We need more specs than that. Other hardware, version of windows, yadda yadda blah blah.

AS WELL AS any error information it reports when it starts up. That's probably the most important stuff you can tell us if you really want us to help you get it going. =P

Stopped responding? Did it load then freeze when trying to start a game? Does it freeze right when it is loading? Be more specific.

Tell us about your version of Doom. Where it is installed. What version of ZDoom you're using. How you installed it. The whole deal... one of us has probably had a similar problem.

Ok its doom2 version 1.9 ZDoom version 1.22
i installed the dos version of doom on my c:\Games\ drive
then unzipped zdoom into that directory.
when I start zdoom it sounds like its loading
but it only gets to a black screen where you should see the quake like loading. after a few minutes I press ctrl alt del it says not responding next to zdoom.
The reason I think the problem is zdoom is because I
Can run more advanced games like hexen 2 and quake 2
just fine, but not ZDoom.

The only problem I've had with ZDoom is not getting all the files unzipped into the directory. Sometimes if you don't have Windows showing you all files, even hidden ones, you may not copy all the required files. But you said you unzipped it in there, so that may not be a problem.

He's talking about the console displaying settings information and loading status as it starts Godammit.

So you installed Doom to C:\Games? That's kinduva loose folder.

I would've put it in C:\Games\Doom instead, and made sure ZDoom was in the same place.

Maybe that's what you did but you didn't specify as such.

Could be graphics problem, open zdoom.cfg and set this line set vid_noptc "1"

It's in C:\Games\Doom2
I tried the noptc 1 same Problem
What does that mean are there more than just 0 and 1?
I hope I dont have to use Doom 95
