Chocolate Doom wont play custom wads

Recommended Posts

So I've been trying to get my chocolate doom to run a map I map that was really basic just a big square to test if it will work. Chocolate Doom runs fine as long as i execute it as:


pi@raspberrypi: ~/Doom $ chocolate-doom -iwad DOOM1.WAD


How would i go about playing like a custom made level from doom builder?


Any and all help is appreciated!!

I ended up figuring it out. The iwad I was using was shareware, so, doesn't work. ran with DOOM.WAD and everything is running nice now.

Like in any other port: By using '-file wadname.wad'.


Not quite. Modern style PWAD loading is actually done via the -merge command, plain -file replicates vanilla's extremely limited behavior.

-merge is mainly useful when loading a wad that contains custom sprites. If the wad doesn't contain custom sprites, -file typically works just fine. If the wad contains custom sprites and uses a DEHACKED trick that makes vanilla accept them, -file also works fine as long as the DEHACKED is loaded via -deh or -dehlump.
