HUD Log moved to bottom right corner of the screen
« on: May 20, 2014, 11:42:35 AM »

Hi Folks,

As per request by steven197106, please find here the first Beta of a mod which is meant to move the HUD Log to the bottom right corner of the screen.
Additionally, as suggested by The Radge, you can change the number of log lines to be displayed (default is 3).
For detailed instructions please see readme.txt:

Code: [Select]
******************************************************************************************************************
*                                   Installation Instructions:                                                   *
******************************************************************************************************************


1.) Copying of files (depending on your game version):

1a.) Modact 5 and HSFX 7 users (IL-2 4.12)   :   Extract the contents of this mod to the "#SAS" folder of your
                                                 game and proceed with step 2.)
                                                 
1b.) Other Game Versions                     :   We're sorry but other game versions but Modact 5 or HSFX 7
                                                 are currently unsupported.

2.) (Optionally):
    Open conf.ini (you find this file in your IL-2 Game Folder).
    Add or edit the following section:
   
    [Mods]
    HUDLogLines=<Maximum Number of HUD Log Lines, default is "3">
    HUDLogColor1=<AABBGGRR>
    HUDLogColor2=<AABBGGRR>
    HUDLogBottomColor1=<AABBGGRR>
    HUDLogBottomColor2=<AABBGGRR>

    Where "<AABBGGRR>" represents an inverted RGBA value in hexadecimal notation,
    meaning that the first two characters define the transparency level reaching from 00 (transparent)
    to FF (opaque), the next two characters define the blue portion of the color etc.
    "HUDLogColor1" is the initial color of "normal" log messages, per default this is
    opaque white (FFFFFFFF).
    "HUDLogColor2" is the final color of "normal" log messages, per default this is
    opaque blue (FFFF0000).
    "HUDLogBottomColor1" is the initial color of "bottom" log messages (usually WEP engagement), per
    default this is opaque red (FF0000FF)
    "HUDLogBottomColor2" is the final color of "bottom" log messages (usually WEP engagement), per
    default this is opaque yellow (FF00FFFF)
   
    The default values would be this:

    [Mods]
    HUDLogLines=3
    HUDLogColor1=FFFFFFFF
    HUDLogColor2=FFFF0000
    HUDLogBottomColor1=FF0000FF
    HUDLogBottomColor2=FF00FFFF

******************************************************************************************************************

This mod moves the HUD to the bottom right edge of the screen.

it works well, although i had to ensure this loaded above Pablo's Visual Mod, for it to take effect.
i see all 4 classfiles are shared by Pablo's mod, is there any functionality of his mod affected by this, that you're aware of, Mike"

I think you're rather referring to PAL's "HUD Config with BombSight Assist", since the "3DStereo and Visual MOD" doesn't have these files.
Regarding the "HUD Config with BombSight Assist" mod you will lose all it's functionality when using this mod.

no Mike, i'm referring to a mod named '00_PAL_VisualMOD8-v4122'
possibly these mods were incorporated at some point, but i have what i think is the latest version, and the shared classes are all in this one.
i don't have a separate mod folder for HUD Config with BombSight Assist

edit: link to mod i have: http://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php?topic=37311.0

Forgive my ignorance but: The classes aren't part of that mod.
