Not sure if any of you have done this but you can change the actual font using whistlers HUD? In the font folder. The various fonts are under 'arial8....etc' just install a different font and add the new entry using notepad/wordpad.
Simple explanation but easy to figure out i can elaborate if needed.

By the way, for the people who couldn't get it to work/had to use ctrl+f1 to cycle through the views to see the hud, I had this problem in my VP install, but it went away when I turned Intro=0 in the conf.ini (so the 3d intro with the aircraft carrier doesn't play). Not sure why this stops the mod working but that seems to be it.

Confirmed! That is the problem some folk were having! I'll see if I can somehow solve it, otherwise I will highlight the issue in the first post. Thanks Ettles!!! There will be a maintenance update in the near future.

In order to bring 46 to modern standards I searched online and tried many (many) different fonts. I wanted a contemporary HUD. Font choices are endless but due to the nature of the old engine not a single one worked. Arial gets blamed for many reasons but there is something about this sans typeface and IL-2... It just works here. If any of you ever come across a better/sexier GUI/HUD font please share your findings!


By the way, thanks for the nice comments Treetop64, KingTiger503 & markino :)

I read the first post ("It has not been tested in other game mode, version or super mod") ... but maybe anyone tried it in HSFX 7.02 or HSFX 7.03 ?

Hi Whistler
I have run into a problem with your HUD Mod, I have been plagued by micro pauses recently during game play. The whole screen freezes for 2-5 secs except the propellors which keep turning. I tried several things but then thought I would try disabling your Mod - voila! The freezes have stopped? I use CUP 4.12.2m - any idea what this could be?

Hi PO_MAK,

I don't have CUP. There probably is a bug, there probably isn't. You modified the folder structure I provide to make it work with CUP and if you missed one single file you can get all sort of errors... Let's first confirm NG-HUD is properly installed. I will send you a v2.7 ready for CUP and we'll see if things improve.

Regards,

Hi Whistler
I tried your CUP version but still the same? The only clue is these lines repeated over and over in my error.log?

[Jul 4, 2018 8:23:49 AM] -------------- END log session

I've tried it on several maps and planes but still the same - the screen and all aircraft freeze but everything else carries on ie, props spin, chat continues, distance markers still countdown on AI...lasts about 2-5 secs then the game jumps to where it should have been. This recurs constantly every one or two minutes?
Disabling your larger 54kb classfile solves the problem.

Cheers
Mick
