I suppose there are other custom graphics in many megawads that aren't seen as well - the help and credits screens, custom menu art / fonts - but those would be a bit tougher to swap in depending on which wad the player was in.

This is indeed a good idea, might work for an addon. I believe NightFright did a bunch of widescreen-friendly edits of several classic mod HUDs so that may be a good base. I'll see about it in the future.

This is strange, I distinctly remember checking that and it producing a green splash (albeit not the same one used by regular doom nukage, but an internal splash of daedalus). Maybe something else broke on the way.

I was never able to figure that one out, it may be something related to the translator's battery. Whatever it is, it does not impact gameplay in any way and I've never found it intrusive (I played throughout all of daedalus within compendium)

You can take a screenshot of this if you want so I can see what you mean exactly but keep in mind that for the most part I've not touched any of the misaligned textures or other similar problems, fixing every single imperfection is not the point of this project.

I appear to be unable to reproduce this. Any more steps you can provide for it to be reproduced?

wokrs for me,completed the whole wad




Broken how?



That level is broken in how I'm unable to exit it when I enter the final room (the small room with Icon of Sin's John Romero head behind the barrier). When I activate the exit switch, it crushes the Romero head and nothing happens after. I try to exit from the level but the teleportation platform also stops functioning. There is literally no way to get out of that room.

I should mention that I'm playing this with Project Brutality v3.

Have any other wads done the "choose from maps from portals in a room" thing? I know that the latest doomworld project has, but that's about it.

Also does anyone have a link to the quake mod that did similar with their "best of the best" maps? Links for it absolutely everywhere are down.

The Sentinal has a similar megawad collection called the lexicon. Its much less wads, but newer and some popular things like scythe 2. There's some interesting slaughterwads as well. Its still being developed so more is coming I know.

Other than that, I have no idea. I hope its a trend that catches on. Compendium and Lexicon are amazing.

Does this break some sort of record for most levels in a wad? (Excluding jokewads like 40,000 levels) - I only know of 8/16-in-1 for zandronum (which also has many classic megawads).

Enslavement: The teleporter in the Super Shotgun secret room at the start of ENS01 doesn't work (had to noclip out of there). It worked in the original map (it should teleport you back at the start).

Lol, it has to be a record. Even if Lexicon fills up every unused slot in its current hub, it will still be less wads than are currently in Compendium. Looks like Lexicon updated today with three more wads here...

And Dynamo himself added a Zandronum version of Compendium today as well. I don't know what the differences are, I just saw the upload right now. You can grab it here...

Yo man, I have been playing the crap out of this .wad for the past month... and Decided to post some user feed back to a possable future update. All Hell Breaks Loose looks seems off... it load the custom weapons and the custom monsters don't seem to be working the way they should. also on map VFL04 I got killed by a chaingunner under the map.
Also was wondering if you could name some .wads that you wanted to add but didn't (yet) or for other reasons? Just curious. Thanks man.
