  • I mean does the server have to have it for you to use it? Also, if you go on a server with it on there, will it give you that HUD, or will it keep your standard HUD

  • No it doesn't. It's [B]client[/B]side. You download it, you use it on any server.

  • Does the armor display work in both mulitplay and singleplayer? And where does the CSE Firemode indicator appear?
  • Avatar of TomatoSoup
  • [QUOTE=Night-Eagle]CSE is very out of date and needs to be updated before I add HUD support again.[/QUOTE] *FBI voice* Just answer the question, Mr. Eagle.
  • COME ON garrysmod.org is back up upload it i really want this and ihud sucks balls

  • Bump, for great justice. [b]Edit:[/b] But no, it looks like the CSE Firemode indicators will intersect with the ammo display. And I don't think that armor works in multiplayer. [b]Edit:[/b] Okay, I checked it out. Very nice. Just need a clientside method to change where the CSE Firemode indicator appears.

  • I got 3D text to work. Unfortunately... [quote=Garry] // Render text to our texture // We could optimize this by having a texture for each item and only drawing it once // Also, note that it's additive. // I really wanted to get the alpha working - but it doesn't work with the drawtext methods I'm using in the engine. // The alpha from the vgui text draw blends with the alpha from the render target - so rendering to a 0 alpha texture // produces no output. Which sucks and I haven't found a way around it yet.

  • How about this: Make a model and take a picture of it, Now make holes into the areas where the metter will be and make the metter effect be under the 3d model picture what you're using as a material. And then you got it, Same with the 3d effects, You just need to make animation and save it as animated material.

  • do you think you can make a combine themed one (blue, combine logo cross hairs,maybe one for each combine troop,a changeable blue overlay or red overlay or even no overlay for elites solders or metro cops?) it would be nice for Role Playing.oh and a npc and player traking radar would be nice too!

  • Fluch, dieses hud ist kühl. Obwohl ich nicht ihn benötigen werde, einen lua König haben. English: Damn, that hud is cool. Though I won't be needing it, have a lua king.
  • Avatar of RebelCricket
  • needs more flicker effect. Also, units on the HUD's (i.e. health, ammo) boxes should have a blue trim. That would be cool. Yeah... OK, maybe not. Damn...

  • Have you released those huds which you've shown in this thread? If you have, would you give me a link to them? Thank you Night-Eagle

  • You should add detail to make it look more real, scratches on the 'glass' and visible helmet bits at the top + sides.

  • Look, I know this is a bump from the dead, but I have a question. How would I force people to download this HUD from the server? I think I would put it in autorun/client and have a AddCSLuaFile("autorun/client/ephud.lua") in autorun.

  • [QUOTE=Starce234]Why would you want to do that? It would piss people off bigtime.[/QUOTE] So I can have a standard HUD for my server, something better than the default HUD, and use Script Enforcer.
  • If someone could make a life support module for this, as well as give it a slight reflective shader (so it seems as if you're looking out through a helmet), it would make it awesome.

  • Bump with a purpose: First, awesome. I've tried a couple HUD replacements and not really liked them much and this is definitely > others I think. One small problem. I play on a 16:10 monitor (1920*1200) and the bottom displays for armor and ammo get cut off due to the aspect ratio. Also, is it just me or does the ammo indicator go insane when you have the gravity gun equipped? It flickers green bars across it. I'll take a quick fix to paste in if you've got one handy. Here's a 50% scaled reference image just in case: [URL=http://imageshack.us][IMG]http://img294.imageshack.us/img294/4993/sixteenbytenhudbugts8.jpg[/IMG][/URL]

  • Yeah, sorry, I didn't make an inverse function to calculate correct positioning for all the elements, nor rescale the sphere for wider ratios. Because of the sine curves, the 2D measurements are, obviously, not a good idea to use. The "flickering green bar" is actually a scrolling green bar - it does that when there is no ammo in the clip. I think my private version remedies that.

(c is a constant) Domain: c >= x >= 0 [/code]

  • This did something very odd to my Garry's Mod... I installed it and played around with it, Then suddenly my FPS went down to 5-7 for about 8 seconds, Then went up really fast, Then down and up and down and up again. I uninstalled it and the FPS weirdness stopped. What the fuck?
