Heartbeat HUD?

07-20-2004, 09:16 AM
Anyone have the heartbeat HUD from 2.0 and 3.1? (that works for 1.3steam)

I've been looking for it and I guess i'm not looking in just the right places, cause I can't find it .

Would really appreciate it if anyone could point me in the direction of the files or send em to me .

Ty for your time,

I've got the files, somewhere. I know I saw them, I just need to find them. Let me do some digging followed by some testing, and I'll see if I can get it working for you. I am pretty busy tomorrow ( Sunday, the 8th ), but I'll try to have something for you by mid-week. Cool?

http://dodec.hlgaming.com Im sure we do!!!

Check the sprites section.

Just checked out all the HUDs on DODEC, and I don't see the one I think he's talking about . I'll check it out & see if I can get it to work.

I have the hudheart.spr file, but not the proper hudlayout.spr file. Without that, I'm not sure I can make it work. Also, since the hudheart.spr and hudlayout.spr are different files, I'm not sure if they work together anymore. I tried to download DoD 2.0 so I could pull the proper layout file, but cant find 2.0 avail anywhere. =/ Without that, I'm pretty much stuck. But, I'll keep looking. If I find it, I'll try to make it work.

I think this is nearly impossible to do, the hud-related sprites in 3.1b were all individual sprites, whereas now this is handled by a single sprite (hud_layout.spr). If anything, I'm guessing converting this would involve a seriously lengthy trial and error process, since you'd have to move the health and stamina bars in the sprite.

Yeah, I know.
I've tried a few things to custom-redo the heartbeat HUD with what is included with 3.1's HUD, and it ain't working. I can get the pic of the heart on there just fine... but it won't have the beating anim. I don't think it's possible to make it beat either with the current way the HUD is implemented.

I'll keep tinkering, tho. I like the look of the X-ray chest with the heart in it, so I may just run with that for a new motif for a HUD. It likely wont be the same as the earlier HUD, but it may be similar enough. Since I don't think making it work the way it used to is possible, "close enough" may have to also be "good enough".

But as I said, I'll keep trying. :D

Ty happyfunball. I have the complete 3.1 installation if you would like me to pull the files out of there.

I tried to just throw em in my steamy dod and adjust some of the measurements. I get a heart lol, no beating. And the measures are waked with the 1.3 hud, so some bars are in-active or covered up.

If you can pull it off, you have my infinite gratitude. I'm pretty sure there are others out there that would love that hud too lol.

HappyFunBall, how's the progress goin'?

Sorry, I was out of town for a few days.

Getting the heart to beat is not gonna happen. :(
However, I'm using the over-all look to make a new HUD. So, it'll be the same, but different. I've got a busy week ahead as my mother-in-law is coming to stay with us for the next eight days ( bleh ), but I'll work on it evenings & such to de-stress. Expect it to be in Releases maybe by the 24th or 25th.

I can't wait :^) What are you going to do new, then?

08-17-2004, 08:38 PM
I'm going to try to go for the old Look of the HUD, but with the new layout. Can't change the layout, so I will adjust things, while trying to keep it with the same feel as the old one. So, even tho the heart won't beat, it *will* be there, along with as many of the old elements I can effectively get in. Basically, nothing new... just cosmetic changes. But, I hope those are cool enough to make it worthwhile. So far, it looks pretty darn good. :D

Rock on man. Like I said in my pm to ya: I would greatly prefere a non-beating heart over the dude doing jumping jax. lol.

Thanx for doing this for us man :) . Can't wait to use it ;) .
C ya,

My mother-in-law just left town after a week long visit.
So, I'm not ready to dive back into the stuff I wanted to work on for the past week. :D This will be done soon, I hope. Keep your eye on the Releases forum.
