I've updated the link to the autoload folder (now it's permanent, it doesn't need to be updated after every new version; Nightfright, please, replace the link in the OP :oops: ). I fixed some errors in folder names, replaced DOTB's stbar and added Anomaly Report folder.

Quick question, what program do you use to extend the huds?

Link in OP updated.

I found paint.net fully sufficient to do what's necessary for the edits. While it doesn't maintain the original palette like GIMP does, it matters little since I convert the edited graphics back to the native palette with Slade.

It seems like MAPINFO fix within mm2_uwide_fix.wad is broken; it doesn't show the proper level names. Haven't checked the other MAPINFO fixes.

By the way, the autoload folder link updated.

What do you mean? Does it use the music track names again? I was so careful to not repeat that mistake when I updated the file...

Anyway, I'll take a look at it tomorrow. I have the correct file right here, so it's a simple switch. Actually, I might as well replace it with a DEHACKED while I am at it.

Yes, it used the midi names but even they didn't replace the original names. And for some reason, the wad contained NRFTL mapinfo and text graphics for MM2 and NRFTL for selecting them in the menu like the episodes in Doom 1.

I guess Ragu's ultrawide versions have these changes, that's why you aren't aware of them.

I might also just remove any mapinfo data entirely. After all, I have a separate project for that and this should only be about graphics replacements. MM2 is definitely fixed there.

(I dunno why I made this mistake with the level names only with this pwad... Probably because level and music names are listed side-by-side in the wiki and it's easy to get confused like that.)

Hey,


If I put a HUD into the the proper autoload folder, a small portion of it, namely the 'Arms' box retains its original form, like you can see it on the picture below:

doom1205.jpg

What is the reason for this and how can I make it work correctly?

These patches only contain the STBAR patch, not the STARMS one (since it never changes). You are apparently loading some other mod that contains an STARMS lump (from the original statusbar, obviously), so it is shown.

No. It has to be something else, because I NEVER use ANY mods (except for Doomkid's Christmas pack when it's Christmas holidays, but the last time I did that was almost a year ago, with a completely different source port to boot), autoload folder is empty, the shortctus are only containing the necessary parameters (the route to the IWAD & PWAD + -shorttics -skill 4 -complevel x, and -record xy / -playdemo, when it's needed).
