    ZDoom 2.1.4.

    I'll try that

    Bob Larkin who runs DoomWadStation I believe stated that he had exclusive distribution of Strain but I might be wrong. I have sent him an email regarding the new distribution method. If he accepts I will send him the new file and the program needed to open it. The files are: *A txt document stating how the original method was done and how to use 7zip to extract the files from the new file. *The new file created by 7zip which inlcudes: 1.CWD 2.DEHACKED 3.DEHACKED.txt 4.Strain.bat 5.Strain.txt 6.Strain.deh 7.Strain.wad (the file made after combining the 4 strain files) 8.StrainFE *If it is legal to do so I will include 7zip. If not, there is a url in the new txt pointing the user where to get 7zip. I think this will keep new users, like myself, from asking a lot of questions on how to get Strain to work. Thus freeing up space on these forums and keeping bandwidth down, and thats something Doomworld Forums expects right. It works for all of us in a positive way. If Bob accpets I'm sending it, disregarding the original txt and therefore making it easier on all of us.

    ZDoom 2.1.4.

    I tried that and it works with some of my wads. but I have them in subdirectories so i had to copy all of ZDoom into that directory and then the IWad files. I know how to fix that. --- Fixed that and figured out how to use the other wads. I jsut wanted an easier way to do this such as using shortcuts for each wad depending on which wad I wanted to play. It's simple when doing this with Diablo 2 or my C&C mods however it doesn't seem to want to work the same way with ZDoom.

    Well I have now placed the already combined and other neccesary files into the zip folder. You will need 7zip in order to extract the information from the combined file. you can find it in the txt file found within the zip folder. Now, disregarding the original txt file of Strain which does not allow for this, which is actually ridiculous this day in the modern age, who wants to host this file? To make it easier on anyone that wants Strain? i don't think ADA (Alpha Dog Alliance) will mind since i don't think they are operational any longer. For instance the email provided does not work and their website does not work, for me at least it is "Forbidden" by the servers or something, dunno why. I don't see why it matters anyways, no alterations to the program or the wad have been made, its just a much faster install process.

    Why not just do it? How about I just archive the wad using 7zip, uplaod it to a site and just fucking do it dude. it would make it a lot easier for us noobs out there and since 3.5 file distribution is damn near extinct why the hell not? In fact I think i will.

    ZDoom 2.1.4.

    I recently downloaded ZDoom 2.1.4 and I must say that it looks great. I am new to mods/wads and so far I am enjoying them immensely, i just have one small problem. I can't seem to get ZDoom to launch any of my wads, some which require Zdoom to operate. I have looked on the Zdoom site and the instructions they give do not help. I do not want to change the program itself since I would have to keep changing it over and over again when i want to play different things with it. I could just make multiple copies of the zdoom.exe and its required files and place them into the wad folders but then I would have to copy all of the IWad files as well and that is a waste of space. then again, i do not know where to add the command lines. The Zdoom site had a nother option, creating a shortcut and changing the path to where it will load the desired wad, just like when loading Diablo 2 mods. But the site calls the command box "Link to", I do not have a Link To box. I have Start in and Target. I experimented with these and did what i would have done when using Diablo 2 mods but I either get an error message of a bad directory path or Zdoom loads without loading the mod in question. I looked all over the ZDoom site and I could not find anything I need. Can Someone explain this to me in simple and easy to understand terms without all the techno crap? I would have placed this question in one of the other ZDoom threads but they are either not on this topic or they have degenerated into a mindless argument over which source ports are better and therefore offer no answers in terms of my question.

    I tried Graf Zahl's method of installation. when i opened unpack.bat it stays open for a second then closes. so i edit the bat program and add the following line just after the line "@echo off" : Unpack "c:\program files\doom collector's edition\strain10" "c:\program files\doom collector's edition\doom2" This is to the the way graf said to input the line. When I run the bat again the prompt comes up but its just a blank screen and no input can be made. If I turn echo on, well you can imagine what it does im sure, infinite loop of course. If I delete @echo off i also get an infinite loop. If I place my line before @echo off I get an infinite loop. Here is the Bat Program in its entirety, just tell me where to put my line, if thats what I do: @echo off if "%1"=="" goto usage if "%2"=="" goto usage if not "%3"=="" goto usage if not exist %1\strain.001 goto bad_ddir if exist %2\unpack.bat goto skip_cp echo Creating STRAIN directory... md %2 >NUL :skip_md if exist %0 goto cp_plain if not exist %0.bat goto copy_error copy %0.bat %2\unpack.bat >NUL goto cp_cont :cp_plain copy %0 %2\unpack.bat >NUL :cp_cont %2\unpack.bat %1 %2 :skip_cp if not exist %2\unpack.bat goto copy_error echo Copying file strain.001... copy/b %1\strain.001 %2\strain.exe >NUL if errorlevel 1 goto copy_error :lk_file2 if exist %1\strain.002 goto cp_file2 echo Insert STRAIN Disk 2 into %1 and press any key... pause > NUL if not exist %1\strain.002 goto lk_file2 :cp_file2 echo Copying file strain.002... echo copy/b %2\strain.exe+%1\strain.002 %2\strain.exe >NUL copy/b %2\strain.exe+%1\strain.002 %2\strain.exe >NUL if errorlevel 1 goto copy_error :lk_file3 if exist %1\strain.003 goto cp_file3 echo Insert STRAIN Disk 3 into %1 and press any key... pause > NUL if not exist %1\strain.003 goto lk_file3 :cp_file3 echo Copying file strain.003... copy/b %2\strain.exe+%1\strain.003 %2\strain.exe >NUL if errorlevel 1 goto copy_error :lk_file4 if exist %1\strain.004 goto cp_file4 echo Insert STRAIN Disk 4 into %1 and press any key... pause > NUL if not exist %1\strain.004 goto lk_file4 :cp_file4 echo Copying file strain.004... copy/b %2\strain.exe+%1\strain.004 %2\strain.exe >NUL if errorlevel 1 goto copy_error echo Unpacking distribution files... cd %2 %2\strain if errorlevel 1 goto unpack_error echo Cleaning up the temporary directory... del %2\strain.exe >NUL goto credits :copy_error cls echo ÉÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍÍ» echo º S T R A I N º echo º Copyright 1996,97 -- Alpha Dog Alliance º echo ÇÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄÄĶ echo º There was an error concatenating the files. º echo º º echo º - Make sure that you have at least 20 MB available on the drive where you º echo º are installing STRAIN and that you are able to write to the directory º echo º that you have specified. º echo º º echo º - Make sure that the parent directory exists.

    Neat. With 7-Zip I can unzip .rar files which means I can get those Morrowind Mods I've been after. Well I extracted with 7-zip. It was the same situation when using WinZip. So I just renamed Strain.001 to Strain.exe and that unloaded the Strain.Wad and the other neccessary files. I launched Doom95, formt he Collectors edition, and I used the Strain.Wad. I get a bad lumps error. In the Strain Folder is a program called StrainFE, I run it and the installation program comes up, which is good. Except it does not recognize the filepath in which the Collectors edition is stored in, it only wants the follwoing path "C:\Doom2" I will now try to make a filepath to that directory. If you have any ideas I am open to suggestion.

    THE CP won't do it. I think there is a bad line in the batch file that is supposed to install the Wad. I've tried numerous changes to the batch file and nothing works. I think that instead of displaying the information you need to know so you can properly change/install the program, the batch file just ends. I've tried to cahnge its lines so that it never ends but the same thing still happens. I think I'll just delete the wad and forget about it.

    I recently downloaded a megawad called Strain. It can be found here: doomwadstation.com in the total conversions part of the site. It isn't on the TC List so you will have to scroll down to see it. Anyways, after extracting the files I notice that there is no Wad file. I read the Txt that was included and it said to run the unpack.bat. I did so but MS DOS just blinks and the ends. I am currently using WinXP SP2. Is there anyone out there that has this TC and can tell me what I am doing wrong?

    Futuristic Doom

    Well, i got it working for the Doom95 Launcher. I made a very simple mistake, instead of extracting H2P into a new folder found inside the Doom2 Folder I had extracted all H2P files into the Doom 2 Folder. This caused the Doom95 Launcher to confuse the Doom2.wad and the Hell2pay.wad thus trying to load them both as the default Wad. By placing H2P inside a new folder the Doom95 Launcher loads the Doom2.wad first and then the H2P.wad. Now that i know how to get it to work I'll go download some other wads. Thanks for all the help.

    Futuristic Doom

    Alrigth Grazza. i will not post where I got the file from. i did however get Zdoom as suggested above. For some reason I cannot get ZDoom to load the wad. I have tried Autoloading it by making another shortcut, much to the same as one would do for a Diablo 2 mod, it doesnt work. The tutorials and information on the ZDoom Wiki are either incorrect or they are not specified towards windows XP. Or I am doing something wrong. i will keep tinkering with it though.

    Futuristic Doom

    I am having problems. When I try to load Hell2Pay i get an error message "Bad Music Number 184". I believe this has to do with the version of Doom I have. I have the Collection. The highest version supported by H2P is 1.9. I don't think it will work with the collectors edition.
