I've checked this one out, and I'm mostly satisfied, but there's a few tweaks I'd add; namely that there could be a description of the megawad you are about to enter as you come up close to the entrance of the Megawad. The description could give players more of a clue about the set of levels they are about to enter, such as their length, the general type of gameplay, the history of the wad, etc. I also noticed that with AeOD, no weapons are given to the player by default.

- SLP02's yellow door never opens, making the map impossible to complete normally. The switch in the room with the yellow sector-colored silver pillar doesn't do anything of note.
- SLP05's camera special, the one outside the first Radsuit room, always desyncs multiplayer games when used. (???)
- The ambient sounds in SLP08 and SLP09 constantly loop, rather than playing a sound at random intervals - that is, the owl, cricket, and Quake zombie sounds.
- Messages only display for the activator of the script, which means only one player ends up seeing printed messages when they occur.


Thanks for sharing this info. Wished to have seen this post BEFORE attempting the thing. Yeah, Project Slipgate is broken.

Hi. Today I download Compendium because, hell, is a compilation of old megawads upgrated and fixed for modern launchers like gzdoom, maybe I could play it for weeks.

Started playing Scythe with Doom EXP and its neat that is fixed a lot of things, like including the map names on the automap and blocking you for jumping (even if that is going to be horrible for Map 28 hahaha :lol: ) So, I found a an glitch and also I have a couple of questions:

- Glitch : On map 18: MS Futura, when you cross the small 3D brigde for the yellow key, that part becomes an invisible wall that blocks you for going to the outside area or for trying to cross the brigde again. Not sure if Doom exp mod is the responsible for the bug.
Q1: The wads have text screens? I notice that Scythe got removed the generic ones from Doom 2 chapters.
Q2: what is the Small pk3 file that comes with Compendium?

Finished Compendium Scythe Today. The brigdes of other maps of Scythe have the same bug of being instead a complete invisible wall that blocks you for passing over, or cross under them (Map 18. Map 21 and Map 29). Tested it with not gameplay mods on Map 29 and the same bug happens.

EDIT: On various maps from Enigma Map pack, there are a lot of Green and Red Lights switches that doesn't have an animation or sound when you activate them. Most of them are also important to advance on a level.

Unfortunately mega seems to be getting stuck at 5mb when I try to download this, using the app and Chrome / Firefox.

Can someone mirror this somewhere else? I'd really like to give this a try.

Mega doesn't allow you Download a lot of data unless you have an Mega acount, so its better to use one (Doesn't matter if it isn't premium).

And even with an acc there's a limit, which they say depends on how much unused bandwidth they've.

OP - Could you edit the first post and add this link if you're still around? It's easy to miss a reply to the thread :D

^_^ That sounds awesome. I checked to see if I could get the download for Undergate and have not been able to. Would you be able to post a link (google dropbox etc.) for the Quake Undergate map pack please?

I've been busy with other projects as well as university but I am hoping to soon be able to gather all the bug reports and complaints I've received on the thread and on Discord in order to release a new version which should hopefully contain a few other mappacks as well. Sorry it's taken me so long but paradoxically the covid pandemic has shortened the time I have available rather than giving me plenty of it.

These are the two bugs in question. It helps to actually tell Dynamo what to look for in that log.

This collection of mappacks is very nice for those of us who are new to classic Doom. I still haven't completed both of the original games, so I only briefly tried Compendium after finding it here on the forum a few days ago. (For me it's great that EVP works fine on the few maps I entered.) I was planning on searching for old maps with good reputations, but now I don't have to. There's tons of levels, all in one polished pk3.

Thanks Dynamo!
