Hi, I'm using vavoom the first time. It looks really great! But I've a rookie question. Is it possible to start other IWAD games than the default ones? For example I've also Hexen: Deathkings of the Dark Citadel. I had tried to start it with the -file option. With the -iwaddir I can only define the directory. Both doesn't work. What is with custom levels? Is it possible to start them? I'm using the linux version 1.29 of vavoom. I'm thankful for any hint.

As i know, the Hexen Expansion set can be played only using it's IWAD. In the case you want to run the game with a command line (MS-DoS/Linux Shell), you have to use the "-file" option, instead of "-iwaddir". That means that you will be using the Original Hexen IWad as main WAD, and the Expansion WAD as a PWAD. But if you are on a Windows OS, you may use the Vavoom Launcher (vlaunch.exe) or this other Launcher, designed for Vavoom too (i recommend it): <!-- s8) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cool.gif" alt="8)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8) --> [url:jm7pvodm]http://vavoom-engine.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=1493

Thanks, that works. I always left out the -hexen option. Now with both -hexen and the -file option it rocks. <!-- s:plasma: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/plasma.gif" alt=":plasma:" title="Plasma Gun" /><!-- s:plasma: -->
