either you need to move your iwad into the legacy working dir and reconfigure the launcher or the pwad your trying to run is for a diffrent iwad..

try moving your iwads into the legacy working dir first though..

PWAD = Patch WAD
IWAD I think stands for Internal WAD...but i'm not sure.

An IWAD contains all of the data (music, sfx, textures, sprites etc) for the game to run. A PWAD contains maybe a new map or two, some new textures, new music etc etc so it replaces it's respective thing in the IWAD.

IWAD = doom.wad, doom2.wad, plutonia.wad, heretic.wad, etc.

PWAD = dwango5.wad, mm.wad, yourwad.wad, etc.

What's the name of the custom wad (the pwad)?
