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.

having issues with getting doom to play on mac

Post by Shroomie »

so i'm using an intel mac (version 13.2.1) and i'm having issues with trying to actually play some doom, specifically when i open up the WAD i hear that signature boom sound-thing for a half-second, but it cuts off. the screen is black, theres no menu, nothing. there *is* however, Daisy's severed head for my mouse. I have uninstalled gzdoom, i have booted only the ultimate doom without any mods, i have gotten a new WAD, i have used doom 2, nothing.

What’s the hardware? What’s the version of GZDoom?

version of gzdoom is whatever you can download on the website right now, hardware is *probably* vulkan, before the error happened i was messing around with the renderer and whatever setting true color is under. i failed to remember to mention that, as well as that my hypothesis is that the wad won't open due to the vulkan/true color combo.

What model/manufacture year is your Mac? (You can find this information in the About box in the Apple menu.)

Open Terminal app, and execute the following command (adjust absolute path to GZDoom if it's not inside /Applications folder).

Code: Select all

/Applications/GZDoom.app/Contents/MacOS/gzdoom -iwad doom2
When the black screen appear, exit GZDoom. Post here entire text printed to Terminal window.

No surprise, shaders failed to compile for some reason. I would suggest to use Vulkan renderer by adding +vid_preferbackend 1 to command line.

when/how do i inpu +vid_preferbackend 1? in the terminal while gzdoom is running?

It should be added to the terminal command you use to run GZDoom. For example:

Code: Select all

./GZDoom.app/Contents/MacOS/gzdoom +vid_preferbackend 1
