this is now officially working again in the latest update (blue moon). the entire hud has been rewritten so some things might look different, but mainly the biggest change is that the classic centered hud (from 2013-2015) is now back and included by default.
the other big change is that you can now update the hud yourself with a batch script (thank wiethoofd for the idea), or by dropping in unchanged stock files from the VPKs to the default_hudfiles folder, just like with wiethud. the stock files will get merged with my changes at runtime due to the "base" include system this hud now uses, essentially patching over the stock files.
also, it is fairly simple to add hud crosshairs or edit animations, colors etc. if you need to. just look around in the resource and script folders to see what i've done for some examples on how this all works.
