thingcount utility

Recommended Posts

I wrote a tool that can run on WADs and zips (pke/pk3) which can tally up counts of all the thing types present on all maps or on just a provided list of them, with options regarding game type (single/coop/DM) and player class (for Hexen-format maps). Tallies are counted up by skill level and printed out as a table.

It is possible to edit the scripts to create custom configurations, such as for your favorite source port or some custom project you've been working on such as a DECORATE or EDF mod.

Source code only for now, I'll throw a binary distribution for Windows up at some point.

I'm sure it's neither the first nor the only tool that can do some of the things it does. Nobody could refer me to one earlier however other than scripting it out in omgifol, so I just wrote my own (NIH syndrome symptoms fully satisfied).
The options it supports:

thingcount options:

  Required. List a WAD or PKE/PK3 archive to open.

  Change the thingtype definition script.
  Default is 'scripts/doom.cfg'

  Specify one or more maps to tabulate by map header name.
  By default, all maps will be autodetected and tabulated.

  Restrict output to a single player class for Hexen maps.
And some sample output for E1M1 in coop mode:
