Feature #1648: Complete vanilla DOOM emulation
[Doom] Status bar drawing glitch in Doom Registered v1.1
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
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.

When I play Doom E1M1 status bar is displayed incorrectly.
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.

- Category changed from Defect to Vanilla emulation
Before you renamed the report title, it explicitly said Doom 1.1 in it.
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"
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.
