Got a cool project idea but nothing else? Put it in the project ideas thread instead!

Projects for any Doom-based engine (especially 3DGE) are perfectly acceptable here too.

ZDL Maker - Does your mod have multiple files?

Post by Sir Robin »

Does your mod have multiple files that need a particular load order?
It's kind of a hassle for the user to have to read through your documentation to figure out how to load everything, when all they want to do is hurry up and play the game already.
Wish you could include a ZDL file with your mod files pre-loaded in the proper order?
Too bad ZDL uses absolute paths, and you have no idea where your user is going to dump it.

I wrote a quick batch file for the user to run. I takes your provided ordered list of files and generates a ZDL file with absolute paths.
Assuming the user already has their GZDoom and ZDL setup properly, this will get them playing your mod lickety-split.
