Hey, I'm sure you've heard of broeselhud, a very popular custom TF2 HUD among competitive as well as public players. Unfortunately broesel hasn't really been maintaining his HUD. Since I'm a huge broeselhud enthusiast, I decided to do something about that and began developing broeselhud_blue. Starting in Fall 2013 I've been updating every little detail that I could find in a timely manner. Also I've improved the HUD by adding or changing certain features. I hope you enjoy it.

Please refrain from adding me on Steam. Don't hesitate to post questions or feedback in the thread though. I check this thread frequently and basically always respond.

Shoutout/thanks to Benroads, rays, and Goat.

Any way to tell me how can I get the halloween spell thing to show only the spell without the book + team bg?
Another thing is if you can, tell me how can I get tf_hud_show_servertimelimit on my broesel and still have my team bg on normal counter, and have the tf_hud_show_servertimelimit counter below it, I remember you created one if I'm not mistaken, but I can't find it.

Plus the stuff I added/changed. It's all quite self-explanatory :)

Also, my "target group" is broeselhud enthusiasts: people who already know they like broeselhud but want an updated version without much hassle.

Edit: Added one screenshot to the main post now.

Team-colored background is removed in the version you can download here. To remove the spell book, go into resource/ui/hudspellselection.res and edit like this (move it off-screen):

"Spellbook"
{
"ControlName" "CTFImagePanel"
"fieldName" "Spellbook"
"xpos" "999"
"ypos" "999"
"zpos" "0"
"wide" "64"
"tall" "56"
"visible" "0"
"enabled" "0"
"image" "spellbook_book"
"scaleImage" "1"
}

I prefer my version above the control points though, it's more central in my field of view and less work/repositioning of HUD elements.

No, sorry.

* Increased TargetDataLabel's font size by 1, made its font color cyan.
Had to change this back actually, the label got cut off a bit at higher resolutions. Sorry for the inconvenience. DL link is updated. You just need to replace targetid.res.

From ETF2L:

I re-enabled the team colour border. The black outline of the health cross is off on the right side, how can I fix it? And how can I make it semi-transparent again?
http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=190700173

I also tweaked the the 3D player model to make distinguishing the Medics heal gun via disguising as Spy easier, if anyone is interested: http://etf2l.org/forum/general/topic-27041/

The misplaced cross is resolution-dependent. Fixed it for high resolutions now and added an instruction for lower resolutions in hudplayerhealth.res. Also added instruction to enable transparent health cross in hudplayerhealth.res. DL link updated.

There's no reason not to, so I put your 3D avatar tweak in :)

I improved some minor things, among them high resolution optimisations. DL link is updated. Also, feel free to report or ask anything you notice. Help keeping broeselhud alive! :)

I'm gonna say personal preference, like I prefer the non transparent one over the transparent one.

T0m is right, personal preference. I like the contrast between the buff/low health cross and the non-transparent background cross better.

Added more screenshots and did some small changes.

CONCERNING 22 NOV UPDATE: DELETE YOUR RESOURCE/SCRIPTS FOLDER, DOWNLOAD NEWEST VERSION AND INSTALL
Some files need to be deleted, that means replacing your folders won't suffice.

* Added "CTFKillStreakNotice" to scripts/hudlayout. Don't know yet what it does, feel free to send me a screenshot when you notice.
* Removed custom MVM files (MVM HUD will be default).

great edit, just have one question

how do you edit the scoreboard? I'm on 1920x1080 and the ping part of the scoreboard is cut off. I was thinking about just taking out the streak column.

The ping part is only cut off because of the new streaks column. I honestly don't know yet how to repair that, will need some time...

Looking into it a bit myself, people have told me that nothing has been added to the scoreboard file so theres a good chance valve was lazy and just threw it in there instead of setting it up as it's own value. I really hope theres a way to get around this cause I do not want that nasty killstreak shit on my scoreboard.

By the way to do a quick fix on the whole ping thing you can change the "name_width" value in scoreboard.res under scores



However if you used the stacked minmode scoreboard you'll also need to set a minmode version that will probably get a bit cramped. I have mine set to 12v12 for both minmodes so it's not really breaking anything.

* Fixed ping getting cut off in the scoreboard due to the new streaks column.

Scoreboard file only: http://www.file-upload.net/download-8320354/scoreboard.res.html
(DL link in the start post is updated as well)

Thanks to Benroads for the idea, just had to reduce the name_width value. This is not an optimal solution in my opinion, so I hope there will be an option to remove the streaks column eventually.

It was actually rays idea, totally forgot to credit him as it was ~3am my time. Im currently looking into some of the mvm stuff and seeing how hard it would be to fix up. I'm not sure exactly what they've edited so that might be a bit of an ordeal.
