Summary0005194: Is console "editguis" (Quake IV GUI Editor) still supported? If so, currently unusable
DescriptionJust looking into this Doom3/Quake IV tool that was provided as part of the Doom3 engine by Raven Software. Reportedly easy to crash, but still OK to generate and iterate simple 2D GUIs. It is still invocable (in TDM 2.07 Win64) from the console by "editguis", and appears as "Quake IV GUI Editor" window.

However, it is unusable from the outset because
- there's no visible mouse cursor (though menus do respond to mouseovers).
- the screen gamma is bleached, requiring reboot to correct.

In 2017, it was reported broken (not necessarily as described above) by stgatilov and freyk in https://forums.thedarkmod.com/index.php?/topic/19212-multiple-render-worlds/&tab=comments#comment-415501

[Sorry, this got reported under Project DarkRadiant, don't know how to change Project setting]
Steps To ReproduceIn console, "editguis"

To startup the editor with a working mouse cursor, TDM must be running in "windowed" mode (Thanks, freqk). Didn't see menu bleaching now either. Editor is still broken though. "New" does nothing, and "Open File" on existing .gui file gives popup "File Not Found" error.

I think it would be right to say that it is not supported.
In fact, the plan was to remove ALL in-game editors after some replacement for AF editor is found (0005333).
