Here I present you what is for now the successor of my previous HUD-working, known as HXRTC HUD. In fact, this is an almost complete rework of the first release of HXRTC HUD 1.0, based at the same time on my (now abandoned) BTSX HUD 2.x custom version. The main difference is that now I've updated it in many ways and made it fully compatible with classic Doom, what means that will allow you to enjoy a new and more fresh experience through your doomish adventures!
This HUD requires one of the most recent releases of GZDoom, ZDoom or Zandronum 3.0 alpha release for working correctly. Also remember that you must set in Display Options a screensize of 11 and turn off the alternative HUD. If you find the size of the HUD is too small, please open (G)ZDoom/Zandronum console and input the following command:
Alternatively, you can turn on the Stretch Fullscreen HUD option in (G)ZDoom/Zandronum HUD options. 15 JUN 2016 UPDATE: New v7.0 release of the HUD available from now, with a renewed graphic style and some improvements respect from previous versions!
For the time being, the versions for now available of the HUD are for Vanilla Doom and for Weapons Of Saturn mod. Also I'm working actively for a Smooth Doom version, and during the next days, when it's officially released, there will be a dedicated version for Brutal Doom v20!
That's definitely not vanilla doom, and fyi Pk3 extensions (or compressed folders for that matter) don't work in vanilla either.

It's supposed that in this case, the concept 'Vanilla Doom' refers to the Doom game itself, the classic, the original and unchanged one, without any mods or addons that can vary its in-game elements or behaviour. Sorry if you thought in another different thing.

Both screenshots are maps from Community Chest 1 megawad.
glad to see you back to work on huds! I was pretty sad that you couldn't do BTSX HUD anymore, but I understand why. While I wasnt much of a fan of this hud, I DO love the new additions and use it just for that.
Hoping to see Smooth Doom released soon and might want to point out you're using your version of Weapons of Saturn since that gun in the screenshot isn't from the base mod. Though it seems base WOS works fine.
Looks very cool, I might try this out! If I may make some suggestions to you based on the screenshots:
- All the keys belong together, I feel.
- Time should probably go up with the level stats, since they're the same thing.
- Really nitpicky, probably, but maybe swap invuln and blur sphere? Would order the items in terms of duration, since invuln lasts 30, then blur and radsuit last 60, then visor lasts 120.
Really like the look of this, although personally I'd make it just a *tiny* bit more transparent. The background could be another 10-15% lighter, but also the HUD text/sprites itself would probably work nicely at 90% transparency.
Otherwise, really looking forward to this, especially once the smoothdoom version rolls out.
