Hi guys!

I want to modify my source sdk2013 so that i can change the color of my hud (weaponinventory, ammo etc..) from console. Do you have any idea how to do that? Thx.

    uhhh you don't you actually go to
     clientscheme.txt located in hl2_mod/resources 
    and find a line called.. :
    (BaseSettings)  ------------------> (Don't Worry It's easy to find because it's the first thing you will see)

    you will see everything you need right there.
    And for color settings:


    // base colors

    "Orange""255 176 0 160"

    "OrangeDark""255 176 0 42"

    "OrangeDim""255 176 0 110"

    "OrangeBright""255 176 0 255"

    "LightOrange""188 112 0 128"

    "FadedBGColor""0 0 0 255"

    "OrangeDarker""255 176 0 20"

    "OrangeDarkest""255 176 0 8"

    "Green""28 192 0 140"

    "GreenBright""28 192 0 255"

    "GreenDark""28 192 0 42"

    "Red""192 28 0 140"

    "RedBright""255 28 0 255"

    "RedDark""255 28 0 42"

    "Black""0 0 0 196"

    "TransparentBlack""0 0 0 196"

    "TransparentLightBlack""0 0 0 90"

    "Blank""0 0 0 0"

    "ForTesting""255 0 0 32"

    "ForTesting_Magenta""255 0 255 255"

    "ForTesting_MagentaDim""255 0 255 120"

    Copy these files in a new text file and choose any color from them..

    Thx but I want to change the colors in game from console or from button from whatever but my goal: switching between the HUD colors WITHOUT exiting the game.

    With respect,
