Is there anyway to change the location of the gametype icons on screen:



the bitmaps are:

ui\shell\bitmaps\team_background

ui\shell\bitmaps\team_icon_ctf ...etc


They are referenced by ui_tags_loaded_multiplayer_scenario_type.tag_collection but there are no options in that tag to change the coordinates of those ui elements.

While working on FTW2, Pepsi/Pepsi711 told me he spent ages looking for values that controlled the UI position of those icons, and had others look for it as well. Final answer was that it was something the engine controlled when a multiplayer map was loaded.

Can't say if that's true or not. Take it as an old myth.

Just delete the bitmaps, it should get rid of them.

There are a number of HUD-related tag types, including HUD Globals, Weapon HUD Interface, and Grenade HUD Interface. It is difficult to find the appropriate tags, so try opening a duplicated Halo PC .map file in Eschaton and experimenting with that.
