Im trying to play Ultimate Doom using chocolate doom. I drag the IWAD into chocolate doom at it wont play the game. When i first downloaded it, it would play Doom 2. Now somehow its playing the Plutonia experiment. Does dragging and dropping not work? Please help!!

Chocolate Doom does not support drag and drop. The documentation (INSTALL.txt) explains how to get started:

code:
* Within Explorer, simply place the IWAD file in the same folder as the Chocolate Doom files, and double-click chocolate-doom.exe. * Run Chocolate Doom from the command prompt with the '-iwad' command line parameter to specify the IWAD file to use, eg. chocolate-doom -iwad c:\games\doom2.wad * Set the environment variable DOOMWADDIR to the location of a directory containing your IWAD files. * If you have multiple IWADs in different directories, set the environment variable DOOMWADPATH to be a semicolon-separated list of directories to search (similar to the PATH environment variable).

If you want drag-and-drop of IWADs for ChocoDoom, create a batch file, named chocolate-doom.bat (or anything else you want; the extension is important but not the name).

A .bat file is a text file, so edit it and put this single line of code in it:

code:
chocolate-doom -iwad %1

Indeed.

Or make a bunch of shortcuts for each iWAD.

You don't know how to create a text file?

In windows, Open NOTEPAD (or WORDPAD).
Type in (or copy) the line:

chocolate-doom -iwad %1

Save it as a ANSI TEXT file (not the defaults in windows) with a name like "choco.txt"

Rename it to "choco.bat"
( You could try to name it "choco.bat" in the editor, but this is safe. )

Make it executable, if your system requires that to execute the file.
(Right click, properties).
(I run Linux, so your executable requirements may vary).

Bring up a DosBox or the command line, and type in the name "choco"
example:
>> choco plutonia.wad

Just the code line I put above. (chocolate-doom -iwad %1) Nothing else is needed.

This'll fail on any stock install of Windows because the shell option to hide known file type extensions is always enabled. If you name a file this way in Notepad with that setting enabled, it will append .txt silently and invisibly to the end of every file name, even if it already has an extension.

I know you can right click on a file, choose properties, and change the filename there. Hitting OK to confirm does change the extension too if it was altered. But I don't know if that still works if hide known file type extensions is enabled.


In case anyone finds this thread wanting to drag and drop pwads with Choco Doom as well:

code:
chocolate-doom -iwad doom.wad -file %1 -skill 4 -warp 11
That would load the pwad using doom.wad (assuming it's in the same folder as Choco Doom) and start E1M1, on UV difficulty.

code:
chocolate-doom -iwad doom2.wad -file %1 -skill 3 -warp 07 -fast
Doom2 using pwad's Dead Simple replacement, Hurt Me Plenty, fast monsters.

Having a few bat files for the different episodes and iwads is very convenient if you don't want to use a launcher.
