zdoom-name.ini path entries

Postby Kappes Buur » Fri Jul 25, 2003 6:33 pm

[IWADSearch.Directories]
Path=L:/orgwads
Path=$DOOMWADDIR
Path=$HOME
Path=$PROGDIR

[FileSearch.Directories]
Path=$PROGDIR
Path=$DOOMWADDIR

I know, that the top_path is for the IWAD files. But what are the other entries for?

[IWADSearch.Directories]
Path=L:/orgwads
Path=$DOOMWADDIR
Path=$HOME
Path=$PROGDIR

Well, the $DOOMWADDIR(Directory that doom.wad is located?), $HOME(Base dir?), and $PROGDIR(Directory that ZDoom.exe is located) paths are used if the first path(L:/orgwads) doesn't contain any Iwads for ZDoom to run...

[FileSearch.Directories]
Path=$PROGDIR
Path=$DOOMWADDIR

These are used to find files that are loaded with the command line or pullin command without specifying a directory.

Thank you, Destroyer, for trying to help. But, can anyone give a definitive answers?

This is the original ini_file contents:

[IWADSearch.Directories]
Path=.
Path=$DOOMWADDIR
Path=$HOME
Path=$PROGDIR

[FileSearch.Directories]
Path=$PROGDIR
Path=$DOOMWADDIR

The top entry points to where the IWADS are located, hence I entered the path to them --> L:/orgwads

But what are the other path entries for??

The top 4 entries are for locating your IWADS. You can add as many Path= lines as you wish, which is how I'm set up for Doom/Heretic/Hexen at the moment.

[IWADSearch.Directories]
Path=.
Path=$DOOMWADDIR
Path=$HOME
Path=$PROGDIR
Path=G:\Heretic
Path=G:\Hexen

You should probably keep the original 4 lines for whatever.

The next 2 entries that are under [FileSearch.Directories] are for locating additional files, like PWADs, deh files, etc. And again, you may add however many in there that you wish.

$DOOMWADDIR is an evironment variable which you probably don't have set, but the original Linux Doom supported it.

$HOME is your home directory. I don't remember if this get's set to anything under Windows.

$PROGDIR is the directory zdoom.exe is in.

You...just put the IWAD in the same directory as Zdoom and it should run fine.

Next time, don't bump a thread that is older than you.

Next time, leave the warnings to people actually qualified to do so.
