HUD Log moved to bottom right corner of the screen
« on: May 26, 2014, 05:36:09 AM »

Hi Folks,

Resulting from a request by steven197106, The Radge and gauderio, this mod is meant to move the HUD Log to the bottom right corner of the screen.
Furthermore it gives the ability to configure a few additional parameters like max. log lines to be displayed and color values for the log messages.
For detailed instructions please see readme.txt:

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

Sounds really good Mike, shame about being incompatible with VisualMod8 which I just love, it's got so much to it. I believe the essence of what you've done here is going to be part of 4.13 anyway, correct me if I am wrong.

Partly it has been confirmed to be implemented in 4.13, in particular you should be able to select whether the HUD log will be at the bottom or not.
The maximum number of log lines, "fading" of lines instead of sudden disappearing and log color selection have not been reported to be part of 4.13 yet, but let's see what time will tell.

I'm sure Pablo will implement this in further Visual Mod versions as well, the source is available on our development repository and it's well documented so anyone willing to adopt it can easily do so.

Glad I found this! Now is there any way to move the subtitles to the bottom of the screen?
