There is no "HERETIC.EXE" but there is a "HERETIC" file and it is a white box, thats what i click to start the game and play it. There is no "SETUP.EXE" but there is "SETUP" which is a white box, which is what i click to mess with the set up.
Ur picture looks exactly like mine except sum or ur files have ".EXE" on the end compared to some of mine that dont, like i mentioned. Other then that its exactly the same.
OMG I GOT IT TO WORK I JUST RESTARTED THE DOSBOX AND TRIED IT AGAIN. well i got no sound but it plays in a small window, makes the graphics a little better but i like it full screen.. but how i get the sound to work now??
Nooblet. If you just kept typing it wouldn't work, it's still looking at program files, probably.
Anyway, you have to turn the sound in setup.exe, you said you know how to do that, so just go ahead and turn that on.
If you want to run it fullscreen, you have to run DOSBOX fullscreen. To do that, first, make a shortcut to the desktop if you haven't done that already. Right click on the shortcut. Choose "properties". In the field calld "target", where it says:
"C:\Program Files\DOSBox-0.72\dosbox.exe" -conf "C:\Program Files\DOSBox-0.72\dosbox.conf"
Go to the end of that field, and, AFTER the last closing quotation mark, add a space, and type: "-fullscreen" (without quotation marks)
Then, just run that shortcut. It will make a big dosbox window but it will work the same and once it runs heretic it would be fullscreen.
Also, when it starts to slow down, press Ctrl+F12 until it stops slowing down. Like, 10-20 times, depends on your computer.
sweet i got it, dude thanks for bearing with me, sorry for me being such a noob, i learned alot though. hey i want to get HeXen i tried following ur instructions at ur first post but i dont understand where to get it from, like where to dl it from. also do i do the same thing for it to get sound for it as i did with Heretic?
ok sweet, hey now one last thing can you help me get that Texture package u were talking about, and will the thing work for both games, if u dont mind ill prolly need walked through it im a real noob, but i love these two games i played them when i was younger. If u dont want to u dont hav to uve did alot already lol.
Anyway... I have to go to sleep, so I will decribe everything here, maybe you will be able to do it yourself:
After you downloaded that deng-1.8.6 or whatever, unpack it, and put the folder into your C:\ directory. Rename it to "Doomsday".
You will have to activate file extensions or you won't be able to see anything. To do this:
1. Open some directory. Could be anything, like C:\Heretic or just My Computer.
2. On the top, click "Tools"
3. Click "Folder Options."
4. Click the "View" tab.
5. Under that field labeled "Advanced Settings" in small type, with a lot of checkboxes in there, find the one named "Hide extensions for known file types" UNCHECK it.
6. Click Apply, Click OK. Now, you are done. All files (not folders) should now have some sort of extension in the form of .exe or .txt or .rar or whatever.
For heretic, go to C:\heretic, and COPY HERETIC.WAD. Not heretic.exe, heretic.wad.
Go into Doomsday\Data\jHeretic\ and paste that heretic.wad in there That folder already has jHeretic.wad, don't pay attention to it.
Then, you can go to C:\Doomsday and run jHeretic.exe and enjoy the new graphics.
With heXen, same exact thing, but you need hexen.wad and you put it into jHexen folder and you run jHexen.exe
To get textures (these are for Heretic): click HERE This file is heavy. Only download it after you have downloaded everything else, or dial-up will screw you up.
After you get those textures (don't unpack yet), move them to the Doomsday/data/jheretic directory. In there, create a folder called "textures". Unpack the file in there. You are done, now you can run heretic with new textures, using jheretic.exe
P.S.: my notebook, which is about 6 years old, slows down when running Heretic with textures, so if you have a really old computer (6+ years old) the textures may be too heavy on your system. In that case, just rename the textures folder to something else.
ok something isnt adding up so when you have time if u could help me out that would be good ill be on later cause i got school and soccer.
Heres what i did. I went and unchecked the "hide extensions for known file types" after i had extracted the doomsday folder and put the whole folder into c:\
Then u said everything should have new file types like the ones u mentioned but mine didnt change, then i got a little confused on the whole .wads
So i dont really know how to get it working and where to stick stuff.
Like now do i stick the the jHeretic.exe in the jHeretic Folder which has the jHeretic.wad in it. cause when i tried just double clicking the jHeretic.exe it was like no specific "IWAD" specified or whatever.
Well ill be on later if u want u can type ur awnser in w/e as ill be on later and read it. THANKS
Now i'm stuck in the cloud fortress and i have no objective and the whole thing is again like a maze with no monsters left, can anyone help me ?
Cloud Fortress is pretty complicated, I'm not sure what are you supposed to do at the moment. Perhaps you should look for buttons, they are all kind of hidden, and they close books in a portal where Molkavian is hiding.
Twilight Realm, you are not following my instructions, you are skipping through them and doing everything your way, so, of course, you have problems. I don't see what kind of confusion could you have with all the .wad files, it's very plain, find the .wad, copy it to the appropriate folder, and run the appropriate .exe I never told you to move jHeretic.exe, it has to stay put in the Doomsday root folder, don't move it.
