    Is there a way to make it boot faster or is it just how it is?

    I don't know, try it. This only merges changes from mainline GZDoom.
    Don't know about profiles, are you sure your exfat isn't getting corrupted or something?

    Not sure, I will check.

    I was moving a lot of files in and out of the PWAD folder, so maybe.

    I haven't really played doom in a long time, but this new chapter by romero has sparked my interest tbh. I probably couldn't just dive right in tho, would need to warm up on some easier chapters I expect. I'm pretty sure I completed the main game back when it was new, but I haven't really played FPSs in general in years.

    This also runs games that run in the Doom engine too so you have access to Doom, Heretic, Hexen and Strife. All great games. So you're spoiled for choice when you want to dive in.

    Thank you so much for throwing together this port. I am not a fan of chocolate doom and the other doom port doesn't work on my switch due to higher FW.

    I do have a question concerning the HUD. I am went thru the options and searched online. How can I restore the vanilla doom HUD? I am a fan of it. Thank you much!

    That's one of the things listed in known bugs and I'm sure it's being worked on but it's worth the wait!

    How are you all getting Sigil working? I am selecting in from the pwads and it just loads regular ol DOOM or DOOMII

    Any plans of listing this on the homebrew app store?

    You have to use the Ultimate Doom IWAD and add SIGIL.WAD (and SIGIL_SHREDS.WAD if you have it) in the custom files tab, then it will appear as episode 5.

    New release to sync with GZDoom 4.1.3. No other changes.

    Do you plan to fix the issues with the joystick resetting in later updates or do you only plan to update according to when gzdoom actually does?

    I'm not sure why but wads in the pwads folder aren't showing up in the files menu when i click custom file it just says no files. The iwads are showing up correctly though for both doom 1 and 2

    Yes, eventually.
    Check the archive bits on the files and fix them via Hekate if necessary. If that doesn't do anything, give me a screenshot of your pwads folder.

    Just run latest Hekate, then select Tools -> Fix SD files attributes -> All files except Nintendo folder or whatever it's called.

    Gzdoom keeps crashing back to the hbmenu and the launcher does the same once I try to launch a wad.

    First, check error.log in the gzdoom folder, if it exists. If it doesn't, turn on "Write log" in the launcher and try again, then check gzdoom.log in the gzdoom folder.
    Also, make sure you're not running this from Album hbmenu.
