View Full Version : Show time on HUD
Hello guys, I wanted to know if there is a method to enable a time viewer (showing the windows time) or at least something stop watch like?
You have cl_showpos, fps_max, net_graph etc. etc.
and can show lots of things on the HUD, is there a command or any other way to show a timer?
Thx in advance

I would start by making a new hud element then set it to put a label as gpGlobals->curtime (i think its that) into the paint function

that is frame time. you want to include time.h and use the time functions to make a clock as he said above on a new hud element.
Hint: Google it.
first of all thx for your answers and great to hear that it is actually possible! :)
hope customizing my hl2 deathmatch game will not be affected by sv_pure 2 because of this.
tbh I know how to work with clientscheme.res gamemenu.res and hudanimations.txt etc. but what you say is new to me.
u dont know by accident where the hud elements are stored?
probably in hudlayout.res?
or explain it a bit further to me?
how can I add an new element, like this?
But the new element is the last step, right?
sry I am not a programmer so I am not very experienced with coding...
All help appreciated!
ok a very nice user of these forums thx to razvan252 gave me this link
where the whole process is described!
but my problem is as i said i cant understand c++ or compile and things.
i dont know how much time it costs, the tutorial is quite short so is there anyone out there who could do this for me?
thx in advance ...

if you really can't code get a coder, learn, or just do it with the level itself.
I have a 4 digit counter up on there.
[QUOTE=Angry Beaver;6463190]..., or just do it with the level itself.
sry, didn't get that!?
so I hope there s someone out there who could compile this for me,
as the tutorial provided above is quite short and even the needed code is shown there... so plz help a hl2 fan out! thx in advance! :)
here s the tutorial link again
Be aware that you won't be able to play HL2DM with your modified client.dll if that's what you intended.
thx ging, so I think this story ends here... well, seems like I am going to buy me a small desk clock with seconds on the display instead of coding... :D

not really, you could do it as a plugin.
would you explain that further?

plugin=some kind of an addon...
Examples for css(can be hl2dm):zombiehorde, zombiemod, bullet time etc. look it up on wiki how to do one.
But they're all server side...

hmm yeah youre right...but it would be beter than typing thetime everytime...
Or you could just buy a watch...
that s what im gonna do! :)
anyway thx thx thx razvan!!
