    Star Wars Bounty Hunter RF idea

    I wish to not throw myself further into he newb category, but has anyone ever consider making the RF screen based off the games RF? I always thought it would be neat to recreate that RF screen on a helmet being built after Jango. If and when I get the resources and helmet along with some desperatly needed money, I have will try to replicate" that screen. Has anyone else ever done this before?

    Yes, I do. I apologize for not posting one i the first place. In the game, the ranger finder was basically used as an ID scanner, where in the game, you hunt bounties with it, as shown in the picture. Now, for me, this is what I would like to do when I do construct my own helm. For those that are more true to what ever facts there is about it, its just a suggestion.

    You'd better start programming the targeting software as well as the HUD.

    Are you basically talking about drawing that inside of your helmet? What point would that really serve?

    No, no no nooooo. Not on the inside of the helmet. That basic picture would be the RF screen instead of a clear little window, not on the inside of the helmet.

    You should take a screenshot like that, scale it to size to fit the window, and print it on a transparancy sheet with a color laser printer.

    Damn, I was wondering how I was going to do that, thanks for the idea, I have the materials to do that. If I get more detailed into it, possibly put a greenlight behind it.

    It´s easy to make that screen with photoshop. So after some minutes, you will get that screen clean of characters. Only lines, numbers, etc.

    But personally, I wouldn´t attach anything to the RF. I would let it clean of any picture.

    I guess, but giving it something adds more realism to it, thats my thought personally.

    I guess, but adding something like that would seem more realistic then to leave it blank. Another idea had with it is to put a light behind it, and whenever I lowered it into the down posisition, the light would automatically turn on, and when raised back into the up posistion, the light would turn off. Just another cool idea I have.

    I use to manage a Kinkos and this is the kind of crap we would do as side projects. I am going to do the samething I think a member here mentioned this. Sounds like a great idea. I am going to make a transparency screen capture of the Falcon taking off in space.

    Lol, Maybe you can make several as to where you can switch them out depending on what you want in the RF that day.

    Seeing that screen capture makes me want to play the game again. It was a total blast! Pun intended.

    Hey, I know it's an old topic, but I have something to add to the conversation.
    I just altered and printed the screencap to fit my RF. You can barely make any of it out, except that it's green. My mom photoshopped it so it looks acceptable, but I can't load it because it's 796x796 mbs.

    You could have the stop part of the rangefinder with a smoked green sheet that will show that when it is moved down infront of the helmet. It would just be a screen that couldn't be used, it would just be some little tool that only you'd see

    I did this up ages ago when I was bored but completely forgot to post it. Click the thumbnail for a full-sized one so you can print it out on a clear background, or photoshop it to whatever you like. Might be cool to put it in the little square part of the rangefinder (if you do ESB), and illuminate with a white LED from behind. I won't bother since no one would see it but me, but I thought someone might want to use it.
