How Do You Make Folders in SLADE??

Postby Borpo The Wizard1 » Mon Apr 12, 2021 8:24 pm

(I am very stressed so I may sound aggressive) I've been looking all over the damn place to try and figure out how to make a damn folder in SLADE. I don't know where else to look, or where to post this type of thing. If you can provide a way to make a fuckin folder that would be fantastic, and if I am posting in the wrong place, please guide me to the.. y'know, right place. I've spent longer than I'd like to admit, and I'm not very smart. argh

Well, you are smart enough to ask for help. :D

The simple answers is: You don't.
You have to set up the folder structure in Windows File Explorer first.
Then save as pk3 and load that into Slade3 and then import all the assets.

edit:
I appears that, according to Kinsie and Gez, I stand corrected. 8-)
However, having tried the New Directory approach just now, I still prefer the File Explorer method. In time that may change though.

This is a slightly older version. I'm told in newer ones you can just right-click.

Important note for complete newbies: creating folders/directories is entirely impossible in WAD files. This is because WAD files are just not capable of containing directories. This is a limitation of the WAD format, not of SLADE. If the option to create a directory is not available, check the type of archive you have opened...
