hey, I'm completely new to zdaemon and im having trouble getting started. I've got an iwad for doom2, but it's size is at 14263 kb. since it doesn't match the file size of any of the iwad versions in the faq section, i have no idea what version of doom2 i have. I've tried to load up zdaemon.exe for the heck of it anyways, but the screens goes black. I can hear the music and all, so i know that the program is running - i just cant see anything. what am i doing wrong, and what patches do i need to fix this if any patch can fix it?

Sounds like your doom2.wad may be fine and your graphics settings are knackered. Open Zdoom.ini, which you will find in the zdaemon folder, and look for the lines:

vid_defbits=8
vid_defheight=200
vid_defwidth=320

Change it to:

vid_defbits=8
vid_defheight=600
vid_defwidth=800

That should fix the problem of the graphics, if it doesn't try 640 x 480 instead.

The size to check the doom2.wad is measured in Bytes, not KiloBytes. Right click the file, go into properties and copy down the full File Size whilst making sure its not the 'File Size on Disk'.

Do you happen to be using a LCD monitor? My girlfriend has an LCD and this was a problem I had to correct for her. The reason this happens is that LCD monitors are pieces of crap and can't go to very many resolutions. Zdaemon's default is 320x240 so nothing is going to show up unless you modify the cfg. Of course, this proves difficult and most likely has turned a few people away from Zdaemon in the past. Thank you for bringing up this issue
