[ACS] In-game minimap and rotating compass

This is a small bit of ACS that allows you to print a minimap to the player's hud. It requires you to supply the image file yourself (doom2 map01 is included as an example though) and to find out a couple of values, all of which is hopefully explained clear enough in the comments. Note: Needs a (G)Zdoom version with the recent SetHudClipRect fix to work in widescreen.

Following is a guide on how to get a clean textured image of your map. If you don't need textures you can also use the "save map image" function in Slade3.
Spoiler:

Edit: and heres a smoothly rotating compass. It uses a cameratexture and an off-map downward facing camera that spins with the player. Could be used used instead of the midpoint marker of the minimap.

I think compass should always point to north, instead of rotating along with player. Reversing the values should fix this? Nice work otherwise. :)

You're absolutely right. I had the minimap on while making the compass, resulting in a player direction arrow rather than a compass. Must have momentarily forgotten how to brain..
Will add an actual compass function to the compass pk3 and reupload when I get the time.

Thanks, I'll take a look.
There is also a compass in Hellscape Navigator (v0.2.1). It works well with other addons.
