August 21st: Added old crosshairs back (disabled by default) for those who had a crosshair they used go away with the unified crosshair changes.

August 6th: Added whayay's small crosshair to the TF2Crosshairs font. This is the crosshair Uncle Dane originally used, so I've added it back in.

July 31st: Contains a number of minor fixes, but primarily phases out the old crosshairs in favor of Hypnotize's unified crosshair font. Besides making crosshairs easier to use, a combined crosshair font also aids in lowering game load and panel load times.

The hud now contains the following crosshairs combined into one font: Fog's Crosshairs, KnucklesCrosses, BroeselHUD Crosshairs, yahud Crosshairs, ToonHud Crosshairs, Seekers Crosshair


I tend to make a ton of minor updates to the hud; the best place to view changes would be here:

Kjin posted on 21-05-2016, 12:25 AM

I have not tried out any of the new versions yet, but I've had a problem with the voice command menu each time. The problem was that each time I would say a voice command, it would freeze the game for a few milliseconds to a second. If you try to figure out the problem at all, I would appreciate it. Also, this does not happen to any other HUD I use, just to clear things up.

Whisker posted on 11-06-2016, 12:47 AM

Hm, that's odd. The only thing I could attribute to that is uber tracking. Do you use that by chance?

Also, my response time here may not be the best -- the best place to post bugs/issues/etc would be in the Steam group, since it notifies me (and I have no life and am usually on Steam):

Zee posted on 08-07-2016, 07:58 PM

The hud looks beautiful, first off. However when I start up the game I'm having trouble starting a game. When I press "find a game" nothing happens (I am on Mac).

Ah, apologies friends; I do not check these messages/get notified of them (the best place to get in touch with me is in the Steam group). I'm unfortunately taking a break from updating the hud as I've lost a lot of interest in TF2 as of late. I may return to it in the future, but I don't want to set any expectations Sad

I like the design of this HUD, but I got some requests.
First of all, I would like the button training in the main menu, because I use it when I want to play against bots.
In game menu, I couldn't find the alert button (I mean, the notification one, when you found an intem)
And finally, when I choose a class, there is no button to change loadouts. I would like when press the E key like in other huds.

With these things added, it would be the perfect hud for me Smile

luwoh posted on 23-12-2016, 02:02 PM

Hey, great HUD. Just wanted to point out that on my Mac when I play soldier my viewmodels are broken for shotgun and melee. Also the shotgun uses the rocket launcher reload animation

I don't really know what's going on, but if you could fix it that'd be greatly appreciated

Whisker posted on 23-12-2016, 10:26 PM

The only thing the HUD could affect is your viewmodels and their transparency; no commands are force-loaded that could cause animation issues.

Whisker posted on 02-01-2017, 07:35 AM

I just left a message in the hud group, but for anyone else:

change the "ypos" value to something like r50. r makes the element start at the bottom, so r50 will make it 50 pixels above the bottom of your screen. If it's too low, raise the value.

Sir Reginald Von Bartlesby posted on 04-01-2017, 12:15 AM

Where is the Training Mode button? Have you taken it out? If so, can you please update the HUD so there is a Training Mode button on the main menu. I actually use Training Mode to try out new weapons, try new loadouts, etc.

The Raven From DK posted on 21-01-2017, 07:56 PM

Hi, I really like your hud. However, I wanted the chat box to be at the bottom left and not top left. So I changed the y-position 200 down in the BaseChat. Whenever a game is about to start, the game shows those two doors being closed, and at this point, the chat box goes up to the top left corner instead of the bottom left corner. How come it does this? Whenever I hud_reloadscheme it goes down again...

Lillie posted on 22-01-2017, 01:02 AM

I really like your HUD, however. I'd like a few things fixed. First of all, fix the You're on your way while loading, because it strikes with other elements of the HUD and makes it distracting. Second of all, put a shortcut while picking a class, like press E to change the loadout and back out again. I hope you fix these issues in the future because I really like your HUD, but for now I will stick to eve HUD.

Toon_link2 posted on 22-01-2017, 10:10 PM

is there any way to make the chat be on it's normal location instead of the top of the screen?

Whisker posted on 25-01-2017, 01:53 AM

@Alino: It appears in the tiny TV as an exclamation point

@The Raven From DK: You have to also adjust it in the animation files. Go to: \budhud\scripts\bh_hudanimations\bh_general.res and change the two ypos values (default is 5) there. You should see the two entries for chat at the top.

@Lillie: I'm not sure what you're referring to. Are you on the latest version of the hud? My server connection screens do not overlap at all. For your second concern, I didn't really see any reason to have that given that you can just hit m by default to adjust your current loadout, but it should be easy enough to add those.

@Toon_link2: In `\budhud\_budhud\resource\ui\basechat.res`, you have to change the ypos value of "HudChat". You also have to change the animation ypos to be the same as I mentioned above.

Could you please put a counter for how many classes there are on your team in the class pick screen Smile

Whisker posted on 19-02-2017, 09:26 PM

@(PH) Cyrvs127: Sorry about that, keep forgetting. I added a note on my github. The next time I work on the hud I'll try to include it somewhere. I'll need to find a decent enough place for it, though.

@ıllıllı Sqυιℓℓ ıllıll: Glad to hear! Smile

@Eric Enchilada: I believe this only exists when the server is running in a competitive variant (mp_tournament 1, etc). In casual/regular pubs, it won't show up. I could be totally mistaken and this is a thing that could be added to regular play, so let me know if you've seen this with other huds and I'll investigate!

Zoinks posted on 21-02-2017, 03:26 PM

I like this hud.
The only thing I think is lacking is the fact you can't go to your loadout from the class selection screen.

scy7e posted on 22-02-2017, 05:49 PM

doesnt work at all for me which is a shame because i really like this hud, when i delete all my other huds and put this one in place and go in game it shows the default hud

Whisker posted on 22-02-2017, 09:06 PM

I'll add a key you can press when hovering over a class in the class selection screen; does that seem good?

@scy7e: You're moving the entire `budhud` folder over, correct? Not just `_budhud`? Check out this installation video to verify:

Hoodiebud posted on 24-02-2017, 07:30 PM

I took the folder with the hud and moved it to the custom folder. but when i open up tf2, it shows me the normal hud.

I would read up on the wiki here just to be 100% that everything is being moved over properly:

This hud looks flippin fantastic! Had to kinda guess on how to install, (put the master folder into the custom folder lol) But it looks really good. I especially like how the loading box clips over the colored bars while they still flash and stuff, looks epic.

Whisker posted on 01-06-2017, 08:41 AM

Since a lot of people appear to want it, I'll look into a way of adding the training and console buttons more appropriately.

@MClogic: When you have a new notification, it appears on the menu inside of the Twitch Stream TV in the center.

@Eric Enchilada: It should, yes, but I'll add that to my list of things to check to make sure it's still working properly.

@Hot Air Intake: Totally unintentional, but I like it too =). It is a bit harder of an install with how the hud is designed, but this adds more functionality in terms of customization (which I hope to do the next time I get a second wind for hud editing).

The only problem that I have with this Hud, is that when you play MvM the timer before the round starts is missing. Other than that this hud is probably my favorite and keep up the amazing work updating it!

And why is there no XP bar when the match finishes? The amount of xp i gain shows, but the XP bar does not show, only the medal

Whisker posted on 14-01-2018, 11:14 AM

@ Emil ♡:
Check the wiki here --

@Sanctus Dominus:
For your first question, the notification is sometimes invisible (I don't know why). I'm not sure if it's a TF2 thing or a budhud thing. In either case, if you have a new item you should still be able to click on the TV icon on the main menu and it should pop up. If you don't have a new item, it will just load the stream list.
For your second question, this is unintentional behavior given how the EXP bar currently is set. I may be able to fix this in the future.

When viewing loadout, instead of rotating the class, it rotates them horizontally (aka in a circle) instead of round and round. Is this because of any update or what? I'm on Linux.

Whisker posted on 12-03-2018, 01:53 AM

This is a bit complicated to answer, but this video might help:
I know it's probably a bit more complicated than other huds, but once you figure out how to do it, it lets you swap between different fonts whenever you want.

@NGin #TF2SP: This appears to sporadically happen to me. Does it happen all the time for you? If it only happens every so often, I'm 99% confident it's a TF2 thing. The whole rotating class thing wasn't actually built for the loadout menu, so I think a bug like that is bound to happen.

@Alcone: This will be fixed in the next update!

@Reverse: Have you checked out the installation instructions here?
A quick summary: Download the hud -> extract the zipped file to `budhud-master` -> move the entirety of `budhud-master` into `\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Team Fortress 2\tf\custom\`.
You should then have a folder in that directory titled `budhud-master` that contains these folders: #customization, #users, _budhud, _stream_, _tf2hud, cfg, materials, resource, scripts, .gitignore (can be deleted), info.vdf (can NOT be deleted), (can be deleted).

Interesting, are they pink?

The Notsees posted on 24-04-2018, 01:30 AM

No they are a whitish color that blends in with the power meter but looks out of place because the coloring stands out random on edges and makes it hard to read and messes up my OCD. Wish I could send a screenshot to show you what I mean.

I haven't heard of anyone else (yet) having similar experiences, so I'm not sure what to tell you as of now unfortunately. Generally speaking, if the hud is causing a crash it's consistent/happens every time you try to do something, and for a number of people.

Hello, I've recently downloaded the hud and it's really great and clean but I found a relatively small problem with it where a lot of the screen just goes white when I open the MvM upgrade menu, try to use the training mode or receive an alert. Also, this is also very small, but I think the advanced options menu should have brighter text as it's a little hard to read. Thank you!

Whisker posted on 12-06-2018, 07:45 AM

@SnIckerdoodle: Huh, that's quite strange. Does this happen all of the time, where it's a white background? Or every time one of these elements pops up? And I agree with you on the advanced options menu colors, I need to improve those.

SnIckerdoodle posted on 12-06-2018, 02:35 PM

This always happens with only these specific things that I took screetshots of. These plus one that I forgot to mention, where it does the same thing with the time limit thingy. I've added another screenshot with an example to the Imgur album that I'd linked in the previous comment. I've also noticed that other people using budhud, like Uncle Dane, don't have those issues. I've tried redownloading it but it didn't work and I don't really understand this sort of stuff very well so I don't know any other possible solutions. Thanks anyways Smile

No mater what I do I cant get any huds to work. I have tried everything I can find. Can you please help.

Its a nice hud very clean and to the point(i like the jackie chan thing you did there) but i started to get nasty lag spikes when i play with this h U d

IAmBadman posted on 26-08-2018, 08:44 PM

Nice hud, I enjoy it very much. But I have two problems. First of, I cant find the settings (maybe Im just blind or so). Second the scoreboard only shows 6 players per team and I dont know wether this is intentional or not.

IAmBadman posted on 27-08-2018, 10:37 AM

Ok I found the options and yep, I'm a dumbass

I need help with the crosshair colors when i try to get whayays crosshair to yellow instead of white my hud just becomes green or pink and i have followed the instructions but it still makes the hud green or pink..would like some help!Big Grin

Ok, shit hud the fucking ammo count'n stuff some times just fuck don't show up?!? WHY!!!

a damn large pile of shit posted on 17-09-2018, 05:21 PM

Sometimes the objective info just disappears, no way to get it back I believe :/

Whisker posted on 28-09-2018, 12:44 PM

@IAmBadman: hahaha, don't worry about it. happens to all of us Smile

@caiz: What do you mean the hud? Is only the crosshair changing to green/pink or is something else changing as well? What RGB values are you using?

@Soggy Pretzel: Thanks for your thought-provoking and well formulated input, valued patron.

@a damn large pile of shit: I haven't personally experienced this. I just pushed all of my latest file changes, maybe try reinstalling and seeing if it still happens? If it continues to happen: when does it disappear? on death? and by objective info do you mean control points/payload?

Womble posted on 01-10-2018, 09:49 PM

Hey, this is by far my favorite hud. I have noticed that the player models look different, my question is: Did you change the position/pose of the player model? And if yes could you make a customization file to make them like they used to. Or maybe it is an issue on my end. Thanks in advance Smile

Nova (4) posted on 25-10-2018, 02:25 AM

When i have the hud installed, the Style button won't drop down so i can pick the different style of my cosmetics, i don't know if anyone else is having this problem so.

WɆX🎃 posted on 26-10-2018, 12:26 PM

the hud is fundamentally broken on my end and nothing i've tried fixes it, i'll let a screencap do the explaining;

Whisker posted on 27-10-2018, 12:25 AM

@pringlehead degenerate halfbreed:
It's disabled by default, but can be enabled

@Nova (4):
This is working on my end: are you on the latest version?

Must be on your end; haven't heard from anyone else that they're having such issues. What OS are you on? Do you have other lingering hud files in your custom folder that could be causing the issues?

WɆX🎃 posted on 22-11-2018, 10:09 AM

i figured out the issue; it conflicts with my old gfx config, i reinstalled tf2 and budhud works just fine until i install my old cfg

Bh_Ammo_Size doesn't work it makes the shadow of the ammo reserve sit outside of the ammo

For anyone wondering how to fix it just go into bh_ammo_size and change the xpos to
under ammo in reserve shadow

good catch, I'll re-work that customization file

RoosterTeeth SECOND™ posted on 06-03-2019, 04:07 AM

Hello, Whisker.
I'm going to be frank. I absolutely LOVE this hud, but there's one problem with it. The payload progress bar(s) [objectivestatusescort.res & objectivestatusmultipleescort.res) I don't like. Originally, I thought "I'll just grab the files from another hud that looks good" But I quickly realized it doesn't work like that. It still gets the same "style" even if shaping it differently. If you could either A) Do a brief summary on the files I should be directed to, or B) Link me to a place where I could get a better description. I appreciate your help and that is literally the ONLY thing I dislike about it. Thanks!

Whisker posted on 12-03-2019, 12:23 AM

If you want to get the old payload icons, you'd have to:
1. Go into `\budhud\_budhud\resource\ui` and rename or delete both `objectivestatusescort` and `objectivestatusmultipleescort`
2. Go into `\budhud\materials\hud` and rename or delete all of the `cart_` files

Just keep in mind this is what the vanilla payload hud looks like:

It's pretty easy.

Dogewarrior posted on 02-04-2019, 03:58 AM

Whisker, you've made an awesome hud and I love it. I have recently built a new pc and when I attempt to add the "_budhud" folder to my custom folder my game crashes at startup. Not even the loading screen. I'm using windows 10 with mastercomfig 6.9.0. Any ideas? Thanks.

Whisker posted on 02-04-2019, 10:01 PM

heya! Try moving budhud-master, and not just `_budhud` Smile

Pretty good, just annoying how the map name covers the stats whilst loading into a game.

Whisker posted on 16-09-2019, 11:43 PM

yeah agreed, though unfortunately (to the best of my belief) this happens with the default hud too Sad

Ágúst posted on 27-10-2019, 08:14 PM

Can i get traditional budhud but the only difference is that the main menu layout is the same as default hud?

Whisker posted on 01-11-2019, 05:00 PM

unfortunately, I can't really think of an easy way off the top of my head to accomplish that. You'd have to remove the main menu file and custom menu animations for starters, but I'm sure there are other things that would have to be done as well

I met the dude who made this hud in a server one day when I was complaining that my HUD at the time was busted. He was really cool, notably more skilled than me and not a dick about it like some.

This is my new favorite HUD since the death of ToonHUD, it has A/D page switching in the backpack menu which is essentially all I wanted. Good HUD made by a cool dude.

Whisker posted on 13-01-2020, 05:20 PM

<3 thanks for the kind words!

Dond Feller posted on 20-03-2020, 11:38 PM

This is an amazing hud! I've been using it since 2019. Even though I try to get into other huds I always get back to this one. Yours is the only hud that I keep coming back to and that's incredible for the huds that I've seen. Good work Whisker!

RaposaHunter 🐾 posted on 24-03-2020, 07:04 AM

is this the only hud that shows matchmaking status?

Whisker posted on 05-04-2020, 09:20 AM

thank you Dond Feller <3 I really appreciate it. before I really got into releasing this hud publicly, I actually swapped off of my hud a few times because I couldn't tell if I actually liked my hud or not, but I also always ended up coming back to it hahahah. so it's a bit funny to hear someone had a similar experience Big Grin

@RaposaHunter ?: someone in the HUDS.TF Discord said TF2HudPlus also has stats on the main menu:

You can see those stats in this screenshot:

Bunster posted on 07-04-2020, 07:24 PM

alright, i downloaded a few huds for a while now, all having the same issue. Teleports don't cost 125 anymore. so when i build a sentry first, i cannot place a teleport, can you fix the metal count?

Whisker posted on 26-04-2020, 10:56 PM

I'm not really sure what you're referring to. Do you mean in the PDA? It's correct on my end. If it's happening on multiple huds, it's likely a TF2 issue of some sort but I'm not seeing any discrepancies on my end.

Lambda (3) posted on 07-05-2020, 11:58 AM

This HUD is clean and beautiful and everything is where you need it. This is my favorite HUD so far. Though there is a small bug related to all mediguns. The percentage of uber (and the amount of ubers in the vaccinator) doesn't show sometimes for some odd reason. That happens at least in my case on the lastest update.

Whisker posted on 26-05-2020, 02:11 AM

thank you for the kind words Lambda! I'm glad you like it.
that's a really strange issue you're having, and I haven't heard of it happening before. does it tend to happen when certain things occur (when you respawn it's not there, or when you switch weapons and switch back, etc etc)? I'd be really curious to know what causes it

Whisker posted on 07-07-2020, 10:36 PM

Unfortunately, I'm not sure if/when I'll support Open Fortress or Team Fortress Classic. They're both not games I play and I'm not sure exactly how many people would actually use the hud in those games at the moment.

How can you move the demoman's charge meter to be under ur crosshair?

Hi, I kinda need some help. You know the bottom left corner where it's supposed to show your loadout and stuff? Mine just shows a picture of the beta mercs. How do I fix that? (sorry for bad english)

Whisker posted on 24-08-2020, 06:56 AM

I have heard of this happening but have not been able to replicate it on my end. It seems to be a TF2 issue from what I've been hearing, sadly.

The stickybomb charge meter is controlled in ..\budhud\_budhud\resource\ui\huddemomanpipes.res by "ChargeMeter". You would need to adjust the x/ypos values for that. I believe the charge meter for the charge n targe/etc is controlled in ..\budhud\_budhud\resource\ui\huddemomancharge.res by "ChargeMeter" as well.

@demoman from expiration date:
I believe you're looking for the console command: cl_hud_playerclass_use_playermodel 1

I like this hud, it has support for Windows, Linux, and even Mac, and support for pretty much all the requirements of a hud. It's my ol' reliable
