Re: Widescreen statusbars for Doom PWADs

I've fixed the transparency in the Scythe 2 HUD and the lack of text on the JPCP HUD (now HUDs plural, one for each language). Also, I think by ZBlood you mean Blood TC, its predecessor that intended to offer some Blood-flavored levels rather than remake the game, and didn't even need ZDoom to run.
edit: Crap, I somehow zipped an unfixed version of the Scythe 2 fix. But here it is for really real.

Thank you for updating the package. It's a fun option to play through different WADs with the HUD of my choice as well as having decent widescreen support.

I have a pie-in-the-sky request, though. Would it be possible to combine the HUDs into one pk3 or WAD and allow a menu option to change the HUD in-game?

I like that in ZDoom I can choose my avatar name and armour colour it would be great if one could do the same for the HUD too. Just a silly idea, I suppose... :)

Uhm, I dunno if GZDoom allows to dynamically replace the statusbar with a variable. If so, I guess it may be possible to do with some scripting, but that would be beyond my skills. There is also the matter of how to make statusbar selection convenient considering the large amount of statusbars which are part of the project by now.

I like the idea in general, though. However, it would require the assistance of someone from the community with scripting knowledge for this.

In my status bars, the fild "arms" with the numbers stay like in original status bar version. What is happening? I use the current version of GZDoom.

This status bar pack doesn't include the arms graphic from each of the individual pwads they are modified from. If you're trying to use a particular status bar outside of the intended pwad it will default to doom(2)'s arms graphic. You can use slade to open the pwad and copy the graphic, likely named "STARMS", into the widescreen status bar wad and it should work.

Widescreen statusbars don't include arms graphic because they don't need to be modified for widescreen. Something else is overwriting the arms graphic for you.

Basic steps:

1) Create a new image with 486x32 pixels.
2) Add the old STBAR image and center it.
3) Add the two missing parts on both sides (83x32 px each).
4) Save as PNG.
5) Create a new wad in SLADE.
6) Add the image as new graphics.
7) Apply an offset of 83 pixels.
8) Convert the image to Doom palette to be on the safe side.
9) Save and enjoy.
