Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

[HUD] feel at home when using GZDoom, thanks to MimicHUD

Post by Delfino Furioso »

I frequently hop from source port to source port (mainly Woof and GZDoom).

I never play using the statusbar, preferring a fullscreen viewport.
In doing this I sometimes feel disoriented because each port has its own HUD style.
If you are familiar with a scenario like this, you might end up enjoy this!

Enter... MimicHUD

A little SBARINFO mod which mimics (duh) the hud of some popular ports.
This way you can feel at home by playing in GZDoom and using the HUD of other ports.


// FEATURES ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
- 6 main styles: GZDoom, Eternity, Boom, Boom Modern, Crispy, Crispy Modern
- secondary ammo support (for the normal statusbar too!)
- optional level stats counters
- optional mugshot (Crispy style only)
- custom FONTDEFS, TEXTCOLO


// CHANGELOG ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
- 2022.10.26: initial release
- 2022.11.02: added option to replace Arms with Mugshot (Crispy Classic only)
- 2022.11.03: added the Eternity style and stats support, reworked various cvars
- 2022.11.07: removed MaxAmmoCap and ArmorDmgAbsorption indicators, various tweaks
- 2022.11.16: expanded Mugshot/InventoryItem support, tweaks to the CrispyModern style
- 2022.11.30: removed BoomModern and CrispyModern, tweaked the remaining styles
- 2022.12.01: tweaked the Mugshot/InventoryBar appearance


// WHAT'S MISSING? /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
- level time (I usually rely on the port for this)
- ammo tally (supporting gameplay mods would become a nightmare)
- powerup timers (same as above)


// INSTRUCTIONS ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
add this mod at THE END of your load order (to override any pwad-provided hud)
gzdoom.exe -iwad "DOOM2.WAD" -file "D2TWID.WAD" "BDLITE.PK3" "MimicHUD.PK3"


// CREDITS /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
- GZdoom/Crispy/Boom devs for the inspiration
- Hellser for his work on the Boom HUD for his mod Project Aurora
- International Doom devs for some gfx resources
- Eternity Engine devs for some gfx resources


// DOWNLOAD ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

- previous release: https://www.mediafire.com/file/4xz7055d ... 16.7z/file

Looks really promising, however those small grey numbers don't fit. I would love to use it in my mod with your permission

The ammo/armor numbers are indeed kinda redundant, at least as far as I am concerned they wouldn't be needed. Otherwise, quite a nice selection of options there.

unfortunately in Sbarinfo there is no other way way to report which armor class the player has, without using "DrawImage ArmorIcon"
so "DrawNumber SavePercent" will have to do until my zscript knowledge will finally let me reimplement this hud
I'm open to suggestion btw


anyeay those numbers are behind a cvar, so people can disable them if they don't like them




as for using the hud elsewhere: sure, go ahead! don't forget to credit me and my sources, though..

and post an update here when you'll release your work!

Creative suggestion:
Optionally show the mugshot instead of the "ARMS" panel, at least for the Crispy HUD.

done! (only for the Crispy Classic hud style - where it makes the most sense to me)

I'm loving this compendium of source port HUDs, another one for the autoload list!
