ZDL question

Post by BlazingPhoenix » Sun Feb 19, 2006 1:17

I was wondering if you, Bio, could update ZDL so it would work with SRB2

Why? Last time I checked, SRB2 isin't based on ZDoom.

ZDoom Launceratorizer.
The only ports to be officially supported by ZDL are ZDoom variants. The only reason I put a "port" option in there is because there are so many different versions of ZDoom that are incompatible.

If you tell me whet ZDL needs to do to launch SRB2, I might be able to think of a way around it.

That's no excuse - EDGE works with ZDL to a degree (warping doesn't work but it works).

ZDL should be able to support srb2.srb better, because when I tried putting that in as the I-wad file(which is the IWAD file for SRB2 anyway), every time I started SRB2 in single-player, it says I need a wad put in first, and I thought that got really annoying.

It's a Zdoom and derivative launcher. Other ports will work with it to a greater or lesser extent because all Doom ports share at least some command line options and requirements. However, unless Bio wants to cater for all the quirks and special options of the various ports that exist (and thereby probably ruin ZDL's biggest attraction: its simplicity) I think he's quite right to stick to his Zdoom only policy.
