Beginner trying to run Doom 2 Redux

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm a total beginner to trying to play new wads for Doom 2. 

I'm using D-Fend reloaded to play Doom 2 and have downloaded Doom 2 Redux. How do I launch the D2REDUX.WAD in D-Fend?

 

Thanks for any help

Doom 2 Redux is not compatible with the vanilla Doom engine. You need a Boom compatible source port like PrBoom-plus or GZDoom to play it. These source ports work on modern operating systems, no need for DOS.

Hi, thanks for the reply. Where can I get the source ports? Is there a charge?

Thanks,

I downloaded gzdoom, unzipped it and copied D2REDUX.WAD into the directory. When I double clicked on gzdoom.exe I got a pop up window saying "execution could not continue". I'm attaching the pop up. Was I supposed to do a setup of gzdoom other than unzipping it?

 

Appreciate your help.

Do you have Doom II iwad? If not, copy and paste it in source port folder. Or if you don't have it, you can buy it on steam or other platform.

 

Edited by Myst.Haruko : You can ignore last part, I should read more carefully before responding in forum.

He said "I'm using D-Fend reloaded to play Doom 2", which implies that he has Doom2.wad already. He just needs to put it somewhere that the source port can find it.

One of the best pieces of advice I can give to anyone just getting into playing Doom WADs is to download ZDL. It makes organising and running your Doom modifications so much easier.
