Mods folder to autoload wads?

Post by maseter »

Idea: an optional "mods/" folder feature, where GZDoom globally autoloads any wad or pk3 placed into this folder!

Too little control. The autoload sections in the INI exist for a reason.

You can use GAMEINFO. https://zdoom.org/wiki/GAMEINFO. But I don't know if it autoload files in pk3 archive.

Not a bad suggestion for a mod author, but this user was asking for a "drop mods here" thing for an end user to use.

Furthermore, this thread was a few years old...
