How to make scoreboards (helping us)

Postby S4NS3 » 11 Jul 2018, 14:15

Hello forum people!!

On this post I would like to talk how to make scoreboards (helping us) and show step by step the process as far as possible. On this way we all have the opportunity to create ours and be able to help us, I think it is interesting that we all work together in the time we have free so that we can move forward more quickly and show the scoreboards updating on time.

As there is no post on this subject I open this thread to solve doubts, help us, collaborate together and learn. How to make a scoreboard is a long process, it would be interesting to publish little by little the process to gather it in this post. It is important to begin to know the basics to perform this task, the first thing would be to locate all the files.

Making a scoreboard is not difficult (even without programming) once the first one is done, the rest is practically the same. Coloring the texts and leaving the most beautiful scoreboard is secondary and this would only be a matter of time, the most important thing is to locate the files and pay attention to the scripts, the nomenclatures they refer to, calculate the X and Y positions, the width and height measurements (W - H)

To edit all the files I recommend the Notepad ++ editor

As an example I will put the only one that I did Wimbledon 2018.

The files and the route to locate would be that I show in the screenshots:

Code: Select all
Tennis Elbow2013\Mods\PatchMaxou\Menu...

Code: Select all
Tennis Elbow2013\Mods\PatchMaxou\scripts...

Code: Select all
Tennis Elbow2013\Mods\PatchMaxou\Menu\art\ico\Wimbledon...)

Code: Select all
Tennis Elbow2013\Mods\PatchMaxou\Menu\font\...


Are you ready? Ok, your comment is important to continue helping us.

See you at the next one!! :wink:

Hi!
Good idea :D
However, when i just coloring the text and/or the background (in hudscoreboard, matchboard...), it's look weird, appears black or grey in the game :shock:
Perhaps that is too "simple" to just coloring the text...i don't know...
And to insert a new logo, i only have a grey logo :?

PS. i make it with Photoshop CS6

Great idea! :applause:
I'm having trouble changing the font colour on the scoreboard. I assumed they used Hex codes for the colours so I changed them with different hex codes in WIM_hud.def. WHen I went into the game however, the names and numbers didn't appear, the boxes were blank. I put the old codes back in and it worked. What happened and how do I change the colours?

One more thing, how do I make the light scoreboard show all the sets instead of just a set counter? Thanks!

So I tried removing this section in WIM_hudscoreboard. menu file.

Code: Select all
//=== Sets counter
item
{
   Pos /Intern/ScoreX /Intern/ScoreY Right
   ShowIf /Intern/ScoreType 0 0
   SubMenu WIM_HudScoreBoardSub1 -1
}


Afterwards, the set counter column was not present in-game, however, since the font was still messed up, I couldn't see what it said. When I started a new set, a new set column didn't appear. I'm not sure what I did wrong :/

The colors for each column are made with photoshop and the hexadecimal code is this format 0xFFFFFFFF

I would like to advance with this post to make a step-by-step tutorial, not that it only becomes questions and answers of what happens to us. As soon as I can I keep showing how to make a simple but functional scoreboard.

:D :wink:
