So, literally the same directory as where ZDoom was downloaded to. MacOSX being GUI based, i imagine you have a specific downloads folder, no?
yes each user has a default download folder like on windows
putting IWADs in the download folder did not work
I needed to create the directory specified by ZDoom (~/Library/Application Support/zdoom/) and copy the IWADs to that directory for it to work
the pwads could be in any directory but I made a folder under documents for them
and being a windows guy, I had my fair share of problems trying to map a location in bash to a location in the GUI ... but eventually I created the directory in the right place using bash and used the GUI to copy the IWADs... I couldn't figure out how to get bash to copy them using the cp command
I tried a lot of different commands like:
cp ./freedoom1.wad ~/Library/Application Support/zdoom/
and variations of that, but each time the cp command just gave me the "how to use me" text
I never found the ~/Library/Preferences/zdoom.ini
but atleast now zdoom works and I can play all the old games and even add as many wads as I want... I still prefer the way I can do it on windows where I just make bat files though
however, hopefully this old mac can help me become better at using bash, since I also have some Linux computers that have bash
