Which I abbreviate as HRHH.

Simply put, the goal of this project is to make a faithful recreation of the original Halo CE HUD in a higher resolution format. The original HUD was designed for a very low screen resolution, so the source files are not particularly detailed. These days, most of us use full HD or higher screen resolutions, and the original HUD has shown its age.

I aim to fix this and release it when it's done.

pix (I hope this image host website works)




Here I have a 4x render of my tracing, the original xbox bitmaps in PS (and modified to have the color) and a 1x scale of my tracing.


I have also re-created the split-screen variant of the HUD:


in-game


Normally, this is what you would see if you used Chimera's split-screen HUD command


And now you will see this:

I am not ashamed to admit that I spent hours on each shields variant. I had to make sure my tracing was as close as humanly possible to the originals at 1x. Sure, anyone can trace it really quick but it takes some work to get it right.


Anyway, if you wish to stay updated join Matt and I's shared Discord server: https://discord.gg/XQBs2vA I got more pics in there, I'm not sure how long these images will last.


EDIT: For reference, this is what I had to work with when tracing

Yes it did. It also came with terrible voice acting that made me want to kill myself.
