Re: d.WAD

Is that from your system? ie has Steam created a d.wad on your machine too? If so, I guess it's just what Steam does. Also, I get the same MD5 checksum for my copy of Ultimate Doom.wad so it looks like it's just a normal 1.9 doom.wad.

I guess it's just a mistake from the guys who packaged the games for Steam. There's no such redundant file in the other Dooms nor in Heretic and Hexen.

To anyone who Googled these two filenames, wound-up here, but could not get a clear answer because of the arguing and speculation:

Yes, the 'd.WAD' and 'DOOM.WAD' files packaged with the Steam version of Ultimate Doom are 100% identical to each other. There is no difference between them at all, and it doesn't matter which one you use.
