Hit Numbers

Adds damage indicators whenever you hurt something.
This is a serverside (or singleplayer) addon. The server must have this addon installed in order to work in multiplayer.

Console Commands:

Are the Hit Numbers too obnoxious or in the way?

Try some of these tips to fine-tune them:

- Use sv_hitnums_scale to modify the size of the indicators.
- Set sv_hitnums_alpha to a low number, like 0.3 - 0.5 so you can see through them easier.
- Include sv_hitnums_font_additive 1 in your server's server.cfg file to enable additive[] rendering.

ATTN: Server Admins and/or Developers:

I have uploaded the code to GitHub. You may freely modify for your own needs and addons.
However, this does NOT mean you can republish this (original) addon.
Please credit the original author of this addon by linking back to this page. Thank you.

Help! It's not working!!!

Here are some considerations and things you can do to try to fix it:

- Check the console for errors related to Hit Numbers. Post the error in the comments along with what you were doing to cause the error.

- If you're in singleplayer or the server owner, make sure the console command sv_hitnums_enable is set to 1.

- Disable all other addons except for Hit Numbers. If it's working as intended, another addon or addons (probably poorly written) is causing a conflict. You can then start re-enabling chunks of addons at a time, until it stops working again and you can pinpoint the offending addon.

- "It's only working with some guns!" Hit Numbers only listens for damage using standard Source engine methods (via GM:EntityTakeDamage). Some addons do not report damage in this way and sometimes implement their own method of applying damage to a character or entity. This means that Hit Numbers does not have a proper way of showing that damage!

- Please explain in detail what is happening in the comments. Be descriptive. Only saying "It's not working." is too vague and unhelpful, and I will likely not reply.

@Undercooked, delete the settings.txt file in the folder "steamapps\common\garrysmod\garrysmod\data\hitnumbers". next time you launch a game it will recreate a default settings file in its place

If you're still using the same workshop cache as before, then yeah the settings will be the same. You might need to clear your cache and start over. Other addon's settings will be affected though.

A while ago, I'd say a year or so, I downloaded this mod and unfortunately butchered the settings to the point where the hit numbers were literally unreadable. I recently re-downloaded it, and the settings I made a while back were still in effect. If there is any way to reset the numbers back to default, please let me know. Thanks!
