Simple HeXen widescreen friendly weapons and HUD. All should as vanilla as possible.

I even made widescreen version of Titlepic, helpscreens and credits but can't get them into the game properly. I will update if I find a way to do so. Meanwhile they are in imgur album here:

Feel free to use it, include in mods or base your mods on this.

Nice! Am I missing what the difference about the HUD is though?

This is really impressive considering the short amount of time it's been since you started the project, especially considering how overwhelming the changes you planned for Quietus seemed to be.

I feel like both this game's weapons and Heretic's could do with some vertical expansion as well, so that people can have the hud scaled how they want without seeing them cut off at the top or bottom. But I'm not demanding that from you if you don't feel up to it (or even if you do but just don't want to)

I will continue with improving and adding stuff, probably as separate project - working name Polished HeXen. I am slowly going through Script library and other soft enhancer mods around and I would like to add stuff like weapon pitch, offsets and camera roll to some attacks, make some frames motion blurred, add some frames to some attacks or add alternative strikes like I tried long ago with Cleric's mace etc. And probably even finish my old mod adding Corvus as playable class. I think I will touch a lot of the graphics while doing so, so I will most likely do vertical extensions too.

This is absolutely fantastic, and that statusbar looks amazing.

There's not currently a way to do a widescreen titlescreen without a TITLEMAP, maybe open a feature request?

Thanks for making a widescreen patch for Hexen. I have been looking for this very thing for years.

In regards to the 16:9 titlepic:
I encountered a similar problem when I made a 3840x2160 titlepic for The Ultimate Doom and a 7680x2016 panoramic ending for Doom Episode 3, with Daisy the bunny. GZDoom wants to squash the titlepic into a 4:3 space and add black bars on the left and right, and the aspect is squished.

I made a help thread about the issue in the Doomworld forums and dpJudas says he has no plans on fixing this issue.

Sorry, had no luck running this. I get as far as the menu but men attempting to start the main game it crashes with the error message 'Bad V_DrawPatch'.

Wait, why would you even need this with Chocolate Hexen? I'm pretty sure Chocolate Hexen is locked at 4:3.

Well, you have a good Point there.
Still, I don't Think it's a great idea to have .png Graphics if there's not a very good reason for it because there could be source ports that supports wide screen but not PNG.

It's not exactly a big issue that mods released on the zdoom forums work (possibly) exclusively with zdoom and its derivatives

released on the zdoom forums

That's because a lot of people here are learning by doing and may have no experience outside of this forum. They can't be expected to know every nuance of every port when they are still struggling with their preferred one. The same applies to modders on other engines, it's a hobby not a business and they're doing it for themself.

I take this as more of a resource wad than a release. Possibly base for some HeXen overhaul mod...

I found a way how to circumvent this problem - making a titlemap and displaying the image inside it. But it won't solve the other screens. What a pity, I was even tempted to try to extend ending slideshow images to fit 16:9. Replicating the low res 3D render would be probably too much work for very little effect in the end.
