Description

When I play Doom Registered v1.1 the status bar is displayed incorrectly.

This is because in the older versions of the IWAD, the status bar background was split to multiple patches. For reference, see: https://doomwiki.org/wiki/Status_bar#Older_versions

History

  • Target version deleted (2.1.2)

#2 Updated by skyjake 11 months ago

  • Subject changed from Doom 1.1 - status bar to [Doom] Status bar drawing glitch

  • Description updated (diff)

#5 Updated by skyjake 11 months ago

  • Target version set to 2.2.x

Potentially an issue with GL draw call batching, since it looks like the status bar background is confused with the viewport composition texture.

This is probably on Windows, but could you share any details about the GPU and drivers?

#6 Updated by vermil 11 months ago

I believe the status bar graphics were comprised of different graphics in Doom 1.0 and 1.1.

Please view the V1.2 part of the below and also click the link in the entry that says the status bar was changed for more information.

Perhaps the OP can elaborate on which IWAD was being used here? Attaching the doomsday.out log file would clarify things.

#8 Updated by vermil 11 months ago

Before you renamed the report title, it explicitly said Doom 1.1 in it.

The problem only occurs in the first version of the game (Doom 1.1 Registered). In version 1.9 (Ultimate Doom), Doom 2, TNT or Plutonia. Status bar is displayed correctly.

Right you are, I didn't understand that this meant Doom version 1.1 — it is an unsupported IWAD version at the moment.

There certainly is a bunch of errors in the log:

Failed to locate lump for "Patches:STBAR"

And:

Cannot use patch ID 0: [NotFoundError] (in TextureScheme::findByUniqueId) No manifest found with a
                                       unique ID matching "0" 

Looking at the wiki listing the changes in the old versions, looks like at least the Nightmare skill level needs to be disabled for v1.1 emulation. Doing this properly would need the addition of a new game mode. However, in the meantime, some partial workaround could be introduced to correctly render the status bar using the older set of patches.
