RietHUD is now released, along with its own website!

Originally a personal project based on the yahud variant “FLVHUD”, it gained a bit of popularity and I decided to go ahead and release what I’ve done so far.

Everything on the site should be explained pretty well, go and check it out!

Finally have things to a state I feel comfortable with, lots of things are still carried over from yahud but I either like them as they are, or they’re not visible often enough or egregious enough to be worth changing at this point.

I’ll be keeping the scoreboard from yahud since I really like it, though I may move some things around, the ping and score fields are rather wide and could be thinned a bit to make room for longer names.

I’m really satisfied with the frame trick on the menu when you’re ingame, one thing I didn’t like about yahud is the completely opaque menu, and keeping the frames around the screen always visible really brings it together, I think.

Little bit of progress:
• Doubled size of HUD model
• Restyled item bars
• Restyled metal count
• Changed the overall grey scheme back to TF2 colors
• Changed some fonts
• Changed the loadout preview to span the entire background
• Added switching between Red and Blu skins in the preview
• Added more in-depth camera manipulation in the preview

The coloring of the empty backpack slots is evading me, though hopefully I’ll be able to knock that out soon. Also the HUD model seems a bit squished horizontally, I have no idea how to fix that though, I perfectly doubled the size of how it was originally.

Again, this is a modified yahud, slowly turning it into my own personal thing.
