Summary0001160: Requesting out-of-sequence backport of the GAMEINFO lump
Description [^]

I think that backporting support for this lump will be immensely beneficial to Zandronum modders, specifically because skulltag_actors.pk3 and skulltag_data.pk3 can now be autoloaded for wads which require their use.

This should eliminate the hundreds of threads that we constantly see on the forums. You know, the ones where newbie players ask "HELP brutal doom gives me the error 'actor minigun not found in blahblahblahblah'" and all recieve the same answer ("you need to load skulltag_actors and skulltag_data").

Included is an example of a wad which makes use of this feature.

Seconding. GAMEINFO also has a lot of cool stuff for custom games - autoloading supporting PWADs, for one, and I believe that custom IWADs with GAMEINFO don't need to have lumps to fake being a retail IWAD.

Works as intended in v2.0.
