Launcher on the EDGE

Recommended Posts

Lobo has updated his FirstGen TC page with the release of version 1.15 of his Edge Shell Launcher, or ESL. What's new you say? Copy and paste time.

  • 4 Customizable Buttons that you can use to call your favorite Doom editing Apps
  • Complete change of the .ini and .elc file structure (don't worry, your old .elc files will be automatically updated when you open them)
  • Ability to choose language from inside ESL (no more separate language files)
  • Support for Deh files (Yeah, I know thats not for Edge but people asked me for it)
  • The usual bug cleanup :)

Thanx, it worked of course :-). But maybe interesting for you: win2k sp3
Installed on c: reference to y(gldoom) and z or w. Those drivers are substitions, created in a login script:
subst y: f:\doom
subst z: f:\doom\legacy\levels
subst w: f:\doom\legacy\levels\_incoming
Btw, if you would launch edge with
subst q: c:\program files\edge
this line in a batch script, it overcomes the space in names problem for nt.

I wouldn't say that EDGE is a bad port, it just needs some major reworking here and there before it can compete with the likes of, say, ZDoom or JDoom.

What the hell? Sorry dude but I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about. Care to explain all that?

If you're using winnt (nt4, 2000, xp) you can assign a drive letter to a subdirectory.
Example: c:\program files becomes f:\
So when you open my computer, a new drive appears f:\ which has the same content as c:\program files.
The way to achieve this is opening a command prompt and type in
"subst f: c:\program files"
So f: is now a substitute for the programs directory as long as your logged in.
Your program and also edge have no problems with those kind of substitute drives.

As I recall SUBST is an old DOS command from way back. So this also works for Win9x or pure DOS.

SUBST does have some hazards though, not the least of which is mass confusion:)

I think it would be much simpler if the problem gets solved at the root, i.e. the EDGE developer updates his code to be able to parse paths and names with spaces, instead of everyone who uses the port having to map drives to avoid this problem.
