Description

I have read the other thread about jDooM crashing when
E2, E3, or E4 are selected. My problem is that I can't
even get E1 to load. DooM2 works fine, but I can't get
KickStart to recognize DooM as an IWAD. I have
doom.wad as well as doom.gwa in my Date\jDooM folder,
but when I open KickStart and go to the Games|Wads
tab I don't see doom.wad. I see doom2.wad, but not
doom.wad.

I have read the documentation as well as the info on the
web site, but I can't find an answer. I'm using v1.14.4

I would appreciate any help.

This doesn't appear to be a problem with Doomsday as
such. You could always try the simplest possible way to
launch a game. In the command prompt, go to the
Doomsday base directory and type:

jdoom -file c:\games\doom\doom.wad

(or whatever your WAD path is)
