VOTE! Do you think people should just shut up about the HUD and wait until they've played with it for a while?

no one whinning. Whats makes a successful mod is the mod team listens to the community dildo.

hmm...11-1, you=outvoted. Besides, if Epic ONLY listened to the community we would have a game with ultra powerful hitscan weapons that do 999 damage per shot, 12 shots per second rounds, and we would all have god mode enabled.

I have an idea, let's gayify a game before it's even released by whining about screenshots!!! That CAR in the screenshots looks just like the Unreal 2 one! FIX IT! MAKE IT DO 999 DAMAGE PER SHOT!!!!!!

You sir are an idiot. You cant listen to eveyone has to say as a developer. People in the community always shares a legit request that makes sense. People just asking a much better looking HUD. I mean wtf that doesnt change the physics of the gameplay. Nobody wants an ugly HUD to their favorite game.

Also i never seen anyone ask just outrageous request such as the example you just made.

I respect Brizz a hell of a lot more than most of the xmp people around. I've given up reading any of the HUD threads simply for the fact its the same crap over again stated by the same people. Just leave the dead horse alone!

It's called exaggeration/sarcasm. But the truth is people "want" a n00b game where they can always win as versus a skill game where they get womped by the "upper class" every time.

But since this has to do with the HUd, I'll tell you a secret.

3 MONTHS AFTER UTXMP COMES OUT YOU WON'T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT THE HUD!!

Also i cannot with stand people whinning about people whinning about talking and suggest or making new topics. Everytime i new thread opens people wanna lock it or tell everyone to stfu. That what this place is made for. Like you guys go to a social party but dont wanna talk to no one. Or going to a debate without debating.

There is a big difference between whining and "discussing".

Exhibit A: Whining: "THAT HUD SUXXORZ MY BALLZORZ!!!!! CHANGE IT OR I DIEEEEEEEEEEEE YOUR MOD WILT SUXXORZ ON DONKEEEZ BALLZORZ!!!!!!!!" "THAT HUD NO LOOK LIKE XMP HUD!!!!! YOUR MOD SUXXORZ RANDY BALLZORZ!!! YOU ALLLDIEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!"

Exhibit B: Discussion: "The HUD doesn't look so good, but I'll reserve judgement until the game is done" "The HUD would be better if X, Y, Z."

Every thread so far in these forums (especially concerning the HUD specifically) has been 95% A, 5% B. Free Monkey. Quit Complaining.

uh, saying it doesn't look good isn't passing judgement?
btw, nice unbiased options in the "poll", which inevitably, by opening a new thread from your own standpoint, furthers even more whining (by both sides, as it has been the case from the beginning)

oh, the irony! :lol:

Someone that says that isn't passing FINAL judgement until they can experience it personally.

However,"HUD NO GOOD YOU ALL SUCK" is not reserving any judgement or being constructive, hence why people just need to stfu.

I think it looks cool... who knows... it might be oneday possible to download a HUD Pack :-P or even a HUD editor lol.... wait... this might exist and I should now STFU lol...

Besides... you can change the size of HUD in 2k4 anyhoo.... uh... I am not adding am I?

How about little leds? and pseudo digital readout like from a Texas Instruments early days calculator?! that would be the Shizznit... LOL

I can only say.. with all sincerity...

Where the hell is this game?! ahahahaa..... I am SO drooling in anticipation :-P

Why can't there be a selection of HUDs in the options menu? If you didn't like the tribal then switch to classic or revised.

Should there even be a post about this? no.... should a moderator have deleted post threads for the good of the game? yes.

The HUD threads keep getting bumped with someone's "opinion" that was already stated probably 5 billion times already in the thread.

the mod team listens to the community dildo.

So that's where they get there information from? The Community Dildo.

no one whinning. Whats makes a successful mod is the mod team listens to the community dildo.

correct.

anybody who calls those who rightfully criticized the hud posted on various websites... "whiners" is really the whiner and isnt helping the devs much.

oddly, folks being overly defensive about something very BAD QUALITY... making new threads like this... and continuing to make this a huge drama... are the ones who might need to relax.

the hud sucked.

they either listen to common sense and all the constructive comments, or well... expect worse when released.

A Community Dildo? Isn't that unsanitary? How do they get information from it? I want to know these things.

"Affirmative"

Ok do you moan at the hud in a new game that you just purchaced, or do you play and deal with it... No :p

I have come to the opinion that the shame applies here... ;)

Wow. You're post sounds like "wah wah!! Doin't say I was whining about the HUD! WAH! IT SUCKED!!!!! WAH WAH!"

I'm not defensive about the HUD. The first one wasn't very good. IP has given us several version of a WAY better HUD that is not even nearly as ugly. Personally, I would have played with the original HUD, or the new one they made in the first screenhots, or any of them. I DON'T CARE. But the amount of NON-CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, and repetition of the EXACT SAME POINTS over and over again DOES NOT HELP. PERIOD. And that is 95-100% of the HUD threads are.

You all need to consult the Community Dildo, and just let go.
