Hiding Damage Output
From Rabbi Blog
A few months back I did a video collage for a gaming group contest and one of the issues I dealt with was seeing the damage output on screen from Infected attacks.
I went to the Steam Forums to look around and even posted asking the question to the group. I do not miss public forums one bit.
sv_cheats 1 hidehud 4 cl_drawhud 0 cam_command 1 cam_idealdist 150 hide_message_panel 1
hidehud 4 *should* be hiding this, but obviously it is not.
I poked around for a few days, read this thread and came up with the following:
- Browse to "[installdir]\Steam\steamapps\common\left 4 dead\left4dead\resource\UI"
- Open HudAchievementFloatingNumber.Res
- Set visible to "0"
Apparently that did the job.
The end result is here. I probably won't do this sort of thing again, though this ended up in receiving a free copy of Left4Dead2.
