cant get wad to run

Hey was wonmdering if anyone on this board can help with a question since im at my wits end. I made a small one room map with wad author and it contains a start point and a SS trooper, it runs fine on doom2 on the pc but when i try to run it on doom4ce on my pocket pc (ipaq) it begins to load and then quits out to the today screen. Anyone know why this happens? PLEASE HELP i cant figure this out for the life of me.

Its a port of doom for the pocket pc, a pocket pc is a little computer that can do many things and is very small. Now someone ported doom and you can play it on there.

I guess that port is not 100% perfect.

Is that a problem that doom4ce has? it only recognizes 2 or more rooms?

Technically a node builder issue - DOOM just "happens" to work.

Just try it and see.

Nah it didnt work, thanks anyway. I talked some people on a pocket pc message board and was told that doom4ce basically sucks when it comes to custom wads and jimmy never bothered to fix they issue.

Do you have a copy of any PWAD that runs on this thing? If so could you send it to me?

I have a feeling it has to do with byte ordering for the pointers. The ATARI version I worked with (for example) has the pointers in a different format suited for that processor.

If that's the case, it would be fairly easy to fix that problem by writing a little convertor. I can tell if I see a PWAD that works.
