Again, though, you're dealing with literally thousands of wad files, in which you're guaranteed to have merge conflicts or other edge cases that would prevent it from being fully automated. Somebody has to weed through all of those, and it's such a gigantic undertaking that I don't expect anybody here would want to, especially not for something with quality as questionable as the majority of Maximum Doom.

Over and above the questions of quality and feasibility, is there a single file in Maximum Doom that isn't freely available on the idgames archive? If not, I'd say anyone with sufficient motivation could just download and repackage everything and distribute that freely, kind of like the Compendium mod but way more random and crappy ;P

In commit e30007d, you thought you were fixing the par time for map33 (which was already correct), when in reality you changed map02's par time. So now map02 has a par time of 2:00 (120 seconds) instead of the correct time of 1:30 (90 seconds).

In 1.11 this was not an issue.

I'm using 1.12, and they show up for me. Try building using a clean WadSmoosh with no modifications, and then run the game without loading mods. Does that help?

Ah jeez that's embarrassing, good catch, thanks. I'll have a 1.13 out soon.

I smooshed everything except SHREDS (doom, doom2, tnt, plutonia, master levels, betray, sewers, sigil, nerve) with unmodified settings and nothing else, deleted my config, loaded only doom_complete.pk3 with nothing else, then I started playing Sigil, used the console to go to "nextmap" and as I see these teleporters (under the starting platform), the yellow decorations are not there for me. If I beat the first level without "nextmap" cheat, the issue is still there.

Interestingly though, they appear correctly if I go to the map directly from the title menu with "map e5m2".

-----------------------

They started sometimes appearing correctly for me. I don't know why, it seems like a random issue. Unfortunately I can't give instructions to reproduce.

This one is wild, I've tried reproducing it a few times since the initial report with a clean config, different builds etc, and have never seen it. If anyone can provide any info or debugging help with it, I'd be grateful.

This is a bug in SIGIL, itself, not WadSmoosh.

In ITYTD/HNTR difficulties, the floating skulls are gone.

In HMP/UV/NM difficulties, they are there.

I'll fix it with a compatibility patch in GZDoom. Hopefully it makes it in before today's release.

Thanks! I never would have thought that difficulty has anything to do with it. That explains why it sometimes works.

------------------------

There is still a slight inconvenience with SIGIL_SHREDS. Currently, you can have only MIDI or Buckethead as OST. So let's say I want to use MIDI for vanilla gameplay and Buckethead for Brutal Doom. I can sideload SHREDS for Brutal Doom's instance, but it won't replace intermission music due to some limitations. The only way to have such setup is to smoosh two times, once with SHREDS and once without, and load specific wad for each gameplay. However, this leads to extreme redundancy due to duplicated content for all episodes.

I can see people liking lightweightedness of Wadsmoosh but it would be awesome if you could add a text file or so before smooshing, stating that you want to have both OSTs that you can switch between in Wadsmoosh in-game options. SHREDS add so much to file size that having MIDIs next to it wouldn't really make a difference, especially if it's opt-in.

No, there is no errors in log files, pk3 was successfully compressed

Try launching GZDoom from the command line (windows terminal): gzdoom.exe -iwad doom_complete.pk3
Does that work?
