something is very wrong with my GZDoom

Recommended Posts

So recently i packaged a wad and gzdoom for a friend that had no doom experience (you know so they just have to drag and drop the wad),and now everytime i try to run GZDoom it says the following and i need help working this out.So if you might know the solution hit me up.

I think its because they were 2 directories maybe its my Iwad thats broken idk

Perhaps try deleting the .ini file in your GZDoom folder.  Something might have been added to that GZDoom isn't finding when it's trying to run.

i did that multiple times, i noticed that deleting my steam copy changed something maybe its because theres multiple .ini files colliding with eachother?

Make a new folder then extract the latest GZDoom in there. Then copy doom2.wad in there. If you want, copy your ini file into that folder, too. Or set the options manually to how you want them.

I doubt this has anything to do with your INI. It looks much more serious, hinting to a driver incompatibility or other graphics problem. A driver update may be required. What is the OS and GPU/CPU?

sounds more like a missing library or 4(.dll files) the opengl library would be my guess. in which case a reinstall of gzdoom should fix it

He must have drag and dropped some of the files by accident. That's why I recommend he sets up GZDoom again in a new folder.

i did multiple times,still wont boot,it worked fine until i got the new version (which is the cause of all this)

if it worked before you packaged doom and not after, then something  changed. either a game file or a system file was moved/removed/ corrupted. game files are fairly easy to replace,(which is why we suggest you start there) these days system files are tricky...have you tried running other games to see if it is a global problem?

everything else works fine, its just GZDoom,but right now my issue is a black screen with a cursor and sound

then it is likely a missing game file. bear in mind that 'we' are not there looking over your shoulder so, we have to rely on you to be 'our' eyes and ears to trouble shoot. also keep in mind that usually problems are simple in nature. did you try creating a new folder(empty) and unzipping a new copy of the Gzdoom archive into the new folder, then drag a copy of Doom.wad/ doom2.wad to this new folder(do not put anything else in there yet). next try to run the game. please let us know your results, thank you

-edit-

do not use a 'windows shortcut' to try running the game.

Try delete the shadercache.zdsc file in %localappdata%\zdoom\cache (the "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\zdoom\cache" folder on your disk where <username> is the name of your Windows user).

 

If this works, please let me know the name of your graphics card.

I knew there was some sort of hidden folder somewhere, ill try it out right now

-Edit-
theres nothing in the cache folder can i get a quick explanation?

I must have downloaded like 9 GZDoom copies deleting em and getting another one afterwards

the results were the same i even tried QZDoom

You can also get the "legacy" version of GZDoom instead of the "modern" one.

You didn't specify which graphics card being used so I speculated it might have been an Intel GPU. The shadercache.zdsc file contains pre-compiled shader binaries for Intel to speed up application launch. It is a relatively new feature and I wondered if it had gotten corrupted. It is also only used for Intel as the other vendors implement their own caches.

 

The errors in your initial dialog comes from your graphics card OpenGL driver. Essentially it is saying that it can't link the shader because of an "unspecified error". Note that it is the driver itself that uses the phrase "unspecified error" and not GZDoom. There is a good chance your graphics driver got corrupted somehow - maybe you can fix the problem by reinstalling the display driver. If you are really unlucky the driver has a bug in it and may require a newer version of the driver.

how can i go about doing that?

You should specify which graphics card you are using.

If you do not know, then run an app like Speccy or GPU-Z

 

Run the game from a batch file and specify the +logfile name.txt

and upload that.

i have an AMD Radeon HD 6250 (i know,crap), and ill try that right now

The logfile, whatever you may have called it, is generated and stored in the GZDOOM folder.

 

In my case, I have to generate two files, because +logfile alone only generates a list a loaded files, plus an autoexec.cfg file with logfile "startup.txt" which generates this text
