Newschool Classic HUD

Postby Sergeant_Mark_IV » Tue Apr 05, 2011 7:06 pm

I made this for personal use to be used in my autoexec.ini, but I tought somebody would like to see it.
This is a fullscreen HUD for Zdoom/GZdoom/Skulltag made in the spirit of the classic HUD.

I always disliked the Zdoom HUD for some reasons, like small health/ammo/armor counter numbers, and the most important: The Zdoom HUD doesn't shows up the Doomguy's face.I love having the Doomguy's face at my screen, laughting when he finds a new gun, bleeding when he gets hurt, etc. But it also helps in gameplay, since it indicates from where attacks are comming from. In other hand, I don't like the classic status bar anymore, since it reduces the vertical field of view, plus, cutting some pixels of the weapon sprites. Not to mention that if you are playing a wad with inventory items (like NeoDoom, for example), the inventory item will overlap Doomguy's face in the classic HUD.

Now, using parts of the classic statusbar, I made a fullscreen HUD with them, that shows Doomguy's face, (and it won't be overlaped by inventory items now), and big font numbers.

Instructions:
In your Display Options, then Hud Options (if you are using Skulltag) or just Hud Options (GZDoom) and check if "Stretch Status Bar" is set to YES, or it will not behave properly.

Suggestions about how to improve it are wellcome.

What's the yellow number in the top-left corner for? Time spent in current map? I don't think its monsters.

Probably Fraps' FPS display.

There are two ways you as a coder can get around this, actually:

1. Use the Forcescaled flag in your status bar definition, like so:
Code: Select allExpand view
statusbar fullscreen, forcescaled
{

2. Use Fullscreenoffsets instead, that way it can be scaled to widescreen displays as well. This will require complete retooling of all the coordinate placement of every item in the bar, though, since Fullscreenoffsets uses a different coordinate system to anchor bar elements to the corners of the screen.

Rather than copy and pasting the same thing in three different threads, you could've made a new thread in the Editing forum.

More yummy stuff for the HUD folder.
Ammo counters are always welcome though.

This HUD is my favourite for Zandronum (because it still lacks stretching for fullscreen HUD (?!) and I have 1980x1020 screen resolution, so you can easily imagine how ridiculously small in-built Zan fullscreen HUD looks for me) because it occupies very little of screen space, shows Doomguys face and it even supports displaying different ammo types seperately, if you use it with mod that includes them.

Anyways check attachment. Glad to help and spread this little known HUD.

Could you make a version for 16:9 screens? Other than that, I quite like this. Clean and simplistic, but very functional.
