Using Hexen, Heretic, and Strife player colors for GZDoom?

Recommended Posts

Heretic, Hexen, and Strife have exclusive player color sets, like gold, purple, beige. ect. I wanted to know if I could possibly use them for the Doom player in GZDoom?

 

Here's the ZDoom wiki pages for the players, you can read what color sets they have there:

https://zdoom.org/wiki/Classes:ClericPlayer

https://zdoom.org/wiki/Classes:FighterPlayer

https://zdoom.org/wiki/Classes:MagePlayer

https://zdoom.org/wiki/Classes:HereticPlayer

https://zdoom.org/wiki/Classes:StrifePlayer

 

Any help is appreciated.

I'm not sure I understand. Are you wanting to make a DoomPlayer class that uses them?

If so, then it's as easy as simply adding the colorsets to your class.

Something of note that the Hexen play classes have but the others don't is a translation table provided by the Hexen IWAD, so unless you provide those tables yourself, those colorsets are unlikely to display properly.

If you want to use one of those colors for your own player setup, then you just need to go to the console and type "color <color or hex triplet>" and it will automatically change for you.

Yeah, probably should have been more clear.

Thank you very much!

It's really not that easy because those color sets are dependent on where the game puts its player color translation in the palette and on the palette itself.

In Hexen, there's even different color ranges to translate for the different classes.
