Way to disable HL2 HUD auto-hide?

A Forum Thread for Half-Life 2

Help please!!! is there a way to disable the HUD from auto hiding? This is really annoying while switching weapons, specially in heavy fights.

I would like the hud to be more like the one in Half-Life 1 or Black Mesa; THEY DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY DISAPPEAR THE HUD!

    You mean the weapon switchers right? In half life one you had to click on a weapon to get the switcher interface to go away, in half life 2 they streamlined it so it wouldn't get in the way.

    I don't think there is a way to alter that without heavy advanced-level coding/hacking, its probably hard-wired into the game's code.
