GZDoom doesn’t discover IWADs on the D: drive

Postby Undead » Wed Jul 03, 2019 2:19 am

I tried installing Doom 2, Heretic, and Strife: Veteran Edition on the D: drive (exact path is D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common), and GZDoom 4.1.3 (D:\gzdoom-bin-4-1-3-x64) didn’t discover them at all.

Meanwhile, an accomplice of mine who installed Strife: Veteran Edition on the same drive (D:\GAMES\_STEAM\steamapps\common\Strife) and placed a fresh version of GZDoom in the folder D:\GAMES\GZ_STRIFE\_____TEST2 had everything working, and both the original IWAD and the Veteran Edition IWAD popped up without problems.

What seems to be the issue here?

This sounds like it isn't getting the Steam paths from the system registry. Is that set up correctly?

Graf Zahl I should admit that for me it works correctly:

steam path: D:\GAMES\_STEAM\steamapps\common\Strife

gzdoom path: D:\GAMES\GZ_STRIFE\_____TEST2

That means that for you the registry is set up to find the Steam directories.

It finds my GOG Strife VE on my D drive (GZDoom is on C). I wish it wouldn't find it, but that's a separate issue.

Same for me, but I haven't found a good way to make Steam/GOG detection opt-in only. I'd also like to disable it by default.
