Doomguy Visor Hud - NOW 4:3 COMPATIBLE

Post by Mike12 »

Just something I've been working on for a little while (on a rather on-and-off basis). Should hopefully make the game have a tad more immersion.
I'll probably update it some more in the future as i figure out more stuff.

Update: 9/5/2013
Now compatible with both 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios, will hopefully get 16:10 compatibility done soon. In addition, the GZDoom version contains both 4:3 and 16:9 ratio versions, and will switch between them automatically when you switch aspect ratios. This doesn't seem to work for Zandronum though, so they had to be seperate files.

A couple new little features also include a toggleable respirator (courtesy of Max Dickings), which can be turned on or off using the + or - keys (ie screenblocks 11 has no respirator, screenblocks 12+ do), and Max Dicking's holo/glowing border effects.

---Downloads---
All-in-one zip file (contains both GZDoom) and Zandronum versions:
http://www.mediafire.com/download/2a2w2 ... 1a_fix.zip

Old versions (1.0) - Not 4:3 compatible.
Spoiler:

Brutal Doom compatible, and should be compatible with most Doom wads as well, as long as they don't rely heavily on a built-in ACS status bar or something of the sort. Make sure to load it last in case you're playing a wad that has custom status bar graphics (such as Equinox and the like)

Quick question:
Will this work with Zandronum?

EDIT: It seems like it doesn't, because I get a "bad syntax" error when I load this up with Zandronum.

Huh: I thought it would. It's just an Sbarinfo lump, nothing really fancy.

- Doesn't look right in 16:10
- No HUD at all if screenblocks > 10
- Icons for weapon and/or ammo type would be nice

Ah, this is essentially the first stable release of what is pretty much my first hud. Will definitely be updating it more in the future to have more information (and adapting it to the other screen ratios, got a request for 4:3 as well)
Though, not quite sure what you mean by screenblocks.

screenblocks is the cvar that governs the screensize. Typing "screenblocks 10" in the console gives you the Doom status bar. screenblocks 11 gives you the fullscreen HUD. And 12 totally clears the HUD.

Also toggled with the - and = keys.

I play with screenblocks 11 (fullscreen HUD) therefore when I loaded your mod, no HUD was displayed, probably because you didn't define a fullscreen HUD.

As good as this Hud is there is unfortunately no display for items. Please add that somewhere.

Really awesome.

A couple of quick suggestions

1) If possible, change the armor icon, or color of the armor bar, based on the type of protection you have. Since I know that blue armor cuts your damage by half, whereas green armor only absorbs a third of it, some players might want to know the type of armor they have on as well as how much is left

2) Maybe some sort of 2nd, alternately colored health bar for when you have over 100% health?

Neato! I liked using a helmet mod in Oblivion, so seeing something like this for DooM is pretty cool!
