Player Health and ID

 
 

 
Standard_ID_Icons
Text for Player ID and health: To change the size of the text for the Player ID, go to the clientscheme.res file, find the following section around line 878…
Code:
      }
        "TargetID"
        {
            "1"
            {
                "name"        "Trebuchet MS"
                "tall"        "20"
                "weight"    "900"
                "range"        "0x0000 0x007F"    //    Basic Latin
                "antialias" "1"
                "additive"    "0"
            }
      }
Font type: Changes can be made by the font... "name"        "Trebuchet MS" change "Trebuchet MS" to another type like "Verdana".
 
Custom_ID_IconsFont Size: Change "tall" "20" to "tall" "14" , the text size will lower.

Font Weight: "weight" adjusts the bold setting, range of this setting is "0" - "1000".

Font enhancements: Other settings can be added to make these stand out or fade but in this group you can only have one selected, the first one read will be set...

  • "outline"           "1"   -  Text edges will have a outline of black 
  • "dropshadow"   "1"   -  Text edges on the lower part will have a black outline
  • "additive"         "1"    -  Text will have a white wash making the color pastel looking
  • "antialias"        "1"    -  Text edges will be anti-aliased
  • "underline"       "1"   -  Text will be underlined
  • "symbol"          "1"   -   Set for symbol font like Marlett, see line 830 in clientsheme.res

I like them a little smaller so I use this....

Code:
     }
        "TargetID"
        {
            "1"
            {
                "name"        "Trebuchet MS"
                "tall"        "14" //"20"
                "weight"    "900"
                "range"        "0x0000 0x007F"    //    Basic Latin
                "antialias" "1"            
                "additive"    "0"
            }
        }

 


 

CVARS for Player ID and health: You can turn these off if you like, it is the command "hud_centerid" ( def. "1" = on "0" = Off) . You can also turn this off via the game menu "Options" - "Multiplayer" - "Advanced" Button - untick "Center Player names" Press OK and apply.
