DOWNLOAD
ACE HUD v2.0.1 - ACE Statbox v1.2

 

REQUIRED

newOpcodes.cleo

 

2-PLAYER SUPPORT

An add-on to for second player is available in development stage, but so far works fine.

Feedbacks and issue reports would be appreciated since i can't test it myself.

ACE-2P v1.3.1 (old version)

 

BUGS AND ISSUES
- Using other HUD mod with this mod might cause glitch or crash

- HUD might not displayed properly in SAMP. Using Modloader or SAMP FXT Fix will solve this problem

- Vehicle Name might crash the game if used with limit adjuster. The cause is hacked DFF limit, which mostly only used in map mods.

- Textures goes behind every other sprites on-screen. While it's not serious, still counts as bug since weapon icons even displayed behind sniper crosshair.

Yooo this is awesome man. But can you provide us a list for all the color ids and the corresponding color? And is it possible to disable the default car name each time we enter a vehicle? I also cant seem to get the ammo/clip counter working lol. Money is also not working for me, using this on SAMP

 

EDIT: nvm it only works in singleplayer :/

Damn, your mods are awesome. Ace HUD works with 4:3 resolutions?

Thanks, man.

 

Yes, Ace HUD works for all screen ratios, but will stretch in-out along with the screen. If config file is configured for 16:9, it would look stretched-in in 4:3 and vice versa.

 

All presets featured (including default) are for 16:9, so you have configure it yourself to make it looks nice in 4:3. Don't forget to backup the config file afterwards, just in case. Or if you want to share it.

Man, nice work. I loved this mod.

 

You can make some inprovments in next version:

- You're using a separated .txd to check weapons icons. Man, use the original weapons icons! It sholdn't be difficult to get them and to put there!

- To be compatible to any widescreens will be perfect! It'll be awesome!

Thanks for the suggestion.

 

I chose separated .txd for weapon icons to make it easier to replace all icons from one txd. Aside of that, i don't know how to load textures outside of model/txd folder or get loaded texture in memory from CLEO script.

 

For other resolution compatibility, its already in to-do list. For now, you have to readjust config to make the preset looks good in other res.

 

Edit: Updated, see below.

Alright, the faster the better. Here's the update.

All preset config files rewrote over, mostly changed PosX and SizeW and added new options. Any old config used would result in stretched-in HUD.

 

AceHUD v1.1

- Now HUD won't stretched in-out with other aspect ratios
- Added new option: ScreenAlign, side of screen used to adjusting to aspect ratios
- Added new elements: 3 custom boxes with adjustable color and transparency (see Compact HUD for example)

 

AceStatbox v1.1

- Now Statbox won't stretched in-out with other aspect ratios
- Added new option: ScreenAlign, side of screen used to adjusting to aspect ratios

Just a reminder Ace HUD is intended to customized freely by users. You're not encouraged to only use the presets, you can always make your own. And if the HUD suddenly got ugly somehow (mods, etc), you can always readjust it yourself as well.

Good job in update!

I think it's all you need to do is to change weapon icons to original icons in each .txd weapon. I suggest to have both options to icons: your type, with ace.txd and with original weapons. And you need to adapt it to possibles added weapons by FLA. If I see something to help I'll talk.

 

Edit.: wanted levels appear and disappear instantly: when you gain levels and you lost them (by a star or pay n' spray for example). A good sugestion to next release!

Though I've found a bug with the breath meter not showing when your vehicle is submerged in the water. And the weapon icon disappears when I do the 'Beat The Cock' submission.

Can someone confirm these bugs on their game?

Nice HUD there. :^:

 

Breath meter is being working on, currently its only shown when player is swimming, not submerged. It will fixed in next update.

 

Weapon icons missing in all race missions, most likely because of race position and timer interface.

There's limitation on loading/drawing textures via SCM. Its discussed somewhere before, but i still have no clue to fix this, unfortunately.

Latest update is working fine but I found a bug as well... When you're gambling in some casino from Las Venturas, the weapon icon is replaced by a poker card. If you want to try by yourself to reproduce this bug... Go and play blackjack.

 

Merry christmas and happy holidays!

Update's here

Config file remains unchanged, only adding new entry.

 

AceHUD v1.2

- Wanted stars now flashing when suspended
- Breath bar now displayed if player submerged instead of swimming
- Added new entry: COLOR_ID, change RGB value of internal color IDs

 

 

About missing and replaced texture bug, its due to texture slot problem from the game itself. Basically new texture 'overwrites' occupied texture slot. CLEO 4.3.7 onwards prevents cleo scripts perform this bug, but not main.scm. Sadly, there's not much i could do with this bug.

There's already a fix for this, but incompatible with CLEO 4.3.7 onwards.

 

Anyway, happy holidays brother!

Another Update!

Config file remains unchanged, only adding new entry. Thanks to Deadstroke for testing out.

 

AceHUD v1.3

- Now Ace HUD accepts icons for custom weapons with few setup in config and txd file
- Added new entry : Weapon.FirstCustomID and Weapon.LastCustomID to register custom weapons
- Typing "ACELOAD" now also reloads txd file
- Displays error message if either config file or txd file missing
- Wanted stars no longer flash if player does not have wanted level
- Breath meter no longer show up if player is in underwater tunnel
- Fix ammo/clip flag problem if ammo is slightly below 10000

 

AceStatbox v1.1.1

- Fix issue with statbox element placement if ScreenAlign is not 0
- Displays error message if config file missing

 

 

 

1.3_ug_A.jpg

1.3_ug_B.jpg

 

 

 

Ace HUD now supports custom weapons, tested in GTA Underground. Here's little preset and model file for it: GTAUG-Icons

 

On another note, SCM threads can only load 128 textures. With 47 icons reserved for default weapons, it means Ace HUD supports up to 81 additional icons. GTA UG already been close enough with 76 additional weapons. So if any weapon pack says "80+ new weapons", well, expect last few weapons won't get its icon from Ace HUD.

Is the size of the elements calculated with the consideration of the screen ratio of the resolution?

If it's not, your HUD is not that good.

 

The HUD should look properly and different resolutions. The circle should never become an elipse.

 

I also have made the CLEO script InterfaceEditor few years ago, which edits the HUD properties.

Yes, since update v1.1 the position and size of HUD is calculated for different resolutions.

Very cool mod good work. The only thing I would suggest are circular bars so they could be fit around radar, or the aiming reticule. Could assign it as health, armor, air, special, ammo in clip, total ammo, and even use it as a speedometer.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've considered circular bars as well, but unsure how i should implement it's customization.

Then again i haven't started yet, so i'll see it myself whenever i got time.

I'm still using the v1.2, if I only replace the script with the latest one (v1.3.1) will work? I don't want to lose my config (INI).
