Tales of Arise | How To Toggle HUD Elements On/Off

This guide will show how you can toggle HUD elements on/off. From this, you will learn how you can customize to affect specific UI elements. Toggling the HUD will also toggle menus off, so you have to toggle the HUD back on when using menus. This method was created and tested with Nvidia hardware. Read on to know more.

How To Toggle HUD Elements On/Off In Tales Of Arise

First of all, let me just start by saying that you need to install a mod to achieve this purpose. The link for this mod has been included later in this guide. The entire process from start to end regarding what you need to do with the mod has been included in this guide. Check these steps out from down below.

How To Install The Mod

After downloading the mod, open the folder and extract the contents to Tales of Arise\Arise\Binaries\Win64 (where the .exe is). Once inside the game, press the Insert key to toggle the HUD on or off. If you want to change the key bindings, simply open d3dx.ini and find this and change it to whichever key you want. Just make sure it’s in the Microsoft virtual key code format.

How To Uninstall:

Either remove the mod files manually or use the uninstall.bat file. The link to install the mod is here: Nexus Mods


How To Customize

By default, this mod will exclude nearly all HUD elements. If you want to specify which HUD elements are affected by the toggle switch, you would have to do this by adding or removing shader fix files from the ShaderFixes folder. Each shader fix is a _replace.txt file and has an associated .jpg with the same name (minus the ps/vs_replace). The .jpg will show what part of the UI that particular shader fix .txt is affecting, by highlighting that particular element in pink. For example, if you wanted to only toggle the health bar you would have to:

  • Go to the ShaderFixes folder
  • Look through the .jpg pictures to find any that don’t have part of the health bar highlighted and remove their associated _replace.txt files (you don’t need to remove the .jpgs themselves).

If you wanted the health bar to not be affected by the toggle you would have to:

  • Go to the ShaderFixes folder
  • Look through the .jpg pictures to find specifically the ones that have part of the health bar highlighted and remove their associated _replace.txt files (you don’t need to remove the .jpgs themselves).

In the first case, you will be left with _replace.txt files that only affect the health bar and will be affected by the toggle switch, and in the second case, you will be left with _replace.txt files that do not affect the health bar but other UI elements will be affected by the toggle switch.
