    Iwads no longer found on new PC

    Installed steam before copying over anything from steam apps. I don't think its that anyway because just to make sure i did delete doom and reinstalled it. I know its a little childish because the files are so small but i don't want multiple copies of wads around my PC :) Stupid i know. I just don't get why its giving me problems now but didn't before on the older pc... I don't want to chalk it up to the fact it's windows 10 because that OS is have been giving me nothing but crap since day 1 thats its tempted me to go back to 7 with Ryzen drivers. EDIT: ok something doesn't seem right here as a test i went to an older laptop i had with win 10 on it and installed steam. With both pc and laptop live and logged in it should be able to see games installed. On the laptop it says the games are NOT installed... Yet on the PC they are, i can even run them there in their steam dosbox versions... Yet the laptop shows no option to stream them from PC to laptop. Just installed the ultimate doom, GZdoom found it first try. Beats me whats going on... EDIT 2: Ok i think i have figured out part of the issue but not the fix. I have 2 different steam library's, one my SSD for 2 or 3 games with the rest being on my HDD. The WADS are on my HDD's which for some reason aren't finding it. When i moved installation folder to steams install folder and default steam apps (which is on my SSD) GZdoom immediately finds them no issue. Moving them BACK to the steam library on the HDD and GZdoom no longer finds it. Makes no sense my old PC had this setup and it worked fine...

    When i suspected that i tried the uninstall reinstall method, didn't work unfortunately. Should have mentioned that in my OP

    Iwads no longer found on new PC

    So i moved to a new PC today. Transferred both my GZdooms 1.6.0 and the latest version GZdoom for mods and i've run into a bit of an issue. Both GZdooms no longer detect any of the wads found in my steam folder (this includes ultimate doom, doom 2, final doom and heretic). Any idea why? Never had to edit the ini files or anything like that before, it just found them
  4. As long as no one can get into my computer or mess with my gzdoom settings through this exploit i think im good either way then :)
  5. Honestly i dont mind the music from the fluidsynth front either (although it did sound REAL different) and even if i still wanted to listen to fmod i still have 1.6.0 for that and i mostly used the OSTs found in a wad on doomdepot anyway so i rarely listened to them to begin with. Ok i guess while some people are here can anyone explain to me what this ACS security thing was with the GZdoom 3.0+ that the author was talking about? How big of an issue is it and should i be worried? https://zdoom.org/news shown on the first paragraph here.
  6. I'm sorry i never replied but i wish to thank you for the answers. Right now im using 3.1.0 but i plan on upgrading to 3.2.5 due to some security issue in 3.0 and higher apparently? Don't know much of it. But i only use GZdoom 3+ for mods and total conversions, when i feel like playing standard i still use 1.6.0. Good thing saves still work too when moving from 3.1 to 3.2.5. Ill mess around a bit because i never did the copy old ini as a test, might be something to do.
  7. So whenever i feel the need to play just doom in general i use GZdoom 1.6.0, make the sprites look how they used to by not using any texture filter mode and disabling enhanced night vision and editing a very other things like hug sizes etc. And when i feel like playing custom games like weapon mods, RPG, and some other things im looking to try like Nerves of Steel and Project Einherjar by impietwo i use 1.9.0. However Project Einherjar doesn't seem to even like 1.9.0 so i resigned myself to the fact that i need to get a new GZdoom for those mods, its about time i do a clean anyway since i had like 5 different GZdoom files, going down to 2 would be great. When i first opened 3.10 i was pretty blown away by the amount of extra options there are and its a little daunting to try and set it all up, at least from my view. I was able to get the same HUD look as i did in 1.60 and the messages too but there are a couple of things that i may not know of that i would like to ask here. 1. GZdoom 1.6's default music i think was using something called fmod right? When was it removed in GZdoom and what is it's closest alternative in GZdoom 3.10? 2. By default GZdoom 3.10 seems to use fluidsytnh, can someone explain why it sounds so different? I mean i use a WAD to change my music tracks to use their OST versions i guess you could call them because i prefer them but i didn't exactly know you could change how they sound through the sound settings like that. So yeah i kinda would like to know how that works. 3. I know this probably sounds a bit stupid but when im comparing versions and i got most of the video settings the same, i feel like Gzdoom 3.10 still has enemies moving a bit faster/smoother than 1.6.0 despite having the same dispaly settings under textures, it's proably because im a little tired but thats just how it seems to me. Did anyone else get that kinda feeling when switching over? 4. Is there a way to just copy some of the settings over and then tweak them? I'm thinking of this little idea because 3.1.0 seems to save it as gzdoom-(computername).ini so i was thinking you could copy the file over and rename it to that and then tweak to your hearts content.

    Well in case it is I will still remove for the time being until someone that's in charge of this forum says its alright, then I will put it up somewhere. EDIT: So decision made? Also I don't think these versions are sc 55s. Which are the versions that came on CD?

    Oops accidently made a new thread instead of replying, idiot moment by me If you really want I can remove it form here. I just made it so people could use the version of these tracks instead of the normal ones, there are 2 wads like this for the original dooms as well that's why I just thought to make one for plutonia

    OGG seems to work fine, question what happens if a track is used twice?

    Making a Plutonia/TNT music Wad

    Thanks guys it worked naming it with the doom 2 style. Now I just need to figure out how to make the files smaller. I mean the D2-pcmus.wad was about 64MB but if I continue doing this I think the wad ill make will reach about 100MB+ so gotta think of a way to shrink it. Any ideas? an example of 2 tracks settings, it seems I gotta lower the bit rate but I don't want to just export the tracks out of the wad because there are a couple of tracks I wish to replace. https://www.dropbox.com/s/g0x9aqzuw01l39z/doom%20music%20settings.png?dl=0 So any programs to recommend? Oh another thing is that when I put an mp3 in it seems to come up as unknown for some tracks in the wad but still works while the other wads come up as sound (mp3), whats up with that? https://www.dropbox.com/s/nvde3bdvka6xsc3/unknown.png?dl=0

    Making a Plutonia/TNT music Wad

    Hey guys, when I play DOOM I prefer to listen to the CD version of the music tracks. Example here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qURei6svd90&index=1&list=PLC0616B60014748B6 There are 2 wads for The ultimate DOOM and DOOM II that use the OST tracks but none for Plutonia so I thought I could make one for it using the OST versions for the music. The problem is I'm new to WAD editing and when I looked at both wads their naming conventions are different (DOOM 1 is like D_e1m1 and doom 2 is D2_runnin ) or something like that. Another problem is in these wads according to slade their source is MP3 and the size is pretty small. But my sound files seem to be a bit bigger (images will be posted to show difference.) Picture with difference is here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ir5brcby0o492fo/Doom%20Wad%20sizes%20from%20D2-pcmus.wad.png?dl=0 I was wondering if anyone could help me with this task
