Autoload Issue with Wadsmoosh

Postby speedy » Mon Nov 15, 2021 2:27 am

Brightmaps Plus 1.9 and other mods that used to work correctly aren't loading anymore with Wadsmoosh. It sounds like this is related to a change made in recent versions of GZDoom with autoload.

The issue is explained here:

..and here as well:

So now the lumps within Smooth Weapons Enhanced are no longer loaded with WadSmoosh.

Would it be possible to add back as an Autoload option?

Thank you!

Then you'll get problems with other mods. There is no universal solution to fix this. Wadsmoosh is some weird exception for the autoload logic because it's essentially everything but nothing particular.
