Do you care about pretty enemy names?

Yes, I always prefer "Baron Of Hell" over "BaronOfHell" and "Hell Razer" over "DH_ChaingunGuy".

Downloaded this for shits n giggles to try it out. Was pretty sure I wouldn't end up using it regularly.

Damn.

This is good. Into the load order it goes. Great job; glad to see someone else following the "heavily customizable universal mods" trend.

EDIT: I'm noticing that the Bottom setting for bar positioning results in clipping. Could be just my resolution. Using newline spacing of 0.8 for that one. 0.7 is fine.

So? What's your point? I'm using that one and it's still buggy.

Glad you liked it :D

Update (v0.13):
- added an option to not show friendly targets;
- fixed bottom position lines clipping;
- fixed "Kill Confirmed" message staying if Target Spy is toggled off;
- added REKKR support.

I really like this addon. It fits perfectly with my XCOM mod. Is there a way to declare a proper display name of monsters so they are not shown by their internal class name? Something akin to the GZDoomBuilder icon and category declarations via comments in DECORATE would be great.

Thanks!

Yes, if monster doesn't have it Tag property set, only the internal actor name will be displayed (somewhat beautified). So if you want a custom name, set monster tag in Decorate/ZScript. Also you can set custom monster tag color (see a note for monster mod authors in OP).

Minor update (v.0.13.1) fixes "free" message on level start. Thanks for the heads up.

In REKKR, the Former King's second form doesn't seem to have a health bar anymore (I think it did before proper support was added, can't check since I overwrote the previous version).

REKKR keeps surprising me :D Former King's name is fixed in 0.13.2. Thanks for reporting.

Only just discovered that the final boss also lacks a life bar as well.

Fixed in 0.13.3. Thanks again. By the way, I haven't found proper name for that boss anywhere, so I just named it "Dark Foe", because it's dark and it's a foe.

Sorry, Target Spy doesn't support Zandronum. I should have stated this in OP.

Hello!
Would it be possible for you to integrate some kind of healthbar into the crosshair? I've had this idea for a while, but sadly lack the scripting knowledge to implement it.

Here's a mockup of how it looks in my head

(the right bar is for player ammo). What I thought of is to use a set of custom crosshairs that would be swapped by a script depending on target's HP (and player ammo). Or maybe you could render it on top of whatever crosshair player chose.

Hello, I found a bug.
Using this mod with Babel(https://babel-mod.neocities.org) causes save file bloat for some reason.
I tested with GZDOOM 3.4.1 and 3.5.0, and I confirmed this bug on both versions.
