Some properties in iwadinfo

Postby gwHero » Wed Oct 18, 2017 10:29 am

I succeeded in creating a minimal custom IWAD, which is a great feature to create a standalone game for GZDoom without having to change the code of the engine.
Now it works perfectly, but could somebody tell where the following properties from the iwadinfo stand for:

Autoname = "?"
MustContain = "??"
BannerColors = "?? ?? ??", "?? ?? ??"

Apparently they can be left out, but I don't know the purpose of these properties.

Thanks in advance

Autoname = name of the user's config section loaders. Example - "Autoname = Heretic.MySillyWad" would load all of a user's Heretic autoloads for this wad, plus if a user has a section dedicated to "Heretic.MySillyWad" in their config file it will load those, too.

MustContain - safely ignore this. This is only used internally by GZDoom as a means of identifying and verifying lumps are present in a wad so it can tell it apart from others.

BannerColors = what the banner looks like when this wad is loaded. ex: BannerColors = "00 00 aa", "aa aa aa" produces blue text on a light gray background, using colors that were standard in DOS.
