pixels inside the image
"src_corner_width" "24"
"draw_corner_width" "8" // screen size of the corners ( and sides ), proportional
"draw_corner_height" "8"
}

It's easier since you don't need to create a new vtf every time you want to have a different color.
You just need to change the "color" entry to yours.

I made a solid white square vmt that I use for boxes but changing those values does nothing.

The square is 2x2 pixels because I dont need it to be big, maybe that is why?

Also it covers all of the space in the vtf so I dont have any transparent spaces.

Do you have any idea why I can't get those values to change?

It's not working, because of size.
You actually would better have a bigger vtf, since it's easier to scale them with wide and tall.
But you need to have ControlName "ScalableImagePanel" instead of "ImagePanel".

1. Delete MainMenuOverride
2.Go to ClientScheme.res and change the color of HealthOverhealColor to yours
3.Minmode doesn't do anything.

If you don't know how to choose the color I recommend checking second point in my post where I said how to do it.

GameMenu.res in WietHUD contains some custom commands with a #base include, comment that line out

How to change overheal numbers color in WietHUD?

Clientscheme.res has HealthNormalColor, HealthOverhealColor & HealthLowColor as colors defined you can change

Does hud minmode do anything to WietHUD?
  • Player lists in Tournament mode stack differently (pub/highlander default and 6v6 in minmode with scouts on top)
  • Payload objective reduces in size
  • MvM Wavepanel reduces size a little

I'd like to refer you to the WietHUD thread for more specific questions ;)

if the names of the fonts were changed, be sure to enter the names of the new fonts that you had recently installed into huddamageaccount.res. If you've already done this, then I'm honestly not sure what else could be going wrong

It doesn't have another layer of text.
It just has the font with "outline" "1" in it.
If you want this working you must change something in this file.

http://imgur.com/a/SAF2B

In classselection.res search for ShadeBG and change fillcolor.
0 0 0 128 is the color.
It means that's a black with transparency of 128.
If you want a solid black just change 128 to 255.
I recommend changing 0 0 0 to something like 55 55 55 also, since it will look like it has a missing texture.

Two related questions.

1) HudHealthAccount is the file responsible for the green +## health values when picking up a health pack right? A soldier picking up a medium pack would get +100 in green numbers on his HUD somewhere.

2) When I tried to edit the "delta_item_start_y" and "delta_item_end_y" there seemed to be an invisible box that would surround the default values on m0rehud black. Editing the values would result in gradual clipping of the #s until the #s just totally disappeared. What would be the way to "expand" this box so I can place the +## values elsewhere on the hud?

Can anyone explain to me why the "HudWeaponAmmo" values don't change anything after I edit them?
I am trying to move the overall location of my ammo to the center, and changing the x pos values and the wide value don't make any difference.
I am using broeslhud and I'm trying to move the ammo to the center - the way I had it before the recent MM updates came.

look for "fgcolor" or "fgcolor_override"

Change the four numbers or a word after that to a colour you like. It is in a RGBA format so the first number would be red, the second blue, third blue and fourth would be transparency. The values go from 0 (nothing) to 255 (100%)

(Apologies if this has been answered already. It's a long thread that I'm not going to look through.)

I've been trying to play around with HUD editing recently, and since I prefer raysHUD over all else, I've been editing that. Although when I try to load up the changes in TF2 with hud_reloadscheme etc, nothing changes. I do notice a "could not load resources/ui/huditemeffectmeter_action.res" after the attempt, so is that error keeping the HUD from reloading for some reason?

I did a search around on Google and it seems some other people have been having the same issue, and with different HUDs.

Any help is greatly appreciated. :)

DataBoilquestion

Depends on what you're editing.
If you are editing main menu it will not show changes when you type hud_reloadscheme.
The best option for seeing changes without restarting the game is to change antialiasing level.
Be aware that it works only for main menu, if you are editing something like backpackpanel you need to restart your game every time you want to see changes.
