#4737 HUD editing: short questions, quick answers in Customization

Does anyone know how to edit the DashboardDimmer element? I have checked all over the place and can't find the folder that controls this.
Not currently, and I’ve tried everything. Hiding it with visible, xpos, pinning it somewhere off screen. I only managed to hide it when I reload the hud. If you relaunch, it ignores any changes you made to it. It’s fucking dumb dude.
I tried the same thing and had the same results. Hopefully they fix this, it's so ugly seeing a unshaded part everytime you open the queue menu.

I wasn't able to find the file that it is in, but I found a workaround to removing the dimmer. I found that the dimmer has a zpos of 1000, so to "remove" the dimmer, you need to set the zpos on everything that it covers to something above 1000.

I tried it out just now, seems to work nicely:

(Don't worry about my menu not looking like yours, I was in the middle of editing it when I decided to tackle the dimmer)

Also, because you now have access to the buttons on the menu, opening up the backpack for example won't remove the "Find a Game" menu, meaning the dimmer will still be up when you enter the backpack. So you need to set the zpos of everything in the backpack to something above 1000 as well. And I think the dimmer has the ability to close the playlist when you click on it, because when I click on the background, expecting it to close the playlist, it doesn't.

Hope this helps :)
