View Full Version : OS X DoomsDay and Custom Maps
February 9th, 2005, 10:13 AM
I have a custom level called Batman Doom, it's more of a mod I guess and was wondering how to run this. I tried selecting Batman.wad for the launcher but the application just quits. Doom2.wad runs fine though. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome to NewDoom forums.
How exactly did you run this? I'm just guessing (by the way that you put it) that you put the file path in "Browse..." button, and if that's the case, it's not correct.
To run jDoom with any custom wad, follow these instructions:
1. Go to the folder where MiniStart is contained.
2. Right-click (or ctrl-click) on MiniStart and select "Show package contents".
3. Open the Contents folder and repeat step two with "Doomsday" (should be an .app file in the top-left corner)
4. Open the Contents folder of Doomsday.app, open Resources/Data/jdoom.
5. Place the desired files in the jdoom folder.
6. Run MiniStart and select the IWAD, as in PUBLISHED BY ID, i.e. doom2.wad, doom.wad, plutonia.wad or tnt.wad AND NO OTHERS, and make sure that the game at the top matches the IWAD.
7. Go down to "Custom Options..." and enter this (without the quotes), where *.* would be the desired file:
"-file }Data/jdoom/*.*" and press play.
NOTE: if the file is jDoom specific and includes .ded files, then put *.ded in Defs/jdoom, and enter this:
"-file }Data/jdoom/*.* -def }Defs/jdoom/*.ded" and press play.
If you play jHexen or jHeretic, you would put the files in Data/jHexen or Data/jHeretic, and .ded's in Deds/jHexen or Deds/jHeretic.
This should solve any problems with that.

Heh, Ace. We seem to have become experts on Mac jDooM trickery, what with our jDRP adventures. :P
I still need to figure out how to use custom music, like what's in the d64mus.wad. Any ideas? Just putting the wad in the folder with the other wads doesn't cut it, it seems.

Yeah, and what about .ogg files? I wanted to play the enhanced cool versions of the original songs (remixed versions) and I couldn't get those to work, either.
Someone should study Doomsday OS X really hard and make a manual for it, or something.
I'd do it if I knew enough about it and web page developing, but I don't. Plus I'm too lazy and unmotivated. :p *crazy*

I'm taking a rough guess that it'll take some audio.ded tweaking.
