Post Late (Patch?) Request

I think it would be awesome to have an option to turn off the weapons display at the bottom of the screen permanently.

I have a couple of reasons:

-One of my favorite things to do in the game is to put away my light saber after a duel. The sound and the slowly disappearing blade, as well as the "exclamation point" placed on a battle well fought, just rocks. And that's how they do it in the movies! [Anybody else like to do this?] However, the appearance of the weapons selection menu every time this is done is very annoying.

-I have all weapon positions memorized. I have no need for the display. [Not bragging here.]

Hopefully, this option is easily added to a future patch release.

What does everyone think?

Thank you very much for your time.

there wont be any more patches for this game, as Jedi Academy is out very shortly. I also doubt they would include this option, or patch it to include it. there may be a console command to do so though...?


For all your current and upcoming Star Wars needs come too...

This is something you can try:

open up notepad then cut & paste the following text there

set switch1 "cg_draw2d 1;weapon 1;set switcher vstr switch2"
set switch2 "cg_draw2d 0;weapon 1;set switcher vstr switch1"
set switcher "vstr switch1"
bind 1 "vstr switcher"

After that save the file in your jk2 base folder as Saber.cfg. Once you're in game, you can bind a key to start the script file for you by doing /bind x exec saber.cfg (replacing x with whatever key you want). Make sure that your saber is off before you execute the script. Once you've turned it on, whenever you hit the 1 key you're saber will turn on normally, but when you turn off your saber the different menus and stuff will disappear from the screen until your saber is turned on again. This is kind of a roundabout way to get what you want but it should help

cg_drawgun 0 might help. I play with that almost all the time because it makes more things seeable

I think he's trying to get rid of the orange/yellow bar that displays across the bottom of the screen when you switch weapons. I don't know of any specific command that'll keep it from displaying except cg_draw2d 0 which will eliminate the whole hud.

Isn't it enough just to hit 1 so your saber de-activates? Works for me, mate. (Like Mauly after the duel on Tattooine ) and it doesn't bring the display up.
I also think it looks 'harder' than switching to another weapon. Unless you're about to start blasting the corpse of course Which has been known from time to time

Actually, that is what I'm doing, and it DOES bring the display up. I should point out that I'm referring to the US demo at this time, though of course I plan to buy the full version as soon as I get my hands on it.

Gah! My sincere apologies Guest, you are of course right. I only noticed it when I was playing today (shows how much it matters to me, eh? )

So yeah, I guess the only things may be to take the whole HUD out? If anything it'd make it more realistic not knowing exactly how much health you've got I suppose.
