Customizing the Advanced HUD (PrBoom+)?

Recommended Posts

I'd like a version of the advanced HUD with a big health/ammo/armor display like this:



The closest options available via F5 lack the big ammo display. Is there any way to customize the HUD on my own?

If the answer is no, consider this a request, oh grand PrBoom+ maintainer -- at the very least one for an advanced HUD like the one I'm looking for to be added to the roster, if customization isn't feasible.

On 2.5.1.4 after pressing F5 seven times I get the large ammo display.


With the advanced HUD stuff too (kills/items/secrets display, the timer, etc.). I took that screenshot in prBoom+.

This is the closest one available to what I want to use.



It would be nice if the ammo display here could be replaced by the big bubbly one.

Whoops misunderstood what you meant by advanced hud, good luck.

as far as I can tell, yes you can edit this stuff by altering values in the -PRBHUD- lump in prboom-plus.wad:

Like so?

Add this to the end of -prbhud- in prboom-plus.wad.

hud 13
tracers 2 148
hudadd 2 156
monsec 2 164
keys 2 172
weapon 208 164
ammo 208 172
medict_icon_small 2 -197
health_big 22 -198
ammo_icon -100 -198
ammo_big 105 -198
armor_icon_small -316 -197
armor_big -298 -198
(It appears that
- hud 6 is a copy of hud 5 with ammo_icon and ammo_big added
- hud 12 is a copy of hud 5 with the advanced hud stuff added
Therefore this is a combination of huds 12 and 6.)
