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 don't add me on Steam. Feel free to post questions or feedback in the thread.
Shoutout/thanks to Benroads, rays and Goat.

FAQ
1) I don't like/use broeselhud_blue but can you help me with something?
No. Feel free to download the HUD and search/copy what you need (as long as it's for personal use).

2) How do I change colours or remove the low ammo shadow?
Go into resource/clientscheme. The first 3 numbers represent red, green, blue. RGB codes can be found here for example: http://www.rapidtables.com/web/color/RGB_Color.htm The 4th number is opacity, don't change it.

3) How do I switch between 6v6 and 12v12 scoreboard?
Toggle cl_hud_minmode in console or press the scoreboard button that appears in the main menu when you are on a server: http://puu.sh/a1aMT/bfcf2d3b9d.jpg

4) How do I switch to numerical HP?
Go into resource/ui/, rename or delete hudplayerhealth, then remove _numeric from hudplayerhealth_numeric.

5) How do I switch to the regular TargetID?
Go into resource/ui/, rename or delete spectatorguihealth, targetid, disguisestatuspanel, and healthiconpanel, then remove _regular from spectatorguihealth_regular, targetid_regular, disguisestatuspanel_regular, and healthiconpanel_regular.

6) Why is the ping column cut off in the scoreboard?
This means you use a resolution lower than 1440x900. Go into resource/ui/scoreboard and follow the instruction at the top. Note: If I fixed it for all resolutions, there would be dead space in the scoreboard when using high resolutions. Since most people use high resolutions anyway, this is the most reasonable solution I can provide.

7) Why is the tournament spectator panel cut off/not centered?
The reason is your aspect ratio. Rename or delete resource/ui/spectatortournament, then remove _4x3/_5x4/_16x9 (your aspect ratio) from the corresponding spectatortournament file.

8) How do I fix my HP cross not being centered inside the background cross?
This happens on some resolutions. Go into resource/ui/hudplayerhealth and follow the instructions you'll find under PlayerStatusHealthImage and PlayerStatusHealthBonusImage.

9) How do I enable the transparent HP cross?
Go into resource/ui/hudplayerhealth and follow the instruction you'll find under PlayerStatusHealthImageBG.

10) How do I get the default main menu?
Delete resource/gamemenu and resource/ui/mainmenuoverride.

11) How do I switch to the oldschool surface font with unproportional numerals?
Download this alternative broeselhud_blue version: http://puu.sh/aoDDr/8d1ed3b220.7z and extract the folders to tf/custom/xxx. I don't recommend this because the HUD is optimised for the proportional surface font.

12) How do I use HUD crosshairs?
Open scripts/hudlayout, choose a crosshair, set visible to 1. You can change the size to any value between 10 and 50 via the "size: xx, outline: on/off" option. To change the color, edit fgcolor as explained in FAQ #2. If the crosshair is not centered, change xpos/ypos or wide/tall and hud_reloadscheme until it is.

13) How do I make the HUD crosshair flash red on hit?
Go into scripts/hudanimations_tf, search for "DamagedPlayer" and follow the instructions you'll find there.

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.

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 :)

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.

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.

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.
