Basic Help

Post by inkblot42 » Sun Oct 30, 2011 21:54

Hello there, sorry for being a huge noob, but can I have a bit of help with running the WAD Paranoid? I literally downloaded GZDoom a few minutes ago put the Doom2 IWAD in the folder and tried to run Paranoid. it was full of exclamation points and the skybox was checkerboarded. I am new to wads in general, and your help would be appreciated.

I must admit, I'm not sure what you have done wrong here. It sounds like some of the data is not loading (various actor definitions, the sky graphics etc). If you drag and drop Paranoid.pk3 onto GZDoom it should run with everything loaded. It certainly works for me™.

My best guesses are:

a) You have unpacked the PK3 and tried to load some, but not all, of the data.
b) You have downloaded Zdoom instead of GZDoom
