face2faceis there a way to prevent the engineer building status display from being stuck on the top of the viewport while dead? i feel like im missing some simple ypos somewhere
edit to prevent double-posting:
how do i go about embedding custom .vtf files in my hud? i tried just plopping em into /materials/vgui/replay/thumbnails/ but everything i do just makes the missing texture pink checkerboard :\

Be sure to have an appropriate .vmt file of the same name in the same folder. Look at this for more info: http://huds.tf/forum/showthread.php?tid=23

Silent-DanSilent-DanOn some HUDs, for example rayshud, the fonts are sometimes cut off, for example the 2 in the health. Is there a fix for this?

This just happens sometimes with anti-aliased fonts, I don't think there's a way around it other than a different font size

Besides the vtf you also need a .vmt with it to instruct the game how the vtf can be changed/used, more info about that here: https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/Valve_Material_Type

Increase or decrease the font size by 1 or 2 and try again like Rawsor suggested.

Have you tried showschemevisualizer chatscheme yet? It has to be one of these I guess white, OffWhite, DullWhite

There is a _minmode in that section which moves things up, he's not using cl_hud_minmode 1?

it's probably not white offwhite or dullwhite because it's transparent. Also, whenever I do showschemevisualizer of anything but clientscheme my game just crashes.

I found something here:

Changed the value of DullWhite and got this as result

#base "../default_hudfiles/resource/ChatScheme.res" // Extracted default ChatScheme file

Scheme {
	Colors {
		"DullWhite"	"42 142 242 255"
	}
}

---------------------------------------

Also, whenever I do showschemevisualizer of anything but clientscheme my game just crashes.

Rename custom or hud folder and try it without any custom files except resource/chatscheme and resource/ui/basechat.res being loaded?

this creates a border with a 1 pixel thick white border, but i would like its background to be black as well. is this possible without the use of custom materials?

When you use this border for your element add the following line:

bgcolor_override Black

If it's an ImagePanel you use 'fillcolor_override' instead and if the panel doesn't want to cooperate you can always try to add 'paintbackground 1'

How do I add the player names above the health bars in spectate? I know they are present in the default HUD, and looking at the diff in the patch they were introduced is not helping me.

I think there is a font in your clientscheme.res that isn't there that is present in the default hud. I can't tell you what the exact one is at the moment.

Find/extract/download the default ClientScheme.res and find 'SpectatorVerySmall' that's the one responsible for the names above the players.

I know they are present in the default HUD, and looking at the diff in the patch they were introduced is not helping me.

You don't look at the diff of the patch they were introduced because they were added across multiple updates; you compare your clientscheme.res file to the default one to see what you're missing.

I assumed the changes I was looking would have been in one of the spectator files, not clientscheme. Thanks.

I know how that all works. I don't think I was clear enough with my question.

You know how a lot of HUDs show damage done somewhere near the health cross or the ammo numbers? I was wondering if you can apply the hud_combattext_batching command to the damage text there instead of the damage text that appears above enemies heads.
