Hello! Loving this mod so far, especially after following the instructions to tune it up and make it prettier, excellent! I have 3 doubts that hopefully someone will help me with.

1) How do I remove Master Levels' pistol start option? I want the maps to run like a campaign without this pistol start, or else armories like the one in Catwalk are simply... useless.

2) How do I add a custom PWAD like 'lostepis.wad' to be loaded into WadSmoosh? That's pretty much the only PWAD I want in this project and I'd love to learn how to do it myself.

3) I tried using the fixes mentioned in posts before this but I just can't get the GZDoom episode screen to show the episodes with big, red text. I installed the dcc.pk3 addon, it didn't work. Edited the menudef file, it didn't work. Is there a fix for this?

Thanks by the way!

I don't recall the NIN secret ever counting as a secret, but somebody may feel free to prove me wrong.

Yes, the NIN is supposed to be tagged as a secret, most specifically the N right next to the torch that triggers the wall to lower and reveal the logo. It's a very thin line, but it is a secret.

From the wiki page: "Note that the letters themselves are not tagged as secret, so this secret may be a bit tricky to register."
It's always been a bit finicky for me, but I don't think I've ever had more trouble triggering it for the WadSmoosh IPK3 than the Doom2 IWAD.

JPL doesn't want to add in support for lost.wad or lostepis.wad.

I've done my best to try and support for both of these in a modified version for my own personal use, and for whatever reason the wads don't extract properly. I get errors that it is failing to extract certain files from the wads. But if I use wadextract the files extract just fine. So I end up manually extracting those files and then adding them into my doom_complete.pk3 file.

Let me make my changes against the latest version of this again and I'll post it to see if anyone is interested at looking at it, but I just don't understand why files in lost.wad and lostepis.wad simply won't extract with this tool, but they will with wadextract.

Here are the changes I've made.

Here is a copy of my modified version of the tool (there are no copyrighted resources or source mods).

But it still fails to extra some files from the wads for some strange reason that I can't figure out, so I manually extract those and put them in my doom_complete.pk3 file.

I will look into it. Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it. I am still pondering over the Master Levels Pistol Start removal/SIGIL text having the Nightmare effect. I figured out why the text was not showing in red, and that is because the menus automatically shrink when there is over 10 options to show.

Can you please explain which files were missing, and how did you put them in the doom_complete.pk3 file?

When I run it with my changes to include lost.wad and lostepis.wad and then check the log file you'll see some errors:

So I use wadextract to extract those files. A .pk3 file is literally just a zip file. So I open doom_complete.pk3 with 7-Zip and then copy the missing files to the graphics folder in the zip file.

Thank you! I followed your instructions and got it! Just one more question: I wanted to have the default font in the selection of episodes, but it is not showing, is it possible to leave it as the image in this post below?
viewtopic.php?p=1122780#p1122780
I tried to follow the instructions, but it didn't work.
(Ps .: I tried to send a private message, but apparently I am not yet allowed to do so)

By the way, I removed the "ResetHealth/ResetInventory" functions that could be found inside the doom_complete.pk3 (mapinfo/masterlevels.txt), but that still doesn't prevent the pistol starts from being enforced. What am I missing?

Also, thanks for your PM, ender.

Here is a copy of my wadsmoosh.log
I'm able to get to SEWERS.WAED from E1M1. But if I'm on MAP02 and try to get to BETRAY.WAD, it the secret exit just takes me to MAP03 instead.

::edit:: Ah, nevermind, turns out it was Doom 4 Vanilla that was responsible for this bug for some reason ::edit::

Will there be No End In Sight support now that it's on the Betheseda launcher?

Tons of wads are going to be eventually added to the Bethesda Launcher, but they remain third party content that is not likely going to be added to WadSmoosh.

No. See this previous exchange:

Hydra Spectre wrote:Double Impact is available as an add-on to the Bethesda.net and console versions of The Ultimate DOOM, so it's now sort-of official.
Will you add it to WadSmoosh?
I mean, you added Sigil, which was a semi-unofficial game until Bethesda added it as an add-on.


JP wrote:Note: With the sole exception of SIGIL, non-official content, even stuff that was sold at retail by random companies like the Lost Episodes, is not supported! People in this thread have customized WadSmoosh to do this but it's outside the scope of what I wrote WadSmoosh to do and I have no intention of supporting it. Also please note that you don't need WadSmoosh to merge non-commercial content! Use a WAD editing tool like SLADE3 instead.

Spoiler:

The menu not being quite center, and it resetting back to the minimal menu if you exit and reenter, bugged me enough that I finally gave in and poked around with this layout until I got it just right!

Some scaling factors and resolutions cause the text to increase to an overly large size and no longer fit inside the window, but that still doesn't cause it to switch back to the small list format. As far as I can tell it's just another case of GZDoom's scaling doing some weird things, which has been reported several times already.
