I run a three-screen setup and for some reason, Windows 10 likes to 're-arrange' the numbers assigned to my screens and this often results that the game runs on the wrong screen (1680x1050 letter-boxed on a 1280x1024 or 1024x768 screen isn't pretty :X). I know that there is a console command (vid_adapter) that I frequently use but to have such an option available in the launcher (or/and in the menu of the game itself) where I can see which screen is going to used, would be a very welcome addition.
2) Will the ability be added to play GZDoom on more then one monitor ??
Just for the heck of it. If I can play Alien Isolation and the last Deus Ex games and have my remote connection to the office on more then one screen, why not GZ Doom ??
3) Will be ability be added for GZDoom to look by default for IWAD's one folder up ??
This is something that I have come across multiple source ports and isn't limited to GZDoom only. I run a tight and clean folder structure where the IWAD's are located in my \Games\ZDoom folder together with ZDoom's latest 2.8.1 release. All other ports that I use and have used, all had their own folder in my ZDoom folder (ZDoom\GZDoom for GZDoom, ZDoom\Zandronum for Zandronum, ZDoom\Odamex for Odamex, etc, etc, etc). I purposely do this so that the files from one source port cannot accidental disrupt or completely break the functions and/or features from one or more of the other source ports and to be honest, I don't think I am the only who has organised its folder structure this way.
For GZDoom, I've manually added in the .INI file the line "Path=.." to the [IWADSearch.Directories] so that GZDoom (and all Zdoom derivates who are using the same format) will look for the IWAD's one folder up but the moment I setup a clean install or install GZDoom on another computer using the same folder structure as described above, I have to add the line again in my .INI file. I would like to see that GZDoom and LZDoom by default adds the following lines into the *.INI configuration file:
To broaden this subject and I don't know if they are active as well here, I would like to suggest the same feature to be included in their respective ports who do not use the ZDoom and derivates .INI style/format to store their configurations (for Chocolate Doom and Crispy Doom, I have the use the -iwad ..\doom.wad parameter in order to play those ports), so that I don't have to copy all of my IWAD's (doom.wad, doom2.wad, heretic.wad, hexdd.wad, tnt.wad, plutonia.wad, doom1.wad, nerve.wad, doom2bfg.wad, hexen.wad, freedoom1.wad, freedoom2.wad) in each and every respective source port folder.
