for historical preservation

specifically the 2014 hud https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KpDRCs78gqE
i have very good memories of and nostalgia for watching matches that were casted using this hud

otherwise I'd like to see a remake, but despite being a hud editor in the past
i don't have the skills to fully recreate it on my own

afaik most TFTV huds were and still are never released publicly due to issues with fonts being ones you'd have to pay for to use, distributing the hud for free wouldnt be legally possible, but im sure someone that has been around longer than me knows for sure

looking at a glance it mostly looks like roboto

if someone released it privately to a hud maker they could replace all paid fonts with similar free fonts

Yeah it's pretty much all Roboto Condensed from what I remember.

I don't have legacy versions of the HUD anymore though, the only version I have is basically the same as the one still being used, so I'm not gonna release that out of respect for the casting team.

EDIT: Fonts used are Roboto Condensed Bold and Roboto Condensed Regular. Easily available online.

if we can pinpoint what font it is we can easily see the kind of license it was released under. chances are you'll be able to release a hud with licensed text files without any legal trouble. problems arise when we start taking into account usage, particularly the kind that generates income. if the hud were to be released the legal onus will befall on the users; not the creators.

professional thoughts aside; all this is moot because this is a boxes and text mod for a 15 year old cartoon video game literally nobody is going to care

I have the hud available but you will need to ask the creator to allow me to distribute it (guessing that is omnibombulator).

Otherwise if you just need spectator hud, the EssentialsTF hud is open source: https://github.com/CriticalFlaw/essentialsHUD

With enigma's blessing, here is a link to the HUD I found in my archived TF2 bits and bobs (pretty sure this is the one!):

Hey guys, I worked with CriticalFlaw, who maintains the EssentialsTF HUD, to get the legacy TFTV HUD working in today's TF2 and add some stuff that CastingEssentials (specifically CERed) supports such as banner/weapon charges, status effects and much more.

You can grab the hud here, and you'll need CastingEssentials Red to take advantage of these features which you can get here!

Also bear in mind that this hud is designed for casting/spectating and not playing, however if you're interested in a hud in this style that is suited for playing, Hypnootize has a hud you can find here.

Some issues with the winpanel I found when looking at a VOD of someone using it:

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/699990381839777792/700731499963613244/unknown.png

- winpanel #1 is stuck somewhere on top (overlaps with stopwatch timer atm)
- Team names and scores should be pinned to each other and aligned differently at the bottom (would support longer team names and higher scores)
- 'Switching Sides' halftime texts & description getting cut off

RoLcan someone update this hud for gameplay instead of casting

From my knowledge the tftv HUD was never actually built for playing, even when it was first built the playing side was broken. Perhaps later iterations had a functional play side but I don't believe omnis did at least
