View Full Version : No Music!!
December 21st, 2004, 07:05 AM
I recently bought Collector's Edition Doom after losing my previous dooms and have not played them for several years, I installed the games on my pc and then I loaded it from Doom 95 and there was a major problem, no music was playing when I stood in the Entryway, actually no music played anywhere in all games, there was SFX, I could shoot my gun and hear the sound, but no music, so I checked my computer for music volumes and I turned them up, and tried again, but NO MUSIC! can someone tell me what to do to regain the music, music is important for giving me the adrenaline to kill demons!

That's easy, just get a Doom port like Doomsday, Legacy, ZDoomGL, or Risen3D all of which are excellent. Doom 95 sucks I don't know why anybody would use that even on an older computer Legacy plays great.

i downloaded doomsday, but it says it is missing a required .DLL file, whatever it is, and it won't work, is there anything else that I can do?

I need a bit more info than that. Do you have DirectX 9.0c and the latest drivers for your monitor, graphics and sound?

yes, I have good graphics, audio, and video cards, I got the Legacy source port, and it has major problems, it says "CreateFile FAILED, unable to pass agruements" and then it says "The operation completed successfully", than it goes back to the menu of Legacy, I have everything right, I browsed and found the wad. I wanted to play, and put the legacy program on top, there is some problem with Legacy

try ZDoom. its the easiest to use. just download ZDoom, extract the files to wherever your Doom2.wad is, and start it up. http://zdoom.org

Any doom source ports you use in most cases you will need to put your doom,doom2 etc. iwad/game wad in source ports working folder e.g, Doom2.wad.
Or extract the sourceport in your doom/doom2 game directory like MasterOfPuppets was saying, and then run any setup or launcher it may have. other than doomsday, you would put the iwad for doom,doom2 etc. in the data/jdoom folder.
Myself I keep the source ports separate and put my iwads in each :)
so yeah drop your iwad in a sourceport folder like it would say in the docs an run da biotch with its launcher *grin*
if your still having problems running a sourceport after readin into the docs and what not , you might check your harddrive for bad spots or a corrupted iwad heh
they all should run for you.
anyhows about the sound/music , i saw this a few days ago http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=110
i havnt tried it so i dont know if it works yet though, just backup your Doom/Doom2.exe(s) before running the patch.
for standard Doom/Doom2 and other older id games.

I downloaded ZDoom, and I do have all the doom wads, and it says it is missing some DLL file, every damn source port I download says it is missing something! I downloaded lots of them except from Gamershell because their downloads never initializes and starts, I waited an hour for one to start

hmm , I wonder if you have all your runtime dll's installed in your windows system directory?
do you have problems like this with any other games? other than doom source ports?
could you get the dll file name(s)? if so , google the file name and plop it in your windows/system dir. then try running your games again. there could have been a time when you uninstalled something and ended up removing some of those runtime files?
This isn't a common problem but I have heard of this happening. sorta like a doom editor I know of called wintex , its missing like 2 runtime dll's and it wont work until you acquire them one way or the other. on the other hand i'v never seen a doom source port missing stuff. it really sounds like you might be missing those dll's in your system folder.
