Not all bad news today, QLHud is back up and running. This large HUD repository will definitely find you a suiting HUD to go with your personal taste and needs. Feel free to add and share your own HUD creations, which can easily be made with VisualHUD.
The website has been around since 2009 but was offline for the past few months. I would like to thank nico for putting in extra effort to return the QLHud website after the original author of the backend code "claimed the removal of it". The whole websites source is available on github now. Have a look and support the site with some Facebook likes and Google+ plusses(?)!
One of the new Weapons to QuakeLive is the Proximity Mine Launcher and strangely enough it has not had a warm welcome. The Prox Mine is not a popular weapon for many Quake players. As often as I see players on my own team throwing their mines about in a vain effort to block a passage or hallway, I rarely see people using Prox Mines as an offensive weapon. I have put together a video of very useful tactics to try and use with the Prox Mine. I'll also talk about the CTF tactics concerning the mindset of players and why the Prox Mine plays such a big part of that.
The qlhud.net website provides a free platform where anyone can download and share custom made HUD(s) for Quake Live.
- Find a HUD that suits your needs (search by description, author)
- Upload your own custom HUD together with a screenshot and get a permanent link to the preview/download page.
- and more...
Example: The default HUD provided by id Software.
If you need help installing or using a particular HUD, check out the Custom HUD install guide and the related posts listed below.
Enjoy and contribute your HUDs!
