    I'm having trouble compiling the .ds.gba rom, it won't execute the "copy dsHereticCopy.ds.gba /B + hereticfs.wad /B dsHeretic.ds.gba" line correctly. So could someone who has already compiled it upload it and pm me the link?

    you are compiling from sources or you are unable to use the included .bat file to make the .ds.gba file?

    if the second is the case then no one can send you the file as it will include the copyrighted wad and music.

    just follow the instructions:

    I'm unable to use the bat file to make the .ds.gba file, I have followed the instructions but it won't complete the last step...

    Have you tried looking as to why it can't complete the last step?
    Perhaps the files aren't being created due to some issue prior and thus the .bat is failing and can't copy the files that happen to not exist.

    It's supposed to copy the dsHereticCopy.ds.gba and hereticfs.wad files into a new file called dsHeretic.ds.gba, the command is "copy dsHereticCopy.ds.gba /B + hereticfs.wad /B dsHeretic.ds.gba" ,but it always says "dsHeretic.ds.gba does not exist" and it creates a file called "+".

    I can only reiterate my previous post at this point. I suggest you read it again and possibly if there is anything that needs to somehow be clarified in what I said, feel free to ask.
    What I can tell you about your current situation is that NOBODY is going to be able to solve your problem unless you put in some more effort besides running the .bat file and telling the output. You are going to have to check the .bat file and see what step is failing to give you the .ds.gba...
    This means you may need to look up a reference sheet for commandline and try to find what is wrong with your setup that the .bat file requires.

    I've never used DS Heretic before, but that copy syntax doesn't seem right. Try:
    Code:
    copy /b dsHereticCopy.ds.gba + hereticfs.wad dsHeretic.ds.gba

    It's correct. You might want to check your msdos commands a second time. Particularly "copy /B".

    that's the way it is in the .bat file and it works fine here.

    i think the issue is that he didn't unpack gbfs into the directory and/or rename the heretic wad correctly.

    Yes, I did everything right, I'm not a newbie when it comes to computers. I'm using wine in Linux Mint so wine may not be emulating windows very well for this .bat file or something...

    instead of trying to run ms dos commands in linux, why not just figure out the linux equivalent for the commands in the bat file? cat is the same as copy /b file1+file2 isn't it? (cat fileA fileB > ResultFile). if that works you would just need to figure out how to run the gbfs command.

    I did that, but the resulting file didn't work on the emulator I had on the PC.

    .ds.gba files ran via passme. correct me if i am wrong, but i am not aware of a ds emu that runs them. then again, i really don't play around with ds emulation all that much.

    It works with no$gba if you wanna use an emulator.
