HUD Information


Made by a sniper main, for sniper mains.
Seven years.

I made this HUD from the bones of KNHUD during my time as a Sniper in UGC, and decided to share it. Now has derivative elements from eveHUD, rayshud, OMPhud, and Gam3nHUD. The main theme is transparency and lack of backgrounds, with secondary importance placed on being in the focus area for snipers, at the center of the screen, as well as lots of included customization and easily edited colors.

Closed captions courtesy of Clovervidia are included with the HUD.

Loads of customization, from colors to overrides, alternate main menus, hitmarkers, crosshairs, scoreboard, and if you have an idea for a new one, please do tell me.

More screenshots here.

Steam Group, join for updates.

Discord Server, the best place to get help quickly or to share and idea with me.

I can't see health and ammo

Jötunn posted on 09-07-2016, 03:30 PM

I am aware of the bug, I asked Sinders about it. He says that it is a random bug that comes and goes, and is basically impossible to be recreated on the developer's end. I would say try a total HUD reinstall, failing that, redownload, failing that, I will roll back to v412A2 and try to fix A3.

How do I get rid of the crosshair around the crosshair?

Jötunn posted on 09-07-2016, 07:51 PM

There is an override for it. In overrides/hitmarker/Without Hit Marker/scripts, you will find a copy of hudlayout.res. Replace the installed copy of the file in tf/custom/KBNHud/scripts with the override and restart the game.

NVM IGNORE ME IM JUST DUMB, i had to click into the kbn folder and drag it into my custom file, sorry for the trouble.

there was another file inside of the kbn folder that i had to drag.

Yeah, the info.vdf is required for the HUD to activate when the game launches.

i dont like the custom picture when you start up tf2 on loading screen how i make it deafult?

Jötunn posted on 28-07-2016, 01:44 AM

Delete /materials/console. In console are the menu pictures. Without the mod file, they will revert to the usual pl_upward image.

TheRealEpsilon posted on 30-07-2016, 05:05 AM

I love the HUD, I have a couple of questions.
1. How do I get the scoreboard like the one in the preview?
2. How do I change the size of the crosshairs?

Jötunn posted on 31-07-2016, 05:01 AM

1. That is an override scoreboard. To get the minimal scoreboard, simply enable minmode. The default one will be a Sixes (6v6) mini board. In the Overrides folder is an option to change that out for the Highlander (9v9) minmode board.

2. That involves changing several entries in ClientScheme.res, font entries specifically. The font size would have to be increased, along with placement changes.

[ FD ] - Panda posted on 31-07-2016, 08:23 PM

Why isn't the circle centered? please help.

Jötunn posted on 02-08-2016, 03:11 AM

Because of your screen resolution. The default setting is centered for 1080p monitors, but everyone has a different screen, and if you have a different resolution, there is a way to fix it, explained in the readme files in the download. If you need any clarification on the instructions given there, add me on steam and I can walk you through it.

You didn't really make a HUD, you made files for a HUD and demanded us to put the shit together for it to work. Too fucking complicated.

Great job! How exactly can I change the MainMenu to look like this one: (from your SS Album - the one I liked most) ?

Hey, how do I remove the closed captions? Thanks

Wuro posted on 27-03-2017, 10:43 PM

I wanted to remove the black ring around the crosshair because it was both distracting, and annoying. I read the instructions to the hud and it talked about moving these random things in the scripts. I have no idea what it's talking about. I've been searching for hours for a good hud, and this was it, but that damn black ring ruins it. I think a video would be better.

Jötunn posted on 28-03-2017, 07:20 AM

@Wuro A video is entirely possible, hell, I may make one for all the stuff in the readme. To answer your question, go to KBNHud-master\Overrides\Hit Marker\Without Hit Marker\scripts\hudlayout.res. Replace the default hudlayout.res file with that one. As for what it changes, it switches a single 0/1 value to 0. At the top of hudlayout.res, there is a code batch called "DefaultHitmarker." The value for the "visible" line is changed from "1" to "0"

RoteKrete posted on 03-04-2017, 07:34 PM

It's corrupt, ZIP won't extract. How far I'm aware, it's possibly a virus, since they're often corrupt. If you didn't add a virus, make sure there is no accidental virus inside the ZIP.

RoteKrete posted on 03-04-2017, 07:37 PM

Hey nvm the virus thing, it probably installed it wrong inside my browser. It's working now after a reinstall. =)

Jötunn posted on 04-04-2017, 02:24 AM

That happens occasionally. GitHub's server may have gone potato for a second and messed up the download stream.

How do you remove the health cross?

Where do I place the ScoreBoard override?

Jötunn posted on 31-03-2018, 11:18 PM

@Lemon ✠ZEF✠
Scoreboard override goes in resource/ui, and replace the existing file.

As I have said to other before, just saying that it doesn't work doesn't really help me to help you. If you can do a little troubleshooting, or try a clean installation of the HUD, that would help.

There is an override for that, look in the Overrides/ Health Indicator folder, and you will get a series of choices between two folders. For just removing the health cross, the path is Health Indicator/Original (Default)/Without Cross/With Team Coloring, and inside there is resource/ui/HudPlayerHealth.res, with the exact setup you want.

Jötunn posted on 04-05-2018, 09:04 PM

@Mr. Rowdy
Look in the user customizations folder, and then the Hit Marker folder. The circle acts as a hitmarker, and can be disabled using this override.

lel posted on 05-05-2018, 11:40 PM

great hud but there is a circle around the crosshair which I noticed really messes with my aim for some reason if there is a way of removing it would love to learn it!

Rin (2) posted on 19-05-2018, 06:15 PM

I've noticed that teammate health doesn't show up when you put your cursor on them. Neither does enemy health when playing Spy or having the solemn vow as Medic.

Jötunn posted on 26-07-2018, 01:21 AM

@lel There is a custom hudlayout.res included with the download in user customizations/hitmarker folder.

@Rin(2) That would be the advanced option to have health floating above teammates. It doesn't quite work with this HUD, and I have tried multiple times to make it work, all have failed, even a total overhaul of the targetID system.

Look in kbnhud/resource/scheme/colors_clientscheme.res. At the top of that file is a series of easy to customize colors. Change the RGB value of "Default Hitmarker base color" to the color values of your choosing.
