Hey Folks,

Looking to take a bunch of portfolio shots of my maps, how do I disable the HUD?

doesnt matter to me if it is a console, menu or texture change, I just want the entire thing (health, siege icons, timer, gold) gone.

So I managed to move the gold, but I assigned the size '0.00' to it and it's still there.
Explicit instructions would be appreciated :smile:

The other thing that might be useful is if you already have the .TXT files configured, you could send them and I could just overwrite mine!
 
Remember not to multipost; just edit your messages if you have something to add.

Generally, the fastest way (if you have only Warband Native-compatible scenes to showcase) is to use my mod (https://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php?threads/varena-neogk.447294/) in which I allowed to disable the HUD. If you know how, you can add your .sco files to the module and replace some scenes.txt entries in order to see your works in Varena NeoGK.

If you take the longer route (compatible with all M&B engine titles such as WFaS), you must:
  1. know the basics of modding to use the Module System and delete all HUD MP presentations,
  2. alter the game_variables.txt file to get rid of some HUD elements (game_ui prefix) by tweaking their scale,
  3. use OpenBRF to access the core_ui_meshes.brf file to learn about some meshes/ materials and their textures to be modified (by erasing them) if you still have some HUD elements on the screen.

You can compare yours with ones you can find in my module, if you want of course.

Thanks a bunch :smile:
I am doing some Warband, some WFAS.
As to the module system, in what part will I find the HUD MP parts to delete?
I haven't used it before.
Thank you for the valuable & helpful answers so far!

If you want to make screenshots only use edit mode. Ctrl+E - to enter edit mode. H - to hide HUD. Also you can pause game <Ctrl+F11> with cheat enabled.

In module_presentations.py delete scripts whose names refer to MP such as score, timer and so on.

You are welcome!

In Edit Mode only presentations can be hidden; tweaking game_variables.txt would be needed. @Aldarith, you can take this shorter route if you do not know modding (you can store original values behind a hashtag if you would want to revert stuff in the future).
