Thanks for this... great stuff.

I am unable to scale any element of the hud. When I play default Heretic the weapon sprites are not stretched or I can change them using GZDoom menus. With Brutal Heretic the weapon is stretched horizontally and no option I've tried does anything. I'd also like to see your cool custom HUD additions scaled but again, nothing changes. What am I missing?

Greetings and thanks for the feedback I appreciate it.

Regarding the sprites, are you allocating the Ai neural upscale? Does the issue look like any of the uploaded screenshots? For the HUD I am working on scaling with both Brutal Heretic/Hexen but requires much work indeed, hopefully get a hotfix out ASAP.

Actually it does look like the screenshots above. Why are the weapons so wide? IMO it looks much better in default Heretic/Hexen.

Anyway, thanks again for your efforts.

Thanks for the reply.

Looks like ever since gzdoom was updated for Heretic widescreen, the Ai upscale is bugged out, checked online and many users state the same issue so if you have an account on zdoom, ask to speak with Graf and try and get some info on why this occurs.

I have a theory but it will be a workaround and I'd rather fix this properly.

Very good mod. But I have an issue when using the ring of invulnerability. Instead of the unique gold monochrome effect I am just getting a slight brownish filter, which makes it barely noticeable in combat, how long the item's effect lasts. I am using the pak file with the newest GZDoom.

Greetings and thanks for the feedback, very much appreciated.

The original Heretic effect is orange and Brutal Heretic is a blue tint with less saturation, when active you can also see the icon onscreen, hope this helps.

Hosting a game through gzdoom requires port forwarding. I cannot do that. Will hamachi work with this mod? Or any other third party software?

Greetings.

What notebook you using? I tested this on a notebook from 2009 and it plays fine, but had to reduce resolution. Also don't implement the Ai upscaled textures if you use a notebook, just allocate Brutal Heretic.
