When you load weapon set that is not supported by Weapon Menu out of the box, a message will appear with a suggestion to try Autodetection. To autodetect weapons:
After you load Weapon Menu with your weapon mod, after the level starts, enter 'wmauto' in console.
Relax for 2 minutes and watch while the script cycles over all of the weapons in your weapon set. Do not do anything while script works, even if you think script does nothing. Doing something will mess up the results.
When script is finished, it reloads the level, taking away all weapons except starting weapons, so it is wise to run autodetection at the start of a new game.
Then autodetected weapon set will be remembered until the new autodetection will be run, so you can play a megawad or a bunch of maps with the same weapon mod. Remembered weapon set will be also stored in a save. But if you autodetect one weapon set, save the game with it, then autodetect another weapon set and load first save with first weapon set, autodetection data will only last until new level is started. Then you will have to autodetect again and lose acquired weapons or play without the Menu.
Autodetection system has the following limits:
no more than 50 weapons in a weapon set.
no more than 6 weapons in one slot.
weapon names are composed of internal names, so they may be a bit inaccurate.
autodetection will detect all the weapons that are in a mod (within limits), even if they are unobtainable in a game. So it is recommended to use an option to hide not acquired weapons.
