how can i make it so that the ready up setup is offscreen at first and then appears when u hit f4
The events to animate it are HudTournamentSetupPanelOpen and HudTournamentSetupPanelClose.
Move the ypos of HudTournamentSetup (inside hudlayout.res) so that it is offscreen, then edit the above animations with the new, offscreen, ypos.
Is there any way to change an item meter's colour to be something other than white? I can change the background of it, but not the meter itself.
Have you tried fillcolor_override or fgcolor_override?
Yes, they both do nothing
