You need to fix the HUDDATA.INI file:

[InfoDisplay]
BackgroundImage=TextBackground.tga
BottomLeftPosition=0.01,0.985
BottomRightPosition=0.99,0.985
DisplayWidth=0.20
VerticalBorder=0.0015
HorizontalBorder=0.008
EnemyTargetColor=1.0,0.0,0.0,1.0
FriendlyTargetColor=0.0,0.0,1.0,1.0
UnknownTargetColor=1.0,1.0,0.0,1.0
WaypointColor=1.0,1.0,1.0,1.0
TextFile=HUDText.str
NormalColor=1.0,1.0,1.0,1.0
WarningColor1=1.0,1.0,0.0,1.0
WarningColor2=1.0,0.0,0.0,1.0
AGLAltStart=609.6
AGLAltWarning=152.4
EnglishUnitUseMPH=TRUE

I'd also remove the background tga, as it makes the text (sometimes) a little brighter and/or easier to see. Been doing that to all my 3W games since 2003!!

Hi Jackson,

The color data values are for red, green, blue. The fourth value is transparency for that particular color (I think that 1.0 is solid, and 0.0 should be full transparency). Having said that, I have not been able to get a full variety of colors to work (ones that work well are white, black, blue, cyan, also red and yellow, perhaps a couple of other shades too).

To get rid of target icons and other identifying info., simply comment out the relevant entries (here is what I have in my latest huddata.ini that I will post with my ver. 9.1 FM update pack):

[Debug]
DisplayDebug=FALSE


TextFontName=Verdana
TextSize=12

[SmallLabelFont]
TextFontName=Verdana
TextSize=8

[HUDLabels]
EnableLabels=TRUE
LabelFriendlyAir=TRUE
LabelFriendlyGround=FALSE
LabelEnemyAir=TRUE
LabelEnemyGround=FALSE

[MapLabels]
EnableLabels=TRUE
LabelFriendlyAir=FALSE
LabelFriendlyGround=TRUE
LabelEnemyAir=FALSE
LabelEnemyGround=FALSE
