Description
An updated version of "my" HUD.
Resolution higher than 800x600 is recommended.
                                                 
                                                         IMPORTANT NOTE    
This addon is using custom font, in order for it to display properly you must reload game fonts every time you launch it. There are several ways to do this.

first method (automatic):

 1.  Subscribe to this addon.
 2.  Launch the game.
 3.  Wait for the addon to finish downloading.
 4.  Close the game.
 5.  Open your Steam Library.
 6.  Locate Left 4 Dead 2.
 7.  Right click on it.
 8.  Properties.
 9.  Local Files.
10. Browse local files...
11. Open left4dead2 folder, then open addons, then workshop.
12. Cut 1367690814.vpk from the workshop folder and paste it into the addons folder.
13. Unsubscribe from this addon.
14. Add these lines to your autoexec.cfg:
mat_setvideomode x y 1
mat_setvideomode x y 0


Replace x (width) and y (height) to match your desired resolution.

Example:
mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 1 // Changes resolution to 1920x1080, windowed
mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 0 // Changes resolution to 1920x1080, full-screen

If you're playing in windowed mode: replace 1 with 0 and 0 with 1.

Example:
mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 0 // Changes resolution to 1920x1080, full-screen
mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 1 // Changes resolution to 1920x1080, windowed

If you're playing in windowed borderless mode, add another 1 at the end of the second line.

Example:
mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 0 // Changes resolution to 1920x1080, full-screen
mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 1 1 // Changes resolution to 1920x1080, windowed borderless

After this, font will be loaded automatically on every game startup.

another method (manual):

1. Open the game.
2. Wait for all of your addons to load.
3. Open the console.
4. Type mat_setvideomode x y 1;mat_setvideomode x y 0
Replace x (width) and y (height) to match your desired resolution.
e.g. mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 1;mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 0
If you're playing in windowed mode: replace 1 with 0 and 0 with 1.
e.g. mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 0;mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 1
and if you're playing in windowed borderless mode, add another 1 at the end.
e.g. mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 0;mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 1 1

You can also add a bind for this into your autoexec.cfg to make the process less tedious:
alias "loadhudfont" "mat_setvideomode x y 1;mat_setvideomode x y 0"
bind "<key>" "loadhudfont"

Example:
alias "loadhudfont" "mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 1;mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 0"
bind "l" "loadhudfont"

To load the font, press your desired key whilst in-game, not on the main menu screen.

Again. If you're playing in windowed mode: replace 1 with 0 and 0 with 1.
And if you want to make it borderless, add another 1 at the end of the second line.

Windowed mode example:
alias "loadhudfont" "mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 0;mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 1"
bind "l" "loadhudfont"

Windowed borderless:
alias "loadhudfont" "mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 0;mat_setvideomode 1920 1080 1 1"
bind "l" "loadhudfont"

another method (manual):

1. Open the game.
2. Wait for all of your addons to load.
3. Go to Options.
4. Video.
5. Display mode.
6. Change it to "windowed" if you're a playing in full-screen or change it to "full-screen" if you're playing in windowed/windowed borderless mode.
7. Change it back.


Also, make sure you don't have any other hud/font addons enabled.
It is highly recommended to place this addon at the top of your load order.

                                                              CHANGELOG   
1. New items/weapons panel with larger ammo font.
2. Added map timer.
3. Added max, average and current velocity counters.
4. Added item icons for incapacitated teammates.
5. Added Urik's custom crosshair support. This HUD is now compatible with Urik's, SCHISM and other crosshairs, created with crosshair support addon in mind.
6. Lowered the chat, now text doesn't overlap with "You ded" black bar at the top.
7. Made chat box background darker.
