    Ejection Sequence

    I believe its assigned in an xml file, don't remember off the top of my head. Check campaign.xml or constants.xml or settings.xml, it should be in there some where. You can't change the cutscene, but you can change the pickup ship.

    HUD Components

    Sorry, the hud locations are fixed. This is because it takes quite a few equations to try to generate nice looking huds for any arbitrary video resolution.
