Confinement 256 had 50 maps or so if I recall correctly, although while each map automatically follows on from another, it's not strictly continuous play  as half automatically start you with a pistol through scripting.

Eviltech, has maps 33 and 34, not sure about this: to play them in continuous, use ZDoom.

Doom II Unleashed has 40 maps, but the last eight maps are a separate episode within the megawad.

Dude, I love the term 'Megamawads' for wads with over 32 maps! I can't think of any (for single player) that haven't already been mentioned but I dig that word.

Hmmmm...

1 map = single map

8-9 maps = episode

16-18 maps = 2 episodes

24-27 maps = 3 episodes

32-36 maps = 4 episodes/megawad

2-7 10-15 19-23 28-31 maps = map pack

36+ maps = gigawad

Over 100 = some D!Zone shit

Whispers of Satan has 34 maps I think? and Bella 2 has 35 maps.
Also, doesn't the Doom 1 megawads (some of them like No End In Sight and Endless Torture) have 36 maps and consider it a "megamawad"? *thinking*

Didn't speed of doom have 33 maps (one of which only accessible by way of IDCLEV)?

It worked using -warp, idclev would not.

The issue with having over 32 maps / 4 Episodes is obviously you need an advanced source port to support it, and most megawads don't target source ports like that.

 

Naming wise, I was always a fan of Gigawad for anything over 32, but Megamawad does make me laugh!

As far as I'm aware, PrBoom+ is the only port that disallows idclev beyond 32. Even Chocolate Doom allows me to idclev to 33.

No joke?  I'd never even tried idclev in gzdoom.  I'd always do /map mapXX since the console was available.

Hmm. Wouldn't 30 maps (i.e. a Doom II WAD with all the maps replaced except the secret levels) still be considered a megawad?

And wouldn't 31 maps (i.e. a Doom II WAD with all the maps replaced except the super secret level) still be considered a megawad also?

 

:P

The accepted definition of a megawad (from idgames) is that it has at least 15 levels.

36+ maps = gigawad

Over 100 maps = some D!Zone shit
