hud trouble

you have probably heard this a dozen times, but im new to blender and im having trouble setting up a hud for a game; i follow this tutorial. The site makes me create a crosshair and use the alpha but when i do nothing happens at all; while im at it if you can also help me with the rest of the hud that would be helpful

Well I don’t have time to write a full blown tutorial myself, but here’s a link to Hamsterhill’s youtube video on HUD and scoring. Hope it helps.

thanks it makes sense now
