In video gaming, the HUD (heads-up display) is the method by which information is visually relayed to the player as part of a game's user interface.

It takes its name from the head-up displays used in modern aircraft.

The HUD is frequently used to simultaneously display several pieces of information including the main character's health, items, and an indication of game progression (such as score or level).

Dead Rising 2Edit

In Dead Rising 2 PC version, the HUD can be removed.

Removing the Guide arrowEdit

Dead Rising 2
  1. Open data/models/special
  2. rename the files to anything different:
    1. guide_arrow.big
    2. guide_arrow.tex

The "black stain" remains, which was behind and surrounded the arrow, modifying the above ingame.big file removes this.

Why change the name and not just delete it? This is because it is good to still have the file just in case you ever want the arrow back.

Off the Record

The Dead Rising 2 method does not work for Off the Record - the game crashes at the start up screen. Removing these two files also causes the game to crash.

Instead with Gibbed, open:

Dead Rising 2 Off The Record\data\models\special\guide_arrow.big

With a text editor open:

bigfile.xml in the guide_arrow.big folder created by gibbeds

bigfile.xml looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<files version="2">
 <entry name="Combined Vertices 8" alignment="32">Combined Vertices 8</entry>
 <entry name="Combined Vertices 12" alignment="32">Combined Vertices 12</entry>
 <entry name="Combined Indices 2" alignment="32">Combined Indices 2</entry>
 <entry name="_ATTRIBUTE_" alignment="4">_ATTRIBUTE_</entry>
 <entry name="UsedShaders.txt" alignment="4">UsedShaders.txt</entry>
 <entry name="MatArray" alignment="4">MatArray</entry>
 <entry name="MatTextureInfoArray" alignment="4">MatTextureInfoArray</entry>
 <entry name="_COLLPRIMS_" alignment="4">_COLLPRIMS_</entry>
 <entry name="SceneDescription" alignment="4">SceneDescription</entry>
 <entry name="persistent.big" alignment="256">persistent.big</entry>
 <entry name="SceneHeader" alignment="4">SceneHeader</entry>
</files>

Delete all the lines except this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>  
<files version="2">
  <entry name="UsedShaders.txt" alignment="4">UsedShaders.txt</entry>
  <entry name="persistent.big" alignment="256">persistent.big</entry>
</files>

Repack the folder with Gibbed.

The Gibbed created guide_arrow_big folder can remain in the special folder without the game crashing.

arrow splotch name

The arrow splotch in Texmod is named: DEADRISING2.EXE_0xC590AD40

Removing the Local Player PosEdit

Dead rising debugger slot ranch casino (2)

When a player is in Debug Mode a green line showing Chuck's location is on the top of the screen.

Local player pos

This can be removed by editing your user.ini or master.ini file, this line should read:

RenderLocalPlayerPosition="false"[1]

Game location namesEdit

The location names which are displayed in the HUD when Chuck walks into an area is found in the data/datfile.big/fe_map_f1.csv file.

Potential coding to exploreEdit

In missions.txt, section cMissionDefinition Tutorial2_Katey:

cMissionRaiseDialog HideZombieCount1
{
DialogName = "HIDE_ZOMBIES"
}

Other sections:

cMissionRaiseDialog Timeslate1
{
show_time_until_rescue = "true"
}


cMissionRaiseDialog hide_zombrex
{
	hide_zombrex_counter = "true"
}
