Whoops, I knew I forgot something. Will have to add that in later.

Finally got around to starting a run with this using Heretic and the Heretic Treasure Chest mapset. Unfortunately, I got bad luck and my first map was E2M9. Still fun, though!

When I played this a bit with Doom/Compendium, it seemed great as well and actually got me to see some maps I may not have otherwise seen normally, as there are so many mapsets to choose from in Compendium, which I hardly play as it is.

However, I have two questions:

1. Is it possible to set the maximum number of maps to play through as a future option? According to another comment, the "Shuffle All Maps" option seems to have the user play through the entire mapset in Compendium. I was also under the impression that it would only limit it to 32 maps. Said option would allow the player to enter in their own number of maps to play through. But again, I wouldn't know if such a thing is possible since my ZScript knowledge is rather limited compared to others.

2. Is it theoretically possible to load up Compendium as well as an additional mapset not included within Compendium (such as Scythe 2 or Alien Vendetta) in order for them to be added into the random map pool?

Shuffle All Maps lets you play through as many maps as there are in the megawad i.e more than 32. If you're running a wad that has a bunch of mapsets (such as compendium) it will go through all the ones that are set to Enabled in the options.

Yes, but not both at the same time. They would replace the Doom2 set i.e map01 - map32 (which can be enabled/disabled in the options).

It would be great to be able to merge megawads easily but unfortunately due to the way textures and other resources don't immediately work together when loading megawads, they need a specialized pack like Compendium or Lexicon that has already gone through the trouble of correcting texture names and renaming maps etc. If we could get a tool that converts megawads into unique map names and converts custom textures into new ones and reapplies them to the maps etc we could have a great thing going. Unfortunately I don't have the know how to go about doing that. I think we have a tool that converts wads into folders, which is a great start, but the texture names etc is the big issue.
