WHAT IT DOES: This very simple script comes in two flavors. (Only use one version.)

Auto-Hide Version: Automatically hides the radar + health/armor bars. Press and hold the Tab key to unhide. This version is ideal for HUD-free gameplay.

Toggle Version: Only hides/unhides the radar + health/armor bars when you press Tab. This version is ideal for temporarily hiding the radar while taking screenshots or recording videos.


HOW TO INSTALL: This is a script for HazardX's .NET scripthook. Just place the .cs file in the 'scripts' folder of the .NET scripthook.


Auto-Hide Version DOWNLOAD
Toggle Version DOWNLOAD


----------------

Known bugs:
- The game constantly unhides the radar in most vehicle camera views, after using a rifle scope, taking a taxi ride, and some other situations. It'll try to re-hide itself every 2 seconds.

Tip: this script is uncompiled, which means you can open it and edit it yourself. For example, you could change Tab to some other key, or you could make the radar start out hidden when the game loads.

Change log:
v1.2
- Converted the script to C#
- Radar now tries to re-hide itself every 2 seconds (workaround for the radar being unhidden by the game)
- Radar now unhides when your health gets low
- The auto-hide version no longer acts like the toggle version when in vehicles
- Changed version numbering scheme
v1.1b
- Added better documentation on how to change Tab to a different key
v1.1
- Slight optimization, added ability to toggle radar in some vehicle camera views

----------------


This is just a little feature that I wanted in my game to hide the HUD when I don't need it. I haven't seen a script around here that does this, so I thought I'd post it in case anyone else wants this feature for their game. It's especially nice in first person. icon14.gif

This is just a little feature that I wanted in my game. I thought I might be able to code it, so I gave it a shot. I'm a programming noob but the script seems to work. If someone more experienced can optimize it better, you're welcome to do so.

The benefit of this script is that it hides both the radar and the health bars, and only when on foot. When you get into a vehicle, the radar comes back. Also you can hold Tab to display the radar on foot.

it's a little late to be saying this, but when you're in your vehicle, the radar shows regardless of whether you have set it to remain hidden. also, when you get out of the vehicle, the radar still shows, even if you had it turned off on foot previously. there is an option under display for removing the radar already in the game, but unfortunately it keeps your health visible. i would like it off completely, or maybe having it display only in cars that have that fancy spoken GPS system.

Yeah, that problem is caused by the game forcing the radar to unhide when you're in a car. I think all the vehicle camera views are affected, except the hood cam. This game behavior seems to be unfixable, so the radar will always show in vehicles unless you use the hood cam (or the First Person mod).

This same problem also affects aiming with a sniper scope.

Edit: A new version is in the first post now.

Changes in v1.2
- Converted the script to C#
- Radar now tries to re-hide itself every 2 seconds (workaround for the radar being unhidden by the game)
- Radar now unhides when your health gets low
- The auto-hide version no longer acts like the toggle version when in vehicles
- Changed version numbering scheme

Oops, the toggle version had a little mistake: I use the numpad + key myself, and I forgot to change it back to Tab before uploading.

To the 4 people who already downloaded it, you can easily fix it yourself if you want, just by searching for "Add" and changing it to whichever key you want. Or you can just re-download it.
