Reworked HUD Icons - A GUI Mod for Black Mesa

Updates

Schmung's MP5 7y
  • - Added an icon for the new animations IIopn released
Yes, I did dream that too.
Ganryu's M16A4 7y 5.6 8y 5.5 8y New Crossbow 8y

New weapon/ammo/item icons.

**If you prefer to keep the game as vanilla as possible but still have accurate weapon icons, try giving Zeroize0's ["Weapon selection hud fix"](http://blackmesa.gamebanana.com/skins/121609 "Weapon selection hud fixed") a try.** I can understand why the default icons were so simple now that I've tried to make them myself. It's hard to judge what size of image will be distorted into a pixel-y mess, not to mention keep the file size down, so I don't blame the dev team for just using the concepts as icons. The icons I made for Iiopn's releases were kind of rush jobs, and some guy commented about how they didn't match the defaults, so I decided to make these and redo the old ones too. I also tried redoing the ammo icons in a way so that they weren't pixelated, but unfortunately the way the game downsizes the images, in addition to the scanline hud overlay, creates pixelation no matter what. If someone can make better ammo icons that'd be cool. _**As an added bonus I decided to upload some extra files**_ **[Revamp Rimlighting.rar](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/74701865/Revamp%20Rimlighting.rar "Revamp Rimlighting.rar")** Vanilla rimlighting for the new revamp models. (This will also tone down the spas' reflections, add reflections to the m9, deagle, and crowbar, aswell as add the missing gloss map to m4tl0ck and thanez' new HEV arms) **INCLUDES NEW NORMALS FOR SCHMUNG'S MP5 EOD** If you don't know what rimlighting is, it's a newer source engine feature that first appeared in tf2 and the left 4 dead games. It uses the phong mask to create a backlight when a model is held to a light source and also works as an outdoor overhead lighting effect- simulating an environment tint from the sky when you're outside, and any other environment lighting in the area. Hypothetically you could substitute static world lighting on skins and instead just use this feature. While it seems like a great idea, the truth is it was valve's way of attempting to cover the source engine's age in comparison to the newer next gen engines out today. For a visual comparison there are images included in the download. **[Lower volume BMS music.zip](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/74701865/BMS%20not%20so%20fucking%20loud%20music.zip "Not so fucking loud BMS music.zip")** If you haven't noticed, the music in black mesa is loud as hell and the music volume slider doesn't do squat. These are music files with their volume level halved, and in a vorbis format. (if a moderator needs to remove this link for whatever reason, feel free to.) **[Black Mesa Sound Script Fix.zip](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/74701865/BMS%20Sound%20Script%20Cleanup.zip "BMS Sound Script Cleanup.zip")** A couple of black mesa scripts cause sounds to overlap each other and cut each other off, these scripts will fix those problems as well as keep the HEV weapon select blips from cutting off the weapon reloading sounds. **[Vanilla Black Mesa Files.zip](https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/74701865/default%20black%20mesa%20content.zip "default black mesa content.zip")** The original files for the weapons, their textures, game scripts, and sounds. Save this somewhere so if you ever need to go back to the default you won't have to redownload the entire game.

  • I cri that these are for the Revamp pack. I would love to use the pack, but my BMS mod crashes to desktop with either "Failed to load lump 8", "Unable to lock vertex buffer in CMeshDX8" engine errors or the generic "hl2.exe has stopped working" with Event Viewer showing the blame on various DLLs that are not corrupted.

    I'll say this now: I did every obvious solution to no dice. The crashes happen very frequently in Surface Tension.

    I decided to post here because I'm not hearing anything from the creators of the Revamp pack. Sorry if that's against the rules.

    Love these icons. Also a big thanks for making icons for the Re-Animation pack. Only the pixelated stuff is a bit annoying but that's the game's fault.

    > **Posted by PCGameCrazy** > Your HUD icons mod keeps getting better and better. Thanks a lot. Everytime I look back at these I get OCD. The last things I plan to change are the crossbow and grenade launcher ammo icons, but I guess I'll wait until I get my hands on IIopn's mp5

  • Hi Acoma. Nice job with the HUD icons. They look a lot better than the ones the Black Mesa Devs made. Keep up the good work.
