ZDoom front end of choice?

Post by Curunir »

Well, I hope I'm not being a topic spammer or anything, but I've been thinking. The front end means a lot to me and I always wobble back and forth mostly between two programs. I was wondering what you people use.

There's a neat little one called COMMAND.COM that I've been using for a while...

Frontend? When you can drag and drop?

Well anyway, if there WAS some option that I needed to set before loading the game, then it would be start->run->command.com. In Win98 at least, it automatically starts in the directory that windows has focus on.

The only launcher I know of is the cannonball launcher, more commonly reffered to as the cannon...

/me points an accusative finger to all command line geeks :roll:
This is plain wrong. Batch files are ok, but cmd line... woah, I'm still pwned by the majority so I'll' just shut it and stick with http://www.sonic.net/~mortlgrn/doom5.html#fe :D

I go *click* on the wad if it's a single file deal. Default for WAD files is to run ZDoom, and I haven't used a DOOM1 IWAD in forever. Right-click allows me the option of opening the wad in DeepSea or XWE. I don't need infinite variety--I'll pick difficulty at startup, I don't do multiplayer, and I can always IDCLEV or equivalent if I want to be somewhere besides MAP01.

Otherwise command line. There's not much I can't do from that 500x132 window ;)

All I see mentioned on these forums is DeepSea and Wad Author a couple of times. Ehh, don't you people use DoomBuilder?
And if not, WOE IS YOU! :P
