How do you play WADS on ZDoom? IDK how since I don't get the menu launcher screen anymore like in the normal game.

Is the exe the folder? I already dragged it in like the normal Doom, but I also need the normal Doom's IWAD, and when I load the game and the level, it dosen't start.

"exe" refers to "executable", or in this case "zdoom.exe". All you have to do is put the IWAD you want to use and the PWAD in the same directory as zdoom.exe. Then drag the PWAD file into zdoom.exe.

Alternatively you can create a shortcut of the executable and use command line parameters in the "target" box. Useful for a bit more control. There should be a text file that comes with zdoom that outlines the various parameters

Like this: C:\Doom\zdoom.exe -iwad doom2.wad -file scythe.wad -fast -skill 4 -warp 07

It's weird that this is one of the easiest ports to use yet it gets so much frequently obvious basic wad loading questions.

How do you type with boxing gloves on your hands?
