Troopoinstalling an old vabe hud.

what the font should look like :
http://i.imgur.com/Tch4x8a.jpg

what font appears everywhere on the hud:
http://imgur.com/syv1JJN

i doubled checked everything, the correct font is just showing up as this weird one that i don't see when i open the font file. The font file is named "Montserrat-Bold" in the hud

Fixed it, went into my computer font folder and found the "Montserrat" font, it was the one that I was getting ingame. Deleted it, font returned to normal.

#2403 Just update the inspect panel's and the classloadoutpanel's "itempanel"with the default hud versions, keeping color ,font,border, etc. changes. At the very least you need to mess with the text_xpos and related values if you don't want to change the panel wide size.

ScatterbrainIs it possible to give a 'low metal' warning by turning the metal counter red? (As happens when you're at low health/ammo)

im surprised there isn't, but to my knowledge no.

ive been trying to figure out what the valid arguments are for the testhudanim cheat command. if a list of acceptable inputs existed it'd probably open up abilities, valve could have potentially added some code for animations they never used but who knows

Where can I edit what shows up on the item drop screen? Don't have a screenshot but it's the screen where when you find an item it tells you what it is and lets you resume or go back to your backpack.

The acceptable inputs for testhudanim are any animation you find inside the hudanimations files, including ones you make yourself. All the command does is run an event, and pretty much just makes scripting become a way to perform animations, so it can't be used to do anything automatically that scripts can't do automatically (which is very little). Making the metal turn red wouldn't be possible through animations, with or without testhudanim.

Because of it being sv_cheats limited (so mostly only usable on the mainmenu), and animations only working when the thing they're animating has been loaded, there's not a whole lot you can do with it. Hudlayout.res loads on startup so you could run "sv_cheats 1;testhudanim something" in autoexec.cfg to animate some panel you find in hudlayout or something, but there's really not a whole lot you can do with that. And trying to do anything more is a lot of ifs.

I downloaded grape's version of m0rehud, but this crosshair is not found within hudlayout.res file.

What should I do?

I'm trying to make health bars appear in spectator mode my HUD, but for some reason, adding the "spectator_extras" section from the default HUD into spectator.res and spectatortournament.res doesn't make them appear. Also, my HUD apparently has the text needed for the text used for the names (SpectatorVerySmall if I'm right), yet those aren't showing up either. Are there any parts or console commands (other than tf_spec_xray_disable 0) that I'm missing?

I have a kind-of-custom hud that I wanted to use in a frag clip but my best clip has the taunt menu pop up and not disappear. How can I hide the entire taunt menu selection thing?

Things I tried are disabling and hiding every possible option in HudMenuTauntSelection.res and also hiding and disabling HudMenuTauntSelection in hudlayout.res but the best I got was this http://puu.sh/mqwWn/1356096790.png

I have also tried to move the entire panel out of view but it still makes the round timer / cap points on the bottom disappear when it shows up and it's incredibly infuriating.

I managed to hide the pictures too but the cap points and shit still disappears, any other way around it?

it has to be in the "TopleftDataPanel" panel, at least from what I've experienced.

"TopleftDataPanel"
        {
          "ControlName" "EditablePanel"

thats not an image, its a border. you need to just remove the border, set paintbackgroundtype to 1 and do an image with corner width/height 0 or do a fillcolor to whatever color that is.
