Don't show IWAD/IPK3 MAPINFO author text for PWAD levels

Postby JPL » Sun Jul 26, 2020 11:41 am

Not sure if this counts as a bug or feature suggestion. A while back I added Author names to all the MAPINFO entries for WadSmoosh to take advantage of that GZDoom 4.2.0 feature. This makes it nicer to play through IWAD levels, but it's annoying when you're playing any pre-4.2.0 PWAD that doesn't provide its own Author name and an id mapper name pops up for a map that they obviously didn't make. So it would be nice if the intermission display had a check to see if a map's author is defined in the IWAD/IPK3, and don't display it if the level in question is from a PWAD. This would include PWADs that include their own WILV## / CWILV## lumps. Attached is a typical situation where this would help, from Alien Vendetta.
