There is a niche purpose for universal key display: a mapset or a game has custom keys and a HUD that displays them, but player wants to play with a different HUD instead, which can't display those custom keys.

I've created a new add-on (PlayerInfo) to address this, rather than creating a HUD. It retains all of the dynamic features as the other add-ons. Per m8f's suggestion, it also includes an independent key display which should dynamically show custom keys from mods and various games. Its positioning and sizing options are a bit different (and separate) since its rendered in ZScript.

This is awesome. I set the screen size to twelve and use the ammo, player and level info as a whole HUD. Thanks for taking the time to do this.

Additionally, and not wanting to push my luck but, if you ever feel like doing a power-ups info of sorts, probably only the timed ones though (excluding the berserk, of course) that would just be the cherry on top.

Awesome, thanks!

Suggestion: use BaseStatusBar.GetInventoryIcon instead of getkey.althudicon and getkey.icon, like this (with icon priority adjusted to your taste):

Thanks, I probably should have tested this beforehand. Since the sprites and icons tend to look different, I've added this as an option.

As dmslr hinted, this stuff already exists in LevelInfo. Look for the "Show Active Powerups" option.

You're right. Sorry about that. The HUD is great as is.

This is great, however, a problem I encountered is that none of these are compatible with Zandronum :((

Zandronum doesn't currently support ZScript. Until it does, these add-ons will unfortunately not be compatible.

Managed to reduce the filesize of the Hitmarkers portion of your addon by converting all of its sounds to .OGG format. Attached is a copy of the converted sounds, for use if you feel the need.

Question: how can I change the font used in these? I'd like to use Doom's default for messages.

You'd need to convert an existing font into one that works with the alignment algorithm that LevelInfo/AmmoInfo/PlayerInfo use. It's actually kind of a pain in the ass, and I'm not sure why I chose to do it this way. Unfortunately, it's too late to go and do it better, so for now I've converted the small Doom font to work within this system. It isn't a perfect translation - you'll notice I had to take liberties with a few characters to make them fit - but it's good enough. You can toggle it on in the options.
