Hi, I modify a map with Doom Builder v2.0.1.1157 by deleting an item and save the modified DOOM2.WAD file. When Freedoom starts with that modified DOOM2.WAD file, the console window and a popup message say "CheckIWAD: IWAG tag doom2.wad not present" and the starting process terminates without displaying the intro screen. I guess this means that the new DOOM2.WAD does not have the proper format, but I don't have any idea what went wrong. Can anybody help? TIA Ulrich

You cant edit iwads, well you really shouldnt...its a bad thing.

If you must edit you need a hex editor. Change the very first letter "p" to "i" to make the iwad tag.


More importantly why did you edit it? Was a map too hard or buggy? Which map and what thing was removed?

That is ridiculous. If people want to edit their iwad(s), the tools should not get in their way.

Silent conversions are what is bad.

Ya I know people can do what they want. I gave him exact directions. But iwads with bad md5sums can be annoying at times. Since this is freedoom it doesnt matter as much.

Making a pwad or experimenting with pwads I think would be much more preferred. Making a pwad from an iwad map, so iwad remains untouched also. Freedoom updates somewhat often and at times can be updated every day. With a pwad a person wont lose their changes or be forced to use an outdated iwad.

It really depends upon the editor, and I do not know DoomBuilder.
With yadex, you must always run the wad through a node builder after editing.
With an IWAD, you may even have to run it through a wad builder.

Best way to edit an IWAD:
Explode it with deutex into its components.
Edit the level you want with a level editor.
Reassemble the IWAD using deutex.
Deutex is available in xwadtools (for Linux and Dos)
