I'm trying to use two different backrounds to indicate low ammo. One backround for Ammo in reserve and ammo in clip and one for ammo no clip but even though only one is supposed to appear when I equip a low ammo pistol they both appear and overlap: example: http://imgur.com/a/Jghpc zoom in to the low ammo sorry for bad explaining

For some reason I can get the spectator health bars to show up, but not the player names like they do in the default hud. In spectator.res I've copied over the "spectator_extras" property from the new files, but I don't think that's what controls the names. Does anyone know the file or properties to play around with for this?

redd0tWandererNewbie question here.

I'm trying to put a custom image into my tf2 main menu so I prepared the vtf file (let's call it test.vtf) and put it into the materials/console folder within my hud folder. Changed the mainmenuoverride.res to draw that picture referencing it as ../console/test. When I launched it, it seems my tf2 didn't pick up the vtf andi t draws the blank image (the pink and black square thingie valve does). Do I need to change or create files so it knows to look for that vtf when it launches?
Try "replay/thumbnails/test" and place your vtf into 'materials\vgui\replay\thumbnails'. Console is usually used for Main Menu backgrounds. For "ControlName" you can use "ScalableImagePanel"...

EDIT:
Pazer is also right, just create a text file and put this in:
"UnlitGeneric"
{
	"$basetexture" "vgui/replay/thumbnails/test" // change this to the original name of your .vtf file
	"$translucent" 1
	"$alpha" 1
	"$vertexalpha" 1
	"$vertexcolor" 1
	"$no_fullbright" 1
	"$ignorez" 1
	"%keywords" "tf"
}
Once you save it, change the extension from .txt to .vmt

Thanks, that worked!

I actually pushed an update for noto that helps with this. Download the latest noto and open the resource/clientscheme.res file. Search for "NotoScoreBGMain". The value should be "24 24 24 255". Lower the last number to set the opacity. You'll need to restart the game to see any changes, however.

Am I missing a search function for this thread anywhere?

Anyways...
I'd love to learn how to fix/edit a font to make it compatible for mac. There's a couple HUDmakers out there who have managed to shift the letters down to fix the annoying letter-tops-clip bug that happens to Mac users, but they never seem to explain how they managed to do it.

This might be more of a question for a design/font design forum, but I figure I'll ask here.
Thanks in advance

spammyWhere do I edit this color when player is buffed?

check your clientscheme to see if there's something to the effect of a 'target buff' in the color declarations
if not look for 'hudhealthbonuspulse' in your scripts/hudanimations_tf.txt and you'll find something like
'animate <targethp> fgcolor "R G B A" linear 0.0.0.0'
change the R G B A values to whatever
-
I'm trying to isolate each digit of the server timelimit text label, i.e. 4 separate CExLabels with "%servertimeleft%" representing '1' '2' : '3' '4'
I can get the first digit, but the proceeding three are impossible to isolate
can I put them inside some wrapper that'll let me change the wide/xpos values without cutting off the text before I get to the digit I need, like changing the wide value in hudlayout would? is it even possible to cut off the digit that precedes it? im not super familiar with hud lua

You can turn them off in ClientScheme.res with noto. Change the colours of NotoHealthBGBuff, NotoHealthBGBuff2, NotoHealthBGLow and NotoHealthBGLow2 to have an opacity of 0.

Alright thanks, would I be right in thinking that making the text change color would be as simple as changing a few things in hudanimations?

Also don't take it personally, I love your hud, I just dislike the boxes.

EDIT: Theres also the low ammo box, I forgot about that. How would I switch that off and make the text change instead?

Not at all, not everyone likes boxes.

Yeah, it's simple enough to do in hudanimations, I just can't tell you what to delete because I'm on mobile.

For the ammo, it's the same deal as health. It's probably called NotoAmmoBGLow/2 in clientscheme.res. There should also be a color called NotoAmmoLow or something similar you can change from 250 250 250 255 to whatever you want, that'll change the ammo numbers.

Does anybody know how to edit the colour of the background (back pannel, whatever it is) of the News Header in MOTD. I could find it in neither ClientScheme.res nor MainMenuOverride.res?

And is there any special trick to how to get the buttons on the bottom to work? Because I checked them with like 2 different custom HUDs and most of the definitons were the same, though they still don't want to work.

EDIT:
MightyDoes anyone actually know where the meter positioning is for the Shields? I tried to use HUDDemomanCharge inside the hudlayout.res, but it doesn't do anything at all.

I really can NOT get over the fact that its in the bottom right corner.

Should be in HudDemomanPipes.res. Under ChargeMeter, change xpos and ypos.
It had no effect.

Strange. It does for me. Make sure you have "ControlName" "ContinuousProgressBar" and "fieldName" "ChargeMeter". Probably don't have to remind visible, enabled, wide and tall. Other than that, I dunno.

That did the trick. The names were off. Right now, when I try and set it to how I desire it to be, it goes way off the screen. The vgui_drawtree shows that the box/panel for huddemomanpipes.res is too small, and it'll get cut off even if I move it an inch up. How do I enlargen it?

qq is this like, an impossible thing to fix?
