Why is it common for orgs not to release their huds? Is it fear of other orgs copying them?

The idea of making the huds private is so the hud doesn't become common and starts getting used everywhere. And some org huds are personalised for streaming and for there organization.

StevieWhy is it common for orgs not to release their huds? Is it fear of other orgs copying them?

For TFTV, it is the org's property (it DOES devalue the effort put into the stream's look, if it's released), but also it's not in game playable (i.e. we don't update the in game stuff).

If we release it for the public, that means we suddenly have an obligation to keep it updated for playing (which we don't even use it for), and also support every person who comments on the HUD's thread (see any popular HUD's thread and the number of questions they get). That would definitely get out of hand for an org who is already strained on resources (quite frankly, most HUD questions I've seen are very generic and can be answered in the short answers thread, or by searching).

As far as I know, we don't have any problem telling you what font we use in our HUD (I don't know what it is off the top of my head, I think it's Roboto from Google? I think this has literally been discussed in its own thread maybe), so I have no idea why TFLIVE can't mention it.

Our old HUD is incredibly broken and antiquated, but shoot me a PM if you're interested in taking a look at it. (also we're TFLIVE not TFTV, rip)

That's not the font, and the hud isn't being made public.

Please don't bully Wiethoofd, he's an awesome guy.

Why do people want private, spectator only HUDs anyway? They don't ever work in game and usually always need -insecure to actually work/look good. You lot are strange.

Absolutely no work goes into the hud elements that you see only when you're playing. Most notably, health and ammo. Also the TFLIVE hud gets rid of the scoreboard that lists the players altogether, so it's really not at all ready for players to play with at all.

Well it's pretty easy to just take the spec parts of the hud, change the fonts and maybe colours, then put them into any other hud.

Which is why people probably want them, seeing as they look good.

To answer some questions so there is no misinformation out there:

  • No, there won't be a download link to the TFLIVETV hud
  • Font being used is a very expensive licensed font and (name) won't be shared
  • Casting huds don't have any ingame elements for regular play coded, so it's way simpler/easier to maintain
  • Hud techniques used have made their way into other (casting) huds (#base, _manifest.txt, chat_english.txt)
  • The spectator/casting stuff I have written for all my huds works without -insecure (except plugin related hud stuff ofc)

TL;DR: If you want to enjoy the hud, tune in to casts, it won't be released

If you really need it that bad just learn to hud edit and make your own variation of it with a font of your choice in whatever HUD you use. It's been stated at least three times now by two different people that neither the HUD or the font will be made public, stop pestering them.

Maxi-Why don't all leagues use the same HUD?

>then new players won't get confused looking at new huds like all the viewmodel settings

(I'm probably biased because huds were a major appeal to me but) I don't really see it as a huge issue. Most casting huds have all the same information in the same or similar places and try to be as readable as possible--past that I don't think viewers would have any issues with huds, and definitely not different ones. New players who are straight up confused by there being huds at all wouldn't understand any hud that's not default, and default spectator hud is absolute garbage. Some games have entirely different clients for tournaments even, don't forget.

Making all leagues use the same HUD would probably get a lot of complaints though and imo is making a problem instead of solving one.

Not wanting to release the HUD is a completely legitimate choice from the designer, because they created the thing.

Refusing to share the name of the font used, which they didn't create, is ridiculous and childish.

I'm curious as to the reasoning of not releasing the fonts name? I understand 100% not distributing the hud, especially with the font licencing and all that, but I see no harm in giving the fonts name.
