    Computer can't run TF2? Then imagine you're playing it with this sexy HUD pack for your desktop!
    A little project for Rainmeter I've been working on over the last week. The pack comes with:

    [​IMG]

    The main feature of this pack. The Computer Information module uses the class icon section of the HUD to show useful information of your computer. All 9 classes can be switched by clicking the square button on the left, and computer statistics can be shown by clicking the upwards arrow, and closed with the downwards arrow.

    This module shows the time in 24-hour format, using the time remaining HUD. A 12-hour version will be released in the future.

    Preview:

    Displays your logged-in username. Place over TF2 screenshots used as your wallpaper to make it look like you're actually looking at a player!

    The last module, replacing the Ammo section of the HUD, displays information from a hard disk of your choice (easily editable inside the .ini file), showing how much space you have remaining and how full the drive is (in a percentage).

    Preview:

    DOWNLOAD RAINMETER HERE (32-bit)
    Download the 64-bit version here


    DOWNLOAD THE TF2 HUD PACK HERE
    Place the 'TF2 HUD' folder in your Rainmeter 'Skins' folder. To enable them, right
    click the Rainmeter taskbar icon > Configs > TF2 HUD and select your modules.

    Final result:

    Indeed. Just as long as I finish getting the TF2 fonts to work for it and adding a few more things.

    Nope. It's an application called Rainmeter. Very open source as all the skins and modules for it are user-made.

    Holy hell. That's quite awesome - minus the anime..ish soldier.

    Make a Blu Pyro one and I'll love you for approximately a week.

    Sure thing

    The character is easily changeable, it's just another layer over the HUD.
    (They might be interchangable on-the-fly if I can figure it out)

    Nice, expect for the animu hud.

    Nothing i'd use though, probably takes alot of resources.

    Make an Engineer one and you will be my new God.

    As long as it's a serious Engineer, and not that chibi monstrosity like the Soldier

    Download is here:
    http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/1733724/TF2 HUD.rar

    Comes with real-time interchanging class icons (not those horrible chibi ones, I swear!) on the Class Computer Monitor, the ammo HUD contains Hard Disk space (on a drive you can choose by editing the .ini file), the Time uses the Time Limit HUD to show... time, and the Username display shows your logged in username in the box that you get while hovering over other players in-game.

    Just extract the TF2 HUD folder into your Rainmeter 'Skins' folder, and then open them by right clicking the Rainmeter taskbar icon and going to Configs.

    Is there a 12-hour option on the clock? (I'd find out for myself, but the link doesn't work.)

    Code:
    Format=%#I:%M:%S
    ;Non military time is %I
    ;military is %H
    I would suggest copying this into your skin, so people can change it easily if they want. Nice job, by the way. It would go great with an in-game screenshot (with cl_drawhud 0) as a desktop.

    This is really nice, but I thought the character in the corner was supposed to say something? I can't make him. :/

    Also, the CPU meter tells me I've used 100% and I have 0.00B free. That can't be right, can it?

    Press the little up arrow button on the left of the character, and you can see what he says

    It's still in development, so the drive is automatically set to F instead of <your used drive here>, so you have to change it manually in the .INI file from F to <your used drive here>

    Also, this is the suggested use for it:

    Add the TF2 font to it? Looks weird otherwise
