Chocolate Doom Opensuse 11.4 64 bit

I have tried to run Chocolate Doom on 64 bit opensuse but it will not load. Is there any 64 bit updates for this game? Where can I find them please? Website chocolate-doom-1.6.0-1.1.i586.rpm - openSUSE 11.4 - Download says that there are 64 bit files for this game in the Opensuse directory but I cannot see them, does anyone know if the website is correct? Also how to get the game to work please? Search Results

You are the master, thank you once again for directing me to the right spot. I’m still learning and not %100 familiar where to find everything, many many thanks. I have uninstalled and reinstalled from both links where you directed me but when I try to load the game it shows the bouncy icon but does not load. Any other thoughts about how we may be able to fix it.
Many thanks

try starting it from a terminal

see what errors it shows

Here is the terminal info
“Chocolate Doom 1.6.0
Z_Init: Init zone memory allocation daemon.
zone memory: 0x7f1f2c4c8010, 1000000 allocated for zone
DEH_Init: Init Dehacked support.
Game mode indeterminate. No IWAD file was found. Try
specifying one with the ‘-iwad’ command line parameter.”

I don’t quite know what to do with it, sorry. Also when I changed the icon to display the terminal info, the icon has disappeared from the games menu, I have searched for it in the menu and it shows but how do I get it back into games

I really know nothing about this game.
FAQ - Chocolate Doom

Whenever you start a application from a terminal. As I asked. You should just open a terminal and type the command to start the game.

Ill do that next time, this time ill just uninstall and reinstall. Did the terminal info help you

Not really
You can google each line yourself and see
There are plenty of games that actually work in linux (and I suppose this might, given the necessary fiddling)

Have a look in software manager now you have the games repo

Hello darren787,

It needs a .wad file, AFAIK Chocolate Doom is only a ported doom engine.
This means that it doesn’t contain any game information, only the code.

To run the game you’ll need an original copy of doom, doom2 or some other games using the doom engine.

If you haven’t got one I recommend you try FreeDoom.
It’s also in the games repository.

Good luck!:wink:

Thanks for that, hows the weather where you are, its overcast and raining here at the moment.

Hello darren787,

Glad I could help, the weather isn’t great here either.
