Doom Wads don't run in prboom
« on: June 10, 2010, 04:59:06 am »
I got a set of about 100 doom wads and I have retail wads from old dics and the only ones that run are final doom and doom 2, and a select few good wads.
I am using gmenu2x and local pack v0.35.

Its quite easy to do this:
Just create such scripts
Quote
#!/bin/sh
cd /usr/local/games/czdoom
chmod +x prboom ; ./prboom -file QUAKE2.wad
And put them in one folder. (/boot/local/gmenu2x/scripts/DoomGoo/TotalConversions/ for example)
Create a doomgoo file in /local/gmenu2x/sections/games.
Quote
title=DoomGoo
icon=skin:icons/games/doomgoo.png
exec=/bin/sh
clock=336
gamma=100
backlight=100
selectordir=/boot/local/gmenu2x/scripts/DoomGoo/TotalConversions/
And you can select them with gmenu2x. I think its already in my localpack.

Figured out the problem.
The wads set I got had multiple prboom files and I was using the wrong one for the different wads.
Now time to make more links.

So I tried using santino's scripts, but when I choose the scripts, it quickly flashes a series of error messages before going back to gmenu2x, including "cannot cd /usr/, etc. etc."  I'm certain that the folder does actually exist.  Anyone have any clue what's going on?

cant remember exactly but i think had to change a directory or config file, because it was wrong and still used dmenu

Just make sure all the paths look right
