Installing Brutal Doom mod has no effect

Wed Mar 17, 2021 9:43 pm

I am trying to install the latest Brutal Doom mod (Along with the metal soundtrack and the 9.0 expansion pack for the Brutal Doom v21 mod) for Ultimate Doom and it has no effect on the game. I am also trying to use the GZDoom port that I downloaded as well. I am not sure if I am using the Steam's Doom port instead of using GZDoom and the files that I renamed and added to the base file of the game is only compatible with the GZDoom source port.


This is the YouTube video that I watched to do this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1CqHYnRnfQ

And images of the files that are in Ultimate Doom's base folder named have been attached to this post.

Any input would be much appreciated.

Start over and use these instructions instead. I don't know who keeps telling people to replace EXEs in Steam with GZDoom, but that is not how this is supposed to work, and many people accidentally break things trying to do that.

Additional question: How do I run both the Brutal Doom .pk3 file and the Hell on Earth starter pack w/ fixed bugs .wad file together on GZDoom? Would I need to create a batch file? Would I be able to attach additional files to run on top of GZdoom this way? Thank you in advance.

You can use one of Doom launchers. I personally use Rocket Launcher (https://github.com/Doommarine23/RocketLauncher2).

Do I set any of the files along with everything else within the GZDoom folder? Or can I launch Rocket Launcher 2 from anywhere and add the files?

And also, I am getting the error "PLAYPAL not found". Any way to fix?

I have Rocket Launcher installed in one directory, GZDoom - in other and doom2.wad and mods in third.
