Cast HUD Ideas
« on: January 19, 2012, 07:00:32 pm »
I enjoy watching the casts of the competitive matches but I think they would be a bit more exciting if there was a more visible damage 'ticker' showing the accumulative damage caused by the Infected - it would make it clearer when the big attacks happen.

Also (as sometimes the camera angle doesn't show all the ghosts) it would be nice if there was a visual as to what each SI the players have as spawns - I know in the earlier HUDs this was included but not anymore?

Last thing would be an indicator to whether the Survivors has been downed at all (or B&W) - maybe one or two dots next to their name?

Nothing to change gameplay - just for the viewers at home!

There is a spec hud (which the commentators use) to show that info, but its a bit cluttered.  If you would like to see an example, http://www.twitch.tv/sgltest/b/305963444 will show you the spechud turned on.  How much could be included to the casthud, I do not know.
Available as a SD camera if asked.

I mean the Cast HUD - I'll ammend the title.

Cheers
