So, my girlfriend has "issues with colors" (She refuses to be labeled as color blind :P) so, naturally, I have had keen interest in Razieh's color blind fixes and such, and my girlfriend has had it installed for some time; Everything has been great.
The new patcher however took a step back for model edits, and I have been working on a way to re-implement the entirety of Razieh's Colours mod, and I have made some great strides.
Most people have already figured out how to change the colors via Game.cfg, and adding their healthabrs.tga to the game, but I wanted to go farther than that for better compatibility.
Iv'e learned how to modify, and change healthbars in any way I'd like, using correctly tuned alpha channels, and I have already made a new health bar set based on the brand new health bars introduced in the Vayne patch, and matching them to the colors of the original Razieh's colours mod.
From what I understand, ever since Riot added the ability to see Shields within health bars, they made a major change to healthbars.tga, in that the health bars built in require that there is no color, so the game can change the color of the bar to match the amount of health and shield one has.
I can get the health bars to appear in game perfectly, but shields don't work correctly. I can get the shields to work, but then the bar loses the custom color... and reverts back to the generic green (The health bar frames retain their color, this is all effected by the alpha channel)
What I need to make the perfect color blind patch, is for someone to figure out how the game changes the colors of the health bars (to incorporate shields etc)
I assume that there is some sort of .cfg file that manages the colors (Or so I hope) but I can't seem to find it.
Once I can get this all figured out, I will definitely work closely with Razieh (If they are even still active) to get the colours patch updated.
I will post some pictures to help with the explanation if needed.
