  • Easy Mission Pack boot for Mission Packs (Darkplaces)

    Well initially made these for Toxic Scrag whom was having problems in Win 7 editing the shortcuts to properly boot Darkplaces with -rogue and -hipnotic commands.
    Well recently tried getting a friend to do the same, and he too had issues and was in Win 7. So I figured there's likely more users out there who have the same issues.

    So I made 2 exes from my bat file. Gave them the box art as their icons.

    To install, simply drop them into the SAME folder as darkplaces.exe and then run them.
    The exe must be in the same folder as Darkplaces.exe - so placing it on your desktop or other folder will not work. To do that, right click and create shortcut and place that where ever you wish.

    DOWNLOAD

    Keep in mind this is just boots Darkplaces to use the mission packs. Adding command line options (like +map e1m1) will NOT work.

    hmm..... Quoth? That's strange, it's not documented and I didn't test it... Maybe it works with every mod?....

    Oh, my bad... Looks like I was talking nonsense...
    But there's something I want people in this thread to know:
    Excerpt from DarkPlaces Readme:

    Supported games:
    Quake : -quake, this is active by default, gamedirs: id1
    Quake: Scourge of Armagon : -hipnotic or hipnotic in executable name or path, gamedirs: hipnotic, id1
    Quake: Dissolution of Eternity : -rogue or rogue in executable name or path, gamedirs: rogue, id1
    Nexuiz : -nexuiz or nexuiz in executable name or path, gamedirs: data
    Nehahra : -nehahra or nehahra in executable name or path, gamedirs: nehahra, id1
    GoodVsBad2 : -goodvsbad2 or gvb2 in executable name or path, gamedirs: rts
    BattleMech : -battlemech or battlemech in executable name or path, gamedirs: base
    PrydonGate : -prydon or prydon in executable name or path, gamedirs: prydon
    These games are considered officially supported, if any problems are seen, please make sure you are running the latest version of the game and engine, if you are, please report the problem.
    Which basically means:
    1. Create a copy of darkplaces.exe
    2. Rename it to hipnotic.exe or rogue.exe or nexuiz.exe or nehahra.exe or gvb2.exe or battlemech.exe or prydon.exe to run the respective game/mod
    3. No command line is required

    I thought those were custom builds of dp.exe with modified source code.

    Sorry for the long time.
    I thought no one use this. This are just compiled .bat files with a nice icon.

    Download BAT.zip from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

    You don't need t compile a bath file to start the mission packs. Copy darkplaces.exe and paste it into the same directory. Rename the new exe to either hipnotic.exe or rogue.exe. That's all it takes, actually.
