digitalnumber <tilenum> <x> <y> <number> <shade> <pal> <orientation> <x1> <y1> <x2> <y2>
digitalnumberz <tilenum> <x> <y> <number> <shade> <pal> <orientation> <x1> <y1> <x2> <y2> <digitalscale>

Prints a number to the screen using a function similar to that which prints the health and ammo counters in the HUD.

<tilenum> is the first tile of a sequence of numbers ordered from 0-9. Useful values for tilenum in the original game art are DIGITALNUM (full status bar health/ammo/armor values), 2837 (bluefont), 2930 (redfont), 2992 (grayfont), THREEBYFIVE (full status bar detailed weapon values), and 3087 (minifont).

<x> X coordinate, ranged 0-320

<y> Y coordinate, ranged 0-200

<number> is the gamevar to print the value from.

<shade> and <pal> are obviously shade and palette.

<orientation> Controls the way the sprite is drawn (see entry). Note: It is recommended that you always include bit 16 so that the numerals will be placed correctly.

<x1>, <y1>, <x2> and <y2> are boundaries on the screen that define where the number may be drawn. The gamevars xdim and ydim will hold the current screen resolution.

<digitalscale> is the size of the text on screen. 65536 is normal size, 32768 is half-size and 131072 is double-size.

Example code:

setvar x 300
setvar y 10
setvar shade 0
setvar pal 0
setvar tilenum DIGITALNUM
setvar orientation 26
getactor[THISACTOR].extra TEMP
digitalnumber tilenum x y TEMP shade pal orientation ZERO ZERO xdim ydim

Please note that as with gametext, minitext and friends, digitalnumber only works during screen drawing events.
