    That likely means you have the files in the wrong place or you have a modified wad file.

    The 3dsx version requires the wad file in the same directory as the 3dsx file. The cia version requires the wad file to be in the exact directory specified in the installation instructions in the link I provided.

    I recommend deleting the /3ds/prboom3ds/prboom.cfg file. You likely either copied the file from a pc, used the sd card in another device, or messed with the video mode in the general menu. only 8 bit video mode is supported. if it gets set higher then you get a corrupted screen. you can always edit it manually in a text editor if you want to track down the setting(s?) to change.

    Yo, @elhobbs, sorry to be a nuisance, but did you have a chance to look into the problem with doom_weapon_toggles? This is a great port, but accidentally switching to the wrong shotgun all the time when playing Doom 2 is real annoying.

    Yes, but only to the point that I have no idea what you are talking about. Can you be more specific?

    The option in weapons setup to "enable fist/chainsaw & sg/ssg toggle" (doom_weapon_toggles in prboom.cfg) seems to be always enabled. So if you bind the shotgun & super shotgun to different touch screen buttons in Doom 2, hitting the shotgun button will bring up the ssg instead if you are carrying both weapons.

    While this thread is semi-alive, is there any way to map the function keys?

    Do you mean F1 etc? There is no input mechanism to generate keys events for F1. What are you trying to accomplish that can’t be done with the available keys/buttons?

    you can change the keys for this in the menu. you could try changing the keyboard/bottom screen layout - and map this to one of the 8 AUX buttons that show on the left and right edges of the screen. I tried to make them big so that you could easily (-ish?) push them without the stylus.

    Did you get a chance to investigate that issue with weapon switching I brought up earlier?

    pushy much? :)
    that settings doesnt appear to do anything...however, I think you can get the desired behavior.
    if you change the 2nd choice weapon from 9 (best shotgun) to 3 (sg) - then pressing 3 will switch to the single shotgun (it will still toggle to ssg if you are on sg already). this may also cause you to not switch to ssg when you pick it up though... I will leave that to you to figure out.

    I'm not sure that you can in hexen, it's control options aren't quite as extensive as dooms, it's no big deal though.

    Whenever I wanted to swap weapons I just pushed the number on the touchscreen(1 for chainsaw and 3 for shotgun) to swap to the alternates(chainsaw <-> fist / shotgun <-> super shotgun).

    Is there anything that can be done about the stretched/distorted GUI?

    Currently? No.
    I was thinking that the hud and menus should be moved to the bottom screen. But I have not been particularly motivated to put any effort into making changes.

    That is literally the behavior that they wanted to avoid. But yeah - that is what I do as well.
