Contrary to popular belief, we are not all-knowing-all-seeing magical beings!

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.

"Could not find patch set" even though my sound fonts folder has the gzdoom.sf2

Post by Legin7 »

I cant seem to run GZDoom because when it run it it gives me this prompt

Could not find patch set C:/Users/SEBAST~1/AppData/Local/Temp/Rar$EXa17548.9456//soundfonts/gzdoom.sf2.

I have seen similar posts to this which had their gzdoom.sf2 files missing from the soundfonts files but I have them so I dont know what to do.

Given the path from the error message -- are you attempting to run GZDoom from within a ZIP file?

Try to extract a GZDoom install in a normal folder and see how it runs then.
