Doom WADS?
« on: March 18, 2020, 04:44:09 am »
Is there currently a way to play custom WADS yet? I'd really like to play Sigil, aka Doom Episode 5 on the go, and some of the other custom wads out there would be nice too.

Some you "Total Conversion" WAD files can run fine... Which firmware are you running ? You can use PRboom+ by Ninoh-FOX if you are using Rogue CFW https://github.com/Ninoh-FOX/PrBoom-plus-for-RG350/releases

I could not boot Sigil though...

Lots of TC wads here :) http://www.harteex.com/hosted/a320.freeforums.org/doomgoo-for-dingux-1-1-update-t932.html

I am on the latest rogue,was originally using PrBoom, but turning the sticks on and getting the controls all set up was annoying af compared to Odamex's native dual stick support. I also couldn't jump or actually get free aim and a crosshair in PrBoom, which was a bummer as i've grown used to playing doom with these features on pc. I suppose I will have to reinstall it and mess with these wads since it appears they will run. This is awesome, thank you!

Edit: I cannot get a single one of them to launch lol

I have a lot of them running fine... Some do not run.... You still a bunch of options :)

1) Use Open Package Creator and 7zip... Unpack Freedoom, oda_freedoom ,zdoom, chocolate doom or one of the others engines to a folder using 7zip...

No replace whatever wad is listed (for example remove doom2.wad and rename CounterStrike wad cs01.wad to doom2.wad) then drag n drop the folder into Open Package Creator and choose "Use Existing" the middle option to repace as an OPK.

You can also playabout with different versions of each doom /wad emulator. I think "oda_freedoom" may be best just google it or try one of these repo's

https://github.com/retrogamehandheld/OpenDingux

https://github.com/SeongGino/RetroGame350-AppRepo

Another option is to use ZDoom and rename your wad files... "add" .bin after the .wad for example

007Goldeneye.wad
007Goldeneye.wad.bin

I hope this makes sense... I have got a lot of games running, but not all of them...

What about stuff (PWADS mainly) that has to use an IWAD as a base?

Cool. Icarus (for example) is one famous old WAD that requires the Doom 2 WAD as its asset base. The process you use for that should then work with any PWAD that doesn't require ZDoom or a similar grade of source port.

Also, do you happen to know what the primary PWAD repo is? If not, its at Doomworld.

Hmm. I kinda assumed that since you're helping with Classic Doom related stuff, you'd know. Anyway it's at https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/ Thanks

Hey Jellyfish....

I got the mods working on my LDK using the RetroFW 2.0 and files provided by scooterpsu
link below:
https://github.com/scooterpsu/chocolate-doom-modlauncher/releases
https://github.com/scooterpsu/czdoom/releases

I will try and get these going on the RG350 / Pocket Go 2 by messing about with files and emulators... "Fingers Crossed"  :)

Hi, this is my first post on the forum.
I just made an OPK file from prboom+ with a different launcher to get Doom mods on the RG350.

from this opk :

https://github.com/Ninoh-FOX/PrBoom-plus-for-RG350/releases

I just modify the prboom launcher file.

I use the czdoom mods data.

https://github.com/scooterpsu/czdoom/releases/download/latest

I don't know how to share it nor if I have to ask permission from anybody to do it.
Can someone help me or is interested in this ?

Thank you in advance
And thanks to all developpers for all this wonderful work!

Just post a link here... I will give it a go, be sure you DO NOT include any "Retail" doom WAD files and you will be fine :)

thanks

Ok, I think I removed all retail wads and a README shows the missing wads to make it run.

Hope you enjoy  ;)

Great thanks, I will give it shot :) I have some other WAD games from the Dingoo A320 I might try adding :)

Thanks again
