How do I make a custom shortcut for Hexen: Deathkings of the Dark Citadel?

Post by NicNamSam »

I've tried many combinations in the target line, including -iwad HEXEN.WAD -file HEXENDD.WAD. Is it even possible? The wiki says HEXENDD is "technically" an IWAD, but it contains limited data. Is it a weird exception that can't fit the command line arguments? Or is there a way?

Normally when you load HexDD as an IWAD, what happens is that ZDoom will automatically load Hexen first. Provided it finds Hexen.wad, of course.

So really -iwad hexdd is all that's needed.

Also the file is named hexdd, not hexendd. That may be why your attempts fail.

If or when you set up GZDoom properly with the IWADs (see the ini file),
then you can just select HEXDD from the launcher window

Yes, I have that, I wanted a direct shortcut I could quickly launch through Steam
