ZTM’s Flexible HUD mod for ioquake3 release 7 is a minor update to improve video mode selection in Quake 3 and Team Arena menus.
These changes were merged from ioquake3. Two changes from myself and two contributed by others.
- Add custom video mode (if in use) to Quake 3 and Team Arena menus. This fixes the custom resolution being changed to a built in mode if one uses the Quake 3 system menu and unable to change video mode using mouse in Team Arena.
- Use video modes supported by your display (such as 1920×1080) in Team Arena system menu as already done in Quake 3 menu.
- Prevent Q_IsColorString from asserting on negative ascii chars (by kungfooman).
- Allow overriding build date in q3rcc for reproducible builds (by bmwiedemann).

Clover’s Toy Box (as in Pandora’s box) is a project to develop a game engine for the successor to Turtle Arena and another game. The engine, named after Lycoris radiata subject to change to a common name, is expected to expand on ideas and goals from my Spearmint engine (albeit without Quake 3 compatibility). Clover’s Toy Box is currently being developed in private as proprietary software.
