Nice neat tool I've just seen that bergerkiller is working on over on the BFeditor.org forums :)

Wip Hud Editor - Official BF Editor Forums (http://www.bfeditor.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=14137)


Hello everyone

Hereby I present the HUD editor WIP version.
In this version only Picture Nodes are supported, and:
- Multi node support
- Coloring, sizing, positioning, sizing and rotating
- Single node render enable\disable check boxes
- Loading HUD's Picturenodes
- Saving current scene Text Files, in bf2 HUD coding (program can read them)
- 800 x 600 screen resolution
- Background Support and reference cross (not yet overlay)
- .dds and .tga texture load support (thanks to FreeImage plug-in)

All GUI parts are almost finished.
One big notice: to make your own HUD's you do have to edit them manually.
With this I mean, placing the Nodes in splitnodes.

This WIP gives a clear picture of how it will look like (eventually).


Install:
Just unpack the 'HUD Editor' folder and place all your menu textures in "HUD Editor\Textures"

Download LPP Collection (Contains Hud Editor.exe) (http://www.battlefieldsingleplayer.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=18709)







Time for a status update:
- Added selection squares and its manipulating features
- Node copy, cut and paste feature (yay cut and paste nodes around)
- Node treeview selection
- Save and load feature
- "failed lines" report. Can come in handy for HUD compatibility testing
- Simulator scripts
- Background and overlay images
- Endless amount of nodes are supported!!! (I tested with 200 nodes, you can manipulate smoothly :P )

- Node support for:
- Split nodes
- Picture Nodes
- Compass Nodes
- Text Nodes
- Bar Nodes

- Load and save support will be/is added for:
- the above nodes
- Hover Node
- ObjectMarker Node
- List Node

The program is quite awesome, more advanced than my first posted pic.
here some screenshots: :D

It can not yet edit nodes like marker nodes because I have to write rendering scripts for (ALL) those nodes.
This takes long, especially if I need to render multiple targets at once.

Load and save will be added, so you can open and save HUD's without code loss.






A pointless node that shows when as example you are hovering stationary in a helicopter.
It's the "awesome" oval shaped picture that appears. :D

EDIT:

It's time for the first WIP.
Download HUD editor wip version 2 (http://www.filefront.com/16552185/HUD%20editor%20wip%202.zip)

I included the bf2 textures used, if you want to use it for bf2142 please add the textures of bf2142 in the "textures" folder. :P

Thanks for the upload! However, when I click it, it will not run. I have tried running as admin, and compatibility settings. Has anyone else had this problem?

It installs itself somewhere and leaves a shortcut on the desktop. Don't know if that runs though, but I think it does.
