would be nice to tell us what description did you follow, and in general give more information. What you described is more or less useless, because contains no actual data but general information only.

Question

what more information do you need.

Its a source port that runs the doom iwad for playing doom. there that's your more description.

i don't need to give you the code because there is only a exe.

it said on this page if i had code errors to post them I do not just compiled and finished the simple source port

but having that simple issue of the compiled exe not running the iwad files.

simple question do you know how the exe runs the doom iwads. and how to get the exe to be configured and run the iwad.

I can't decide if you are asking us or telling us?

If that "doesn't compute", sucks to be you.

You get back what you put in.

You open up .zandronum/zandronum.ini

Put official doom wads in Doom folder

[IWADSearch.Directories]
Path=.
Path=/home/blah/Doom/
Path=$DOOMWADDIR
Path=~/.zandronum
Path=/usr/local/share/

[FileSearch.Directories]
Path=/home/blah/Doom/
Path=$DOOMWADDIR

Then in Zandronum folder where the program is there is a skins folder. This is where you place custom wads like brutal doom.

I've received a complaint that this was not very polite, however the one below it which came first is also not very polite.

While I understand that the question needed clarification, pan64 already made this point. If things were still unclear, the recommended LQ direction is to either ask for more clarification or leave the question alone.

@Habitual: Doing both of providing question guidance while also offering a taunt is probably not the best choice here.

@linuxfa: pan64's request for follow-up was asking for details related to the original problem description where it was stated that required packages were installed, directories and libraries were included, and the source was built. Therefore it would've been helpful to provide more detailed feedback describing the process or reference which led to the creation of this executable.

I don't know about doom, however I know code, as I'm sure many others on this site do. Further I know network communications programming if the term source port here is referring to a TCP or UDP communications port. Therefore this executable which you've created, where is the source for it? Something you've downloaded? Something you've written? Something you've installed? How did you derive the required packages, directories, and libraries? Were you following a reference of some type? The link here may be useful to help others with reviewing it so they may help you with your project that you've worked at for over six months. You seem to be asking how to use or open a source port, and to me that is how you would use BSD or similar code to communicate over IP using one of the two classical transport types. However seeing no code or reference, I and others cannot evaluate your question more clearly.

This thread has been closed. I would suggest a more clear question be used to create a new thread.

Once again, continued hostilities are not the best way to express ones self. Conditional apologies are also not the best choice here either.
