Load WAD from shortcut or batch script without IWAD window?

Post by Guest »

Hello,

Is there a way to load a WAD from from either a windows shortcut or batch script without the IWAD selection window?

For example, if I want to load NERVE.WAD which requires Doom 2 is there a way to indicate that the WAD needs Doom 2 through a command line argument rather then manually having to select Doom 2 from the selection window so that I can bypass that step?

-file "c;\location to wad\NERVE.WAD" for example still forces you to manually select the game in GZDoom before it will load.

I know that ZDL does remove this step if you create a INI file but from what I can tell there's no way to tell ZDL to load a WAD without having to open the utility and select it manually which can't be done with a shortcut or batch script.

Thanks in advance.

Add -iwad doom2 to that command line.
