This console command adjusts how transparent some areas of your HUD (heads up display) appear on your screen. An example of this is how visible the shaded box is behind your current amount of money to the left of your screen.


cl_hud_background_alpha [Alpha Value]


Alpha Value A number between 0 and 1. The default value is 0.5. Set this higher to increase the visibility of shading on the HUD, and set this lower to make shading less visible.
