GameInfo IWAD preference doesn't recognize WadSmoosh IPK3

Ran into this trying to specify WadSmoosh as default for my Master Levels Deluxe Edition project, since it requires that.

1. If you don't have a doom_complete.pk3 made with WadSmoosh that includes Doom 2, Ultimate Doom, and the Master Levels, get one.
2. Download this file:
3. Run the enclosed masters.pk3 with a fresh config.
4. Observe: the IWAD selection dialog still comes up, despite the PK3 including a GAMEINFO that specifies
Code: Select allExpand view
IWAD = "doom_complete.pk3"

5. Edit the pk3's GAMEINFO to instead specify doom2.wad.
6. Observe: the IWAD selection dialog does not appear and doom2.wad is automatically used.

Expected result: doom_complete.pk3 is a valid default IWAD option to define in GameInfo.
