Help! I'm clearly overlooking something. Cant run map!

Thu Dec 23, 2021 1:03 pm

Hello!

I have a little map I made in UDB using Doom 2 as its only resource. UDMF format. I can test it just fine in UDB.

In ZDL launcher, I have Doom 2 selected and only my WAD loaded up.

ZDL doesn't go to my map. It just launches Doom 2.
- Map name is MAP01
- Player start, but no exit placed
- only a handful of monsters with a simple script (that works properly when testing through UDB)
- dragging my wad onto GZDoom.exe only loads Doom 2 as well
- GZDoom - 4.7.1 (most recent)

What have I overlooked?

Thanks for your time,
Dustin

In order to test:
* What GZDoom version are you using?
* Can you post the map as an attachment?

That is odd, ZDL works for me
The thing is, the pwad is named MAP01.wad but the map lump is named WARMAP.
Spoiler:


If all else fails, open your pwad with Slade3.

Rename the lump WARMAP to MAP01 and save.
Spoiler:


If you want to see the name of the map as WARMAP, then make a new, minimal lump MAPINFO and save
Spoiler:


Note: be careful where you place the MAPINFO lump

And to quickly change to the map after starting, typing

map warmap

at the console should do it.

[edit]
FWiW maps inside a PK3 use their filename. So if this WAD was inside a PK3 in the MAPS folder, the internal WARMAP name would be ignored and MAP01 would be used.
