    Warming Up
  1. I can't find either of those filfes. That didn't seem to change anything. I don't have any PC speakers. The computer I'm having trouble with is hooked up to a TV, and the TV speakers are its only audio output.

    Chocolate Doom

    I made a thread about this a few days ago because I thought I was having a problem specific to Chocolate Hexen, but I now realize it's also affecting Chocolate Doom. Basically, right now both of them immediately crash a few seconds after booting into the main menu. It's usually right when the demonstration starts up, or a few seconds after I start playing the game. The setup exes for both of them crash after running for a few seconds too. This is happening for both Chocolate Doom 3.0.0 and Chocolate Hexen 3.0.0 which I downloaded from the downloads page at the wiki. I'm running both on Windows 10. The Hexen iwad is from Steam and the Doom iwad is from GOG. The weirdest thing is that I'm also running both on another system I have that's running the same version of Windows 10, and both of them run fine there. I keep checking for differences in the installation on each system. On the system where they're both not working I've installed both ports totally fresh, on the other I've been playing them a while and probably did some stuff to the cfg but can't remember what exactly. I even tried copying the entire Chocolate Hexen installation from the computer where it works to the one where it isn't, and I get the same result. I also tried launching from PowerShell but I get the same result. I've tried installing on the C drive and other drives but that doesn't seem to have any effect.
  3. What does that mean? I clicked "Open PowerShell Here" because that's all that was there, typed "chocolate-hexen" and hit Enter, and got the same result as before. It opened to the main men and then crashed after a few seconds. No error log or anything, it just went back to the desktop. What's weird is I have this running on another system with the same version of Windows 10 and it works fine. I think I even had Chocolate Doom running fine on this system for a while last year, and then it suddenly started crashing one day. Couldn't figure out why.
  4. If PowerShell is the same thing, I tried it in that and got the same result.
  5. Come to think of it I did recently have problems with Chocolate Doom crashing on that system right after booting. I downloaded both from the official page (the Doom WAD was from GOG though). https://www.chocolate-doom.org/wiki/index.php/Downloads
  6. No it doesn't. Both Chocolate Hexen and Chocolate Hexen Setup still crash within a few seconds of launching. These are fresh installs.
  7. I'm trying to reinstall Chocolate Hexen on another system but the game crashes within a few seconds of starting. I don't remember having this problem on the last system, even though both are running the same version of Windows 10 and both with the commercial IWAD from Steam. The only difference is on the new system I'm not installing the game on the C drive, whereas on the old system I was. Even the Chocolate Hexen setup exe crashes a few seconds after starting. I saw the answers on this subject in the Chocolate Doom FAQ and I know it's not the option menu mouse sensitivity problem because Chocolate Hexen crashes even if I don't access the options menu. It simply crashes within a few seconds of either starting the game or starting the demo movie, so it might be the playback fail problem. However, I don't get any error message. I want to keep using this source port because I'm in the middle of a save file I started in Chocolate Hexen. ZDoom can't read the hxs save files Chocolate Hexen seems to generate, can it?

    Launching Chocolate Hexen through Steam

    This is what's in the base folder. The dosbox exe is the renamed chocolate hexen exe. Edit: I can't post now for some reason so I can only edit this post. I tried the whole process again on another system (my current system only has one drive and Steam won't let me create more than one library per drive), then I copied the config files from that system to this one. Whenever I boot through Steam, Steam seems to create two new config files just outside the base folder, so I overrote those config files and set them to read-only, then something else happened. Now if I launch through Steam it launches in fullscreen (even though I set fullscreen to "0" in the config files)... but WITH my changes to the controls.

    Launching Chocolate Hexen through Steam

    I just tried both. The first one didn't seem to do anything. The second thing booted up the setup file, but upon saving and launching the game still went into fullscreen and reverted to default controls, no matter what I'd changed the settings to in the setup.
  10. I'm trying Hexen for the first time, so I install it with Chocolate Hexen to get the most vanilla experience I can outside DOSBOX, but I also still want to launch it through Steam and have Steam count my play time on the game, so I do the trick where you rename the executable to make Steam launch Chocolate Hexen. The problem is, whenever I launch through Steam, it launches Chocolate Hexen with default settings. I'd already gone into the setup launcher, changed the controls, and set it to launch windowed. When I launch the exe directly from the File Explorer, it launches with my settings, but launching through Steam ignores these settings. I've tried looking through the config files but there are like four of them and I've tried to single out which one Steam actually uses. I'm running Windows 10 if that matters.
