GOG paths for Raven games

Postby Gez » Mon Dec 21, 2020 11:06 am

The games just arrived on GOG, and you can get the whole collection for 3 bucks while the Christmas sale is going: https://www.gog.com/game/heretic_hexen_collection

So I got it and I bring you the registry keys for autodection. Like for the Doom games, the key we want is named "path", it gives the install folder (without the trailing backslash) and the IWADs are directly in the install path.
Heretic: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GOG.com\Games\1290366318
Hexen: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GOG.com\Games\1247951670
Deathkings: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\GOG.com\Games\1983497091

By the way, for Hexen and Hexen DK, the DC soundtrack is included in a subfolder named MUSIC, with filenames going from Track02.ogg to Track22.ogg. Just in case we want to support this kind of things since Raze does. Though the MIDI soundtrack is superior.

Speaking of soundtracks, GOG's HEXDD.WAD does contain the SNDINFO lump. No need for patching this one!

Github issue is here as well, so Graf should also be well aware of it by now:
