used to load a custom hud from a .hud file contained in a pk3 file. Also able to "/loadhud ?" to show a list of available huds, "/loadhud blank" to load a blank hud, or "/loadhud" to load the default ET hud. When loading a hud, the default ET is loaded first, then the custom HUD overwrites any values specified. So if a HUD element isn't specifically disabled in a custom HUD, it will be in ET default position
Used to edit the hud in realtime. Can also be used to script a hud so that server admins don't have to package .hud files into pk3

format: /edithud elementName [value1] [value2] . . . . [valueX]

Current elementNames and (values) are as follows:

  • ammocount (x, y, scale)
  • chargebar (x, y, width)
  • compass (x, y, size)
  • upperright (y)
  • fireteam (x, y, width)
  • flagcov (x, y)
  • head (x, y, width, height)
  • healthbar (x, y, width)
  • healthtext (x, y, scale)
  • lagometer (x, y)
  • overheat (x, y, width, height)
  • skillbox1 (x, y, size)
  • skillbox2 (x, y, size)
  • skillbox3 (x, y, size)
  • skillpic1 (x, y, size)
  • skillpic2 (x, y, size)
  • skillpic3 (x, y, size)
  • skilltext1 (x, y, scale)
  • skilltext2 (x, y, scale)
  • skilltext3 (x, y, scale)
  • staminabar (x, y, width)
  • weaponcard (x, y, size)
  • xptext (x, y, scale)
  • cpmtext (x, y, scale)
  • chattext (x, y, scale)
  • votefttext (x, y)
  • livesleft (x, y)

All items except skilltextX are part of the original ET hud. skillTextX is a textual representation of the xp levels, i.e. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4. The skill[box,pic,text] elements correspond as follows, 1 = class specific skills, 2 = battle sense, 3 = light weapons

Default scale values, where used, is 25 in the default ET hud.

upperright represents the spawn counter/game timer, clock, FPS normally displayed on the right side of the screen.

(x,y) are based on a 640 x 480 scale, regardless of the actual screen resolution that ET is running. Therefore (0,0) is upper left, (640,480) is lower right and (320, 240) is crosshairs

To disable an element entirely, set the first value to -1. Currently votefttext CANNOT be disabled

Autoexec Files

The silEnT client now has the ability to automatically execute certain config (*.cfg) files upon certain events:

autoexec_allies.cfg, autoexec_axis.cfg, autoexec_spectator.cfg

Executed when you join a team (or become a spectator)

autoexec_<mapname>.cfg, autoexec_default.cfg

Executed when the map switches to <mapname>. autoexec_default.cfg is always executed after the autoexec_<mapname>.cfg file.

autoexec_soldier.cfg, autoexec_medic.cfg, autoexec_engineer.cfg, autoexec_fieldops.cfg, autoexec_covertops.cfg

Executed when you switch classes

Please note that if any of these files do not exist they simply will not be executed, there will not be any error messages

Also note that these filenames are casesensitive on linux
