Whenever I try to launch GLBoom-plus.exe I get this error:

CheckIWAD: IWAD tag C:\program files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\Ultimate Doom\base/doom2.wad not present

how do I fix this?

I guess the steam doom2 directory is one of the default directories for IWAD's.
(by the way, why is it looking for doom2.wad in the ultimate doom directory ?)

AFAIK, glboom-plus.cfg does not include a "IWAD directory" parameter...

You'll have to :
- put your doom2.wad in the same directory as glboom-plus.exe
or
- run glboom-plus with a commmand line (or a .bat file) like "glboom-plus -iwad xxx/doom2.wad" (xxx being your IWAD directory)

Well, I bought the ultimate Doom on steam a couple years ago, and then I kinda downloaded doom 2's IWAD for free.

I'll try reinstalling PRBOOM + and see how it works.

UPDATE: I found out what was happening. I accidently saved one of the maps in doom 2.wad in gzdoom builder. I managed to find another doom 2 iwad on some linux gaming site. it's all working now.

(don't mind my grammar)

Pirating doom isn't cool and I think you can get banned for it.
