When you load a map up using ZDoom, exactly what does ZDoom do?

<wannabe techno-dude> Yeah, it digs into the RAM for binary info from the WAD file, then it checks your bios for appropriate video card settings... after that, it uses a text editor specified in the .ini to draw ASCII art and copy it into a hidden .dat Zdoom file, which the .exe reads as the graphics of the level. </wannabe techno-dude>

It converts the Doom map format to its internal Hexen-style format dynamically...

When you install Zdoom a secret command is run. This command is black magic, which spawns a little wizard in your computer. When you go to run a wad with Zdoom the wizard casts a spell allowing you to play it.

Not really a kid. Not really an airbag. WHAT THE HELL IS IT?!? Who's asking? Are you French? An airbag is a safety device in a car that inflates during a collision and blocks you from smashing your head into the dashboard or steering wheel!

Probably because you're not trying to run ZDoom WADs with it.

And why wait till the topic has gotten off track before moving it to its relevant forum?

What if the death was the woman cut your "member" off and you bled to death? That would not be fun.

Dammit, boys, stick to the subject!

Oh yeah. Only the newest version of ZDoom really crashes a lot. 1.22 r0x0rs for me.
Legacy runs some WADs fine, but has a really big problem running Immoral Conduct and other mods I have.

ZDoom doesn't crash on me, only sometimes when I start it the keyboard freezes, so that I can't exit the game or anything. I don't think that's ZDoom's fault, as the very same thing happens with EDGE too.
