GZDoom 4.2.0 seems to condense episode list if it's long enough, and it affects Wadsmoosh even though it would normally fit:

Can this be fixed somehow?

There's just too much changed for that to be workable.

You can't just drop an entire project into another and expect it to work. It doesn't work that way.

For one, there's likely to be a lot of resource naming conflicts, and this can't be resolved just by saying "oh please Mr. Wizard wave your fingers and make the problems disappear!"

It would be a pretty extensive project to get that working while still having all of the other episodes remain functional.

Could it be possible to add support for non-Ultimate registered Doom (ie. releases without Thy Flesh Consumed) and shareware Doom (meaning Knee Deep in the Dead only) into WadSmoosh? It'd be a nice addition to what we have so far for overall WadSmoosh customizability.

For shareware Doom it's literally a violation of the license.

The license very strictly allows only two things: To play it, and to give it to others complete, unmodified, and free of charge.

Re: registered Doom: this may already work, each episode is defined as "optional" so if E4M1 isn't present then its episode simply shouldn't show up in the list.

Re: shareware Doom: it's not permitted to modify or (we can infer) remix this iwad's contents, but even if it weren't, what would you imagine this would look like? KDITD + Doom 2 and whatever else you provide? Seems weird to want a restricted version of something that's all about creating a comprehensive collection.

But according to the Python file's code, it'd show TFC anyway even if it isn't actually in the WAD. I mean having the other 3 episodes show up and not TFC in the initial episode screen when a non-UD release of registered Doom is parsed by the program.
In the case of shareware Doom, it would mean KDITD+Doom 2/whatever else. Sewers and Sigil could also be compatible with both of these if at all possible. This would allow people with only the shareware copy of Doom to have an experience that merges it with whatever else Doom they may have (if they don't own any official copy of Doom, for example).

It's not WadSmoosh's Python code that's relevant for that, it's GZDoom's C++ code. It's where you have the decision to not display an optional episode name if the associated map is missing.

I was thinking that maybe you could support these sprite fixes into the smoosh? I tried loading the .wad both with or without .deh patch, but it is glitchy with Wadsmoosh's pk3, for example the dead marine corpse sinks into the ground. With vanilla doom(2).wad it works fine.

TFC would still show when you attempt to smoosh non-UD registered Doom, meaning GZDoom has nothing to do with this issue, rather, it's on WadSmoosh's end.

If the episode is marked as optional in MAPINFO, it doesn't show if E4M1 is missing.

GZDoom uses the same MAPINFO for Doom and Ultimate Doom; and the same for Heretic and Shadow of the Serpent Riders.

I second this notion! Perhaps have the program detect whether "D2SPFX19.wad" is in the source_wads folder, and then have it automatically applied once all other assets are unpacked, and subsequently repacked into doom_complete.pk3, overriding the existing Doom II sprites. I only see this working if Doom II and/or Final Doom are compiled into the final package, though.
