Anyone want to create a fork of Wadsmoosh for Wad Shovelware disks?

Recommended Posts

Since Wadsmoosh can merge & compile the official id DOOM wads in one packed PK3 file for GZDoom, I would want to see interest of someone creating a fork of the program except for Shovelware Disks with WAD file from the early to mid 1990's.

But then you would get a huge list of hundreds of maps ingame? How would that work?

 

Better use something like this:

OK I get that, you compile them into 1 wad. Then you have this huge lost ingame? Of hundreds of maps?

Yeah, removing every single duplicate of the same levels that appear over and over again from disk to disk, wad to wad, etc.

But...how is the player to decide which to play? Even GZDoom's episode menu can only take a certain number of entries before it starts going off screen, and that number is well below the "thousands" of maps on these discs.

Huh? No matter how many duplicate maps you remove, there will still be hundreds or thousands of maps left. You won't be able to realistically use the ingame episode selection menu like Wadsmoosh does.

You *could* take the time to figure out a semi-logical sequence, and make a bunch of huge episodes. But, is that useful? Is anyone going to sit down and play 100 levels at a time? I can't really see an up-side.

Also the time taken to cover graphics and sound conflicts will be prohibitive, because that's not handled automatically, it has to be coded in.
