HUD and Blood

hud_and_blood_v11.zip —


Version 1.1 of Pseudoant's HUD and Blood mod has been released! In this version, the stamina bar is back, the HUD is re-designed, and other various fixes. It's also compatible with the Transport mod; when you step into a vehicle, the armor indicator turns into the vehicle health meter.

Overall, a very interesting follow-up to an already nice mod. :)




HUD & Blood MOD v1.1 (for STALKER v1.0001)

This is a small mod changes the design of HUD and adds new blood effects.
My English is not good, so please check preview jpgs.

	v1.1 -----------------------------------------------
          - Stamina bar is back
          - HUD design changed
          - Very minor fixes
          - Now compatible with Balnazzar's Transport Mod
            (When you get into the vehicle, the armor Indicator turn into the car health indicator)

	v1.0 -----------------------------------------------
          - HUD elements are relocated to get a clear view.
          - The stance icons are only displayed while you are crouching/deep crouching.
          - Deleted unnecessary HUD elements (stamina bar, noise meter, floppy disk icon etc..)
          - Smaller crosshair
          - No crosshair (a white circle) while you unarmed
          - Modified blood puff (hit effects)
          - Bigger blood wall marks (and more texture variations. these are made from unused STALKER textures)
          - Compatible with all screen resolutions (I hope so..)

	Where is the noise meter?
	 - I deleted it. I think that is useless.
	Why did you combine 2 different mods?
	 - Both mods modify the same file (system.ltx), so I packed them for easy installation.
	   You can separate them easily.

	1. Copy all files from "gamedata" into;
	   ..\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\gamedata

	2. (I'm not sure whether this procedure is required or not)
	   Open "..\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\fsgame.ltx" with a text editor.
	   Change the second line to;
	   $game_data$   		= true|		true|	$fs_root$|		gamedata\

	3. No need to restart the game from beginning. Just load your save data.


	Overwrite old files with new one.
[Separate install]

	If you want new blood effects only:
          1. Extract my mod and open the folder named "gamedata"
          2. Delete 2 folders named "..\config\ui" and "..\textures\ui"
          3. Open "..\config\system.ltx" with a text editor and go to the line 183.
             Then change "cross_length = 0.002" to "cross_length = 0.015" (default value).
          4. Install

	If you want new HUD only:
          1. Extract my mod and open the folder named "gamedata"
          2. Delete 2 folders named "..\texutures\pfx" and "..\textures\wm"
          3. Open "..\config\system.ltx" with a text editor, go to the [bloody_marks] section (line 156-161).
             Then change values as follows (default values).
	          wallmarks = wmwm_blood_1,wmwm_blood_2,wmwm_blood_3
	          dist = 2.0 ;2.4 
	          max_size = 0.4 ;0.3
	          min_size = 0.06
	          nominal_hit = 0.5
          4. Install

[Known Problems]

	Single Player: None

	Multi Player: Since this mod changes a few config files, you can't connect unmodded server with this mod installed. 
		When you want to play multiplayer, rename the following folder(like "@gamedata");
		"..\Program Files\THQ\S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl\gamedata".
		If you do this, all of the custom stuffs you installed will be temporary disabled.
		You should re-rename the folder to "gamedata" after playing.
[Using with another mods]

	* As far as I know, this mod works with 90% of recently released mods.
	* If you want to test another blood effects mod, just overwrite my textures with one you want to use.

	I edited "..\gamedata\config\system.ltx" to get a smaller crosshair and bigger blood effects.
	This can be a cause of problems when using with another mod modifyng "system.ltx".
	In that case, delete my "system.ltx" and do the following.

	1. Open system.ltx from the mod you want to use (or currently using) with a text editor.
	2. Change line 156-161 as follows.

		wallmarks			= wm\wm_blood_1,wm\wm_blood_2,wm\wm_blood_3,wm\wm_blood_4,wm\wm_blood_5,wm\wm_blood_6
		dist				= 4.0	;2.0 ;2.4	
		max_size			= 0.5   ;0.4 ;0.3
		min_size			= 0.1   ;0.06
		nominal_hit			= 0.5   ;0.5

	3. Go to the line 183. Change "cross_length = 0.015" to "cross_length = 0.002".
	4. Install all of the my files except "system.ltx". 

	I learned how to edit "system.ltx" from Huztle's Stalker Mod. Thank you!
	Stalker Files, thank you for hosting my files. 
	Long live STALKER!!
