IWAD error
« on: September 30, 2013, 03:30:19 pm »
Strife and Hexen both give "IWAD not found" errors...  I own retail versions of Hexen and Strife so I have the WAD files but I need to know where to place them.  Thanks,

Thanks Johnny, i just added chocolate doom to my Zero today your info helped get strife and hexen running.
just to note, its case-sensitive so make sure your .wad files are lower-case, not caps.

Many thanks!  I've been banging my head against the wall for days.  On to more old-school FPS goodness.

I just popped my hexen.wad, strife1.wad, and voices.wad into the folder (after renaming the files to be all lowercase) and now Hexen and Strife work perfectly!  Thanks everyone! :)

Since nobody answered you, and for the legacy: there is now "chocolate setup" in the games tab. Here, you can setup your inputs.
