That command line format does indeed not work currently. It's either "-x deadgame.con" or "-con deadgame.con"

Gotcha but do i need to change it in the batch file or i need to go in console and type it in, in raze

or do i need to edit the GRP in the batch file?

You can just edit the batch file, which you'd need anyway to use it with raze.exe.

Just as a general rule, all these "installation instructions" that tell you to unzip a bunch of files in the game's root folder should be ignored for Raze. You're better off loading the zip instead.

Raze is not the Build engine. I deliberately made some changes to make file loading easier. The main problem with Duke/RR is that due to Build's broken file system they had to work around some of the shit which results in having to manually specify the .con file. And since this file name is arbitrary and there's a chance of multiple .con files it cannot be easily automated

Generally, the easiest way to load such mods is to check what .con file they need to start and then from the command line use "raze -file mod.zip -con modscon.con" or write that line into a batch file

Could we get a specific file name (perhaps "autoraze.con" or similar) that will always be loaded as the base con file if present? That way, it becomes a simple matter of renaming the con file in the zip and loading it directly. I've used "game.con" for that with a few mods but I figure some may actually rely on Duke's base game.con being around.
