How to install this badass HUD BEFORE INSTALLING ON MAC AND LINUX, YOU MUST DO THE FOLLOWING: For the HUD to use proper fonts, you have to install the custom fonts to your computer. Do not worry, the font files are safe and virus free. To do so, go to KBNHud/resource/fonts, and select all the files in there, right click, and click the install option. This is all you need to do, and the HUD should work as intended.

This also solves long-existing issues with mac and linux not using proper fonts, and is permanent unless you reinstall your OS. TO MAKE THE INCLUDED CAPTIONS WORK, YOU MUST ADD THE FOLLOWING TO YOUR autoexec.cfg: closecaption 1 ccsubtitles 0 cclang 'clovervidiar' ccpredisplaytime 0 MAJOR NOTE: DO NOT DELETE THE 'info.vdf' FILE FROM THE HUD FOLDER. THE GAME WILL NOT LOAD THE HUD IF THE FILE IS MISSING!

Crashes on startup Edit: quote=fourquote=SolidSpeerlaiyeIt instantly crashed when I want to open it./quote This might be because your computer does not have the.net framework 2.0 installed. I thought that it was installed on every Windows PC by default but maybe it's not in some cases. I made a small program only containing an empty window, if it crashes instantly then the issue is that you don't have the.net framework installed url=The program doesn't crash. I had written something similar to this (not nearly as finished, of course), and my idea was to have two separate applications.

One for the everyday user, and another for those who create HUDs/plugins ect. The plan was that it would require almost no effort from me after release by having those who create the HUD do things such as upload the name/description/screenshots/ect, the only thing I would do is give them their own login account (to prevent needless spamming). No idea if you have a better system or what, just figured i'd post it.

Looks nice, good job ^^ edit: welp, looks like you covered this. Didn't notice the 'documentation for devs' button.

Didn't notice the 'documentation for devs' button. WareyaWhat is this magic, how did it detect that my HUD with no plugin metadata was a HUD? Well, I check if some 'key' files exist, so if the file ' sound ui hitsound.wav' exists it's a hitsound, if ' resource clientscheme.res' exists it's a hud. If neither is true I check if the folder ' addons ' exists and it has a file that ends with.dll. Finally I check the custom and custom folder if there are any.vpk files.:) wareyaAlso, windows thinks it's an installer and goes WAIT WHAT HAPPENED when I close it the first time.

I noticed this problem, Windows checks if the assembly of the file if the product/title of the tool contains 'instal' and shows this message if the program does not write a registry entry for a uninstall path. It doesn't show up anymore after compiling but I guess it does when launched properly. The best fix would be to find a better name. sp33dy1018This is amazing thank you!:D can't wait to see more of your future projects! Good luck:) Thanks.

KanecoI would go for 4plug as well or 4Manager, much easier to brand and make it stand out from other stuff. Yeah it sounds good, I wanted to make the name self explanation but 4Plug just sounds better.

KanecoAre you working towards a centralized server where all hud makers will be able to upload new version information or something like that? That would be the absolute max, being able to update and install any hud on demand. I'm currently cooperating with someone else and I hope we can make that happen! quote=KanecoI would go for 4plug as well or 4Manager, much easier to brand and make it stand out from other stuff./quote Yeah it sounds good, I wanted to make the name self explanation but 4Plug just sounds better. quote=KanecoAre you working towards a centralized server where all hud makers will be able to upload new version information or something like that?

Open the Workshardcould you please elaborate on the mac instructions for the non-coders here?

Like how do you 'change '4Plug.exe' to the direct path to 4Plug.exe?' . Open the file in a text editor. Select the file '4Plug.exe' in finder and press cmd + i on the keyboard.

Now copy the full path of the file. (Where). In the text editor there is a line with the text 'mono 4Plug.exe' - replace 4Plug.exe by the path you copied. Save.

Rename to run.command so it will be opened in the terminal instead of a text editor NOT NEEDED ANYMORE. Open thequote=Workshardcould you please elaborate on the mac instructions for the non-coders here?
