Sorry, this report was a little misleading.

What I mean is, my game's IwADINFO has this:

// Must be sorted in identification order (easiest to recognize first!)

    Name = "Live Another Day"
    Autoname = "LADgame"
    Game = "Doom"
    Config = "LADgame"
    Mapinfo = "mapinfo/mindefaults.txt"
    MustContain = "LAD_IWAD"
    BannerColors = "a8 a8 a8", "2d 2d 2e"


And LADgame.pk3 only contains that one lump (LAD_IWAD) to minimally let the engine start the game.

The actual data and game content that I work on is not inside LADgame.pk3, but rather, loose files on my hard disk. To start the game for testing, I use "LADgame.exe -file ./src", the directory where all my game assets are in. I work this way because repacking the LADgame.pk3 every single time takes WAY too long.

This system used to work before this, but not anymore.

Oops. That new logic shouldn't trigger if the Zip only contains one lump.

Thanks for the very fast fix!
