By request, here's a picture of the HUD we settled on:


High-Res image can be found here


Please take into consideration that it looks much crisper in-game, as I know it's going to look a bit jaggy in a screenshot

Looks great.

Hmm, not that cool. Especially the health bar needs to be reworked imho. Can't you keep that temp-hud that was used before in the game? Like it's selectable in the Options menu?

Its decent I think (no objections from me)... at the most it can be reworked in a later release IF too many people raise objections.

exactly. I'm more worried about getting other aspects of the game finished than getting some amazing looking HUD. It's only there to show information, and it does that fine :) You'll be too busy being shot at to pay too much attention to it anyways, :lol:

Oh yes, busy to kill em all.....................

Seriously, that's terrible. What happened to the one Xealous did?

I dunno, ask abs or do a better one yourself :P

I love how people will say "oh that sucks" without:
A. saying what they dislike
B. showing they can do better
C. realizing how much it time it takes to create a functional HUD
D. doing so in a very small time frame while also working on **** loads of other things
E. assuming that it's going to be the end all be all of the HUD
F. waiting to see what it actually looks like in-game

Instead of being asses about it, how about you spend the extra 30 seconds to suggest something better. You want a better HUD when the beta hasn't even been released yet? Pay me for all the personal time I've been using to create all this **** for a FREE mod for you guys to play, otherwise keep your negative comments to yourself unless we ask for them, Thanks
(this isn't a personal attack against you tow, I'm just tired of people bitching about stuff without giving actual useful feedback)

I DID do a better HUD. One Xealous made and i altered it. Xealous and I did a ton of variations and they were all so much nicer

28th Aug 2004, 02:29 AM
then why wasn't it used and why was I asked to do one? and also, I still got the original post ass :P I'm not saying mine was great, it's not like I had a lot of time to spend on it, but that doesn't mean you can't give constructive critisizim over making jackass comments, obviously if I had known that you guys had made one, I wouldn't have worried about throwing one together really quick.

Don't blame me for no one telling you there were hud images already done. How was i supposed to know they didn't tell you?

28th Aug 2004, 07:03 AM
spec, looks good. here is my little suggestion though:


make the health bar that much bigger. I think it will make a world of difference.

other than that, good job. I would normally hold things against you but nah, I don't care.

tow, I'm not trying to blame you for anything, we shouldn't even be aruging over this.

28th Aug 2004, 11:41 AM
rooster, that'll be taken into consideration when the HUD is reworked after beta

30th Aug 2004, 04:31 PM
i suggest more colors will be used, some textured including some images of a weapon, bullets or some stuff like that would be nice... its too red imo. but it will do fine as a beta version hud.

I'm tellin yea, making the HUD match the camo = teh win!
