HUD Background Replacement -- Numbers 1-5
Author: Ncyphe (http://www.fpsbanana.com/members/271109)
Description: A set of HUD backgrounds featuring the numbers 1 through 5 for blu team, red team, and neutral control points. These huds utilize the original "_locked" textures that shipped with TF2.
Install: Just extract the contents of the ".rar" into you "Team Fortress 2/tf/materials" directory.
Notes about install: When you extract the files, you will find a folder named "ncyphex1." This was a personal decision to make sure I don't cause y'all to accidentally over-wright another set of icons. Changing this filename will cause a lot of the files to not work correctly. There are 5 vtf's for blu, red, and neutral, along with 15 vmt's. The reason there are more .vmt's is due to redundancy prevention. The "locked" texture for all the HUDS (and yes, each one had to have a specially named 'locked' material) is linked to the original "locked" materials that shipped with TF2, reducing the file size drastically.
How to use: Once the files are properly extracted, you can browse the materials browser and find them (search for "ncyphex" to quickly bring them all up). Slap down a controlpoint entity and set the appropriate "hudbackground" fields (not overlays) to the appropriate material hud you wish to use.
Recomendation: Since joining a server usually only causes the clients to only download the maps, sometimes, I'd recommend using a program like "bspzip" to merge these files into the bsp. It may cause the .bsp to be a little bigger than normal, but it will ensure that everyone will properly see the HUD.
Note: These huds were backwards engineered from the original HUDs that shipped with TF2. Original design is accredited to Valve.
Note 2: I would have included this with GUI's, but it seems that the GUI section is being used for Menu backgrounds O.o Since this is classified as a material, I posted it here. If a mod believes this does not belong here, feel free to move it.
As alway, if you have any questions, shout. I'd be glad to update this if I confused people.
