If you want help you're going to have to provide lots of info. Like what is your hardware, what is your operating system, what version of GZDoom/LZDoom/whatever you're using, what mods you're loading, how you're loading it, what you've already tried for fixing the problem, and anything else that is even remotely relevant to the problem.

We can't magically figure out what it is if you're going to be vague, and if we feel like you're just wasting our time with guessing games we will act like that's what you're really doing and won't help you.

Any texture pack don't work in GZDoom.

Post by VVanTuz2OO2 »

Hello everybody.

I know that DHTP has some compatibility problems, but I did tried many versions of it. But other texture related mods should work at least. Doomenator's Dark Textures won't work too. The only ones working is JFO's for HUD and text. \ UPD: any of the Cacodemon's Texture pack do not work either!

I tried all of the following:
- Dragged on executable
- .bat file gzdoom.exe -file anymod.pk3
- Autoload (checked many times that I did everything right) in ini. Btw I had tough times separating lines in that generating ini, what a mess.
- Tried it on basic ZDoom

I did tried running from the the same directory, tried separating IWADS and mods - results are identical.

Any suggestions? I had also read countless posts from here and Zandronum forums, but none of that helped me solve it.

Have you tried using the "skins" folder? Make it if it doesn't exist. Anything in there has to end in .wad. (even if it's a PK3)

Make sure you aren't trying to run it from Program Files, and make sure you're using the right IWAD.

Check your console output and see if the file you're loading is actually being loaded (you'll see it next to the IWAD).
