How do you record Demos?

So, would I edit the file name from ZDOOM to ZDOOM -record MAP01.lmp?


That is what you need to add yes, but you place it on the command line.

One way to do that is to create a shortcut and enter it's properties, where you add the commands to the end of the file path.

e.g C:\...\ZDoom.exe -record MAP01.lmp

How would I record a custom map?
When I drag+Drop my .wad onto the shortcut, it loads the regular game. :/


It would appear drag and drop doesn't work if you have anything on the command line. Hence you will have to also use the command line to load your wad.

The command for this is -file.

e.g -file xxxxxxx.wad

Yes, or use a launcher. :P

Yeah, shortcuts seem to be retarded. (Or maybe source ports are at fault?) A batch file works fine, apparently. Paste a shortcut's command line into a text file, and add input variables:

D:\DOOM\8\exec\prboom+\prboom+.exe -record lol -skill 4 -warp 03 %1 %2 %3 %4 %5 %6 %7 %8 %9
