How to watch demos?

Recommended Posts

I've received a demo from someone who played my map, but I'm not sure how to view it. What kind of ports/commands do I need to watch it?

Step 1: Create a shortcut of the port you're planning to play the demo on.

 

Step 2: Open the properties menu of the shortcut, go to the target line, and type -playdemo [demoname].lmp (You may also need to -file the wads that the demo needs. Ex: -file textures.wad -file levelpak.wad)

 

Step 3: Witness doom loading up and playing the demo.

This is my way of playing demos, feel free to follow other instructions if this doesn't seem to fit for you.

You can also drag the wad and the demo lump to the source port executable, works for PrBoom+ and i assume it works for other ports

You can also use ZDL (this is what I do), set it up, move the wad for the demo into the PWAD section and type in the extra command line arguments field "-playdemo [demo]".
