Hey there. Fellow cast producer here!
TheManWithNoNameis there any chance at moving the medigun's in use + percentage lead in between the two team's player information instead of at the top? makes it easier to read/see imho
Check out the HUD I did for eXtv's cast on this Highlander match. The Medic's über HUD elemeents are in the middle.
Here's a closer screenshot:
dashnerYes, absolutely. Will make the adjustment to the HUD tonight.
lols beat you to it weeks ago, nerd.
joejoe347I'm still not sure the current score board looks right with the rest of the HUD. It fits with the other custom stuff you had going on, but once you get into the the actual game it doesn't seem to fit with the TF2 Hud. It just looked slapped on top, because nothing else on the screen is like it.
That's because it is "slapped" on top, silly. Dashner uses video loops with an alpha channel so that it's transparent, but I get what you're saying. I think the transitions and the scoreboard look really slick and all, but it feels like the graphics look like they're more for TSN Hockey or ESPN Football rather than Team Fortress 2. They don't fit TF2's style. But hey, I'm not complaining either. Not like many other people are doing custom stuff.
Oh wait, I am!
I've been working on a TF2
XSplit casting plug-in this past month. Here is me showcasing two features: a scoreboard and roster which will fade in/out with the "J" and "K" keys. The scoreboard can be incremented for the Home (left) and Away (right) teams with the "[" and "]" keys. The score can also be decremented if the "shift" key is held down.
And here's what the scoreboard looks like up close (looks more like TF2, eh?):
This is the first working version I finished last night. I plan on releasing it to the public so that *ALL* casters can make their stuff look pretty good. I will have an eXtv flavor and a generic one for the public. I'll also have my HUD and everything else up on my blog next month when I have an official release of the plug-in. When I do release it I'll make a new thread with feature requests, blah blah blah.
Anyway, great job Dashner! Keep up the awesome work! I can't wait to see what you come up with next.
Edit: I did some research and it looks like my plug-in will work for OBS as well as XSplit. You just need the "CLR Browser plugin" for OBS to play SWF files. Huzzah!
