Wow. This mod was already pretty impressive, but implementation of proper high-res support is just incredible. Shoozza, I hope you'll consider making him part of the dev team, so he can work on implementing these features natively instead of you having to do this yourself.

He never asked to be part of devteam, or I missed that post.
Why would I doubt his joining? Because believe me or not, it might be actually a lot easier to him to code it as hack instead of mess directly with source code...

I guess Shoozza didnt even finished  auto updater or what is his top soldat thigs now,
no wonder nothing new about code review either.

About me as dev..
..yeah, i could .. isn't like i really want(i have this feeling....), but i could do some valuable work... but i dont think that will happen so simply, only because i created mod.


... was a notorious troublemaker ...
hmm... hmm?

If i where on dev team, my first thoughts would be:
How easily you can convert soldat to c++ and dx9..


Yeah i continued my mod, and i finished idea behind that cursor override and ammo bars.

Now it has the "meters", customizable gui elements thing.

They can "measure" things as health, ammo, jet, fire, bars , player, cursor pos, player velocity,...
..represent their values as size, position, color, progress mask(whatever it sounds like),
and that all is definable in config file, so you can make whatever hud you like, for example:
speedometer, fullscreen blood splash, some blinking alerts when hp, ammo low,
hell you could even replace all soldat hud.

I haven't finished "meters" completely though.
You sure could create something more cool that you see in pics,
i haven't spent too much time creating hud.

I did read some code but it requires me to invest more time.
Maybe there is a way for aint`bazz to make things easier for me.

I guess Shoozza didnt even finished  auto updater or what is his top soldat thigs now,

Yeah :/

I don't think we will port soldat to c++ and dx9.
But delphi/object pascal is just another language so learning it shouldn't be a problem.

Will the Second Screen efect (the red screen efect) be included in slodat its awesome?
Why do you want to have this?

I didn't test it (dont have the latest version of the mod) but I can imagine that it would be annoying because you get hit all the time in soldat.
I'm not sure why hit sounds aren't enough.

Sorry but after a few versions in the past where features got higher value than bugfixes I don't feel comfortable adding everything.

i'd much rather check where the enemy is heading and follow the action than watch a dull red screen

If you want it to be added to soldat,
the idea should be expanding custom interface modding capabilities,
no one should be forced to watch some red screen of death.

In this mod (in that screen),its just generic config define that sets when health gets somewhere below 10%
specific full screen texture starts to fade in.

Ok I'll update this post just to make sure everyone knows why this is still not available for download.

The method this "mod" uses to get into Soldat could leave people with a broken system (other games or applications could crash after it was installed).
I don't want people to blame me for allowing that to happen and would be happy if aint`bazz could find a cleaner solution.

The reason why none of this is got into Soldat yet is because the sourcecode is not easy to read.
A general code cleanup would drastically reduce the time we devs need to review it.
It would be nice if there was some documentation or comments in the code.

I understand that this code works but it's not fun to extract the stuff from there.

Hopefully ain'bazz will take time for it then to rewrite/optimize or whatever is needed.


Some of these features are realy giving a new touch of awesomeness  :P

@Shoozza
I have feeling that you never received my last PM, where i was talking about that installation was made easier (e.g only replace D3DX81abD.dll in soldat dir), so nothing is globally affected and if you where interested in specific fix i could extract them for you, because for someone else it could actually get rather hard.

Well anyway..at this point im not very motivate to do anything related to this mod and don't even care to release it.

I can send you last version if you want, you dont have it because i never got response.

Hmm, i just looked in my inbox and found that PM, I must have forgotten about it.
There was no source code attached though.

Sure, you can send me the latest version if you want.

Thanks for your effort and time!
Even if you don't find the time/motivation to clean up and document the code I'm sure the features of this mod will be remembered just like people still remember mine ;) (which still isn't part of Soldat - so meh)
