Can not get alternative hud to work

Postby erik9631 » Sun Jun 17, 2018 8:15 am

Hello guys.
I am using GZdoom version GZDoom v3.4.1
I have been trying to solve this issue for hours and I can not find a solution.
I can not get the alternative hud to work no matter what. I tried all the solutions previously suggested, which are changing to fullscreen chaging the hud scaling and so on but none of them worked. All I get is the default doom bar with a frame.

I would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks a lot.

My screenresolution is 1440x900. Just throwing it out there. Might help someone.

You have to enable the alternative HUD through its specific option. This won't activate through screen size changes etc.
The easiest way to change it is to type "hud_althud 1" at the console.

That was the first thing I tried before all the other things I mentioned. I tried to console command for the fun of it, but it made no difference. The hud did not change.

The alternate HUD only appears if the screen size is enlarged. What happens if you press the - (minus) or = (equals) keys?
