You mean, make a screenshot running at 1024x768. Everything else will be scaled and stretched.

Not necessarily, the problem with 16:9/16:10 is that the HUD is stretched out of proportion.

You pretty much restated what he just said.  He means that the only resolution on which the HUD is displayed actual size is 1024x768 (or 640x480 at low res).  In other resolutions, regardless of whether the aspect ratio is correct or not, it's still scaled.

I'm saying that rescaling isn't that important as long as it's the same aspect ratio. If the aspect ratio is different, then it's stretched out of proportion and the shape is screwed up.

Wormslayer, do you have your files available? I would really like to put them in our repository but they aren't available for download anywhere.

Actually I meant the redrawn FS1-style HUD elements.

Sorry I've been gone. Let me get what I have together, though I have to admit it's just the crosshair, the lead indicator, and one side of the circle (Throttle meter)

I'll see if I can get anything more done before the final release also. I have the original .PSDs I did it with too, so if I can't, someone else can make one that matches.

I know, if anything, I'll be able to get the energy/afterburner guages done. Those look incredibly simple.

EDIT: Just got the right arc (weapon selection) done! All that's left is the top arc (target indicators) and the energy gauges (easy) and that'll be it.

Bump! Got everything done except the side gauges. This HUD upgrade will be in the next FSPort release and has already been sent in.

Some pics attached.

Very nice. :yes:

Does this fix the one-pixel-off problem you get when using widescreen resolutions?

It looks much better, but there are still a couple problem areas, and there's nothing I can do about that.

If I recall, FS2's HUD also has this problem.

The only real way to fix that would be to have widescreen resolutions not stretch the HUD, and that's not something I can do.

Re: Re-make of HUD elements for sparky_hi_fs1.vp
There's scripting in the works to address that. :)
