Good luck playing with those useless gradients invading on your view.

If you're going to make a complete, wonderful HUD, you should know that Halo has somewhat incredible HUD capabilities. It's not limited to ammo meters and health bars, and not just visor outlines. As you can see, you can have a charge indicator for the Spartan Laser, and even display transitions when changing weapons(Metroid maps).

Halo doesn't really have a limited engine, just a lame physics engine, and it lives in the shadow of the two other games. Doubt you'll be having the targeted enemy's name though. Or... you could just aim your reticule at them and their name will show up in the center or the screen.

Good luck getting it in-game. Also, I haven't tried transparency in the bitmaps themselves, so good luck with those blur and glow effects.

The Blam! engine is limited, its just that clever people with nothing better to do can find ways around it. I think the Splazer charge sprite on the reticule may have been part of the model, but Im not sure.

Get photoshop or gimp or something. Paint cannot do it.

Replace the weapon name with the weapon icon instead.

Does the red thing around the enemy name stay there, or go away when you stop targeting him?

Nevertheless the AR ammo display and the PP charge indicator can still be counted as part of the HUD.

This.
To be honest I never liked the HUD design much, but it's better than the "OMG REAL-LIEF OPAQUE VISOR OUTLIEN" ones that block your view. I am a bit obsessed with keeping the HUD-size down to a minimum though.

But you're thinking outside the bun and I like that.

Indeed. First HUD I've seen in a long time that isn't a cut and dry h3 copy.

Anything that's original content gets an instant rep-boost.

Glow needs to be toned down a bit but other than that good stuff

srry for the bump, but I REALLY need those tags, and because of immature rotten flamers, then thread was closed, listen, if you can make the tags, just PM me, I don't want all the posts of criticism!
