Ok I followed what you said in the comments and now it works with Weaponpanel :D Nice mod it goes so well with my HD mods and color correction.

Incompatible with WeaponPanel for NeunGui :(

Nevermind, I got it working and finally did it. Thanks for the help.
Juleris Jun 18 @ 2:20pm 
OK, I actually found where my mods were, but, I drag Dust and Dirt and Slim HUD Alternative to vpk and I try to open vpk, and it still doesn't work. It seems to be opening in a .bat format, I think that's the issue. I don't know how to change it though. Is it supposed to be opened as a .bat or on Notepad?

Ah, slight problem, I don't see any of my installed add-ons from the Workshop in my workshop folder. I've seen them there before but they aren't there for some reason. Any suggestions?

I know, below are instructions on how to merge them (so they play nice) into one mod.

It should be fairly simple to merge the mods yourself, all you need is L4D2 authoring tools (in the tools section of the steam library) to unpack/repack mods.


-Head to: [h1]SteamApps\common\Left 4 Dead 2\bin[/h1] ,right click vpk.exe send to desktop.
-Drag each mod onto vpk shortcut.
-Copy "materials" folder from D&D into hud mod's folder.
-Open hud mod's script folder, open hudlayout.res with notepad.
-Insert following code in between overview & hudcommentary:
Red Schism  [author] May 30 @ 5:03am 

Dust&Dirt
{
"ControlName" "ImagePanel"
"fieldName" "dust&dirt"
"xpos" "c-512"
"ypos" "c-256"
"zpos" "c-1000"
"wide" "1024"
"tall" "512"
"pinCorner" "0"
"visible" "1"
"enabled" "1"
"image" "hud/dustanddirt"
"scaleImage" "1"
}


Save, then drag edited mod folder onto vpk shortcut. Done!

Can I request a personal mod? I just need this mod and the conflicted mod to work together.
Red Schism  [author] May 1 @ 2:16pm 
Yes. They both edit the the same file.
Although I think all that it would change is the weapon selection menu by placing it back to default position.
Mr. Moseby May 1 @ 1:30pm 
would it interfere with SlimHUD?
Red Schism  [author] Mar 2 @ 11:46pm 
Unfortunately I don't have an ultrawide monitor so I have no way to work on an properly fitted version of an overlay.
🍎 Mar 2 @ 1:01pm 
Is there any way you can make this fit a 21:9 screen? I tried this mod and only the middle of my screen has the dust effects.

Yeah man! look forward to seeing it.

Hello, Red Schism.
I merged some MODs togheter and I included yours, and I call it "DirtyHUD". I'm thinking about publishing it linking all the mods and crediting all the creators. Can I have your permission to publish it?
MrThirsty247 Sep 22, 2015 @ 11:19am 
To be honest, I hadn't read the comments below and thought it was a general issue, I don't use the mods mentioned so I'm all good. Ace mod mate, adds nice realsim - gritty! 10/10
Elitesune Sep 22, 2015 @ 3:16am 
@MrThirsty247 It's not too much trouble to get them working together with Red's instructions :)
Red Schism  [author] Sep 21, 2015 @ 11:59pm 
There was no issues with the mod.

I was giving her instructions on how to merge this mod with her favorite hud mod.
MrThirsty247 Sep 21, 2015 @ 9:31am 
"Yes, sorry I should have mentioned that.

The Dust & Dirt script should be placed at the bottom, remember to keep it just above the final empty line and end braket ( } ).

Also you can erase the

"Resource/HudLayout.res"
{

as it's redundant in this position."

Has this been fixed - updated before I download??
Elitesune Aug 17, 2015 @ 12:38pm 
I sorted it a little while ago sorry :o thanks for the advice though :)

Still having the issue but all the time now, before it would work for the most part. I only pasted in the script from DD to VHUD and it's at the very top do you think it would helping to have everything for DD at the bottom in the hudlayout.res?
Red Schism  [author] Aug 17, 2015 @ 1:29am 
Both mods edit the same file [scripts\hudlayout.res]. Depending on the load order one mod will override the other causing issues.

You can fix this easily by merging the mods using Left4Dead 2 Authoring Tools and Notepad++.

If you dont know how to do this I'll put some instructions on how to do this down below.
Red Schism  [author] Aug 17, 2015 @ 1:29am 
-Download/Install both programs.

-Open [\Steam\SteamApps\common\Left 4 Dead 2\bin]

-Right Click "vpk.exe" and Send To Desktop (create shortcut)

-Find the Mod you wish to edit (Dust & Dirt and Vert Hud) One at a time, drag onto "vpk.exe shortcut"
(doing this will make a new folder for each containing the unzipped mod)

-Enter [Vert Hud\Scripts] and open "hudlayout.res" with notepad++.
-Do the same for Dust and Dirt.

-Select/Copy all the text from Dust & Dirt ("hudlayout.res") and Paste into Vert Hud's "hudlayout.res".

-Save/Close notepad++

-Lastly drag the "materials" folder from Dust & Dirt into the Vert Hud folder.
-extra/optional step. Open "addoninfo.txt" and rename mod. to Vert Hud + Dust Effect. Save

-Now drag your freshly edited mod folder onto the "vpk.exe shortcut".

-Congratulations! You're done!


Just drop your New Mod into the addons folder in the L4D2 dirctory and run the Game.

This mod bugs with vertical HUD http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=492863131 do you think you can fix that? Sometime the players health bars will go off screen.
-cemon- Aug 1, 2015 @ 2:12pm 
too shame for mod cuz i cant play this great mod with other mods
Puppy Bitch Jul 31, 2015 @ 9:06am 
Thank you, I'll try to make it work with a custom crosshair.
Red Schism  [author] Jul 30, 2015 @ 11:31pm 
[scripts\hudlayout.res]

You'll also need to download "Left4Dead 2 Authoring Tools" in the Library\Tools tab in Steam, to extract/repack .vpk files and Notepad++ to modify "hudlayout.res".
Puppy Bitch Jul 30, 2015 @ 7:20pm 
baddude seems to have fixed the conflicts with other mods merging them togheter and "editing a single file", any clue what file could be?
Juleris Jul 27, 2015 @ 1:55pm 
Wow! Now I can realistically feel like I'm being clawed to death by a Hunter!
sh★z Jul 25, 2015 @ 7:18am 
This mod conflicts with NeunGUI Weapon Panel, any way to fix this? :/
Red Schism  [author] Jul 7, 2015 @ 1:59pm 
Check your mod list for conflicts. Some UI mods will ovewrite this.
doesnt work..please fix
Red Schism  [author] May 4, 2015 @ 1:54am 
Could possibly be caused by a conflict with a Hud mod. You could try to Un-Sub/Re-Sub to see if it gives d&d priority or you can edit the load order in "addonlist.txt" with notepad++.

It's not work it

I have dust and ahes inside my eyes too...
Daddy's Belt Dec 2, 2014 @ 4:00pm 
Is it just me or does this remove all huds, including the default?
baddude1337 Jul 20, 2014 @ 5:13pm 
Here's a pic of the overlay in effect, along with a lens flare mod, skybox mod, hud mod among others. Who says L4D can't look awesome?

Really nice mod. Got it working quite easily with the HUD mod I use by just lumping them all in one VPK and editing a single file.
Classic Oswald Jul 9, 2014 @ 8:44pm 
I really wish it didn't conflict with the "Delux" Halo HUD. That would make for an awesome in-game experience as a Spartan! I don't even know why it conflicts though... I could post the link.
