A small suggestion: if you put
Code: Select allExpand view
DrawNumber 3, HUDFONT_DOOM, green, ammo1, 44, -29;
before weaponammo lines like this:

You'll get a fallback ammo print. If the current ammo is clip, or shell, or rocketammo, or cells, their colored string will overwrite that fallback print. If it's not, at least the number is printed. You'll get better compatibility with mods that have additional weapons with new ammo types.

Also, maybe creating a separate topic is worthwile, or splitting this one? It's will be more convenient to share the links to Fullscreen HUDs OP than to comments.

Good idea! This may solve the issue people are having when using this with stuff like Brutal Doom. I will implement this next week when I get access to a computer again. Thanks a lot for pointing this out!

When I release the next version, I'll probably open a new thread for it, also to gather the patches and Hexen widescreen sprites in one place. Not without referring to this thread, ofc.

I've found that the Eviternity and Epic 2 fixes seem to work for most wads that are cut off a bit. Is there a possibility to have the arms on screen with split mode in a future version?

You should post in the other thread now. :P

I could make another toggle to choose between mugshot or arms patch in split mode. Having both at the same time will be difficult.

In general, the mugshot gives you more than the arms display: Once you have collected all weapons, the whole thing is virtually useless. It also shouldn't be too hard to keep in mind which weapons you already collected and which ones are still missing.
The mugshot helps all the time, showing your condition and informing about directional damage. On top of that, there are mods which change the mugshot and you wouldn't wanna miss it.
