How to play custom WADs?

Recommended Posts

After downloading a custom map like Scythe or Alien Vendetta, how to you actually configure the downloaded file to pay it on a source port like crispy doom or prboom+? Do I just copy the WAD file and send it to the source port file?

Drag and drop over the source port executable, it's that simple.

if you want more options open up command line or a batch file

typing some nonsense like "prboom-plus -iwad doom2 -file av.wad -complevel 9 -nomusic" can be pretty powerful

This will not work with Chocolate or Crispy Doom.

You can open your notepad and copypaste a command line: 
Crispy-doom -merge WADNAME.wad

 

Change "WADNAME" with the pwad you want to play. Then save the file with a .CMD extention:

If want to play maps for Doom 1, use this:

Crispy-doom -iwad doom.wad -merge WADNAME.wad

I have two questions: cmd instead of bat?  -merge instead of -file?

"-merge" will work for both crispy and chocolate doom, since vanilla can't load custom sprites without "merging" them. You can use "-file" on chocolate if you're not gonna use sprites, but "-merge" is a better option by default.

 

I don't know any difference between bat or cmd though. I think you can use any of them.

Thank you for explaining that.  I guess it shows that I have never played Chocolate or Crispy.  It has been ages since I played vanilla.  I did write a lot of bet files back in the day.
