Time to choose the best status bar ever! Previous thread: (2004)

 

I really like the one from Hellbound. It's blue and it even has lamps!

This is what I use. It's one of the older HUDs from HXRTC. I'm not too fond of his newer ones. 

 

Does this count as a status bar? Technically, it isn't a bar.

I quite enjoy GZDoom’s minimal HUD, sleek and unintrusive.

Hmm, looking at galileo31dos01's collection I start to really appreciate status bars that replace the default little numbers (the ones used for ARMS and ammo).

this. just 2 numbers with no classic status bar taking away from the image, quake live style. i find this best for concentrating on the game. the alternate prboom status bar is the opposite to this, at least to me, as it has lots of small numbers i struggle to read during the action. 

 

from the classic status bars posted by galileo, i prefer those that are easiest to read, like btsx or threnody, for clear, big numbers with contrasting background. the funny thing is that i learned the japanese numbers pretty well when the club was playing jpcp, just because i insisted on playing with the japanese status bar. forgot them since, unfortunately.

I like Hell Revealed 2 for the red skinny gothic numbers.

 

I also like the reflections under AMMO HEALTH ARMS and ARMOR in Eternal Doom.

I was going to comment these two. Really nice and clean status bars.

My franken-edit of sorts. PSX STATBAR with these fitting big numbers.

Think I could get these resources? I might have a use for everything including the BIGFONT. Will credit obv.

This is the one I made for Maskim Xul. It's a bit minimalistic, but I like it.

Status bar? You mean it's not normal to count all the ammo you pick, shots you make and damage you take in your head?

Playing without any HUD whatsoever is an experiment endorsed by @40oz. I tried it once a couple of years ago but found it too difficult to cut ties with my reliance on the damned thing. Perhaps a second go is in order.

 

Ironmen look out.

@Obsidian You think that's minimalistic?
