Overriding AltHud.Draw() does nothing

Tested with: GZDoom 4.7.1 (64-bit)
Test material: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zbl41ctzd86qt ... o.pk3?dl=1

The attached demo above has the following, which is a custom alternative HUD class:

Code: Select allExpand view
class TestHUD : AltHud
    override void Draw (PlayerInfo CPlayer, int w, int h)

    override void DrawHealth (PlayerInfo CPlayer, int x, int y)
        DrawImageToBox(gameinfo.berserkpic, x, y, 31, 17);
        DrawHudNumber(HudFont, Font.CR_SAPPHIRE, CPlayer.health, x + 33, y + 17);

Running that code should draw nothing to the screen, yet it does. This is not a matter of incorrectly overriding the HUD, since that DrawHealth override works as expected. And yes, I do have hud_althud_forceinternal set to false.
