HUD Scans

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 05:39 PM MDT | By Kodo
A much appreciated Michael Barker sent in these scans of exclusive Las Venturas screenshots from PSM Spain. You can see the private jet, the flamethrower in action in an agriculture-burning mission, the Four Dragons casino, and most importanly, the HUD! For those that don't know, the HUD or Heads-Up Display is the 2D graphics on the screen that shows the radar, your current weapon, clock, health, cash, etc. Veteran players will notice health is no longer in numerical form but now displayed as a bar.

I don't know really. It looks very bland and colorless. It's nothing like the HUD from GTA III or Vice City which is more colorful and stuff. Anyway I think this will be in fact, the best game of the year and Halo 2 and Half Life 2 should be very very worried.

hmmm...it is pretty cool to know what they look like finally, but they aren't quite as good as Vice City or 3's

i think it looks great, its just something ya got to get used too, just like being a different character..... the quality of the pictures itself aint that great so im assuming when we see the hud on our tv's it'll look even better and more sharper, gta 3 was just yellow right, not that colorfull???

The shot with the group in the car. Do you think the white bar might be a gas gauge?

As well, the shot of the plane, on the radar. Do you think that strong colour divide might be the "gang borders"?

hmm and also there are only 8-digits and didnt Vice and GTA3 have 9? why would they decrease that. Eh the game comes out in a few days we'll see.

Althought I can't confirm the 9 digit claim with the other games, I heard they're trying to make money an actual issue in this game. After 25% into the last two games, money was never an issue. You were a multi-millionaire and you could buy 9 rocket launchers with no fuss.

Bugged the hell out of me.

Holy crap! Who cares what it looks like. You guys prefer the pretty pink from VC? Give me a break. It looks good from what I can see. They are too small to really see. Anyways thanx for the info Kodo.

I wouldn't mind less HUD and more character response. As with the CJ commenting on when he's hungry bit.

There's one more pic from the set you're missing: http://gtadomain.gtagaming.com/images/sa/screens/316.jpg

They're from some Spanish magazine, apparently running an exclusive preview of the game. The name of the mag is unknown though.

YA where da hell is da wanted level??????
I have a %80 chance its a fake
since
1. theres no indication of what magazine it came from.
2. no wanted level
3. the four dragon picture HUD looks Messed up
4. The Private jet picture has a weird looking HUD too.

Just seems a bit off, of what SAN ANDREAS should be.

Perhaps they're screenshots of an old build.

Even if it is legit, Rockstar hasn't done wrong by us yet, so I'm not worried in the slightest.

You guys are worrying to much. Thats the HUD alright.. not an old build, not a beta.. just like everyone said that leaked map was fake.. you people need to open your eyes and except whats true. Everything thats been out so far that was fake you can tell. Its east to tell if something is real or fake. and this is the real HUD.

I also want to add.
the picture with the flamethrower.
why is there a time for cops to arrive, when i see a POPO Helicopter hovering above him?
maybe another clue to the fake HUD
and Also the spanish readings say something about swimming, when there clearly in a car doing a drive by. please prove me wrong.
please no ignorant response.

Lead time on most magazines is actually over a month. The screens we see now were made back in early September. It takes a lot of work to put out a 100+ page magazine every month.

The HUD isn't as flashy but what is interesting to me is that they chose the life bar instead a numerical life counter. To me it seems like the life bar would make it slightly more difficult to gauge how much more damage u can take. Its easier to gauge with numbers because u know exactly how much health u have. Either way I'm excited.

I like it. Maybe the wanted level stars just don't show up until you've done something illegal. I also kind of like how the health/armor/etc. have been replaced with bars instead of numbers, I don't know why.

It's a minimalist approach, it doesn't get in the way too much either. Just from these fews screens I would guess that things like wanted level stars, armor, stamina, O2 level, etc. only show up when they're needed. It makes more sense to me that way, because this way the hud doesn't feel cluttered, but more natural.

I'm REALLY looking forward to the game now. :)

Also, I just noticed something. Look at the jetliner screenshot, the one where the radar has that weird bar going across it. I think that's the "horizon perspective" thing that was mentioned earlier that helps you tell where the horizon is while flying! Neat stuff, Rockstar. Neat stuff.

I like how the gun and fist icons are more detailed and i like how the time and the "time till cops arrive" things are all written blocky. As for the armour and life bar...I hate BARS in games... thats why i didnt buy Driv3r..plus i heard it sux. also i think the cop stars and stamina and oxygen pop up as u need them as laz-low187 sed before..... but i really hope these are fake.

I'm the one who gave him those scans.

Those pictures are in fact real, the white bar is armor and wanted stars are below the health and weapon lines, there is 6 (as normal)

*POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT*

Also, to DLA, they do appear as needed, I believe stamina doesnt have a bar but oxygen would most likely appear between armor and health. Weight training is a 2-button system to train and u choose ur weight. (DUH!) Gas tank shots blow up a car. Not training muscle harms u and wont let u learn certain moves

Also, Driv3r did suck. And they are indeed real, I stake my laptop that its the case.

I also sent Kudo some more scans which is prob why he posted since he hasnt in so long.

Perhaps the red bar instead of numerical health is to make the stamina system work better?

Perhaps not, but anyway.

It seems like for every "new" thing that's introduced, changes have been made to the older style set-up. I'll be honest and say that I'm not exactly thrilled that steering is (maybe) controlled with the analog stick, I haven't relished the idea of eating/exercising thing from day 1, the HUD looks as if we lost the wanted stars/numerical status of health & armor, the music and radio controls become so popular that the entire controller setup is possibly changed, what the hell is next to go? I just don't know about this anymore. The more they "innovate" it, the more the familiarity we lose.
