    It ended up having something to do with the packaged freedoom wad, removing it and running the registered doom fixed everything

    Out of curiosity, where did you get it packaged with Freedoom?

    The attributes screw up sometimes when you copy files from a Mac or when you drag them out of a ZIP archive using Windows Explorer's built in ZIP thing, so be careful.

    Where should you run the hbmenu then? I'm having the same problem with GZDoom crashing from Album hbmenu.

    Hold R while launching any game from the homescreen

    I'm new to this Switch thing. As far as I know to enter hbmenu I go to album and hold down R when selecting it. That's where I find GZDoom.

    I think I was using an outdated version of GZDoom and got v3 from the github. It works but it takes like a whole minute before anything happens. So I see a black screen for a minute. Also the menu has no skull when selecting which difficulty and options. Not sure why.

    Launching HBMENU through the album gives less memory to the applications ran through it. I'd advise using a forwarder NSP or redirect from a game title.

    Never use ALBUM to start homebrew. Always hold R while launching a GAME.

    This is amazing! I just got into playing Doom like 3 days ago, and jumped RIGHT into GZDoom, and Zandronum! I have a question though...

    Is there any way to get GZDoom to load a mod LIST? So I could play Complex doom or something? Or maybe play Brutal doom/Project Brutality on a different set of maps?

    I usually use ZDL to load a set of mods with GZDoom, or use Zandronum to load a list of mods together on it's own... but I don't know how I would do it in GZDoom. Or on the ZDoom port?

    Also! How does this GZDoom release differ from the one that is on the Homebrew App Store? OR is it the same?

    Any help would be great!

    I suppose it is the same, I didn't put it on HBStore myself.
    What do you mean mod list? You can load multiple mods by adding them all on the Files tab of the launcher.

    I understand that, but when loading multiple mods, sometimes you need a specific Load Order. That is really my question... Is there a way to get say 5 mods to load in a specific order?

    Well they load in the order they're in on the files tab.

    Perfect then! Thanks so much! Time to test Complex doom on my switch! I just installed FTPD and and gonna transfer all my wads from my PC!

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Okay so I am kind of confused... I put my Doom2.wad and my Complex Doom2.wad and my HPBarv17.wad into the iWads folder, but when I make a new profile on GZDoom it only lets me select one WAD...

    So how do I made it run all 3 of those WADs?

    doom2.wad goes into iwads. All mod files go into pwads. Make profile using doom2.wad (or use the default one), then select your mod files in the Files tab.

    Okay right after I wrote my last reply, that is what I did, I knew I did something wrong. So I now have it set up like this.

    My only issue is, it takes FOREVER to load, is that normal? My mods DID load! So thanks so much for the help! I am SUPER EXCITED for this! Hopefully someone ports Zandronum with Doomseeker now lol, I doubt that will ever happen though, not sure if it's even possible.

    Thanks again! ;]
