[v1.1.0] Episodic-EX - Play all levels in sequence!

Post by Mikk- »

I have rewritten zEpisodic and renamed it to Episodic-EX, this mod should be much more robust and less prone to issues than the previous iteration.

Episodic-EX will retain your inventory throughout episodic mapsets such as The Ultimate Doom, The Adventures of Square, Heretic, Ancient Aliens* and Valiant*
*currently semi-working, see known issues.
Spoiler: changelog
Spoiler: The MAPHASH lump and YOU!

Can this be expanded to work with WADSmoosh, which has Ult. Doom, Doom 2, No Rest for the Living, Master Levels, and Final Doom in an all-in-one package?

I've been looking for a mod like this for years and better now that it's compatible with Heretic :D

it might be a bit more tricky considering doom_complete.pk3 can vary - some might not have TNT, or might not have The Master Levels or No Rest for the Living - so determining the order might not be as feasable

and v1.1 is out! A small but helpful quality of life change, there is now an option to heal players after completing an episode.

There seems to be a problem with going from episode one of Ultimate Doom/Doom 1 to episode 2. Because of how the ending of episode one plays out, I ended up starting episode 2 with 5 health.

There's an option just for that. If you look in the settings there's a "heal after each episode" setting. You can recover 0-100 hp after each episode

For some reason when playing with these PWAD's along with zepisodic and wadsmoosh, they wont continue past certain episodes of doom 1:
Guncaster: Gets stuck during the ending of episode 1
Lithium: Gets stuck during episode 2 ending.

Are you sure you're using the latest version of zEpisodic? I've just tested with guncaster 2.8 and it works fine, E1M8 exits and starts on E2M1,

edit: and also make sure that the "Play all levels in Sequence?" (sv_sequentialepisodes) is set to true.

Using latest version of zEpisodic and sv_sequentialepisodes was already set to true.

I have no idea what is causing this.

Edit: If needed i can record some footage
