Doom Builder 2 Testing Map

Recommended Posts

Been using Doom Builder 2 for a long time now and have made at least five maps so far of my 32 map wad. Problem though:

When I go to test the map now it is loading Ultimate Doom up. No idea why it is doing this as I have already selected that the map is for Doom 2, already chose the resources correctly and that the game is tested using gzdoom for doom 2 and yet it boots up Ultimate Doom for some reason.

Whats going on? It never happened before.

How the heck should we know what's going on with your computer, if you do not provide more details ?

So, now we have to play the '1000 Questions' game.

To begin with, here is the first question:

How did you set up the ( F6 ) DB2 configuration?
Since you are mapping for vanilla DOOM2, it should be something like this

Your drive/folder assignment will be most likely different though.

Here is the identical screenshot of my doom builder 2 resource list akin to yours.


Map options:

It isn't an issue with my computer rather the way that the software is being used. There are no changes to my original setup for doom builder 2 since creating my other maps. This started happening for some unknown reason.

I don't recall changing anything and by logic as you have seen on my screen shots that when I click to test the map I should have doom 2 loaded and not Ultimate doom.

Unless I am missing something...

PS I have Ultimate doom in my resources I know, but I had this before and it did not kickstart doom 1 up.

You cannot have two IWADS in the resources tab. That is inviting trouble. How is DB2 going to determine which IWAD you want to run ?

The proper way is to select a PWAD as a texture/thing resource wad.
So, extract the lumps you need from DOOM.WAD into a separate PWAD.
To do that, use SLADE 3.
Then select that PWAD, e.g. DOOM_resource.wad, with 'Add resource'.

Just to tell you, you shouldn't add Doom 1 AND Doom 2 as resources, cause they each have different textures. You'll end up with missing textures when you play, so if you want Doom 1 textures, you'll ahve to export them, and then add them to your PWAD.
