HUD Statistic Colors

Poker Sleuth's Heads-Up Display (HUD) automatically colors each statistic, making for a gorgeous HUD with rich visual information. With the default settings, each statistic will be colored as follows:

  • More red if the stat is lower than the typical player's
  • More green if the stat is close to the typical player's
  • More blue if the stat is higher than the typical player's
  • More gray when there isn't much data for the stat

By calibrating the colors based on the typical player, Poker Sleuth can appropriately color any stat. No need to manually assign colors to each kind of statistic; it just works. Click the annotated screenshot to see an example.

How does it work exactly? Through a combination of unique color features:

  • Interpolation between colors

    If you tell Poker Sleuth to use red for a stat of 10% and yellow for a stat of 20%, then for a stat of 15% Poker Sleuth will combine the colors and use orange.
  • Automatic foreground

    Poker Sleuth will automatically choose the best foreground color to give the text maximum contrast with the background color.
  • Color based on percentile

    Instead of coloring based on the raw statistic, Poker Sleuth can color based on the percentile. Remember standardized tests in school where you'd get a raw score and a percentile? The percentile tells you where the statistic lies relative to other players. The 50th percentile is the typical (median) player. The 25th percentile means that only 25% of players have a lower value, the 85th percentile means that 85% of players have a lower value, and so on.
  • Fade low-quality statistics

    When only a few data points contribute to a statistic, Poker Sleuth will fade the color toward gray. As more data accumulates and the statistic becomes more reliable, the color will appear more vivid. In other words, the most useful data stands out.

While we love making things work “out of the box,” we also love configurability; each of these features can be individually disabled. All of the colors and settings can be configured globally or just for a particular statistic.

To top it off, all of the color features work with Poker Sleuth's unique Villains' View of Hero mode. By holding down Shift, you can see the statistics your opponents have collected on you, colored to show how you've been playing compared to the typical player.

For reference, below is the color palette Poker Sleuth uses by default. The numbers shown here are the percentile, not the raw statistic.
