Re: [Release] NC HUD v2.3.0 - July 21st, 2018

I have a minor suggestion for the next iteration of the NC HUD: If both of the following conditions are met, lower the position of the reserve-ammo counters to be flush against the slot numbers, so there is no "empty space" in the HUD.

1) The current weapon does not draw from any ammo or stat pool whatsoever.
2) Either there are no inventory items in the game or mod, or there are absolutely no items in the player's inventory whatsoever, therefore hiding the inventory display, since it is not needed.

I like to keep them where they are, so they're always in alignment with the (level) stats on the other side regardless.


Edit:

Added.

I'm so glad this now works with Chex Quest, mainly because I hate how the original removed the ammo counters. The blue color scheme also makes Harmony's status bar face fit really well. Going back to Chex Quest for a little nitpick, could the "K" in the level stats maybe be changed to a "Z", since you're zorching rather than killing?

Thanks for the update Blue Shadow, this is pretty much my go-to HUD. Its good to see a patch for Complex Doom, as far as I know there's only one other HUD specifically for CD and it hasn't even been released yet. Great job and thanks for the extra patches.

I don't know, since I don't use frontends.

Is there a way do downscale the HUD?

I'm playing on 960x540 resolution (for better performance), and the HUD looks like this:
Spoiler:
GZDoom HUD scale parameters don't help.
I tried to fiddle with SetSize in NCH_BaseHUD.Init() and BeginHUD in NCH_BaseHUD.Draw() parameters, but got no positive result (I was able to make things worse, though).

If there is no way to add a scale slider, maybe it is possible to alter the code so the HUD graphics are scaled down?

That's a first! People usually ask if they could scale the HUD up because it's too small.

I don't know if there is a way to scale it down, to be honest. Sorry.

Smooth doom patch doesn't work as it never loads up your HUD in a game.

I would like to request Strife support and maybe adding minimap/radar? Showing enemies and icons of weapons/powerups/armors.

Works for me. Make sure the load order is: Smooth Doom -> main HUD -> patch.

Strife support is partially there (it lacks weapons/ammo and keys pop-ups). As for the mini-map, sorry, no, it won't happen.
