Drag a file onto Zdoom's icon.
If answering such questions were dollars I'd be rich now
Don't worry, there were many before You, You're not the only one stupid :)

Go into notepad and type

zdoom.exe -file wadname.wad

Then save it in the same folder as zdoom, doom.wad/doom2.wad, and the wad you want to play, BUT change the .txt extension on the end to .bat, then double click the .bat file to play!. If you want to play a different wad, ytou can right-click on the bat file and go to 'edit' then change wadname.wad to whatever the other wad is. Also for running 'older' TC's, with seperate dehacked patches, just add this:

zdoom.exe -file wadname.wad -deh dehname.deh

Once upon a time, long ago, back in 1997, I was walking in your shoes....completely unaware of the vast vaccuum of TCs which was sucking me up....

* Sigh * Those were the days.

I used the drag and drop method to open a .wad in ZDoomGL, but I can't get the gameplay to start. If I pick New Game, it just goes into the classic levels. I know I successfully loaded the .wad, because I saw the Nulspace splashscreen on the Nulspace .wad...I just don't know how to play it.

The only thing I can think of for your Nulspace problem is that you have to run it in Doom 2, not Doom 1.
