Right now the HUD bar's face background is always green no matter what color do I select in the player setup menu. Would be nice if that would translate along with the player thing when changing colors.
I don't know maybe this is a bug or am I at the right place?

1. It's not a bug
2. OK, but at a low priority: such a thing is obviously not critical.

I requested this be reopened because it was indeed some sort of bug, but I have yet to determine exactly how Doom recolored the statusbar face background. Dunno whether to consider this a vanilla bug, or a ZDoom feature request.

What I do know is that in vanilla, the hudface background does change color, depending on which player you are (green, "indigo", brown, and red). Otherwise it's black. I'm not completely sure on this, but I don't think the background was actually translated (in the same way player sprites were). Instead, there are graphics in the IWAD for each player background. I'm unsure of whether these were used for the statusbar or for the intermission screen.

ZDoom, however, has a function that translates a graphic to any color in the game. This was used on the face background to denote what your player color is in a multiplayer environment. This is why the statusbar face in ZDaemon is always green (and not black like in vanilla), because the recoloring code for the statusbar was unimplemented.

Should be fixed on the upcoming release.
