Hi all, thanks for all the feedback!
How easy it would be to make it have a bit more light
That's not difficult at all, but I am completely happy with the darker HUD. If you would like to tweak it in your own copy, simply open all png files from the subfolder Images and which start with the word 'cockpit' and make them brighter in GIMP or in your prefered image editor.
move the indications from the crosshair to the body of the hud....like the default hud
If you'd like to do that on your own copy, you will have to edit some of the .plist files in the folder Config. The files that define the default cockpit are DangerousHUD.plist and DangerousHUD_damaged.plist, the hauler cockpit is defined at DangerousHUD_hauler.plist and DangerousHUD_hauler_damaged.plist and the glass only cockpit is defined at DangerousHUD_glass.plist and DangerousHUD_glass_damaged.plist. The DangerousHUD_alt.plist defines the HUD layout when docket (e.g. showing the missiles in the bottom left).
Never mind, got the manager to work.
Great to hear that, hope you will enjoy the HUD
If you need any other help, please let me know.
