I'm not at all a fan of these ****y detection rings. As so I devoted several minutes to finding something to git rid of them.

Go to Splinter Cell Conviction/scr/system
and find your 'Conviction' .ini
Open that, scroll to the very bottom. Several inches up you'll find the [HUD] section.


[HUD]

Change the red numbers to zero.
And violla, no more ****y detection ring. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Best thing ever. I hate these circles. Seems like I have another reason to record my gameplay again. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Thank you very much Jazz. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


It seems you can turn off the objective marker too. I have turned off that thing through the menu but it does still pop up.

Thanks for this information!

I was searching the net trying to find out how to completely remove the HUD but sadly, this is the closest I got.

You can also remove (or enlarge if that's your cup of tea) the markers by changing the values of:

fMarkerMaxSize=20
fMarkerMinSize=20

to 0 for no markers and a higher number for a larger size.

Personally I turn them off when playing co-op. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif
