Can the menu at least be downscaled? It takes quite a big chunk of the screen in the screenshots.

Yes, it can. There are a lot of options: console or small font can be selected instead of big font, then text can be scaled down (this affects messages too, though), then distance between entries can be decreased (with step size multiplier), not acquired weapons can be hidden, and even weapon names can be turned off for pure minimalistic menu.

It would be great to know if somebody finds this mod helpful, what functions and options should be added, and what weapon sets should have out-of-the-box support.

At this point I'm out of ideas how to improve Weapon Menu, and I don't know if it should be considered finished.

Update:

1.1: added Freedoom and Smooth Doom official support.
optimized code.
1.2: fixed minor bugs.

1.3: optional fire to close menu (assigned key). Now Weapon Menu can be used without special open/close key: you can open menu with slot number keys and close with assigned fire key.

 

Edit: as there is no activity in this topic, later updates will be posted only on GZDoom forum here.

Edited by m8f : added link to GZDoom forum.

Thought I'd give you a nod over here since I've been using your mods for a while from the ZDoom forums and it feels a shame there are no useful replies here. I always use Hellscape Navigator and the Automap Arrow (these are fantastic for needlessly convoluted maps); and I would use Target Spy if I didn't slightly prefer Tekish's UI for the job. Having this bumped to the top has reminded me my Hellscape Navigator is still 0.5 in fact, lol.

 

To others: If you use GZDoom at all, m8f's mods are great stuff, professional, lightweight and quite customisable.
